Dodgers Offered Yasiel Puig to Nationals for Bryce Harper

Published

on

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.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have released veteran right hander Erik Goeddel along with left handed pitcher Zac Rosscup, according to MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick.

Goeddel and Rosscup were both designated for assignment earlier this week as Los Angeles was working out their 40 man roster ahead of the deadline to protect players from the Rule 5 draft.

The 30-year old Goeddel pitched to the tune of a 2.95 ERA this season, splitting time between the Dodgers and the Seattle Mariners, but he struggled with control as he walked 20 batters, threw 3 wild pitches, and hit a batter over 36 2.3 innings played.

Rosscup was claimed off waivers from the Colorado Rockies organization in July of last season and pitched 11 1/3 innings out of the Dodgers’ bullpen.
