The Los Angeles Dodgers are on the market for a top-notch starting pitcher. LA is rumored to be in on many of the top pitchers available this offseason, and once again, another pitcher has been added to the list.
According to MLB insider Mark Feinsand, it is believed that two executives think the Tampa Bay Rays will move their right-handed ace, Tyler Glasnow.
Amid the news released by Feinsand, MLB insider for Bleacher Report Zachary Rymer listed the 10 best landing spots for the righty pitcher, and your Los Angeles Dodgers came in at No. 1 on this list. Here’s what the potential package looks like.

The price for Glasnow is not as high as some others on the market considering his age (30), injury history and the fact that he’s only under contract for the 2024 season. However, no one is filthier than the righty pitcher when he is on the mound. Although he has not made an All-Star team throughout his eight-year career, Glasnow is as good as any top pitcher in this league.
The Dodgers would be giving up two of their top pitching prospects, but they have an influx of pitching in the minor leagues, and at some point, will need to move them for win-now assets. LA can easily replace those products in a short amount of time, and their need for an ace is vital.
If the Dodgers can somehow trade for Glasnow, it would immediately bolster the rotation. As we all know, that was the death of the Dodgers in 2023, and with Glasnow in there along with Walker Buehler, Bobby Miller, and another top-notch pitcher, the Boys in Blue would be in prime position for title No. 8.
That’s all that matters in 2024, and it will not get done with rejuvenation projects or young guys. Glasnow isn’t the only option; the Dodgers front office has options, and we’ll see who they truly have their eye on in the coming weeks.
