While the Los Angeles Dodgers have already added to their roster before July 30 MLB trade deadline by acquiring Billy McKinney from the New York Mets, they are expected to continue exploring options on the pitching front.
Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman recently acknowledged that trading for pitching — either in the form of a starter or bullpen help — is a focus for the team at this season’s deadline.
L.A. since has been reported as aggressively canvasing the market for a starter. Though, one candidate they reportedly are no longer considering is the Kansas City Royals’ Danny Duffy because he has suffered a left flexor strain for a second time this season.
As for the bullpen, the Dodgers, reportedly are open to a potential trade with the Texas Rangers for Ian Kennedy, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.
