Dodgers Notes: First Trade of July, Significant Roster Moves, and Player Setbacks

The Dodgers lost their series finale against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, 9-2, dropping their record to 3-3 on their just-completed six-game homestand. Monday is an off-day before the team heads to Philadelphia and Detroit for six more on the road. Here’s all the headlines you might have missed:

What Positions Will the Dodgers Upgrade at the Trade Deadline?

As the trade deadline approaches, the Dodgers’ strategy focuses on bolstering the outfield and pitching staff. Insiders suggest potential acquisitions to support Tyler Glasnow and the struggling Walker Buehler, with names like Zach Eflin being floated around. The outfield remains a sore spot, exacerbated by Mookie Betts’ injury, pushing the team to consider options like Randy Arozarena.



Dodgers’ Rumored Trade Target May Not Be Available After All

The Dodgers’ interest in White Sox outfielder Luis Robert Jr. might hit a snag as the White Sox consider retaining him due to his control through 2027 and his recent underperformance. This development could reshape the Dodgers’ trade deadline strategy.

Dodgers Rumors: Will Bo Bichette Be Traded at the Deadline?

Speculation surrounds Toronto’s Bo Bichette, with doubts about his potential move to the Dodgers. Defensive concerns and the high cost in prospects make this trade increasingly unlikely, leaving the Dodgers to rely on their current lineup, especially with Miguel Rojas stepping up.

Dodgers Officially Call Up Top Pitching Prospect

Needing a spot start Sunday, the Dodgers called up Justin Wrobleski. The left-hander faced the Brewers in his MLB debut — a high-stakes game — reflecting the team’s faith in a young pitcher and the reality of a short-staffed rotation.

Dodgers Make Trade, Send Reliever to New York

In a minor roster adjustment, the Dodgers have traded left-hander Matt Gage to the Mets for cash considerations. This move opened a spot on the 40-man roster for Wrobleski, and quietly ended the Dodgers tenure of a relief pitcher who never appeared in a major league game in 2024.

Dodgers’ Max Muncy Suffers Setback, No Longer Swinging Bat

Max Muncy faces another hurdle in his recovery from an oblique injury: he’s stopped swinging a bat, further delaying his much-anticipated return to the Dodgers’ lineup. With the All-Star break looming, the timing complicates the Dodgers’ outlook, as Muncy’s bat remains a significant absence.
