Well, they’re clearing out some salary, a couple of outfield roster spots, and we assume just paying Homer Bailey to go away.
That opens up a lot of other possibilities for the Dodgers. Could it be trying to sign Bryce Harper? Swinging a deal for Corey Kluber, or just saving some money and opening a starting spot for Alex Verdugo?
Or some combination of any of the above, or something that hasn’t been rumored yet.
The stove is officially hot in Los Angeles now. Let the rumor frenzy begin.

On a personal level, as much as I will miss Puig and how he makes the stodgy old-fashioned baseball people crazy, I’m fascinated by how he’s going to play in Cincinnati. I lived in Ohio for a long time, Cincy isn’t exactly known for it’s fun, progressive attitudes. Should be interesting to see how the city, and the team, embraces Puig.
