Scooter Gennett is a guy that I would love to see the Los Angeles Dodgers trade for and would help the team’s short-term need at second base.
You could make the argument that the Dodgers do not need to add at second base with Max Muncy, Enrique Hernandez and Chris Taylor all being able to play at second. However, with the possibility of an outfielder or two being traded, the team might need Taylor and Hernandez more in the outfield.
And while Muncy is a great bat, there is a real worry that he will fizzle out next season and not provide a good outlook at second defensively. Heck, the Dodgers might even use Cody Bellinger in center more with Muncy at first.
Gennett would be a great bat for the Dodgers to go after and put atop the order for the heavy bats to follow. Gennett was an all-star for the first time last season, hitting .310 with a .847 OPS and 23 long bombs.
Since he is in the last year of his deal and the Reds are in no spot to contend this season, he will not be overly expensive to trade for. While the team would have to part ways with a big league ready young arm like Dennis Santana, it would be more than worth it considering all of the starting pitching depth on the Dodgers.
Edwin Rios is a mid-tier corner infield prospect that hit .304 across 88 games in triple-A last season and Omar Estevez is a solid, young, prospect that performed fairly well in Rancho Cucamonga in 2018.
