Dodgers trade rumours: What to expect from the LA Dodgers this MLB offseason

first_img While the MLB offseason has seen many deals go through, there hasn’t been much for the Los Angeles Dodgers fans to cheer about. While Anthony Rendon passed on the chance to play for the LA Dodgers citing their ‘Hollywood lifestyle’ wasn’t for him, he joined rivals LA Angels, while Madison Bumgarner and Corey Kluber signed up for the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Texas Rangers respectively.  The LA Dodgers recently acquired the services of reliever Blake Treinen, and they would look to make moves in the trade market to strengthen their side ahead of the new MLB season. Dodgers Trade Rumours SUBSCRIBE TO US Written By COMMENT Also Read: Braves Trade Rumours: Top 5 Outfield Targets Left To Consider For Atlanta BravesDodgers trade rumours: LA Dodgers and Cleveland Indians root for a perfect trade?For years, LA Dodgers and the Indians have flirted with the possibility of a trade. The Indians could use an outfielder. The LA Dodgers have an abundance of outfielders. Cleveland would like to add a young catcher to their roster, and the LA Dodgers have two of them. The Dodgers require a starting pitcher or two, while the Indians have a surplus of starting pitching. The LA Dodgers are reportedly looking to add Francisco Lindor to their ranks, and a deal seems possible considering the variety of options the Indians and the LA Dodgers can agree on.Dodgers trade rumours: LA Dodgers and Boston Red Sox to hold talks?LA Dodgers and Boston Red Sox are reportedly looking at a possible trade with Dodgers looking to bring in David Price or Mookie Betts. While it’s a far cry from Dodgers’ initial targets of Anthony Rendon and Madison Bumgarner, it’s probably the most sizeable acquisition the LA franchise can make considering Washington Nationals’ $90million offer for Josh Donaldson. The Red Sox will almost certainly subsidise a considerable chunk of the three years and $96 remaining on Price’s contract. As the Dodgers get shut out of the rest of the starting pitching market, a Friedman reunion becomes more intriguing.Also Read: Washington Nationals Willing To Offer Josh Donaldson Bumper 4-year, $90 Million ContractDodgers trade rumours: LA Dodgers eyeing Mike Clevinger?The LA Dodgers are reportedly interested in acquiring underrated pitcher Mike Clevinger. After failing to sign Gerrit Cole, Anthony Rendon and  Stephen Strasburg and such, buying a top-level starting pitcher is going to have to come via the trade market. Whether Cleveland decides to trade Clevinger remains to be seen, especially after they let go Corey Kluber, but one cannot ignore the possibility of a blockbuster deal involving Gavin Lux and Dustin May.Also Read: Didi Gregorius Blames Gerrit Cole For Losing New York Yankees Spot In Phillies UnveilingDodgers trade rumours: What’s next for Hyun-Jin Ryu?Former Dodgers’ southpaw Hyun-Jin Ryu is garnering keen interest on the free-agent market.  The latest report is that the Toronto Blue Jays, Minnesota Twins, and the Los Angeles Dodgers are interested in Ryu who was a finalist for the National League Cy Young award in 2019 and is garnering attention now that Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg are off the market.

first_imgREAD | Dale Steyn Answers Who Would Win A Sprint Race Between Him And MS Dhoni “In the last three games, including the one at Wankhede and first two ODIs (of this series), we’ve batted well in the first half. Batting second isn’t an issue, we’re one of the top sides, if not the best while chasing. As a captain, nice to see the way we’ve batted first after losing the toss. It shows we’re not reliant on the toss,” Kohli said after the match. First Published: 22nd December, 2019 09:47 IST For a long time now, Indian cricket has seen a steady rise in the hardcore fan following and increasingly over the years, there have been players featuring the likes of MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh who have super fans. Indian skipper Virat Kohli had long joined the long list of Indian players who have an enormous fan following, with many looking up to the skipper as a role model. There have been multiple instances where cricketers have stepped out of their way and have interacted with these super fans.

Virat Kohli hugged the fan and was also seen closely observing the tattoos on the fan’s body.  READ | Dale Steyn Describes His Battle With Sachin Tendulkar In 2010 At Cape Town In One Word’Special moment’ As India head to Cuttack to play the decider against the West Indies, King Kohli’s 31-year-old superfan Pintu Behra is more than just excited to see his superstar in action. The superfan recalled the special moment with Virat Kohli earlier in October and revealed that he was an ardent fan of skipper Kohli largely due to his batting style, as told to ANI. Behra revealed that he had saved up money to make tattoos of Kohli’s records on his body and he did as a mark of respect for the batting maestro. The superfan said that while he attended all the matches played by the Men in Blue at home, he wished to watch India play at overseas and hoped that it would happen someday. READ | Proteas Pacer Dale Steyn Picks The Best Test Bowling Unit In The World Currently’We are one of the top sides’ Written By LIVE TV READ | Dale Steyn Picks The Best Fast-bowler And Batsmen In World; States His Mission For IPL FOLLOW UScenter_img WATCH US LIVE COMMENT Koushik Narayanan Last Updated: 22nd December, 2019 09:47 IST Superfan With Kohli’s Records Tattooed On His Body Recalls ‘special Moment’ With Skipper As India head to Cuttack to play the decider against the West Indies, King Kohli’s 31-year-old superfan Pintu Behra is more than just excited to see Kohli play “It’s always good to get 40-50 extra and we want to bat the opposition out of the game.
