Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers consistently boast one of the best farm systems in baseball, and that’s one they have the second-best win percentage in the MLB since 2010. They have plenty to pick from when it comes to potential trades. In the case of the Tigers, they should go after one guy, Gavin Lux.

Lux is a 21-year-old middle infielder who is not a power hitter, like the other guys on this list, but he can still hit. He is a great contact hitter who is hitting .345/.405/.591 between double and Triple-A this season. Lux has shown decent pop at the plate too, hitting 17 HRs and 51 RBI to that impressive batting average. He could play either SS or 2B and the Tigers have an opening at both of those positions that Lux would fill perfectly.
