NL West Notes: Dodgers could move Jose De Leon, Rockies add Mike Dunn

The latest from around the National League West.

The Dodgers have been linked to Brian Dozier this offseason and are open to including top pitching prospect Jose De Leon in a deal for Minnesota’s second baseman, according to Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan.

It’s unlikely the Dodgers are the only team interested in Dozier, who would add a right-handed presence that Los Angeles’ lineup lacked last season. The Twins are fond of Dodgers prospect Cody Bellinger, according to FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman, but a package featuring De Leon and Bellinger might not be realistic.

Here’s more from around the National League West:

  • If Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey didn’t sign extensions, they would have been free agents this winter. Think about that for a minute.

  • The Padres have added several top-level arms to their minor league system this winter. Eventually, it should pay off.

  • Though the Diamondbacks could explore upgrades, they really just need AJ Pollock and David Peralta to be healthy next season.

  • Colorado signed Mike Dunn, who had success pitching in Miami, to a three-year deal.
