Things have picked up for the Los Angeles Dodgers after inking right-hander Dan Haren to a one-year contract and are now facing the possibility of reliever Brian Wilson bolting for Detroit.
GM Ned Colletti spoke to the media today about Haren and how this doesn’t eliminate the possibility they look to add another starting pitcher. Another interesting tidbit from Colletti’s session was his discussion about Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero and how he might not be set as the starting second baseman, but rather could move to shortstop or third base.
Earlier in the day, the MLB Network crew including insiders Peter Gammons, Tom Verducci and Ken Rosenthal discussed rumors out there surrounding the Dodgers.
Gammons says the Tampa Bay Rays would prefer to trade with the Dodgers if they decide to deal with David Price and mentions Corey Seager and Julio Urias as possible prospects going back to the Rays. Meanwhile, the uncertainty with the posting system has things in the air about Masahiro Tanaka and his availability.
Meanwhile, he says the Dodgers would like to extend Clayton Kershaw, Hanley Ramirez and sign Uribe to a one-year deal, but super agent Scott Boras is trying to push client Stephen Drew on them.
