Welcome to February, Los Angeles Dodgers fans. Baseball returns this month! We think.

The Hot Stove is not hot, but the rumor mill is at least lukewarm, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are, as always, in the middle of it.
The Hot Stove got very hot on Thursday, when a big trade went down between two MLB interleague clubs. Although it did not involve the Los Angeles Dodgers, it could have ramifications for them down the line.

On Thursday, Major League Baseball held its Rule 5 draft, when clubs without a full 40-man roster could select certain non-protected players from other clubs.
Today would have been the day that the Winter Meetings would have started were there no Covid to ruin yet another thing. The Hot Stove might have started heating up, but instead of meeting all in one place, meetings will take place virtually, and the stove will probably stay lukewarm for awhile.
The World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers had many key players show up in big moments during the October playoff run. Seven players of the championship roster are currently free agents. With the off-season hot stove being pretty cold at the moment, there hasn’t been much action.
