 The Los Angeles Dodgers main priority at the trade deadline is to find a deal for Rangers ace Yu Darvish, according to Tom Wilhelmsen Jersey a report from Joel Sherman of the New York Post.
The Dodgers have repeatedly come up in trade rumors for Darvish. SportsDay s Evan Grant reported that the Rangers sent scouts to watch the Dodgers Triple A affiliate on Friday.
Among the teams the Rangers have spoken to regarding Darvish are the Los Angeles Dodgers. Daniels sent a key evaluator to see Los Angeles Triple A team on Friday, Grant reported. Center fielder Alex Verdugo could be a key figure if talks were to advance. And the Dodgers may have seen their need for Darvish grow Sunday. Dallas Clayton Kershaw left his start after two innings with what was described as a lower back injury.
Kershaw may be out 4 6 weeks with his lower back injury suffered on Sunday.
Yahoo! Sports Jeff Passan reported last week that the Rangers have called teams to gauge what kind of package they could receive for Darvish were they to decide to trade him.
Grant explained in a column what the Rangers strategy is with these calls.
What the Rangers must ascertain over the next few days before Darvish s next scheduled start on July 26 is what his market is. And that may not be determined until Oakland s Sonny Gray moves if he does. Gray is more attractive than Darvish to most contenders because he s three years younger he s nearly 28 and under control for two years after this season, Grant wrote. If the Rangers are to extract the best package for Darvish, it behooves them to wait for Gray to be moved and then start getting aggressive with the teams left standing. And there will be teams left standing. The Cubs, New York Yankees, Milwaukee and Houston are all interested in starting pitching.
The Rangers are talking about entertaining offers. Those offers are liable to heat up this week. But they could potentially also be leading the wild card race by the middle of the week.
For his part, Dodgers manager Brian Roberts was clear that his team would benefit from a Darvish trade.
