Dodgers Rumors: Wednesday Deal Might Lead to Bigger Trade

One constant goal this offseason has been to either maintain or somehow acquire more flexibility for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

While the biggest name (Todd Frazier) technically wound up in Chicago, the larger thing to keep in mind is what this might mean for the Dodgers moving forward.

Ken Rosenthal echoed the sentiment:

This doesn’t mean a deal is definitely coming. There’s simply no way of knowing that as of right now. Reports did come out during and after the Winter Meetings that the Marlins wanted an astronomical haul for Jose Fernandez, but that the Dodgers weren’t willing to meet those demands — especially regarding Corey Seager.

Now, with pitching prospects like Frankie Montas, Julio Urias and Jose de Leon, the Dodgers can meet bring more to the negotiation table without even mentioning Seager, whom they consider a star in the making.

Again, while the more straightforward way to improve the roster and ease fans’ minds might be through free agency, the more lasting impact tends to involve high-end prospects, something of which the Dodgers continue to stockpile.
