The Los Angeles Dodgers have checked in on multiple "fine hitters" recently, including Philadelphia Phillies shortstop and outfielder Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino, Minnesota Twins outfielder Josh Willingham, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder and third baseman Corey Hart and Aramis Ramirez, and San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com:

We all know they’ve talked to the Cubs about pitchers Ryan Dempster (a "favorite for Dempster, one rival GM said) and Matt Garza, and have even asked about Cole Hamels (they may have to wait until the winter on that one), but here goes a litany of many of the fine hitters they’ve checked in on lately: Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino, Josh Willingham, Michael Cuddyer, Corey Hart, Aramis Ramirez and Chase Headley.

Heyman notes that while the Dodgers may be expressing interest in the players listed above, the Phillies and Brewers have yet to decide to sell, and the Twins and Rockies "are showing no inclination to want to trade Willingham or Cuddyer."

He also indicates that LA has some serious competition when it comes to Headley, who’s been tied to the Cleveland Indians, Baltimore Orioles, Arizona Diamondbacks among others.
