After a day full of rumors on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers weren’t mentioned too much on Wednesday.

One from late Tuesday night showed why the team hasn’t made any traction toward a deal for JT Realmuto.

The way the Dodgers are presently constructed, Realmuto is more of a luxury than a necessity and trading one of their best overall players for a luxury isn’t something the front office is going to do.

There was only one other rumor and it involves a team that was mentioned on Tuesday in the Cincinnati Reds.

If we look at the deal as Matt Kemp and Alex Wood for Homer Bailey then it could work for the Dodgers in a couple ways. Yes, they clear salary like Joel Sherman notes. Maybe more importantly a deal like this would clear some space on the roster. It’s well known that the team has a surplus of starters and outfielders, and if they plan to add any of those two positions then they need to rid themselves of some others.

A lack of rumors could be a ‘calm before the storm’ vibe but with the Winter Meetings ending on Thursday, it may also mean that nothing is happening yet.
