The Los Angeles Dodgers may trade one of its outfielders to find extra help shoring up other key areas. Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti confirms he has had interest in all four of his outfielders (Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford). "We've got four really good outfielders and we've got to be careful. We can't sell off to sell off and in 2015 say, 'Let's go get an outfielder on the free-agent market," Colletti said. "We've checked the list. It's not overloaded with choices. There's a lack of impact outfielders available. We better be sure if we make a move that we help our club for a while."

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (ribs) and OF Andre Ethier (ankle) will be game-time decisions for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series Monday, Oct. 14. X-rays on Ramirez's ribs came back negative, but he has undergone a CT scan and the results are not available yet. "Even if it's cracked or something I'm going to be out there," Ramirez said. "We're just working on taking the pain away so I can go. It's uncomfortable. It's never happened before to me. It's an uncomfortable injury, but I'm going to try to deal with it." Ramirez was told the only way he could make the injury worse is if he gets hit there again. The staff could sew a pad into his short to protect his rib cage and give him pain medication to help him get through the game.
