Dodgers Rumors: 3 Players Not Expected Back Next Season

After a remarkable 111-win regular season, the Los Angeles Dodgers truly blew it in the postseason; losing to the San Diego Padres in the NLDS. That is unacceptable from a team with "World Series or bust" expectations, and that could force them to make changes this offseason. Here are three players not expected to be back in LA in 2023.

Trea Turner: Trea Turner has the opportunity to hit the open market this offseason and likely will decide to. After all, he is coming off of a second straight All-Star appearance and will surely land a massive contract because of everything he brings to the table. With the Dodgers also being linked to Aaron Judge, they will likely let Turner walk if it means bringing in the superstar outfielder. 

David Price: It is a slam dunk that David Price will not be back with the Dodgers in 2023. The longtime MLB pitcher announced that the 2022 season would be his final one, so naturally, his time in LA is over. Although Price was no longer a star at the end of his career, he will be missed in Los Angeles' bullpen. In 40 games this season, he had a 2-0 record and solid 2.45 ERA. 

Craig Kimbrel: It is safe to say that Craig Kimbrel will not be a Dodger next season. The veteran reliever was left off of the Dodgers' playoff roster, so it's clear that they will be okay letting him hit free agency. The eight-time closer will be hoping to find a new home and have a bounce-back campaign in 2023 from here.
