Dodgers rumors: LA willing to spend this offseason

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Even after adding $400 million in player contracts this season, the Dodgers will be able to make a significant acquisition this winter.

While the Los Angeles Dodgers have already added over $400 million in player contracts since the new ownership group took over, Chairman Mark Walters told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times that the team still has the financial flexibility to make significant acquisitions over the winter:

Chairman Mark Walter said the team still has the financial wherewithal to make significant acquisitions over the winter, "If it's there and if it's right for us."

Walter did caution that the club will not be careless with finances, saying that if a move isn’t "worth it, it doesn’t matter if you have more money." He also hinted that Los Angeles is unlikely to spend big this winter on a free agent starting pitcher, saying "pitchers break."

The Dodgers acquired third baseman Hanley Ramirez, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, center fielder Shane Victorino, right-handed reliever Brandon League and right-handed starters Joe Blanton and Josh Beckett in five separate trades this summer. LA’s payroll for 2013 is already projected to exceed $200 million.
