The Dodgers remain ‘quite interested’ in multiple Giants relievers, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle.
MLB Trade Rumors touches on the Dodgers’ reported interest in those relievers.

Schulman’s report comes on the heels of an earlier report from Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports, stating that the Dodgers had been linked to Will Smith, Sam Dyson, Tony Watson, and Reyes Moronta.
Smith, a free agent at the end of the season, is one of the main prizes of the deadline with his 2.44 ERA and 38.9 K% from the left side.
Dyson, former closer for the Texas Rangers, has regained some of the ability he showed early on in his career, posting a 2.57 ERA and 24.9 K%.
Watson, a former Dodger deadline acquisition, has not enjoyed much success this year and is actually getting crushed by lefties this year, surrendering an .840 OPS across 10 innings against left-handed hitters. The Dodgers would be smart to avoid him unless he is basically free on the market.
Moronta, arguably one of the best up-and-coming young arms in the game, will most likely not get moved (especially to the Dodgers) because of his controllability. Moronta has a 2.47 ERA and a 31.5 K%.
