The Los Angeles Dodgers made all of the necessary moves this past month to form a roster capable of making a run in the playoffs. As September arrives and the postseason gets closer, teams will begin to feel that sense of urgency as they trail in the standings. For the Dodgers, it's time to make their move or it may be too late once the regular season wraps up.
After a walk-off win on Sunday, Los Angeles sits 4.5 games back of the Giants in the National League West. The club also sits a half game back of the Cardinals for the second wild card spot, with the Braves holding a three-game lead for the first spot.
