Whether you’re disappointed or satisfied, the Dodgers offseason work has been confusing. First, the signed the pitcher that beat them in Joe Kelly and followed it with a salary dump trade that saw Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, Alex Wood and Kyle Farmer to Cincinnati for two prospects and some cap space.
Many people anticipated that the trade was a sign for something to come: a Corey Kluber trade, a Bryce Harper signing or a long-discussed transaction that would send JT Realmuto to Los Angeles. But, what accompanied the trade that sent a Los Angeles favorite to a new city was an onslaught of minor league signings and a trade that brought Russell Martin back to Los Angeles.
Since the Martin trade, all has remained quiet for the Dodger. But, players they have been involved with have stayed hot on the stove.
