The Los Angeles Dodgers are looking to solidify their bullpen at the trade deadline, and they have been linked to some of the game’s top closers. The latest is Pittsburgh Pirates reliever Felipe Vazquez.
Unlike the Dodgers, who are leading the NL West, the Pirates have just 36 wins and are fading from playoff contention. It would take a big haul to pry Vazquez away from them, but Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports that the LA is one team that could be motivated enough and has the minor league resources to pull off a deal.
The Dodgers want to acquire a top left-handed reliever, and Vazquez certainly fits the bill.
