Top MLB Insider Reveals " Most Aggressive" Team Trying To Acquire Dylan Cease

The Los Angeles Dodgers have emerged as one of the most aggressive teams in the pursuit of talented starting pitcher Dylan Cease from the Chicago White Sox, according to insider Ken Rosenthal.

Cease's availability has generated significant interest in the baseball world, thanks to his appealing contract situation.

With two years of club control remaining and a modest $8.8 million salary in 2024, he represents a valuable asset for teams seeking to bolster their pitching rotation.

Cease's 2023 performance may have dipped from his standout 2022 season, where he was the runner-up in the AL Cy Young race with a remarkable 2.20 ERA and 227 strikeouts.

Nevertheless, over the past three seasons, the 27-year-old holds a 3.54 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, with 667 strikeouts across 526.2 innings and 97 starts.

For the Dodgers, who are confronting a potentially weakened starting rotation following Clayton Kershaw's departure to free agency, acquiring Cease's services could provide a much-needed infusion of experience and talent.

Alongside standouts like Walker Buehler and a promising young crop of pitchers, Cease could prove to be a crucial addition as the Dodgers aim to maintain their dominance in the fiercely competitive NL West. Photo Credit: Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports
