The Los Angeles Dodgers are considering whether to pursue free-agent 3B Scott Rolen (Reds), according to a person familiar with the team's plans. However, the Dodgers have yet to reach out to him to gauge his interest. Rolen prefers to play close to his home in Indiana. Rolen has yet to tell the Cincinnati Reds if he wants to return for another season. Los Angeles is unlikely to be able to promise much playing time for Rolen, though, with 3B Luis Cruz slated to open the year as the starting third baseman. Cruz hit just .173 in 19 games in winter ball this year.
