Dodgers eyeing pitching help ahead of MLB trade deadline

Dodgers, MLB trade deadline, Charlie Morton, Braves, Dodgers,

The Los Angeles Dodgers are fresh off of a World Series victory. However, the Dodgers are currently in some serious trouble as far as their pitching is concerned. Dustin May is out for the year, and Clayton Kershaw was placed on the IL and is expected to be out a bit longer. It is no secret the Dodgers will be active before the MLB trade deadline hits.

In fact, according to Seth Martini of MLB Network Radio, the Dodgers are eyeing some pitching help and targeting Charlie Morton from the Atlanta Braves.

Yes, the Dodgers absolutely need pitching and can’t afford to stand pat at the MLB trade deadline, especially with the state of the National League West.

The NL currently possesses three of the top records in the entire MLB with the San Francisco Giants having the most wins in baseball. The Dodgers are second, but the San Diego Padres are just four games back of the Dodgers, and everybody knows AJ Preller goes wild at the MLB trade deadline.

Morton makes sense, especially with the Braves expected to sell after the devastating season-ending injury to Ronald Acuna Jr. as well as some other notable injuries.

Sure, Morton is a rental, but we have seen the Dodgers roll the dice on rentals in the past, specifically Manny Machado.

The MLB trade deadline is a couple of weeks away and there should be a ton of activity by the end of July.
