While the annual GM meetings have been happening in Arizona for several days now, there really haven’t been any significant rumors surrounding the Dodgers until today.
While some fans of the Dodgers believe that a big splash this winter personnel-wise is vital in improving the team, there’s a good probability that Andrew Friedman and his crew will make one or more of their trademark, reclamation-type of acquisitions to fortify the roster.
With the conclusion of the 2019 World Series this week comes the beginning of the winter hot stove season. Before long, free agents and trade rumors will soar to the top of the MLB headlines. And, based on all the chatter so far, the Dodgers will be one of those clubs at the forefront.
In the gloomy winter months not long after the smoke settled on the 2018 World Series, management, players and fans of the Dodgers began to re-focus their collective mental energy on yet another upcoming campaign with hopes of capturing a long-elusive championship.
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.
