Ken Gurnick ran through the Dodgers trade deadline options yesterday. Here are some highlights from that article:
- The goal is to find a power-hitting corner infielder, a proven starting pitcher and a left-handed reliever.
- Aramis Ramirez and Ryan Dempster top the Dodgers' wish list. Dempster would allow the Dodgers to move Chad Billingsley into the bullpen.
- Other names the Dodgers are scouting -- Corey Hart, Chase Headley, Bryan LaHair, Michael Cuddyer and Cole Hamels among others.
- The Dodgers seem determined not to include Eovaldi in any trade, but it's hard to find any other untouchable prospects in the farm system - including Zach Lee.
- Players that might be attractive to other clubs: Shawn Tolleson, Chris Reed, Ethan Martin, Allen Webster and Juan Rodriguez, as well as position players Joc Pederson, Alex Castellanos and Blake Smith.
