Dodgers Acquire Corey Knebel

In a surprising move coming out of Milwaukee Brewers camp, Corey Knebel was non-tendered by the club this afternoon, and just a few moments ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers made a trade for the RHP. The 2017 All-Star who is returning from Tommy John surgery back in 2019, made 15 appearances for the Brew-Crew in 2020, pitching to a 6.08 ERA in 13.1 innings pitched. If Knebel can return to his dominant 2017-2018 form, in which he had a combined 2.68 ERA in 131.1 IP between the two seasons, he will be a huge addition to the Dodgers already dominant bullpen. The Dodgers made a similar buy-low acquisition for a once highly dominant RHP last offseason in Blake Treinen, who pitched valuable innings for the Dodgers in route to their first title since 1988.
