After trading Alex Wood, Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig to the Cincinnati Reds, the Los Angeles Dodgers now find themselves in great position to spend this offseason.

The blockbuster deal helped the Dodgers clear room under MLB’s luxury-tax threshold, even after they waive Homer Bailey’s massive contract.

It’s the type of move that a team only makes with bigger plans. Wood and Puig would have been significant contributors for the Dodgers in 2018 and they played key roles in the team’s run to the World Series.

As fans and analysts started to connect the dots and work towards an idea following the financially-beneficial deal, everyone got excited as it centered around one name being the big target for the Dodgers and the next star in Los Angeles.
