While the Dodgers will start their World Series run on the road this Thursday, the off-season chatter has begun. With four high priced outfielders, there is a consensus that the Dodgers will try to trade one of them in the off-season as they look to improve at second base. According to insider Ken Rosenthal, the Rangers may be a potential destinations for Matt Kemp. While it’s interesting to hear his name mentioned considering all the injuries this season, Kemp has played well since being activated from the DL on September 17.
While the Dodgers have reportedly been interested in Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reported otherwise today. According to a high-ranking National League executive, the Dodgers have no intention to bid on Cano this winter as they have no interest in him. While the organization is willing to spend money to build a dynasty, Cano and his camp recently countered an offer from the Yankees in the neighborhood of 10 years, $310 million. With Cano turning 31-years-old, it is very difficult to see the Dodgers investing a significant amount of money on a second baseman who is on the downside of his career.
