With a little more than 24 hours left before Monday's non-waiver trade deadline, the Dodgers haven't made any moves yet but are still linked to the usual suspects. But as the deadline is fast approaching, everything is heightened, including speculation at lineup decisions.

For instance, Jay Bruce was originally in the lineup for the Reds on Sunday afternoon in San Diego, but was scratched, just given a day off. Suuuuure.

The Dodgers have been linked to Bruce, as they have to various Tampa Bay pitchers, including Chris Archer and Matt Moore, both of whom pitched at Dodger Stadium this week.

This makes the lineup or Double-A Tulsa all the more noteworthy.

Absent are first baseman Cody Bellinger and center fielder Alex Verdugo, lineup decisions the Dodgers are trying to downplay, naturally.

"Random" is an odd word choice there.

The rumors also include other options at both pitcher and outfielder.

Reddick bats left-handed, but point stands.

Oh, and if complicated, multi-team deals are more your bag, there is this fun Jonathan Lucroy nugget ...

Still a day left for the rumors to fly!
