Who will stay, who will go

The hot stove is heating up and by the end of the week, it appears very likely that the Dodgers will be adding some new blood while saying good-bye to old friends, or never were friends.  This is an exciting time for fans but a strange week for players as they wait to see where they will be playing in the future.

The Dodger 40 man roster currently sits at 39. The Dodgers are expected to sign Rich Hill but they may be delaying that action as they work to clear more space on the 40-man roster.

Veteran Dodgers likely to get moved this week include either Scott Kazmir or Brandon McCarthy or both.  Yasiel Puig’s name keeps getting mentioned. Along with the veterans if the Dodgers do make little or big trades you can expect some prospects to get moved.

Names being mentioned this hot stove include:

Andrew McCutchen, Brian Dozier, Ian Kinsler, and Yangervis Solarte.

Supposedly Justin Turner and Rich Hill are still very much in the Dodger wide angle lens.

This past July I listed the Dodger prospect list and the prospects I least wanted to get traded. Montas was on that list and he was in the Rich Hill trade. Since that time several prospect sites have upgraded their lists so this is what the top thirty Dodger prospect list currently looks like sorted by MLB ranking.

I’ve sorted by the MLB prospect rank, but have also included the Rotowire and Fangraphs Dodger prospect rankings.  As you can see Cody Bellinger is either 1 or 2. Fangraphs is much higher on Yadier Alveraz than they are on Jose De Leon as is Rotowire. Alex Verdugo has the honor of being ranked number three across the board. Rotowire is higher on Starling Heredia than anyone else. DJ Peters pops in on both Fangraphs and Rotowire while being ignored by MLB. Andrew Toles for some reason does not have a fan at MLB but both Rotowire and Fangraphs like him very much. MLB goes 30 deep, Fangraphs goes 21 deep, Rotowire only goes 10 deep.
