Dodgers Rumors: Zack Greinke, Anibal Sanchez, Edwin Jackson

Since the Los Angeles Dodgers are trying to win sooner rather than later, the club will not depend on prospects entering next spring. This leaves LA with one choice, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, spend money to plug holes in their starting rotation.

The Dodgers won’t rely on prospects next season, not when they’re trying to win sooner rather than later. Their only choice is to spend and spend some more, particularly if they continue to spring holes in their rotation.

While this winter’s free agent pitching market isn’t overwhelming, Rosenthal points to three players the Dodgers could pursue; Zack Greinke, Anibal Sanchez and Edwin Jackson.

Rosenthal does note that former Dodger Hiroki Kuroda and current Ranger Ryan Dempster, who LA targeted this summer, will be available. But he doesn’t get the sense that the team will be interested in aging veterans.

Beyond these free agent options, Rosenthal adds LA could look to acquire another expensive starter, ala Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee. With no spending limit in sight, he believes there will be multiple options for the Dodgers this offseason.
