Marlins starter Pablo López a potential target

The Los Angeles Dodgers have a great starting rotation … and they might try to make it even better with Miami Marlins starting pitcher Pablo López

That Los Angeles Dodgers have a bunch of great starting pitchers, even with their ace Walker Buehler in 60-day IL. Clayton Kershaw was the All-Star Game Starting Pitcher for the NL. Tyler Anderson was an all star. Tony Gonsolin was an all star. Julio Urías won 20 games last year, placed 7th in the NL Cy Young Awards voting and has a 2.71 ERA (52 percent better than the league average).

But acc Jack Harris from The Los Angeles Timesthe Dodgers are looking to increase their rotation even more with Miami Marlins pitcher Pablo López.

The Dodgers are interested in Marlin’s SP Pablo López

Pablo López had a very good season for the Miami Marlins this year and they could sell him to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

As August begins, López leads the majors in starts at 21. He has a 3.41 ERA, a 119 ERA+ and a 3.60 FIP. He also averages 2.7 walks and one strikeout per inning.

It would be a huge trade for the Dodgers to get him because he’s under team control for this season and the next two years. He’s had a 126 ERA+ and a 136 ERA+ (31 starts combined) in the last two seasons respectively, so he has a track record of pitching as well.

Harris also mentions that veteran helper Anthony Bass (who is in Miami’s bullpen) could also be a potential target, so it seems the Dodgers want to shore up their pitching staff in general. That’s always a good idea because, as the saying goes, “You can never have enough pitches.”

However, as Harris notes, any potential deal would depend on whether or not the club thinks they can bring in outfielder Juan Soto from the Washington Nationals.

With López, the Dodgers would have one of the best rotations in recent memory and would strengthen in the playoffs. López might not even move into the postseason, but he would be a great option for the bullpen. Marlins starter Pablo López a potential target
