2019 Dodgers Trade Deadline: A Day-of Journal As Moves Happen

Last season I did a Trade Dealine journal but it wasn’t published the next day. This year, it will be published and updated throughout the day. The latest will be on top.


Yes, the summary is at the top since we are going in reverse order. The Dodgers got a left-handed reliever in Adam Kolarek and Jedd Gyorko while giving up Niko Hulsizer, Tony Cingrani and Jeffry Abreu. it is not an overwhelmng day at all for the Dodgers as the Astros, Braves and Nationals got better. However, the Dodgers have Gavin Lux, Tony Gonsolin and Dustin May that could contribute. The Dodgers are a very good team and could still improve with the prospects that could be ready. They are clearly not afraid to put them into action as we see with Will Smith replacing Austin Barnes.

July 31 AM

  • 11:58 Some Dodger Deadline history:

  • 11:50 Jeff Passan is reporting the Phillies acquired Corey Dickerson from the Pirates. Also a prospect trade:

  • 11:36 The Nationals have acquired Hudson, Strickland and Elias for their bullpen. Make your own judgements, I guess.

  • 11:33 Nationals get Hunter Strickland from the Mariners via Mark Feinsand
  • 11:30 Let’s keep some receipts:

  • 11:27 A’ get Tanner Roark from Reds
  • 11:25 Brewers get Drew Pomeranz from Giants for their 3rd best prospect? Pomeranz has been good in the bullpen. Brewers also get Ray Black.
  • 11:11 It looks like the Nationals are also getting left hander Roenis Elias from the Mariners per Ken Rosenthal. Along with Hudson he may have been a Dodger target. Neither really moves the needle though.
  • 11:05 Catching up – Nationals get Daniel Hudson, Rays get Jesus Aguilar and the Astros and Cubs swap Tony Kemp for Martin Maldonado.
  • 10:30 Lineup has Joc Pederson in it for those on #HugWatch

  • 9:01 White Sox trade injured Nate Jones to the Rangers for international money
  • 8:20 Gonsolin could be an excellent bullpen piece with his 96 MPH fastball and 89 MPH splitter

  • 8:00 What if the Dodgers don’t make a big trade?

  • 6:41 Nothing but speculation like “player A could be available but could stay”. Any trade predictions? Please feel free to comment. I think the Dodgers get two good relievers.

July 30 PM

  • 9:00 Right after the Dodgers win there was an update on Russell Martin

Just something to keep an eye on as Austin Barnes was 0-5 in OKC at the same time.

  • 7:15 I was at work when this came across the headlines

Gotta love a blockbuster on the eve of the Trade Deadline.

  • 6:00 The Braves trade for Dodgers trade target Chris Martin. They gave up their #10 prospect, Kolby Allard. The Dodgers’ #10 prospect is Mitchell White for comparison’s sake.

  1. After last night, I think we should have a solid, upper echelon return for Ruiz or Gonsolin. Lux and May out of the question. Gonsolin was lights out in Coors Field! He could be our 7th, 8th inning option. Like you say, Bruce, he COULD be an answer for us.

  2. Jedd Gyorko? We’re gonna win a World Series on the back of (cough) Jedd Gyorko???

    Holy cow.
