Only 10 game DL but he's been off this year. I wonder if the Dodgers would pay a good price for Ervin Santana. Couple guys in their org would be intriguing. Keibert Ruiz, Alex Verdugo, Sterling Heredia, and Walker Buehler would all be interesting targets. They could pay a big price with this year looking like their year

It's a possibility.  I mean, the timing in right:  competitive team's ace goes down with injuries and are looking for a capable starter to fill in for him the rest of this year.  The only issue might be that Ervin has another year on his contract. May not be insurmountable. 

 

Then again, LA has the minor league players that could cause a much bigger splash.

It's not my fault !

Well, his era is up 0.35 and he has more than doubled his bb and hr rates from last year!

Santana and Duensing for Kershaw

I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

I'm skeptical Kershaw would pass the Twins rigorous medical examination.

Guys, Kershaw is on the DL to give him some rest and preserve the rest of his innings for later in the season. The Dodgers have roughly 8 MLB caliber veteran starters  plus a couple young guys and they've been doing this all year with their starters. They also have an organizational philosophy for trading for young pitching and rarely trading it away. There is zero chance they would give up anything of value for Santana. They don't need him and they won't give any pitching of value for him.

I know Dr Watkins, he was an orthodontist when I was a kid. Can't be that serious, he's probably just getting his braces off.
