Dodgers Rumors: Sergio Romo, Jerry Blevins, Joe Blanton on The Radar

The Dodgers appear to be focused on a trio of relievers, as reported first by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Rosenthal reported yesterday Sergio Romo was deciding between Los Angeles and an unidentified team. He added the Dodgers are looking at a number of relievers, and today he confirmed Jerry Blevins as one.

Blevins is an interesting case. He pitched just five innings in 2015 because of injury, but rebounded well in 2016. He became on the the Mets’ key relievers, serving as a lefty specialist and appearing in 73 games. Blevins fits the mold of the one-year commitment the Dodgers seek, though New York could step up its efforts to retain him.

Romo, who grew up a Dodgers fan and is obviously familiar with the division, reportedly holds the cards. If he’s deciding between L.A. and team B, he’s likely the Dodgers’ top choice. If Romo goes elsewhere, Blevins or a Blanton reunion enter the picture.
