With this year’s All-Star Game festivities behind us, all eyes will now shift toward the 2021 MLB Trade Deadline. For fans of the Dodgers, any news surrounding the prospective return of starting pitcher Trevor Bauer will surge to the top of the headlines, but in the meantime, all focus will be watching how Los Angeles might improve its player roster.
No doubt, Dodgers fans can be some of the most creative people when it comes to dreaming up hypothetical deals with rival clubs. Even though we’re still more than two weeks away from the deadline, we’ve already been imagining ways on what it would take to bring some top-notch talent to Los Angeles, specifically in the forms of players like Max Scherzer or Richard Rodriguez.
The 2020 trade deadline has come and passed, and the Dodgers did not add any members to their already stacked squad.
Most years, the final 24 hours leading up to the MLB trade deadline would be filled with many fans sitting on the edges of their seats, wondering if their favorite squad would make a move to improve their roster.
And just like that, the regular season is half over.
Of course, in this time of craziness that is only 30 games, but still we find ourselves at the halfway point. The Los Angeles Dodgers just finished a schedule of 17 games in a row with two road trips embedded within. I had worried that this might be a little stumbling block for them, but they finished it with a record of 13-4.
In a normal season, the baseball world is beaming with anticipation and excitement in the final week leading up to the trade deadline. This year, it’s tough to gauge if there will even be any significant activity at all.
This season is the first season where there was only one deadline for trading opportunities, just July 31st with no August waiver deadline.
There are less than 48 hours to the trade deadline, and although the Dodgers have not yet made a big splash you move, there have been a series of little under the radar signings.
As the weeks of summer start to pass by at a quick pace, it means that the 2019 trade deadline is rapidly approaching. Unlike previous years, there will be no period allowed for waiver deals, meaning that there should be a huge amount of bustle among many teams before time runs out on July 31.
