Dodgers: Breaking Down the Latest Signings and Transactions
I would not be surprised to see the Dodgers continue to show their faces on the international and minor league fronts in the coming days and through spring training. Over the last few weeks there has been no sign of slowing down and as recently as yesterday I heard the Dodgers are looking at a teenage outfielder from The Dominican Republic and it would be no surprise if he is signed in the near future.

The Dodgers also added Huei-Sheng Lin this offseason, a Taiwanese relief pitcher. The only reason he is not apart of this article in a bigger capacity is that I will be a writing a much more detailed analysis of him in the coming days with some video (GIF) review included.
As for the major league side of things, the Dodgers offseason as far as signings go is more or less over. Unless something unbelievable happens and they ink Manny Machado or Bryce Harper, any more movement before Opening Day would more than likely be by way of trade.
That being said, the Dodgers have been linked heavily at some points to JT Realmuto despite the acquisition of Russell Martin.
Should the Dodgers trade for Realmuto, the prospect landscape in Los Angeles would be altered heavily. That seems to be the holdback in talks.
But, with or without a move, the Dodgers will continue to push on the minor league side, especially in the foreign markets. Look out of the piece of Huei-Sheng Lin as you should be very excited to learn about a pitcher I think can quickly make a difference for the Dodgers.
Any further reports of signings will be detailed in a separate post.
