We have concerning 6 weeks up until springtime training begins and also simply under 3 months prior to Opening Day, and also the Dodgers still have job to do on their lineup. How much job is rather unidentified, since we do not truly understand just how dedicated L.A. is to the concept of a young people motion.
Luckily, we have previous major-league GM Jim Bowden, that obviously still has resources in all 30 front workplaces (according to him). In Bowden’s most recent column, he composes that he talked to “decision-makers in all 30 front offices” to discover what they’re working with. While no person would certainly review details gamers, naturally, he was able to obtain understandings right into what top priorities each group has heading right into completion of the offseason.
His information on the Dodgers isn’t specifically brand-new details, however it verifies what we have actually listened to in other places.
The Dodgers’ leading concern today is to get an outfielder– preferably a facility fielder, however maybe an edge outfielder rather. They would certainly favor to profession for one and also are among the several groups that have actually been associated with profession talks with the Pirates concerning Bryan Reynolds.
Reynolds, obviously, is the main target since he plays facility area, he’s excellent, and also he desires to be traded. Early reports recommended the Pirates were trying to find a bundle comparable to what the Nationals obtained for Juan Soto, which appears insane however is a reasonable beginning factor for them. If the cost obtains even more sensible, L.A. can deal from their minor-league deepness to generate an authentic celebrity in Reynolds.
If a Reynolds offer can not be exercised, Los Angeles definitely has fallbacks and also C, however we do not always understand what those strategies are. But it promises the lineup will certainly transform in between currently and also Opening Day.
