The Dodgers are in full offseason mode, meaning they are now involved in every major trade and free agent rumor out there. Buckle in for a long offseason, because it’s probably going to be like this into March for the reigning World Series Champions. Let’s dive into some of the news from the past week!
Former Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger is taking advantage of the latest lawsuit against the Houston Astros. Bolsinger alleges that Houston is part of the reason he was not able to get a job in the big leagues after the Astros rocked him in 2016.
Los Angeles is reportedly close to making another huge international signing. Jesus Galiz is one of the top international prospects available this period, and he apparently chose LA over the Yankees. It also adds to the team’s depth at the catching position, perhaps making Keibert Ruiz a trade chip.
With all of the rumors surrounding Justin Turner this week, we did a deep dive into why we believe he could very well leave Los Angeles. It hurts to say, but JT heading to an American League team might just make too much sense.
Speaking of Justin Turner, the aging third baseman is reportedly already in contact with an AL team. The Toronto Blue Jays have kept tabs on JT and already reached out to discuss adding his talent to their young and competitive roster.
The Dodgers could potentially pull a fast one and add a starting pitcher for the 2021 season. With the recent Cubs news, a Yu Darvish reunion isn’t entirely out of the realm of possibilities.
And finally, one ESPN writer is really making us get our hopes up with the Francisco Lindor to the Dodgers rumors. He argues that LA could flat out give up on Gavin Lux and ship him out, shifting around the entire infield.
All of that news and more! Stay with us all offseason long as we report on the latest and greatest in MLB hot stove rumors and moves, including your Los Angeles Dodgers.
