Dodgers Offered Yasiel Puig to Nationals for Bryce Harper

The Los Angeles Dodgers have reportedly been interested in acquiring Washington Nationals superstar Bryce Harper, and attempted to land him via trade last season before Washington ultimately decided to keep him for the remainder of the year.

According to the Los Angeles Times’ Jorge Castillo, the Dodgers offered Yasiel Puig as part of a potential deal to land Harper from Washington, but were unsuccessful in their attempt to pry the outfield slugger from the Nationals.

Washington had placed Harper on waivers but pulled him off when the Dodgers claimed him.

While the deal didn’t come to fruition, it’s fun to imagine what the Dodgers could have done with Harper in their lineup, and to wonder if it would have changed the outcome of the World Series, which they lost to the Boston Red Sox.
