This coming Thursday will be a big day for general manager Ned Colletti, who will need to decide on a course of action. Colletti could possibly trade for another starter to solidify the Los Angeles Dodgers rotation, address another part of the team or stand pat.
If Colletti is going to trade for Jon Lester of the Boston Red Sox, it’s likely going to come at a big expense. The Red Sox are reportedly asking for either of Dodgers top prospects — Corey Seager or Joc Pederson.
Pederson and Seager are two prospects the Dodgers have stated would not be included in any trade, though that could have been more posturing than fact.
The Red Sox have also looked at Matt Kemp, who could be another trade option for the Dodgers. Trading the outfielder may be difficult however, given his five years and $108 million remaining on his contract.
