Dodgers: Second Base Upgrades the Dodgers Should Target
3 of 4
Scooter Gennett – Cincinnati Reds
If the Dodgers are looking to acquire a second baseman who slugs, they can try to pick off one of Turner Ward’s new toys. The Reds are in rebuild mode and would love to acquire a few of the Dodgers prospects in return for Scooter Gennett. While Gennett is known for his bat, he still ranked better defensively than CT3 and Kiké in 2018.
Gennett is a career .289 hitter who slugged 23 home runs after slugging 27 home runs a season ago. While Scooter may play in a hitter-friendly ballpark, he hit 13 home runs on the road this season compared to 10 at the Great American Ballpark. Scooter Gennett will be a free agent after the 2019 season, so his cost will not be enormous since the Dodgers would only be guaranteed one year of control.
