What About Next Year?

I had already started this blog post when Whistling Ranger (welcome to LADT) posted this: “I look for the Dodgers to concentrate on roster management in the offseason. There is extreme competition for the 40-man roster. Look for them to trade older players for younger, promising players that they don’t have to protect. If they don’t, they will lose some through the rule 5 draft or have to DFA them.”

That comment is spot on. In fact, it is a huge understatement! There is likely going to be a huge roster turnover in the offseason as the following prospects must be added to the roster or risked being lost to the Rule 5 Draft: Miguel Vargas has already been added, so he is protected.
