MLB Offseason Round-Up: Dodgers, Rays Talking Big Trade

Tyler Glasnow, MLB Offseason

This is one in a series of daily articles highlighting the latest news and notes from the MLB offseason. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers already struck with the biggest splash of the MLB offseason in bringing Shohei Ohtani aboard, but they aren’t done yet.

As Jack Azoulay-Haron of MLB Nerds and Bruce Kuntz of Dodgers Digest first reported, the Dodgers are discussing a trade to acquire starting pitcher Tyler Glasnow and outfielder Manuel Margot from the Tampa Bay Rays.

Though no deal appears imminent at this time, both sides have discussed possible names heading back to Tampa. Those players include young starter Ryan Pepiot and outfielder Jonny Deluca.

It seems inevitable the Rays will trade Glasnow, who is due $25 million for the 2024 season, at some point this winter. The 30-year-old has battled injuries, but when he’s healthy, he’s been a frontline starter. This past season in Tampa Bay, Glasnow went 10-7 with a 3.53 ERA in 21 starts. In 120 innings, the big right-hander struck out 162 batters.

Glasnow, along with Margot, would help fill some holes on an already-loaded Dodgers’ roster. In return, Tampa would receive two promising youngsters if the discussed deal crossed the finish line.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE

Glasnow isn’t the only high-profile pitcher on the Dodgers’ radar. Los Angeles met with right-handed pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamto on Tuesday, according to Russell Dorsey of Bally Sports.

Yamamoto is one of the highest-profile players to ever come from Japan. The 25-year-old very well might be the top remaining free agent with Ohtani off the board.

The Dodgers certainly brought in the big guns at said meeting. According to reports, Ohtani, Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman and Will Smith were amongst those in attendance.
