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.
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.
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.
As the number of days remaining before the 2019 trade deadline dwindle away, the Dodgers are slowly but surely making a few moves to fill some existing roster holes, mainly due to injury.
While there haven’t been an overwhelming number of rumors linked to the Dodgers in the days leading up to this year’s trade deadline, one surfaced on Monday evening that suggested Andrew Friedman and his troops were talking to the Orioles about reliever Mychal Givens.
Although there are just 11 days remaining until the 2019 trade deadline, there still hasn’t been any significant rumors linked to the Dodgers as far as potential deals go.
As 2019 has seen the abandonment of waiver trades through the end of August, many teams around the MLB will be provided with limited opportunities to deal ahead of the July 31 deadline.
With the 2019 MLB trade deadline just a few, short weeks away, fans of the Dodgers shouldn’t be surprised when one or more of the team’s valued prospects is moved in a deal, most likely to upgrade a bullpen that’s been heavily criticized for most of the season.
Many fans of the Dodgers seemed to have mixed feelings after the 2018 non-waiver deadline passed on Tuesday afternoon. Some folks believed that the offense became a potential juggernaut with the addition of infielder Brian Dozier, while others felt the team missed several beneficial opportunities by passing up numerous relievers which were eventually snatched up by rival clubs. Nevertheless, there’s still about a month remaining when clubs are able to make waiver trades, which gives Los Angeles an ample amount of time to sort out all of its internal resources.
