One Dodger might be on the move in the coming months leading up to the deadline.
The Dodgers may trade left-hander David Price “to give him a starting opportunity,” according to The Athletic’s Peter Gammons. Price has made five relief appearances for Los Angeles this year but has not gotten a chance to start.
Price, who turns 37 in August was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers from the Boston Red Sox as part of the Mookie Betts trade all the way back in February in 2020. He opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID, then totaled a 4.03 ERA in 73 ⅔ innings in 39 appearances (11 starts) last year. So far this year, he has allowed one earned run in 4 ⅔ innings.
The Dodgers rotation includes Walker Buehler, Clayton Kershaw, Julio Urias, Andrew Heaney, Tony Gonsolin and they will be welcoming Dustin May back after the All-Star Break.
