Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price and Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies are two starting pitchers whose names have been brought up in trade rumors that the Los Angeles Dodgers were mentioned in.
However, general manager Ned Colletti implied that the team is unlikely to acquire either of the two left-handers. To obtain Price or Hamels the Dodgers would more than likely have to give up elite prospects, which Colletti reiterated isn’t something he’s interested in doing.
The Dodgers starting rotation has generally been consistent as a group and pitched well throughout the season. However, there’s been a bit of a drop off with Dan Haren struggling and some uncertainty may lie ahead as Josh Beckett was placed on the disabled list with a hip injury.
