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 SP Clayton Kershaw said Sunday, June 16, that he was upset that reports of his contract talks leaked to the media. Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that both sides were "making progress" on a seven-year extension that may be worth more than $180 million. Kershaw blamed the Dodgers for the leak and said they had an agreement that they weren't going to talk about negotiations while they were in progress. General manager Ned Colletti said "I don't know" when asked if the leak could hurt negotiations and decliend to comment on the report.
Fantasy Tip: Both sides should come together eventually. Maybe the Dodgers should include run support to sweeten the deal.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to have a rotation consisting of SPs Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Chad Billingsley (elbow), Hyun-Jin Ryu and Josh Beckett.

With Billingsley coming off an elbow injury and Lilly back from shoulder surgery, manager Don Mattingly said he likes the team's depth. General manager Ned Colletti added that none of the pitchers have asked to be dealt.

The Dodgers are looking for a No. 2 or 3 pitcher behind SP Clayton Kershaw.
