The Dodgers have officially re-signed Justin Turner, thus giving an anti-climactic (or totally thrilling, depending on who you root for) destination for two of the most sought after free agents this offseason.

Even with Turner and Jansen both back in Dodgers uniforms for the long haul, the Dodgers are still magically under their salary cap for 2017. They’re also going to be nearly unstoppable for the next few years, so yikes.
Here’s what else is going on around the National League West:
The hot stove is still firing full throttle! There’s still a chance that the Colorado Rockies can acquire starting pitcher Jose Quintana.
Arizona has acquired four minor leaguers to give their farm systems a little more depth (and hope). They’ve also agreed to terms with RHP Fernando Rodney.
Speaking of minor league action, the Giants have re-signed pitcher Matt Reynolds. He’s a left handed reliever. This is exciting news, you guys.
The Padres acquired catcher Luis Torrens via a trade with the Reds after the Rule 5 Draft.
The Dodgers will be picking 23rd in the 2017 first year draft. So what does that mean exactly?
