Dodgers Rumors: LA Interested in Both Max Scherzer and Reliever Daniel Hudson



Dodgers fans are patiently waiting for the big move to happen. One way or another, there should be a massive deal coming down the pipeline in the next 24 hours. That brings both wild anticipation and a whole lot of anxiety for fans. 

The Dodgers’ interest in Nationals’ pitcher Max Scherzer is already well documented. Adding in a starting pitcher of that caliber would be wild and instantly make Los Angeles a World Series favorite. But their interest does not stop with Mad Max. 

The latest report from The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal is that another Nationals pitcher has drawn the Dodgers’ attention. Daniel Hudson pitched out of LA’s bullpen back in the 2018 season. But this year, Hudson is having an other-worldly season for the Nats.

Across 31 appearances, Hudson has pitched to a 2.20 ERA and 2.45 FIP. He has struck out 48 batters and walked 7 across 32.2 innings of work. His fastball is sitting at just over 97 mph on average which is bar far a career-high for him. The Dodgers adding him to the back end of the rotation could potentially be huge. 

If the Dodgers really wanted to go big, they could try to land both stars. It would take a wild trade package and probably too much for Andrew Friedman to even consider, but it would be wild to see 2 needs filled with 1 big trade.

  1. Rumor is the key word and it may probably take way more than Freidman wants to part with. RUIZ is what teams are most likely demanding as part of any deal but again, I’m not sure Dodgers would deal him for rental pieces. wss

  2. Off topic but today is typical Dodgers this year. Having a good offensive game last night, followed by an anemic offense the very next day, such as being behind Giants with having only 2 measly singles.

  3. So Roberts puts a guy hitting .160 in the cleanup spot just because he hit a flyball that happened to go out of the park? Priceless

  4. Once again, AF looking in wrong direction. We need bats that can produce runs and today’s game proves that. Trading for Duffy seems like a good move to bolster pitching, but scoring runs is a definite need. Not only that but just what (or who) do Nats want from LA ? All the good young prospects for a 37 year old arm ?
    Make room for some hitters to replace a few under performers presently playing almost every day.
