Dodgers Acquire Toronto Blue Jays Infielder for Minor Leaguer

Seven weeks remain until the July 30 deadline to make trades across Major League Baseball, but the Dodgers are wasting no time improving their roster depth.

According to multiple reports Wednesday, the Dodgers are acquiring infielder Cavan Biggio, who was designated for assignment by the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday.

Biggio, 29, owns a .200/.323/.291 slash line in 2024 and .227/.343/.382 for his career. He is the son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio.

Minor league pitcher Braydon Fisher is headed to Toronto, according to Passan.

The early-hours trade will force the Dodgers to adjust their 26-man roster once it’s official. Biggio can help all over the field; he’s played everywhere except pitcher and catcher in a major league career that began in 2019.

The Dodgers could use the most help on the infield, where third baseman Max Muncy has been sidelined by a nagging oblique injury and 35-year-old Miguel Rojas has been trying to play through leg soreness.

It’s unclear what the corresponding move will be for Biggio, though the injured list would seem to be an option for Rojas. He hasn’t played on back-to-back days since May 28-29.

Fisher, 23, was the Dodgers’ fourth-round pick out of high school in 2018. He had pitched exclusively in relief this year across 15 appearances with Triple-A Oklahoma City and Double-A Tulsa, combining for a 5.68 ERA.

The Dodgers host the Texas Rangers on Wednesday night.

  1. I like this move. Didnt give up much to see if a change of scenery will help Biggio. Reminds me of the CT3 trade…he was bad in SEA and came to LA and became a different player…But its time to move on from CT3.
