MLB News: Dodgers actively looking for trade at this position and here are four options for reinforcements

The Los Angeles Dodgers are actively looking for a center field upgrade after the tall Cody Bellinger went unbid earlier this winter. Bellinger ended up signing a one-year, $17.5 million deal with the Chicago Cubs.

The Dodgers are apparently trying to reinstate their luxury tax penalties, which increase in severity the more consecutive years a team exceeds the thresholds. They are currently $32 million below the lowest level, but they are not sure if Trevor Bauer’s appeal against his suspension will put them back in jeopardy for some or all of the money remaining on their three-year, $103 million deal. :

Bryan Reynolds of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Alek Thomas of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Dylan Carlson of the St. Louis Cardinals and Jarred Kelenic The Seattle Mariners are among the potential options on the trade market for the Dodgers.

Trayce Thompson is currently projected to be the starting center fielder for the Dodgers, flanked by Mookie Betts on the right and James Outman on the left. The Dodgers recently signed veteran outfielder Jason Heyward, a five-time Gold Glove winner, in a minor league deal.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover big events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), important players’ signatures. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as an amateur. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but baseball is in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS). , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it took almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to radio, providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
