The Dodgers have been one of the most-active teams on the trade market this month, acquiring All-Star shortstop Manny Machado at the All-Star break, and Los Angeles has reportedly acquired another top infielder ahead of the deadline.

Brian Dozier, a 2015 All-Star and 2017 Gold Glove winner, is reportedly heading to the Dodgers.

Jerry Crasnick first reported the news.

"Brian Dozier has been traded to the #Dodgers. Deal is done. @Ken_Rosenthal reported close," he reported.

Jeff Passan has confirmed the trade. "Source: Brian Dozier is headed to the Dodgers. @jcrasnick had it done and @Ken_Rosenthal close. Dodgers are sliding just under luxury tax, as Dozier's AAV is only $5M per year," he reports.

Dozier, 31, is struggling this season. He's hitting .224, but has 16 home runs and more than 50 RBI.

The second baseman is one of the top fielders in the game, too.

More moves could be coming. The MLB's trade deadline is set for 4 p.m. E.T. Stay tuned.
