Ten days ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers were reported to be in on Corey Kluber. Now, with the MLB Winter Meetings underway, Jon Morosi is back with a report that talks are intensifying.

Furthermore, something has taken foothold and Morosi has gained word of it. Since he broke the initial storyline, it’s clear that he’s been told the Dodgers are serious about bringing Kluber to Los Angeles. With this most recent tweet – it’s obvious that talks are gaining steam.
Moreover, it’s important to remember the package that would surround a potential deal for Kluber. Joc Pederson, Yasiel Puig, and Alex Verdugo are definitely in play for the former Cy Young Award Winner.
Storylines like this one are always fluid in nature. By the end of the day – this could be a non-story and Kluber could be rumored elsewhere.
Still, as of the time being; it would appear the Dodgers are making headway in bringing in another frontline starter. Kluber enters his age-33 season coming off a 2018 in which he went 20-7 with a 2.89 ERA. This included 222 strikeouts in 215 innings pitched.
Should the Dodgers continue to make a strong push for Kluber? What is a fair package?
