Dodgers: Fixing the Bullpen, Trades, Call Ups, Any LA Interest in Shane Greene?

There’s no denying that the World Series favorites have been in a funk for weeks now. The Dodgers have lost 13 of their last 17 games and while the offense continues to struggle, the injury plagued bullpen has also been a big contributing factor to LA’s slide down the standings.

We take a deep dive into the underperforming Dodgers ‘pen and discuss how big of an impact Joe Kelly will have on the relief core and other ways to get the bullpen back on track.

Plus, could the Dodgers have any interest in free agent reliever Shane Greene? We discuss the latest rumors and if he’d be a good fit in LA!


On the Shane Greene front, MLB insider Jon Heyman reported that the former All-Star closer has been in talks with multiple teams. Greene appeared in 28 games for the Braves last season, recording a 2.60 ERA with 21 strikeouts and 9 walks in 27.2 innings.

With as decimated as the LA bullpen is, a move like this makes sense on paper. But it doesn’t really hit on the rumor meter.
