Dustin May, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers

It’s looking like the Los Angeles Dodgers will end up winning their seventh straight NL West title. But after losing the World Series in 2017 and 2018, they’re aware that they have unfinished business in October.nike nfl jersey

Hence president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman’s approach to the trade deadline. According to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register, his goal is to find “impact players.”personalized nfl jerseys cheap

The last time the Dodgers pursued such a player on the trade market, the Miami Marlins were asking for two of catcher Keibert Ruiz, infielder Gavin Lux and righty Dustin May for J.T. Realmuto, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman.5a005ade183bcd47d5c4f1f3a560ca7b_crop_exact

The Dodgers may still hesitate to move any of the three, but it’s a safe guess that May is the most available of them. He doesn’t loom large in the team’s crowd of pitchers, and the disconnect between his great stuff (e.g., his fastball, curveball and cutter) and good-not-great results in the minors allows for some doubt.nike nfl jersey

In short, the 21-year-old may be just the guy to move for a replacement for injured starter Rich Hill, or perhaps for a much-needed late-inning reliever to help out veteran closer Kenley Jansen.

The Minnesota Twins have sat comfortably atop the American League Central all season, but injuries and performance issues have recently been killing their buzz.

Regarding the latter, nfl jerseys china cheap the Twins know that their bullpen needs a major piece. They went hard after Craig Kimbrel before he signed with the Chicago Cubs, according to Dan Hayes of The Athletic. He would have been an ideal upgrade over Blake Harper at closer.

The Twins presumably won’t move shortstop Royce Lewis or outfielder Alex Kirilloff. But whether it’s for a Kimbrel-esque reliever or something else, they may be amenable to trading right-hander Brusdar Graterol.nfl jerseys on sale

The 20-year-old Venezuela native boasts an impressive 2.51 ERA across four minor league seasons, as well as a 1.89 ERA for Double-A Pensacola this season. These numbers have mainly come courtesy of his spectacular fastball/slider combination.

The catch with Graterol is how much trouble he’s had staying healthy. He’s had Tommy John surgery, and he’s currently on the injured list now with a shoulder impingement. Instead of waiting on him, the Twins might dangle him as a high-risk, high-reward trade chip.wholesale nfl jersey

Top MLB Prospects Who Could Be Prizes of 2019 Blockbuster Trades

The 2019 Major League Baseball trade deadline won’t be all about brand-name veterans. Some of the league’s best prospects might also change hands ahead of July 31.buy nfl jerseys

We’ve pointed to eight specific young talents who are worth keeping an eye on as potential trade chips in blockbuster deals. In some cases, this is strictly speculative. Others, however, have already appeared in trade rumors either in the past or more recently.16acb22b07bdbe21c71008a9c44e24aa_crop_exact

Although they’re still neck-and-neck with the Chicago Cubs in the race for first place in the National League Central, the Milwaukee Brewers have gone just 10-10 in June.official nfl jerseys

The Brewers’ slide is happening largely because their insistence on carrying a low-risk starting rotation is finally backfiring. Their starters have an MLB-worst 6.59 ERA for the month.womens nfl jerseys

If the Brewers are going to seek a substantial fix for this problem on the trade market, they might have to ready themselves to part with 19-year-old shortstop Brice Turang.

Milwaukee drafted Turang out of Santiago High School with the No. 21 overall pick just last year. He’s since demonstrated an outstanding hit tool with a .291 average and .395 on-base percentage at the low levels of the minors. He’s also a plus runner with the goods to stick at shortstop.nfl nike jerseys

There are questions about Turang’s power potential, however, and it’ll be several more years before he’s ready for the majors anyway. He’s therefore far more expendable than Milwaukee’s top prospect, 22-year-old infielder Keston Hiura.

Elsewhere in the NL Central, the St. Louis Cardinals’ own much-maligned starting rotation has turned a corner with a 3.42 ERA in June. nfl jerseys for sale

Yet the Cardinals must be careful about concluding that their rotation’s struggles (e.g., with a 4.48 ERA) through the first two months of 2019 are a thing of the past. Their rotation might not necessarily need depth, but Miles Mikolas’ regression does point to a need for a reliable ace.

As long as the NL Central lead remains reasonably in sight, this is where the Cardinals might be comfortable trading Dylan Carlson.

The 20-year-old outfielder isn’t as well regarded as third baseman Nolan Gorman, but his stock is rising by way of an offensive breakout for Double-A Springfield. Through 70 games, he’s slashing .280/.363/.493 with 31 extra-base hits. He also boasts an arm that’s racked up 32 assists in four seasons.authentic nfl jersey

But since Carlson is at best an average runner, he profiles more as a corner outfielder than a center fielder. He’s looking up at a somewhat crowded depth chart at those spots, so the Cardinals may conclude that he works better as a trade chip than as a long-term building block.free nfl jerseys
