Major League Baseballs Non Waiver Trade Deadline Ends At 4PM ET
Will Darvish, Verlander or Gray, fly to Atlanta to join the Dodgers in the coming hours?
Could a reliever weigh heavily on the minds of the front-office?
If so…what type of prospects and or other pieces will be exchanged?
Will they fore-go a bullpen arm and call up Walker Buehler to assist the club?
Will they add another bat to the mix?
Do they even need to do something big that requires top prospects?
I’ve read that…
Darvish may require top prospects
Verlander will cost money/prospects
Gray will require a battle with the Yankees
Hang on to your caps today folks…A storm may be brewing!!
This afternoon at 5:40pm PDT/6:40pm MDT/8:40 EDT, the Dodgers take on the Colorado Rockies in Denver. If the Dodgers can take three of four games or better, the Dodgers will be in first place at the end of the weekend.
Last night, Nomar Garciaparra discussed Cody Bellinger’s ability to hit an opposite field home run, flat-footed, and with the marine layer working against him in Chavez Ravine. That just shows how strong he is. Imagine the damage he can do at Coors Field. Bombs Away!
Question of the day: If Andrew Toles needs to go onto the disabled list, with whom should the Dodgers replace him?
My vote is for Alex Verdugo. He’s a left-handed hitting athletic outfielder who is hitting well in AAA Oklahoma City. His hitting statistics this year currently sit at .320/.402/.402/.804. He’s got good speed.
Who would you bring up?
Is Adrian Gonzalez going to the disabled list for the first time in his career? That’s my prediction, and it should happen on Friday, May 5, 2017. Gonzalez admitted to the LA Times that he should have started the season on the disabled list. Now with the able-bodied Cody Bombay Bellinger ready to man the defense at first base and more than ready to hit in the heart of the order, give Adrian some rest and recovery time on the disabled list, so he can get his “broken parts” back in order.
Joc Pederson will be coming off the DL on Friday. To make room for Joc, put Gonzalez on the DL rather than optioning Bombay back to AAA Oklahoma City.
