Los Angeles Dodgers & Mikwaukee Brewers Talking Blockbuster Trade?

The possibility of the Los Angeles Dodgers trading for Milwaukee Brewers' players Corbin Burnes and Willy Adames has generated considerable buzz in the baseball community, with Mark Feinsand linking the two teams in trade talks.

As the offseason progresses, the Dodgers are expected to be very active, especially in strengthening their starting rotation.

The name of Corbin Burnes has been frequently linked with the Dodgers. Burnes' situation with the Brewers, particularly after disputes over his arbitration asking price, has led many to believe that a trade is likely.

Acquiring Burnes would provide the Dodgers with an ace-level pitcher, significantly bolstering their rotation.

There is also a possibility that Burnes might sign long-term with LA, which would be a significant coup for the Dodgers, securing one of the league's top starters​.

In addition to Burnes, the Dodgers are also interested in Willy Adames, potentially in a packaged deal. Adames, known for his solid defensive skills and reliable power, would fill a crucial role at shortstop for the Dodgers.

While LA has Gavin Lux returning, his performance is uncertain, and Adames would offer an upgrade, potentially allowing Lux to shift back to second base.

Last season with the Brewers, Adames hit 24 home runs and 80 RBIs​.

The trade scenario is made more plausible by the Brewers' current transition phase.

After being swept in the National League Wild Card Series and losing manager Craig Counsell, the Brewers appear to be in a rebuilding mode.

With this in mind, they are open to trading any player, including Burnes and Adames.

This openness to trades, combined with the Dodgers' need for a robust starting pitcher and a reliable shortstop, makes the trade a potentially beneficial move for both teams.

For the Dodgers, landing both players would significantly strengthen their bid for a World Series run in 2024​. Photo Credit: Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports
