The Dodgers have agreed to acquire Rays pitcher Tyler Glasnow in a four-player trade, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported on Thursday. The deal is contingent on Glasnow signing a contract extension with Los Angeles.
Glasnow, 30, is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2024 MLB season on his current deal.
Rays outfielder Manuel Margot will also head to Los Angeles, while Dodgers pitcher Ryan Pepiot and outfielder Jonny Deluca will join Tampa Bay.
The Dodgers continue to stack their roster. The Glasnow trade was reported shortly after the organization hosted an official introductory press conference for two-way superstar Shohei Ohtani, who signed a 10-year, $700 million deal last week.
