The Dodgers are the World Series champs and are already favored to repeat with their roster still generally intact. Justin Turner is their only high profile free agents, so they should have a quiet offseason. Turner received a qualifying offer four years ago before re-signing with the Dodgers and was not eligible to receive another.

That doesn’t mean they won’t be in the hunt for a rehab project that can bolster the bullpen or the starting rotations. The Dodgers acquired veteran reliever Corey Knebel from the Brewers ahead of the non-tender deadline. The right-hander missed the 2019 season due to Tommy John surgery but has a proven track record, recording 55 saves from 2017-18 along with an All-Star nod in 2017. Chris Archer is a target for the organization as he has ties to Los Angeles president Andrew Friedman.

Third Baseman

Justin Turner was the face of the Dodgers, but has arthritic knees. He is the ideal designated hitter if the National League continues to use one in 2021. If Turner leaves, they will need someone to platoon with Edwin Rios. An interesting option would be to move Corey Seager from shortstop to third and make a play for Francisco Lindor via trade.

Dodgers Starting Pitching

Dodgers pitcher David Price opted out of the 2020 MLB season due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The rotation behind him included Julio Urias, Dustin May, and Tony Gonsolin. Having the veteran or a replacement would provide the depth to put Urías, May, or Gonsolin in the back of the bullpen, a tactic that worked so well with Urías in October.
