Dodgers’ reworked trade for Mookie Betts almost complete

first_imgAcquired from the Cincinnati Reds last season, Downs ranks as the 86th-best prospect in baseball on this year’s Baseball America rankings. But the multi-year contracts signed by Max Muncy and Chris Taylor plus the arrival of Gavin Lux at the big-league level made Downs expendable.The 100th pick overall in the 2017 draft, Wong was similarly stuck behind other young catchers Will Smith, Keibert Ruiz and Diego Cartaya (the latter two also ranked on Baseball America’s Top 100).Graterol, 21, has primarily been a starter in the minors and could help replace the depth lost with the trade of Maeda following the free-agent departures of Rich Hill and Hyun-Jin Ryu this winter. But his 100-mph fastball could play in the Dodgers’ bullpen more immediately.
