Los Angels Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers are not opposed to making a big move. Adding Kris Bryant from the Chicago Cubs would fit their modus operandi.

After all, the Dodgers did that last offseason. Mookie Betts was an impending free agent when they acquired him from the Red Sox last offseason. Not only was Betts a key part of the Dodgers’ winning the World Series, but Los Angeles also locked him into a long term extension, making the trade that much better.

The Dodgers do have an opening at third base. Justin Turner, as loved as he may be by his teammates, is a free agent. If Bryant can return to the form he displayed in his first five years, he would be an immediate upgrade, and yet another star in what promises to be a formidable Dodgers lineup.

Obviously, the Dodgers would hope that Bryant would be more than a rental. They rolled the dice on Betts and were able to get that extension done. With a questionable economic landscape in the coming years, Los Angeles may be able to do that yet again if they were able to land the Chicago Cubs third baseman.

The Dodgers have the prospects and the gumption to make such a deal happen. If Kris Bryant is dealt, it would not be a surprise to see him in Los Angeles.
