  • Dodgers Sign Wander Suero To Minor-League Deal

    The Los Angeles Dodgers signed free-agent right-hander Wander Suero to a minor-league deal on Tuesday. Suero didn't pitch at all in the majors in 2022 and spent the entire year pitching for Triple-A Salt Lake in the Los Angeles Angels organization, where he posted a 6.08 ERA, 1.86 WHIP, two saves, nine walks and 15 strikeouts in only 23 2/3 relief innings. The 31-year-old reliever debuted in the big leagues in 2018 and has spent all four of his seasons in the majors with the Washington Nationals, going 14-13 with a 4.61 ERA (3.80 FIP), 1.28 WHIP, one save and 25.4 percent strikeout rate in 185 relief appearances covering 185 1/3 innings. Suero will simply serve as bullpen depth for the Dodgers in 2023, and there's a good chance he'll start in the minor leagues.

  • Dodgers, Tyler Cyr In Agreement On Minor-League Deal

    Pitcher Tyler Cyr and the Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly in agreement on a minor-league deal, per a tweet from The Athletic's Fabian Ardaya on Saturday. The deal includes an invite to major-league spring training. Cyr made 12 appearances in the majors last season, splitting time with the Oakland Athletics and Philadelphia Phillies. He logged a 2.70 ERA and a 4.01 FIP in 13 1/3 innings to go along with 16 strikeouts and five walks allowed. The reliever also logged a hold and a win. Heading into the 2023 season, the right-hander will give the Dodgers some additional bullpen depth.

  • Dodgers To Sign Tyler Cyr To Minor League Deal

    The Dodgers have agreed to a deal to sign right hander Tyler Cyr, according to Robert Murray of Fansided.

  • Dodgers Agree With Joendry Vargas, Arnaldo Lantigua

    The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed with shortstop Joendry Vargas and outfielder Arnaldo Lantigua on Sunday. Vargas, the No. 3 player on MLB.com's top-50 international prospect list, signed for $2.077 million. Lantigua was ranked No. 23 and signed for $697,500. Vargas, who stands at 6-foot-3, is quick with good hands and instincts at the position, and he'll stay as a middle infielder for as long as he can. But his plus arm will make a transition to third base possible. Vargas is also one of the top hitters in this international class. He sprays line drives to all fields and can hit for average, with the hope that his power eventually develops. Lantigua is a power-hitting Dominican that can also make consistent contact.

  • Yency Almonte Avoids Arbitration

    The Los Angeles Dodgers and right-handed relieverYency Almonte avoided arbitration after agreeing to a one-year, $1.5 million contract. The 28-year-old signed with the Dodgers on a minor-league deal before 2022 but missed roughly two months due to elbow inflammation. Although, his 2022 campaign may have been his best performance yet. He spent four seasons with the Rockies and compiled a 5.30 ERA through four seasons. It appears that a change of scenery has flipped the script. Almonte posted a 1.02 ERA with a 3.17 FIP across 33 appearances. If Almonte can mirror his 2022 campaign and stay healthy, he should undoubtedly be considered for deep-league formats.

  • Dustin May Gets $1.675 Million To Avoid Arbitration

    The Los Angeles Dodgers and pitcherDustin Mayagreed to a one-year, $1.675 million contract to avoid salary arbitration. His career has been plagued with injuries, but a healthy Dustin May is not a pitcher you want to face in the batter's box. He has made just 11 starts over the past two seasons, but the Dodgers hope to get him healthy for 2023. May made his season debut in August after recovering from Tommy John surgery. In his six starts in 2022, the 25-year-old displayed a 4.50 ERA along with 29 strikeouts and a 4.38 FIP. If May can stay healthy for the bulk of 2023, he will be included in the Dodgers' five-man rotation consisting ofClayton Kershaw,Julio Urias,Tony Gonsolin, andNoah Syndergaard. If everything goes right for the right-hander, he should be a reliable contributor in the fantasy world.

  • Julio Urias Gets $14.25 Million To Avoid Arbitration

    The Los Angeles Dodgers and left-handed starting pitcher Julio Urias agreed to a one-year, $14.25 million deal to avoid salary arbitration on Friday. The 26-year-old southpaw deserves the big raise after another excellent season for the Dodgers in 2022. Urias went 17-7 with a league-best 2.16 ERA (3.71 FIP), 0.96 WHIP and 24.1 percent strikeout rate in 175 innings over 31 starts. He also led the league with a 194 ERA+ and finished third in the National League Cy Young voting. After two straight strong seasons for the Blue, Urias is locked in as a low-end fantasy ace/high-end No. 2 for the 2023 season.

  • Will Smith Avoids Salary Arbitration

    The Los Angeles Dodgers and catcher Will Smith avoided salary arbitration on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $5.25 million deal, according to sources. Smith had another very strong year as the Dodgers' primary catcher in 2022, slashing .260/.343/.465 with an .807 OPS, 24 home runs, a career-high 87 RBI, 68 runs scored and a stolen base in 578 plate appearances over a career-high 137 games. He now has 49 home runs in the last two years and has become one of the most attractive fantasy backstops in the game in one of the best lineups in baseball.

  • Dodgers Officially Release Trevor Bauer

    The Los Angeles Dodgers gave starting pitcher Trevor Bauer his unconditional release on Thursday. The Dodgers designated Bauer for assignment last Friday and could not find a trade partner by the deadline this Friday, so the 31-year-old right-hander will become a free agent. Bauer has been reinstated by the league following his lengthy suspension for domestic violence, but it remains to be seen if any other MLB teams will take a chance on the former National League Cy Young winner. The Dodgers are on the hook for $22.5 million. He missed all of last season, so even if a team takes a chance on Bauer for 2023, it will be tough to predict how he'll perform after previously being one of the better pitchers in the game.

  • Miguel Rojas Expected To Undergo Additional Wrist Procedure

    After eight seasons with the Marlins, Miguel Rojas changed organizations this evening. Miami traded the infielder to the Dodgers in a one-for-one deal that sent infield prospect Jacob Amaya to South Florida. Rojas is coming off a tough season in which he hit .237/.282/.324 through 504 trips to the plate. A right wrist issue seemed to play…

  • Marlins Land Shortstop Prospect Jacob Amaya

    The Miami Marlins acquired shortstop prospect Jacob Amaya from the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday in exchange for shortstop Miguel Rojas. The glove-first Rojas became expendable when the Fish signed veteran infielder Jean Segura in free agency this offseason. With Rojas now in LA, Segura is likely to begin the 2023 campaign as Miami's everyday shortstop. Amaya, who was ranked as the Dodgers' No. 15 prospect by MLB Pipeline, hit a combined .261/.369/.427 with a career-high 17 home runs, 71 RBI, 85 runs scored and six stolen bases in 133 games for Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City in 2022. Like Rojas, Amaya is excellent defensively and has a strong approach at the plate, albeit without a ton of pop.

  • Dodgers Acquire Miguel Rojas From Marlins

    The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired shortstop Miguel Rojas from the Miami Marlins on Wednesday in exchange for shortstop prospect Jacob Amaya. Rojas had an underwhelming year at the plate for the Fish in 2022 while dealing with a wrist injury that eventually required surgery, but he's always been more of a glove-first player to begin with. The 33-year-old veteran moves to a much better lineup in LA, which will make him slightly more attractive as a fantasy middle infielder in deeper leagues if he's playing every day. The Dodgers lost star shortstop Trea Turner in free agency and are expected to give Gavin Lux a shot at the 6, so it's possible that Rojas ends up playing more regularly at the keystone for the Blue.

  • Dodgers Looking To Acquire Miguel Rojas

    The Los Angeles Dodgers are deep in trade talks for Miami Marlins shortstop Miguel Rojas, according to sources. No deal is done yet, but it could be headed that way. The Dodgers lost star shortstop Trea Turner to the Philadelphia Phillies in free agency this offseason, so Rojas would step in as a temporary solution for the Dodgers at the 6 in 2023. The 33-year-old hit a disappointing .236/.283/.323 with a .605 OPS, six home runs, 36 RBI, 34 runs scored and nine stolen bases in 140 games for the Fish in 2022, but he also played most of the season with a wrist injury that required surgery. In nine major-league seasons, he's been a .260/.314/.358 hitter with a career .672 OPS. If healthy and in a much stronger Dodgers lineup, Rojas will have much more fantasy appeal.
