The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired RHP Tyler Glasnow and OF Manuel Margot from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for RHP Ryan Pepiot and OF Jonny Deluca just two days ago, per Jeff Passan of ESPN.
The Dodgers wasted no time by extending their newly acquired starter, Tyler Glasnow to a five-year, $135 million contract. Glasnow will now immediately slide into the top of the rotation, a rotation that so desperately needed it.
Glasnow, without a doubt, has the potential to be a top pitcher in baseball. Since joining Tampa Bay in 2018, Glasnow has compiled a 3.20 ERA and has been the ace of the Rays since the departure of Blake Snell.
The talent of Glasnow has never been in question, however, his ability to stay on the field has been the biggest issue. Tyler Glasnow hasn’t had a year where he started in more then 21 games. The most is 21, which came last season in 2023.
Glasnow will now join the Dodgers staff that looks much better with him in it. The Dodgers don't seem to be done adding due to superstar, Shohei Ohtani, not set to pitch until 2025. The only question is, will Tyler Glasnow stay on the field?
