MLB rumors: Los Angeles Dodgers eyeing St. Louis Cardinals superstar in trade?
Could the Los Angeles Dodgers be looking to upgrade at third base with a generational talent? Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com recently wrote that the Dodgers could be looking at Nolan Arenado, currently with the St. Louis Cardinals, as a potential trade talent to man the hot corner for years to come.
“The Dodgers have long been enamored of Arenado, 32, and they see third base as a need they’ll have to address in the offseason given their present construction,” Gonzalez said.
Arenado is very familiar with the Dodgers, both through his eight seasons with the Colorado Rockies as well as being a native of Southern California (born in Newport Beach and attending high school in Lake Forest). However, it has been said that the Cardinals will not be trading Paul Goldschmidt or Arenado at the trade deadline, despite the Cardinals entering the end of the month as sellers.
Could the Dodgers put together a package of pitching prospects that would be enough to entice the Cardinals into making a trade. On the surface, it seems unlikely, but it is something to keep an eye on.
