The Dodgers have plenty of trade chips to use this winter. These three players may be their best trade chips to use this winter.
The Dodgers enter the off-season with a myriad of ways they could improve their club for the 2020 season. The bullpen and starting rotation figure to get the most attention but the offense could also use another slugger, especially a right-handed hitter with a lineup full of powerful left-handed hitters. With almost $40 million in space under the luxury tax, the Dodgers could make their biggest free-agent signing in years.
