We dive into the latest trade rumors involving LA’s pursuit of Mad Max and what it would take for the Dodgers to acquire the 3-time Cy Young Award winner.
Next, AM 570’s Dodgers insider, David Vassegh said on his show that a deal for Max Scherzer starts and ends with Keibert Ruiz. We discuss if the Dodgers should include Ruiz in a deal for Scherzer and if LA would be willing to offer the 8-time All-Star a contract extension. Plus, should the Dodgers consider trading for Minnesota Twins right-hander, Jose Berrios if they strike out on Scherzer?
Right-handed pitching prospect Ryan Pepiot has also now been linked to Minnesota in a potential Berrios trade.
#Dodgers RHP prospect Ryan Pepiot has drawn interest from #Nats and #Twins as a candidate to be included in the Scherzer or Berríos deals, respectively, as I mentioned earlier today on @MLBNetwork. @MLB @MLBPipeline
