Dodger Links: Decisions loom over the second half

Stephen Dunn

At 47-47 and 2.5 games back, the Dodgers will attempt to bolster their roster for them home stretch.

About one month ago, the Dodgers could've been considered sellers at the deadline. Flash forward to present day, and nearly every rumor mentions the Dodgers as potential suitors.

The possibilities are endless during the trade deadline, per Mike Petriello of Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illnes. Petriello mentioned the Dodgers will be looking for bullpen help, interested in acquiring another starting pitcher while adding one new infielder.

Yasiel Puig won't be relocating any time soon, but he does posses incomprehensible value, per Dave Cameron of Fan Graphs.com.

Among the most coveted relievers is Minnesota Twins' Glen Perkins, and the Dodgers are very interested, per MLB Trade Rumors.

Matt Kemp will be back in the lineup on Sunday, per Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles. Saxon states numerous reasons why the Dodgers will win the NL West.

The optimism about the Dodgers continues, and Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register (code necessary) addresses their solid chances.

After the recent impressive future's game performance, Dodgers outfield prospect Joc Pederson is on the rise, per Jim Bowden of ESPN.com (insider).

Fans are getting excited about the Dodgers-Yankees series, and single game tickets are now available, per Dodgers.com.
