It’s no secret that the Los Angeles Dodgers are struggling. As of right now, they’re 30-40 and the only team in the NL West below .500. However, nobody else in the division is setting the world afire, as the division-leading Arizona Diamondbacks are just 39-33.
It’s certainly within the realm of possibility that the Dodgers could make a run at the division crown, but they’ll need some help to do that.
Midseason acquisitions would go a long way towards shoring up the roster, but a team that’s going for it now the way the Dodgers are doesn’t usually deal from its big league roster. They also don’t have much in the way of assets anymore, and what they do have is mostly on the farm. That being said, the big league roster is full of guys who are not assured of roster spots going forward and could be dealt at the July 31 deadline.
