Twins Send Dozier to Dodgers

Minnesota Twins trade Brian Dozier to Los Angeles Dodgers

Turner let the social media world know that there was no intent behind him moving away, as he only meant to give one of the coaches room to greet Dozier. Their lineup has been in flux, with Arizona and Colorado right on their heels.

In 104 games this season with the Twins, Dozier was hitting.224 with 16 home runs and had 52 RBI. The 37 home runs he hit over the 2015 and 2016 seasons for the Tampa Bay Rays look like the aberration in an otherwise unremarkable career, but the Twins needed a body to play second base through at least the month of August.

Signalling the front office's shift in focus to the future amid a disappointing season, Dozier followed starting pitcher Lance Lynn, relief pitchers Zach Duke and Ryan Pressly and infielder Eduardo Escobar out the door. Forsythe's inclusion in the deal is likely to make the money work and he also allows the Twins to keep Nick Gordon at Triple-A until he is absolutely ready to see major league action.

The slugging second baseman heads to the Dodgers as he tries to fully break out of his struggles at the plate to this point in the season. Raley is now playing at the Double-A level and has hit.275/.345/.477 and has a.822 OPS with 17 home runs. Forsythe, plagued by injuries throughout his two seasons with the Dodgers, is making an identical $9 million to Dozier's contract this season and is headed for free agency as well. He was drafted in the eighth round by the Twins in 2009.

Urban Meyer put on paid administrative leave
At Big Ten media days, Meyer said he knew of the incident in 2009 and that he and Shelley Meyer addressed it with the Smiths. According to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer , police were involved nine times between January 1, 2012, and July 26, 2018.

"Brian's brand here in Minnesota, I don't know if you can get much better than that", Twins manager Paul Molitor said. It seems only fitting that after there were rumors that Dozier may end up with the Milwaukee Brewers, Boston Red Sox, or even the Cleveland Indians that he would end up in Los Angeles in the end.

The Minnesota Twins received second baseman Logan Forsythe and prospects Devin Smeltzer and Luke Raley in exchange for Dozier.

Back with the Twins to open 2017, Dozier hit 34 homers and won his first Rawlings Gold Glove Award as he led the Twins to their first postseason appearance in seven years. Forsythe will also be a free agent in the fall.

In 70 games, Forsythe is hitting just.207 with a.270 on-base percentage.
