He will give up right-hander Noah Syndergaard and recruit shortstop Ahmed Rosario. “We are reviewing medical records.” Both teams have yet to make an official announcement.
Rosario made his big league debut with the New York Mets in 2017 and has played for Cleveland since the 2021 season. His performance this season is 102 hits, 3 home runs, 40 RBIs, 51 runs, and 9 steals in 94 games, with a batting average of 0.265 OPS of 0.675.
Rosario, who has been living in the Major League for seven years, can appear in the free agent (FA) market after this season. Last season, he signed a one-year, $7.8 million contract with Cleveland.

However, he started 12 games and was sluggish with 1 win, 4 losses, 55⅓ innings, 44 runs (44 earned runs), 15 walks, 38 strikeouts, and a 7.16 ERA. In particular, he allowed 12 home runs.
Cinderga sought to revive at the Dodgers, but failed to play for a month in June due to a blister injury problem, and after returning, he appeared in one game and collapsed with six runs (six earned runs) in three innings.
The Dodgers strengthened the infielder for two consecutive days by recruiting utility Kike Hernandez, who can defend infield and outfield, as a trade the previous day (26th).
The Dodgers sent right-handers Nick Robertson and Justin Heigenman to Boston and brought Hernandez. He even receives Boston’s salary subsidy. Hernandez will wear the Dodgers uniform again after three seasons.
Hernandez started as the sixth batter and second baseman in the 2023 Major League game against the Toronto Blue Jays at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, on the 27th and recorded a multi-hit. But the team lost 1-8.
