🔥 Game-Changer Alert: The Single Trade and Epic Signing the Dodgers Absolutely Must Pull Off!



Following their National League Division Series sweep by the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Los Angeles Dodgers are entering the offseason with the goal of making a transformative move for the franchise. While the outcome of their pursuit remains uncertain, here are a suggested trade and signing the Dodgers should consider this winter.

Trade: Acquire Rays outfielder Randy Arozarena and RHP Tyler Glasnow

Despite being strong contenders for Shohei Ohtani in free agency, the Dodgers must be ready for alternative scenarios. If Ohtani chooses a different team, the Dodgers, who have significantly cut payroll to accommodate Ohtani, should explore exceptional alternatives. One such alternative is a blockbuster trade, leveraging their prospect capital. With Glasnow expected to be traded in his final season under team control, the Dodgers could pursue this electric pitcher, who, despite some injury concerns, has the potential to become an All-Star.

Arozarena, coming off a stellar 2023 All-Star season with a .254 batting average, 23 home runs, and 83 RBI, would address the Dodgers’ corner outfield needs, identified as a priority. His impressive postseason track record, boasting a .336 batting average, 11 homers, and 17 RBI in 33 career postseason games, makes him a compelling addition, especially after Betts and Freeman struggled in the NLDS.

Signing: Bring back designated hitter J.D. Martinez

The 36-year-old Martinez, who thrived on a one-year, $10 million prove-it deal with the Dodgers last season, emerged as a successful reclamation project. Despite the Dodgers not extending a qualifying offer, re-signing Martinez becomes a sensible move if they miss out on Ohtani. With the Diamondbacks expressing interest in Martinez, acting swiftly is crucial. A projected one-year, $15.5 million contract, based on market value, seems reasonable for a player of Martinez’s caliber, particularly if he maintains his impressive offensive production, making it a fair investment for the Dodgers.
