Alex Verdugo Says Good Bye, Thanks Dodgers Organization, Teammates & Fans After Trade To Red Sox

Shortly after being drafted in the second round in 2014, Alex Verdugo became one of the highly-touted prospects in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization.

Verdugo made his MLB debut in 2017, but it wasn’t until 2019 that he became a full-time Major League player and won over the L.A. fan base by hitting .294/.342/.475 with 12 home runs and 44 RBI in 106 games before suffering a back injury that wound up ending his season.

While it wasn’t known at the time, the Dodgers’ Aug. 4 game against the San Diego Padres will end up being the last that Verdugo plays in the organization.
