I know there's no way Latos gets to us on waivers but hypothetically, what would it take to acquire him?

So what about John Danks? His contract is big enough that he probably won't get claimed. Is he an actual upgrade for is as a 4/5 starter?

So do we really think we will have Joc in our lineup on Friday night? If so, obviously we will make a trade before then. At least that will make the off day more exciting.

I wouldn't mind it if the Dodgers took a run at Keppinger now that the White Sox have requested release waivers on him. At least for the 2 weeks if Uribe goes on the DL.

10 months, 1 week ago on 2013 Dodgers in Review #19: CF Andre Ethier

Reply

I didn't see this discussed yet, Bowden new today. One deal for every NL team.


Los Angeles Dodgers

The move: Trade outfielder Andre Ethier, Ross Stripling, Matt McGill and cash (approximately $9 million over four years to bring the average annual value of Ethier's contract down to $15M per season) to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for right-handed pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma.

Why: The Mariners are in desperate need of offense, and Ethier, 31, brings a consistent .360 on-base percentage with an average of 20 home runs per season. Stripling should develop into a solid No. 3 starter who should be ready by the All-Star break. In return, the Dodgers would get another top-of-the-rotation starter to go with Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu without having to unload top prospects like Joc Pederson, Zach Lee or Corey Seager.

This deal would leave the Dodgers with an outfield of Yasiel Puig in right, Matt Kemp in center, Carl Crawford in left and top prospect Pederson ready in Triple-A when there is an injury. Iwakuma, 32, is signed for $6.5 million in 2014, with a team option of $7 million in 2015.

Has this already been discussed?

One assistant GM proposes that the Rays could trade David Price to the Dodgers for Corey Seager, Joc Pederson, Julio Urias and Chris Withrow, Peter Gammons writes. That would give the Rays two very good hitting prospects in Seager and Pederson, a very young arm in Urias, and a big-league reliever in Withrow. MLB.com ranks Pederson and Seager the top two prospects in the Dodgers system, with Urias at No. 4.

Dionisio Soldevila of ESPN Deportes agrees, adding that an official signing could come at any minute (also via Twitter).

Sorry if this was talked about last night. Chase Headley was put on waivers yesterday. I know there is slim to no chance that no one else in the National League claims him, but would be pretty awesome if he fell to us and we were able to work out a deal. Uribe has been good so far this year, but adding Chase to the lineup every night would be pretty incredible. He's having a down year, but it could be a huge spark for both him and the Dodgers. I know it's pretty far fetched but exciting to dream about.

@PagansOedipalComplex @Mike Petriello @TaylorAllender Yeah that was my thought as well. Although I didn't realize he had been so terrible. I think we need some power coming off the bench, but we will have that in September with Van Slyke coming back and Ethier coming off the bench when Kemp comes back.

I think it would be smart if we are able to sign Alexander Guerrero to also pick up Ellis's option. We have no idea if Guerrero would be able to step right into the 2nd base job. Would make for could competition, plus a safety net if one or both get injured throughout the season.

Dodgers down to the deadline

As it turns out, the Dodgers went right down to the trading deadline trying to add parts for a world series run. L.A. sources say they were working on deals with the Angels and Royals for Hochevar and Howie Kendrick and were willing to trade pitchers Zach Lee, Reed and Chris Withrow. It unraveled minutes from the deadline.
