2. Cesar Hernandez
Not every Dodger fan is going to love the idea of trading for Cesar Hernandez but the switch-hitting second baseman makes sense for all of the right reasons for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
As the Philadelphia Phillies pursue both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, the team continues to dangle potential trade chips on the market. One of those trade chips is Cesar Hernandez, the other being Maikel Franco.
Franco is the more likely of the two to be dealt. According to Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports, the Phillies will only trade Hernandez if the team can get a valuable trade in return. If not, the team has no problem holding on to him.
With such a deep farm system and a surplus of big league starting pitching, the Los Angeles Dodgers can give the Phillies what they would want for Hernandez.
Hernandez would be a great everyday option to acquire and even if he is struggling, is still one of the best platoon options the Dodgers can get. Last season was a bit of a down year for Hernandez but he still continued to thrive against left-handed pitching.
Hernandez is a career .297 hitter against southpaws and a .268 hitter against right-handed pitching. He does not have a ton of power or speed but could be a nice lead-off option against left-handed pitching with his .366 on-base percentage against lefties.
This would give the Dodgers three extremely talented left-handed specialists in David Freese, Enrique Hernandez and Cesar Hernandez.
