Dodgers shortstop Trea Turner hit free agency last month, one of four premier shortstops on the market this offseason. For a variety of reasons, the Phillies have always made a lot of sense as a potential landing spot for Turner, and rumors of a union appear to be intensifying. According...
As the Dodgers give Cody Bellinger the non-tender, all signs point towards Bellinger finding a new home as the team looks for a new face in centerfield. While the door isn’t completely shut on a Bellinger return, there’s been speculation the Dodgers will be seeing Bellinger much more than they might’ve hoped.
One of the main objectives of this offseason for the Dodgers is to figure out who will play shortstop for them in 2023. They could stay internal with Gavin Lux, Chris Taylor, or even Jacob Amaya. They could trade for someone like Willy Adames. Or they could go after one of the big four free agents: Trea Turner, Xander Bogaerts, Dansby Swanson, and Carlos Correa.
Manny Mota, who has been associated with the Dodgers as a player, coach, and ambassador for 53 of his 84 years, will probably never be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. But he is a Hall of Famer. From Cary Osborne’s report on Dodger Insider:. Dodger great...
When the Dodgers (and every other team) hit last week’s deadline to put Rule 5 draft-eligible players on the 40-man roster to protect them, there was talk that L.A. might protect young pitcher Carlos Duran. They ultimately didn’t, and we might have an idea why now, as Baseball America’s Kyle Glaser reports.
The talk recently has been that the four teams most deeply involved in the Justin Verlander pursuit are the Dodgers, Astros, Yankees, and Mets. To hear MLB insider Jon Morosi talk, though, it sounds like Houston might be pulling out of that race. That’s the Astros’ owner giving a nonchalant...
The Dodgers don’t have a ton of holes to fill this offseason. They definitely need to shore up the starting rotation, and the potential loss of Trea Turner leaves a huge hole at the shortstop position. However, many people around the Dodgers think the team could fill that hole internally, as opposed to externally via free agency or a trade.
The Dodgers have officially made their Tyler Anderson, Andrew Heaney-esque signing of the offseason. They are reportedly in agreement on a one-year deal with free agent RHP Shelby Miller. For those wondering, yes, it’s the same Shelby Miller. The one who was an All-Star in Atlanta in 2015. The one...
Trea Turner is looking more like a former Dodgers shortstop as each day passes by. After a career year for the All-Star, Turner now explores the open market and expects to make top dollar this off-season, and rightfully so. Turner is coming off his first Silver Slugger award of his...
Column: After 34 years of scores, stadiums and stars, it's time for this sports editor to say goodbye
After more than three decades as a reporter, copy editor, and finally sports editor at the San Diego Union-Tribune, Jay Posner has decided to retire
Two weeks ago, the Dodgers did what would have seemed unthinkable just a couple years ago, non-tendering former MVP Cody Bellinger and making him a free agent at age 27. While L.A. isn’t out of the running to re-sign Belli at a lower dollar amount than what they would have paid him in arbitration, there’s a lot of demand for the supremely talented outfielder who is looking for a one-year deal to re-establish his value.
It’s time for another pro/con list about the Dodgers offseason. This time, we’re going to dig into Justin Turner. Should Los Angeles bring him back for a 10th season in blue, or should they let him go? Let’s look at the pros and cons for bringing JT back.
Doug is out sick this week but the hot stove is ready to rumble. The baseball winter meetings are finally returning so Clint and Noah are getting primed for all the free agency movement and rumors that are beginning to heat up! We discuss the possibility of AL Cy Young award winner Justin Verlander landing in LA as he was reported to be meeting with the Dodgers this week.
After six years of mediocrity, left-handed pitcher Carlos Rodon finally put it all together in 2021 for the White Sox, going 13-5 with a 2.37 ERA and finishing fifth in the AL Cy Young race. He signed with the Giants for 2022 and had another great year, going 14-8 with a 2.88 ERA and finishing sixth in the Cy Young voting.
Almost a month into free agency, and no top-tier free agents have inked themselves into a new contract. Some record-breaking deals could be signed this winter, and the Dodgers are in on almost every free agent, from names like Trea Turner, Jacob deGrom, Carlos Correra, and Aaron Judge. Judge is...
Ben Verlander is in a tough position. He’s the less-talented, more-handsome little brother of a future Hall of Fame pitcher, and he’s trying to make his way as a baseball analyst. With a last name no one has ever heard except on him and his brother, it’s impossible for anyone to ever think of him as “Justin Verlander’s brother Ben.”
The Dodgers currently have holes at shortstop, center field, and starting pitching, at least, and with the Winter Meetings coming up, they’re likely to start plugging some of those holes soon. The question is, will they fill them through trades, free agency, or internal options?. Los Angeles beat writer...
Earlier this month, it was reported that former Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig had reached an agreement to plead guilty to lying to federal investigators in a case involving an illegal sports gambling operation. Last week, word came down that Puig and his team were reconsidering the guilty plea in light of new evidence, and that became official on Wednesday when Puig’s team announced he was pleading not guilty.
As the Dodgers ended their season struggling to get a proper pitching rotation in the postseason, the Astros ended with a World Series victory and gave Justin Verlander his third Cy Young award of his career. The Dodgers have a glaring need, especially with the loss of Tyler Anderson and Verlander may be exactly what the team needs.
Hearing the word Astros will put a damper on a Dodgers fans mood while bringing in top talent to win ball games takes precedent over any lasting judgement. Among the names the Dodgers may consider adding to their roster is Justin Verlander. Carlos Correa has also been linked to the...
