Dodgers continue shortstop hunt…trading Syndergaard for Rosario
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ shortstop recruitment continues.
The Dodgers have acquired shortstop Ahmed Rosario from the Cleveland Indians, according to ESPN and other local media outlets.
Rosario has a .273 batting average, .308 on-base percentage and .400 slugging percentage in 791 games over seven seasons with the New York Mets and Cleveland.
This season, Rosario is batting .265 with a .306 on-base percentage, .369 slugging percentage, three home runs and 40 RBIs in 94 games as Cleveland’s starting shortstop.
This is his second trade since being sent to Cleveland by the Mets in exchange for Francisco Lindor and Carlos Carrasco in January 2021.
The Dodgers have been struggling to find a starting shortstop since Gavin Lux went down with an injury during spring training. Miguel Rojas, Chris Taylor, and even Mookie Betts have played shortstop.
This summer’s offseason, they’re focusing on shortstop for now. After reacquiring Kike Hernandez from the Boston Red Sox, they added Rosario.바카라사이트

This is the second straight year Syndergaard has been traded.
