The Dodgers could still pull off a blockbuster deal

While the Dodgers were not able to land their primary target Gerrit Cole, there is still a chance that Andrew Friedman will pull off a blockbuster deal.  The team was once again linked to Indians’ shortstop Francisco Lindor at the Winter Meetings and the team continues to talk about a potential deal.  David Vassegh went on MLB Network yesterday and said he believes Mike Clevinger could be part of a potential deal involving Lindor.

The Indians were reportedly asking for Gavin Lux and Dustin May which would be a serious overpay if Francisco Lindor is the only player coming back to the Dodgers.  If the Indians are willing to include Clevinger who has three seasons of control left, the Dodgers might be willing to include both Lux and May.  If such a deal was completed it would completely change the Dodgers’ outlook for 2020.
