Enticing but scary also. I'd be open

to adding Alex Wood to a Puig deal b/c I think LAD are not to thrilled with AWood's performances since the AS season. I think Wood's delivery change was in concert with dealing with arm inflammation issues for parts of 3 seasons now.  Kluber is controlled, even to having a club option in the 2021 season fits perfectly for LA. Verdugo can assume RF with probably little if any defensive dropoff. He can actually play all 3 positions so he's a very valuable replacement.   I think Verdugo will out hit Puig once he has "made the team comfort level"  season under his belt. His defense is not that far off of what Puig has given us the past couple seasons also.

My only downside with Kluber is that the article mentioned the knee injections to get him through this last half season, and even more concern is his Post season #s being winless with an ERA @10.6. Some of that from pitching on short rest but who knows.. You must get to the post season though, so I'd support this possible deal.

If the deal would be for Carrasco, I'd probably still give up Puig but nothing more, regardless of how much I hope they can trade AWood for value.
