Los Angeles Dodgers

Needs: Pitching, shortstop
Assets: MLB ready prospects

The Dodgers have their eyes on hoarding as much talent as possible. After signing Shohei Ohtani to a sweetheart deferred contract, they have added the best player in the game while maintaining as much financial flexibility as possible.

After letting Corey Seager walk in free agency, the Dodgers need a shortstop. They've had their eyes on Willy Adames for years and with one season left before he reaches free agency, the two sides could connect if the Brewers are willing to part with him. It would take a high price, but the Dodgers have the assets to pay it.

The same goes for Corbin Burnes. The Dodgers need more pitching and Burnes is another dream target for them. If the Brewers do decide to move Burnes, the Dodgers will be a major player for him. Again, the price will be high, but the Dodgers can afford to pay it.

As much as the Dodgers need pitching, they are loaded with talented, yet unproven starting pitchers. They're young and have limited MLB experience, but that may make them perfect for a Brewers team that will need to reshape its rotation. For players like Adames or Burnes, the Brewers can be expected to target arms such as Ryan Pepiot, Emmett Sheehan, Gavin Stone, Nick Frasso, Landon Knack, and Kyle Hurt.

Another name that could be of interest to Milwaukee is Ryan Yarbrough, a veteran swingman who could fill a spot in Milwaukee's rotation or bullpen but definitely can eat up innings. He has just a year left before free agency, so he wouldn't be involved in a potential Burnes or Adames deal, but rumor has it Yarbrough is available.

Right now, the Brewers appear likely to hold on to both Burnes and Adames, but if that changes, the Dodgers are a logical trade partner.
