Interest in Cleveland Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo is ramping up, as Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports reports the Los Angeles Dodgers are now in play for the outfielder.

The Dodgers join a growing number of teams interested in Choo that includes the Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates. The Texas Rangers were tied to Choo yesterday, but that is now "not happening".

The Indians are not set on trading the corner outfielder, so Choo's asking price is high. The Tribe are looking for a major leaguer with less than three years of service time in return for Choo.

Rebounding from a disappointing and injury-plagued 2011, the 30-year-old Choo is hitting .291/.371/.484 with 32 doubles and 12 home runs on the year, and will not be a free agent until the 2014 season.
