• Dodgers unlikely to add top starter via trade

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Nov 8, 2012
    The Dodgers are on the hunt for a significant starting pitcher, but after an initial round of talks with other clubs, general manager Ned Colletti said it's "probably unlikely" he'll get one in a trade. "It might be a touch more possible, but you never know with that until you're done," said the Dodgers general manager, who added that he also spoke to clubs about acquiring "some players who play multiple positions." That leaves free agency, and the most attractive target there is Zack Greinke, the 2009 American League Cy Young Award winner whose rumored demands of six years and $150 million might be even more than the suddenly deep-pocketed Dodgers are willing to commit, even though he's only 29. "We're fine with Hanley playing shortstop, but he's got to be better [defensively]," said Colletti, reiterating that Ramirez might play the position in winter ball and might accept tutoring from infield coach Tim Wallach in Arizona before Spring Training.
