The most overlooked quote of the 2015 trade deadline.

This quote from Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi was so overlooked, I completely missed it for two days. I only noticed it just now as I was going over notes for an off-day story. Here it is (words bolded for emphasis):

There were certainly conversations we had with teams where all of our players were at least asked for.

There you have it. If anyone reported that a Dodger player’s name came up in trade discussions this year, they were correct.

Literally every rumor was true.

And yet somehow, not a single player on the Dodgers’ active major league roster was traded. Amazing how that works.

Yimi Garcia optioned to Triple-A to make room for Mat Latos.

The Dodgers optioned Yimi Garcia to Triple-A Oklahoma City to make room on the 25-man roster for today’s starter, Mat Latos.

The move had been expected for a few days. The Dodgers had an eight-man bullpen and a 72-hour window to add Latos to their 25-man roster from the time he was acquired in a trade with the Miami Marlins on Thursday.

Garcia leads the Dodgers in appearances this season with 41, but only one in his most recent big league stint. He was last optioned to Triple-A on July 7.
