The Los Angeles Dodgers

Fiers has not been linked to any rumors involving the Dodgers specifically, but the Dodgers are always in play when pitchers are on the move. Gearing up for the stretch run, depth is a great asset. Fiers would provide the Dodgers just that.

After reportedly landing Manny Machado for a trio of prospects, the Dodgers still have some talent left in their system.

Romer Cuadrado would be a target return. Rated as the 23rd best prospect in the Dodgers’ system by MLBPipeline, Cuadrado would add a lottery ticket prospect to the Tigers’ farm. Cuadrado has a large frame built for power, but a flat swing prevents him from tapping into it. He has average speed and range in right field, where his plus arm profiles best.

Strikeouts have been a problem for Cuadrado. If he makes adjustments to his approach, he could profile as a fourth outfielder.
