Dodgers Reds

A move which had been rumored for several weeks is finally upon us, as the Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers have completed a trade which will change the outlook of both teams moving forward.

Yasiel is no longer a friend of the Dodgers.

Per reports, the Dodgers are sending Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig and Alex Wood to the Reds in a move that could prompt a significant free agent pickup by the name of Bryce Harper. After all, the Dodgers plan to keep their payroll under the luxury tax threshold for at least the next four years, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The Los Angeles Dodgers completed a trade with the Cincinnati Reds that included Major League Baseball star Yasiel Puig and three-time All-star Matt Kemp.

In return, the Dodgers will get right-handed pitcher Homer Bailey, backup catcher/infielder Kyle Farmer and two prospects.

What's more, they're intent on having the blame for any government shutdown directed exclusively at the president. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters he hasn't given up hope that a shutdown can be averted.

But the biggest piece in the deal might turn out to be Wood, who has a combined ERA of 3.20 over the last two seasons.

"We are in position right now where we still feel like we have a really good team, but I feel like we want to continue to add to it before we get to spring training", Friedman said.

Trading Bailey is a big win for the Reds, as the right-hander has gone down-hill quickly after signing a lucrative six-year, $105 million extension with the Reds in February 2014. Over 146 games, he hit.290/.338/.481 (121 OPS+) with 21 homers and 85 RBIs, earning his third All-Star berth while winning the Players Choice NL Comeback Player of the Year.

Soria was 3-1 with a 4.09 ERA last season after being acquired in July by the Milwaukee Brewers from the Chicago White Sox. Maybe a second baseman would make more sense.
