The Dodgers are relatively active at the trade deadline today. But it has yet to be in a way that fans were hoping for. So far, their biggest move was trading for slugger Joey Gallo. They landed him in a deal with the Yankees earlier today.
But they just traded Jake Lamb too. The Dodgers brought him into LA on a minor league contract this year and he cracked the big league squad. Since then, he has posted a very respectable.770 OPS across 25 games.
He is headed to the Seattle Mariners in a deal that clears a roster spot for Gallo. The Dodgers are getting money back in the deal, and that appears to be it.

Tough trade for the Dodgers, but they do need the roster spots opened up. Getting Gallo meant that they had to make a decision on a roster player. With Lamb being a left-handed hitter, it was only natural that it would be him.
