MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Los Angeles DodgersThe Los Angeles Dodgers saw another one of their players from the 2013 season sign with another team as second baseman Mark Ellis signed a deal with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Ellis became expendable with the signing of Alexander Guerrero, but was still in talks with the Dodgers about a role in 2014 even after they declined his option. The 36-year-old will spend time at second base with Cardinals’ rookie second baseman Kolten Wong and could see some time at third base.

Also, the Dodgers remain the favorites to land left-hander David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays, according to executives from around the league. The Dodgers have the prospects to acquire Price and the money to sign him to an extension.

The team would likely have to part with at least two of the following prospects: Joc Pederson, Zach Lee, Julio Urias and Corey Seager. The Dodgers have said they plan on replenishing the farm system but could be tempted by a rotation with Price, Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke.
