Dodgers Consider Alternative Package For Roy Halladay

How do the Dodgers counteract the Phillies recent addition of Cliff Lee?

How about adding Roy Halladay? According to Ken Rosenthal and John Paul Morosi of, the Dodgers may be able to catch the attention of the Blue Jays by putting together a large package of minor league players.

The Dodgers have made it clear they don't want to part with any players from their major league roster, and maybe now they've found an alternative. However, I'm not sure how enticing the idea of emptying their minor league system is either.

Rosenthal and Morosi note that the Dodgers may be putting together a package that includes third baseman Josh Bell, shortstop Devaris Gordon and hard-throwing pitching prospects from among the group of Josh Lindblom, Ethan Martin and Nathan Eovaldi.

The duo says that while the Dodgers would probably prefer not to part with Bell and Gordon, the team does have depth at both positions, which may allow them the ability to pull off this deal.

To give you a better idea of this package, consider this, excluding Eovaldi every other player is ranked within the teams' top 10 prospects, according to John Sickels of Minor League Ball.

Difficult to imagine the Dodgers giving up potentially four or five of their best prospects, but if they want Halladay, that's going to be the price.
