The MLB trade deadline of August 1st is rapidly approaching, and the Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors are starting to heat up. The Dodgers are 54-44, good for the top wild card spot in the NL. But the Dodgers are likely to try to find an upgrade or two before the deadline, especially on the rotation. With that in mind, here all the latest Dodgers trade rumors.
Dodgers targeting Chris Sale?
Los Angeles is trying to find a top-end starter to add to their rotation, and they've been heavily linked to Tampa Bay's Chris Archer. However, they could also be pursuing Chris Sale of the White Sox, reports Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports:
#SFGiants also checked in on cashner but their need is more bullpen. Dodgers seem to be aiming even higher. TB guys? Sale?— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) July 23, 2016
Chicago has been rumored to be shopping Sale, and the Dodgers would love the opportunity to snatch him up and pair him with Clayton Kershaw. Sale is 14-3 with a 3.18 ERA in 19 starts this season.
Los Angeles interested in Reddick, Bruce
The Dodgers are also interested in adding another outfield bat, and that has led them to have interest in Josh Reddick and Jay Bruce, according to MLB.com's Jon Morosi:
Reddick is batting .295 with six homers and 23 RBIs in 61 games this season, while Bruce is batting .264 with 19 homers and 66 RBIsBack to the Los Angeles Dodgers Newsfeed
