The Dodgers are involved in trade talks on players which other teams can market in the top tier levels of who is available this deadline and who is not. Marcus Stroman, Felipe Vazquez, Edwin Diaz and Noah Syndergaard all rank as high-end talent with any team and for their services the Dodgers will have to pay a lofty price.
Like a buying team wants major league talent to bolster the end of the season and playoff rosters, selling teams want prospect returns to build a consistent, well rounded, core for their futures which they hope are brighter than whatever went into the decision to blow things up.
The Dodgers have one of the best systems in baseball and, be it a blessing or a curse, it will force them to trade players they like and have groomed to work for Los Angeles. They will undoubtedly have to deal top minor league talent and the question becomes who should be available or not.
This will examine each of the Dodgers top prospects and who determine who should be available versus who should not be.
