The Hot Stove is in full stride, meaning the Dodgers will be looking to make some moves to improve the team, making us wonder who could be traded and who shouldn’t.
The Dodgers have been linked with both Giancarlo Stanton and Shohei Ohtani. One would require parting with players and the other would not. But beyond them, they may be and should be, looking around the league to see how they can improve themselves.
Los Angeles has quality trade pieces that may look appealing to other teams, and even if they were not, the Dodgers could use some of the current players to make a move or two. But then you have to ask “who should be untouchable and who should not?”
The untouchables are obvious. Clayton Kershaw, Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger, Justin Turner, Kenley Jansen, and maybe Yasiel Puig and Chris Taylor? But after them, everyone else should be up for grabs.
Being expendable in this situation is not just not being needed but whether or not that player has some semblance of value in a trade. Here are the most expendable players the Dodgers have.
