Dodgers News: LA Adds Ryan Yarbrough from Royals at Trade Deadline

The Dodgers have made the move everyone was hoping for! On Tuesday, after the 3 p.m. deadline, it was announced that the Dodgers added LHP Ryan Yarbrough from the Kansas City Royals,’s Mark Feinsand reports.

Yarbrough was from the splash that everyone was hoping for, however, he’s another pitcher that should add some length as both a starter and reliever.

On the year, Yarbrough has made seven starts and appeared in 14 games, sporting a 4.24 ERA and 1.20 WHIP. While he adds some depth as either a rotational piece or long relief guy, he’s definitely not the splash Dodger fans were hoping for.

Hopefully the Dodgers can turn him into something positive for the stretch run of the year, but he joins a list of now five underwhelming players the Dodgers added as they look to hold onto their first place spot in the National League West.

This seems to be the last major move the Dodgers made, so they’re content with the deadline haul of Kiké Hernández, Amed Rosario, Lance Lynn, Joe Kelly and Ryan Yarbrough.

The Dodgers traded prospects 1B Devin Mann and SS Derlin Figueroa in the deal, per Feinsand.

He's been a Dodger fan since he was a kid, and his all-time favorite Dodgers are Matt Kemp and Russell Martin — but Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman are very quickly making a case to be on that list.


  1. What an embarrassment for Fraudman and Uncle Gomez. How can you put all of your eggs in a basket that vetos the trade! That is bushleague.

  2. The Dodgers traded minor leaguers First Baseman Devin Mann and SS Derlin Figueroa for Yarbrough..

    If you don’t offer anything, you don’t get anything. That has been the MO of the Dodgers this year. I doubt Cease was ever going to be traded. Verlander wanted back in Houston (Good, we didn’t need a Rich Hill 2.0) and the Dodgers didn’t act quick enough for guys like Lucas Giolito or Mike Montgomery. I think Friedman has lost his edge….

  3. The dodgers will not go anywhere in the playoffs as long that they have the “Doc” as manager. He’s a proven loser when it comes to post season.
