A lot has been written about the lack of moves the Dodgers’ front office has made so far this offseason. In a recent article in the LA Times, part-owner and team president Stan Kasten took on the accusation that the team, up until now, has been “cheap.”
As he continues his dominance in the 2019 postseason, Geritt Cole has fans everywhere wondering if the Dodgers front office might consider going against their set-imposed rule of not giving out a long term, high-priced salary.
With less than 24 hours remaining before the 2019 trade deadline, it’s hard to gauge whether the Dodgers will ultimately stand pat with their current roster or make a splash with some sort of high-impact type of deal.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are not only blessed with supreme talent on the field, they are also have supreme talent in their social media department. To many fans who follow the Dodgers across their various social media platforms, Sue Jo has become just as famous as the players she promotes. Many people look for her in her office at the stadium, get their picture taken with her, and point her out on the field while she’s documenting the Boys in Blue. Now in her fourth year with the team, she excels at documenting the team both in game and before, and out and about in the community.
As the Dodgers have invited 21 non-roster players to the big league side of spring camp this year, most of them are prospects who have plenty of years ahead of them in terms of maturing and development.
Although it still hasn’t officially been reported by the team, several stories broke at the beginning of the week stating that the Dodgers have signed righty pitcher Lin Huei-Sheng. Apparently, the contract involves a signing bonus in the vicinity of $300K. It has also been stated that the deal is pending a physical, which may be the reason for the holdup in the club making an official announcement.
As we’ve mentioned in previous articles, this winter could be a time of great flux for the Dodgers roster. Today, let’s look at five players who most definitely won’t and four players who could be traded before the start of the 2019 season.
