Running through potential Dodgers auditioning in 2019 World Series
Nationals to add this offseason
The Nationals have 16 potential free agents that could hit the market this winter, but only ten of them are unrestricted free agents. For the purposes of this article, the only one of the option-based contracts who could be added by the Dodgers is Strasburg.
Here’s the rest of them.
INF Asdrúbal Cabrera– If he doesn’t retire, he’ll likely land with an American League team in need of a little potential power. He doesn’t fit in LA.
2B Brian Dozier– A former Dodger, Dozier, like Cabrera, would work for an AL team in need of pop off the bench, but the Dodgers obviously do not fit the description.
RHP Jeremy Hellickson– Hellickson won Rookie of the Year back when he was with the Rays. He’s not worth anything now though as far as the Dodgers are concerned.

RHP Greg Holland– He’s won a World Series, so that could be a plus. He also did not play in the majors for the Nationals. Maybe he’s worth a flier…
RHP Daniel Hudson– He helped send the Dodgers home early, plus he’s one of the better relievers, closers or set up men, in the game today. A former-Dodger and Diamondback, hopefully he’d be willing to come back to the NL West.
UTL Howie Kendrick– His grand slam hurt more than any other hit during the NLDS. I don’t want to say much more about the former-Dodger, but hopefully he signs outside of the NL so that we don’t have to face him much.
3B Anthony Rendon– If we can sign him, we should. Plain and simple.
OF Gerardo Parra– “Baby Shark” is cool and all, but we don’t need a pinch hitter.
LHP Jonny Venters– He’s not a viable option for the 2020 Dodgers.
RHP Fernando Rodney– He might retire since he’s been on MLB mounds since the early 2000s, but if he doesn’t he’ll probably be in the American League pitching in relief for a playoff hopeful like the Rangers.
