no doubt to protect Soto.  From what, I don't know.

good for him.  Plainly, there was no future for him here.  I think Pineda's development and Millas doomed him.


His D may be good enough to be a backup elsewhere. Oddly, except for 2021 in AAA, he's hit OK in the minors at all levels, including last year at AAA.  He's a year older than Sandy Leon when Leon got his break with the Red Sox.

and AJ Alexy DFA'd to make room for him. MAT traded for a couple of minor leaguers.

So trade Robles, Antuna, and two more minor leaguers to the Twins for MAT. That settles CF until Hassell is ready, if Hassell makes it.

Wander Suero to the Dodgers on a minor league deal. I never expected to hear that name again.

I just hope they don't use the Dave Martinez flowchart that had 'and for some reason, Wander Suero,' as an option to go to in the late innings of a close game. I can't remember who posted it but it was a spot on and hilarious graphic

The Dodgers will fix him and you will see him in the playoffs. Just the way it usually goes.

this may be closer to the truth than we think.  The thing Suero had was a ton of movement and spin on his cutter. This was a very good pitch in 2019 & 2020, but fell apart in 2021. He hung out a bit in the Angels AAA last year (20 appearances, 23 innings) but was similarly ineffective.  The dodgers are pretty good at working with pitchers strengths, so it would not be surprising to see them figure out how to fix him.
