The trade deadline for MLB came and went within the past week, with nothing really major going on with the Dodgers. Their biggest move was shipping Ross Stripling off to Toronto in exchange for some prospects. Let’s jump into some of the news this week from your favorite Los Angeles baseball team!
With the trade deadline this week, the Dodgers were involved in plenty of rumors for big names. They were also rumored to have been considering moving MLB talent in exchange for prospects. Ultimately, they did end up doing that.
The Dodgers also made an effort to move some of their extra relief help at the deadline. While no move happened, there were several names floated around that could have potentially been shipped out for prospects.
In other news, Clayton Kershaw became the winningest left-handed pitcher in MLB history this past month. Kershaw now has a .699 win percentage over the course of his illustrious career.
Los Angeles also cut loose a former All-Star late last month in AJ Ramos. While no explanation was really offered, it sounds like Ramos was not as ready as the team would have liked. Ramos was picked up by the Cubs later, but also cut by them.
Mookie Betts made Dodgers’ history in just his 28th game this year when he stole two bases and hit two homeruns in one game. I guess that’s why he got a 12-year extension before ever playing a meaningful game for Los Angeles.
