According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Los Angeles Dodgers are going to start listening to offers for star outfielders Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp and Carl Crawford.
It’s a bit surprising considering both Ethier and Kemp were in my opinion, the corner stones of this outfield. This team had some success last season but failed to get by the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series. The package they could get back for either one would be pretty fair.
I’m not sure if they would get much for Crawford who is going to be entering his 12th season and will turn 33 years old on August 5th, as he’s getting up there in age. Crawford’s numbers has been dipping within the last couple of seasons, but he’s still had some clutch moments for the Dodgers this past season.
This team has made some surprise trades, but I don’t really expect Matt Kemp to be moved as he’s a former MVP runner up behind Ryan Braun a couple seasons ago.
So it’ll come down between Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier this Winter as one of the two will more than likely be traded. Yasiel Puig will most likely get every start next season at right field and their top prospect Joc Pederson is close to being Major League ready.
Time to see what these two guys are worth.
