MLB Rumors: Royals Closer Wade Davis ‘Interests’ Dodgers; Trade Possible?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in a fierce race against the San Francisco Giants for the National League West title, and like most contending teams, they appear to be looking for bullpen help ahead of Monday’s non-waiver MLB trade deadline.

Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball reported Wednesday that Kansas City Royals closer Wade Davis “is someone who interests the Dodgers.”

Heyman noted the Dodgers already have a potent bullpen, but that Davis is not a rental since his contract doesn’t expire until after next season.

The Royals are the defending World Series champions, and Davis was a huge part of their success last season. He anchored an amazing bullpen that struck fear into opposing lineups.

Adding that kind of piece would be a tremendous boost for the Dodgers in their quest for a World Series title. The price to acquire Davis would, of course, be sky high, but Los Angeles does have the assets to make this kind of deal if it wants to be bold.
