SAN DIEGO — It was a quiet winter meeting for the Dodgers. But that doesn’t mean the Dodgers will remain silent this winter, as they have in the past.

In 2020, Los Angeles made the biggest splash of the offseason by acquiring Mookie Betts From the Red Sox in February. Two years ago the club signed Trevor Bauer in January. Last season things were different, freddie freeman I became a dodger in March.

Will there be a move of that magnitude for the Dodgers this winter? But there are players who fit this team. Let’s take a look at some targets and where they fit.

On the field, signing Correa makes a lot of sense for the Dodgers. Correa has given the Dodgers some edge and is a postseason performer, making him one of the best shortstops in the majors, a much needed position thereafter. trea turner Left for Philadelphia earlier this week.

In other lives, the Dodgers had met with Correa and his representatives to try and lock their next franchise player into a multi-year contract. It’s a little more complicated.

With Correa’s involvement in the Astros’ cheating scandal, the Dodgers are sensitive to potential negative fan reactions.With only three players left from the 2017 Dodgers, this is still an anomaly. It’s a tough situation, and Correa is unlikely to go to Los Angeles.

Like Correa, Rodon also makes sense for the Dodgers looking to add a front-line type starter to their rotation. But the left-hander prefers to play away from the West Coast and will demand a lucrative multi-year contract. Julio UriasFormer Cy Young Award Winner Blake Snell and two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani He plans to become a free agent next winter.

Among the remaining free agents in the market, Kiermayr is a very meaningful center fielder for the Dodgers. Sources say Keymeyer is recovering from season-ending hip surgery, but is recovering well and will be ready for spring training.

Kiermeier could give to the Dodgers if healthy almost identical production Cody Bellinger Streamed the last 2 seasons. But more importantly, Kiermaier has won his three Gold Glove Awards. This gives teams the level of defense they need to replace in position. There is a mutual interest here.

McCutchen’s fit is intriguing and on both sides: the 36-year-old could give the Dodgers a right-handed bat off the bench. Hanzer Albert Offered last season. McCutchen posted .738 OPS against lefties last season.

Martinez is also a right-handed option, but he needs more playing time than just a bench role. The Dodgers were very interested in Martinez at the trade deadline and have since shown interest again.
