While their "agenda depends on" Chicago Cubs right-hander Ryan Dempster, the Los Angeles Dodgers are still in the market for another bat and have fallback options if a deal with Dempster isn’t completed, according to Jayson Stark of ESPN:
The Dodgers continue to shop for another bat, in the outfield or at first base. If they can’t get a trade for Victorino completed, they could turn to someone like Justin Morneau or Shin-Soo Choo, or even Alfonso Soriano.
Stark adds that if the Dodgers aren’t able to complete a trade for Dempster, they’ve explored a variety of other rotation options, including Miami Marlins right-hander Josh Johnson, Tampa Bay Rays right-hander James Shields, Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Joe Blanton and Colorado Rockies right-hander Kevin Milwood.
What other moves, if any, will the Dodgers make this summer?
