Dodgers News: Team Willing To Trade Prospects In Right Deal



[new_royalslider id=”48″]
The Los Angeles Dodgers have seen free agents Russell Martin, Andrew Miller and Jon Lester sign with other teams this winter, although their final interest in the three was never determined.

While the Dodgers have enough money to overpay for top free agents, the new front office has been more cautious in their spending thus far. Another way to acquire top talent is by trade, where the Dodgers have been linked to a few possible deals. In some of those potential trades, the front office would have to possibly let go one or more of the team’s top prospects.

According to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA, Farhan Zaidi has not ruled out trading any of the top prospects in a possible deal:

The Dodgers could be looking to bring in another quality starting pitcher, relief pitching, a shortstop and a catcher. In order to fill a need, the team could decide to part ways with prospects such as Joc Pederson, Corey Seager and Julio Urias. One idea out there has been the Dodgers trading for Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies. At the trade deadline, it was said that the Phillies were looking for at least a couple of the team’s main prospects. While the team would rather keep their young talent, Zaidi and Andrew Friedman are looking at everything to improve this team.

While it would hurt to see players leave the team before seeing what they can do, it would be worth it for the front office if a World Series is won.
