LA Dodgers Scout Reportedly in Attendance for Tigers, Blue Jays Game

The Dodgers continue to scout pitchers as the deadline approaches.



The Dodgers had a scout in attendance for Friday’s matchup of the Detroit Tigers and the Toronto Blue Jays, according to Jon Paul Morosi of MLB Network.

Between the two teams involved, the Dodgers have had reported interest in multiple players on both sides. Blue Jays RHPs Marcus Stroman and Ken Giles as well as the Tigers LHP Matthew Boyd, RHP Shane Greene, and 3B/OF Nick Castellanos have been linked to the Dodgers.

The game got pretty out of hand as the Tigers fell to the Blue Jays by a score of 12 to 1.

Marcus Stroman tossed a gem, tossing 7 shutout innings while allowing 6 hits and striking out 5. Ken Giles did not pitch.

Matthew Boyd did not start. Shane Greene tossed a perfect ninth inning in which he struck out two batters. It was obvious that he was deployed because of the scouts in attendance, because the Tigers utilized their closer in a blowout loss. Castellanos went 0-for-3 at the plate.

The Dodgers will be making moves soon and they very well could involve these two teams.

    • They got Manny, they got Darvish so that’s just not true.They did it by trading good prospects that they didn’t need, like Calhoun or packaging multiple lower level prospects.
      People forget that Friedman and Kasten want to win every bit as much as we do.

  1. Daniel I agree just think of the pressure from fans on the 30 year WS championship drought. No one wants to win it more than Kasten and Friedman. It’s foolish to think they do not care. It would get the Monkey off their backs for good.
    That said as Friedman stated in the Times today with the earlier trade date and the amount of teams still in the WC hunt its complicated knowing who is available. I believe the Pirates should trade Velasquez but I don’t think they will.
