Freddy Galvis- Los Angeles Dodgers
Right now the Dodgers are very thin up the middle, using a combination of Chris Taylor, Enrique Hernandez, and Max Muncy to help fill things out. Seager obviously takes over at shortstop again when he comes back, but he missed the majority of last season too, so it wouldn’t hurt to have some insurance and Galvis could provide that.
Despite the fact that he’s having a bit of a down season at the plate, he would probably serve as an upgrade over both Hernandez and Taylor as well, neither of whom have hit all that well this season. They are both capable outfielders as well, and that would give the Dodgers the flexibility that they enjoy to use those two as utility players rather than in a full-time role in the infield.
Galvis isn’t going to be a big impact player, but his solid defence at both shortstop and second base would be a plus for the Dodgers, and he wouldn’t cost them a whole lot in terms of salary, and likely in a return as well. He’s making just four million this season with a club option for 5.5 million in 2020 that carries a buyout for one million. The Blue Jays should also be in a position to send a little bit of money with him if necessary as well.
Like Smoak, finding a trade partner for Galvis isn’t going to be an automatic thing, but I feel there’s a decent fit with the Dodgers at the moment.
