Dodgers rumors: LA done with starting pitching market

Stephen Dunn

Eight is more than enough for the Dodgers.

After spending over $200 million to net Zack Greinke and Hyun-jin Ryu, the Los Angeles Dodgers are likely done exploring the starting pitching market, reports Buster Olney of ESPN:

There was some speculation yesterday that the Dodgers could still go after Anibal Sanchez, but apparently the club has decided that an eight-deep starting rotation is plenty strong enough. In addition to newcomers Greinke and Ryu, the Dodgers boast Clayton Kershaw, Josh Beckett, Chad Billingsley, Ted Lilly, Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang as rotation options for next season.

Of the eight starters, Capuano and Harang are the most likely to head elsewhere in a trade. The Dodgers are on the lookout for third base help, so maybe they will find a trade partner that give them help at the hot corner. Los Angeles currently has shortstop Luis Cruz and aging veteran Juan Uribe as their top options at the left corner of the infield.

The Dodgers could, of course, not actually be done on the starting pitching market if they do not feel like it. The club has proven it has an almost endless amount of money to spend, so if the right price appears LA could still pounce.
