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, MLB.com’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.
