We know what you're thinking. At 45-22, seven games superior to anyone else in the National League, and looking at their current 9.5-game lead on the Colorado Rockies in the NL West, you would assume that the Los Angeles Dodgers are not gonna be big spenders at the trade deadline.
But if there's one weakness in their loaded roster, however, it's the bullpen, which holds a 4.42 ERA. That ranks 18th among all major league 'pens and no current reliever on the club has a sub-3.00 ERA.
Therefore, with the trade deadline quietly approaching on July 31, the Dodgers are reportedly looking to acquire Cleveland Indians star closer Brad Hand, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
