The 2022 offseason has been different from what fans have pictured. Although we did get some good news that the Dodgers signed slugger J.D. Martinez earlier today, it has been a relatively slow offseason for the Boys in Blue.
A ton of moves can still be made from now until the start of the season, so don’t call this offseason a total failure yet.
MLB FOX sideline reporter Ken Rosenthal announced L.A. is ‘in the mix’ for free agent right-haned pitcher Seth Lugo.
Dodgers one of multiple teams in mix for free-agent right-hander Seth Lugo, sources tell me and @FabianArdaya. LAD most likely would build up Lugo to start, viewing him as added depth for rotation. If their young starters perform, they could always move him back to bullpen.

If the Dodgers were able to acquire the 32-year-old pitcher, Rosenthal reported L.A. would build up the righty to be a starter, or if all goes well with the young guys; he’ll be brought in from the bullpen.
Lugo pitched for the Mets as a reliever for the past two seasons. In 2022, he had a 3-2 record with a 3.60 ERA, struck out 69 batters, and a 1.16 WHIP in 65 innings pitched and 62 games.
Seth has bounced around from the Mets, who drafted him in 2011, to triple-A, double-A, A+, A, A-, and Rk, according to Baseball Reference.
The Dodgers are in desperate need of pitching; you could never go wrong with adding as many arms as you can, and hopefully, Andrew Friedman finds a way to add Lugo.
Then again, the Dodgers have been in on almost every free agent, so this could be a whole lot of nothing. However, you could never sleep on the Dodgers.
Are you guys for or against adding Seth Lugo, Dodger fans?
