The Dodgers are “going big game hunting” at the deadline

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN is hearing that the Dodgers will be active at the trade deadline but not in an “add some spare parts” kind of way. Rather, a rival executive tells Crasnick that the Dodgers are “Big Game Hunting,”

Crasnick takes that to mean that they will not be looking for the random reliever or starting pitching depth. To the contrary, he mentions someone like Chris Archer or another top-of-the-rotation starter. That would certainly move the needle.

Yesterday Ken Rosenthal mentioned that the Dodgers might consider trading Yasiel Puig. If they’re going to go big, he would certainly be a chip to use to get there.
