Just when you think the Dodgers are about to push themselves out of the 2018 playoff picture, they surprise you—like winning two out of three in a volatile setting like Denver. Yet on the other hand, right when you think the Boys in Blue have established momentum and might make a run at another division title, they lose two at home to the lowly Mets, then another two on the road to the cellar-dwelling Reds.
The Dodgers got the ball rolling during early trade season on Wednesday afternoon, acquiring right-handed pitcher Dylan Floro, minor-league right-handed pitcher Zach Neal and international signing bonus pool space from the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for minor league right-handed pitchers James Marinan and Aneurys Zabala.
After what seemed to be a overwhelmingly long road trip that spanned only seven games, the Dodgers will return home on Monday to host the Washington Nationals for three contests on June 5-7, followed by a three-game set against the Cincinnati Reds on June 9-11. Sandwiched in between will be a much needed day off on June 8, the club’s first off-day since May 21.
