Los Angeles Dodgers Rumors: 3 Early-Season Trade Candidates

Welcome to Baseball Rumors' Early-Season Trade Candidates series. During it, we will be looking at three players who are already emerging as trade candidates during the beginning portion of the campaign. 

In this latest piece, we will be looking at the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

Ryan Pepiot: Ryan Pepiot has been emerging as a possible trade candidate for the Dodgers. It ultimately makes sense when noting that the Dodgers have World Series or bust expectations, and Pepiot could help land them a notable talent as we get closer to the deadline. Several rebuilding teams would love to acquire the young pitcher. 

Gavin Stone: Another notable Dodgers prospect who we could see moved this season is Gavin Stone. The youngster is viewed to have a bright future, but the Dodgers' strong pitching depth may make him expendable if they can use him to help land them a player who will help them immediately. 

Dalton Rushing: Dalton Rushing is a promising catcher prospect who the Dodgers could be open to moving. He is a few years away from being MLB-ready, but rebuilding teams would love to take a chance on him.
