While an Andre Ethier trade is pretty unlikely (gave it a 20 percent chance of happening in the latest episode of "Dugout Blues," and that's generous), it isn't completely out of the realm of possibility. Along with the Mariners, a team that is interested in his services is the Texas Rangers, as Mike Petirello reported. The Rangers haven't had a successful offseason, by most accounts. They lost out on Zack Greinke to the Dodgers, Josh Hamilton went to Anaheim, R.A. Dickey went north of the border in a big trade, Edwin Jackson signed with the Cubs and Mike Adams left via free agency. They've kicked the tires on Adam LaRoche and Cody Ross (who signed with the Diamondbacks on Saturday), and now have interest in Michael Bourn after signing A.J. Pierzynski. Still, the Rangers' best route to improve this winter could be via trade. That's where the Dodgers come in. From Friday's post, here's a list of the Dodgers' needs...

Mariners are the Dodgers' best match for a potential Andre Ethier trade

With the Andre Ethier kinda-sorta-but-not-really rumors floating around (depending who you believe), it might be a good time to check out which teams might be interested in him and what the Dodgers could possible look for in return. First, let's identify the Dodgers' remaining needs. Third base I recently wrote a post saying Luis Cruz isn't the answer at third...

Scott Van Slyke Clears Waivers, Assigned To Isotopes

The Dodgers have announced that Scott Van Slyke has cleared waivers and he has been outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque. All that worrying for nothing, rumors of him heading to Pittsburgh, the huge risk of losing him via waivers, and there he is safe and sound with the Isotopes. Van Slyke, 26, made his Major League debut in 2012 and hit a not-so-impressive .167 (9-for-54) in 27...

Los Angeles Dodgers Top 15 Prospects (2012-13)

The Dodgers will trot out a formidable wave of big league talent to take on the National League West in 2013 but the strength of the major league club comes at the expense of the minor league system. The organization has flipped its home-grown talent to acquire the likes of Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, and Hanley Ramirez. The new draft and international free agent rules will affect...

Q&A: Chris Reed, Dodgers Top Prospect

Chris Reed isn’t your typical top-rated prospect. Born in London, England, he has a record of just 1-9 since the Los Angeles Dodgers drafted him 16th overall in 2011. A closer in his junior year at Stanford, the 22-year-old southpaw transitioned to a starting role this season with High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga. Limited to 77 innings, Reed proceeded to make 11...

Making Moves: Ely Dealt For Rasmussen, Van Slyke Outrighted, McPherson Signed

The Dodgers have dealt John Ely to the Astros in exchange for minor-league lefty Rob Rasmussen. Rasmussen, a SoCal native and UCLA graduate, was selected by the Dodgers in the 27th round of the 2007 draft but declined to sign and instead became a Bruin. He was drafted by the Marlins in the 2nd round of the 2010 draft and acquired by Houston in 2012 as part of the Carlos Lee deal...

Mets in hot pursuit of Capuano and Harang

The Dodgers have been heavily shopping Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang ever since the Winter Meetings. Their efforts have no doubt increased after the signings of Greinke and Ryu. The New York Mets appear to be the most serious pursuer, according to Ken Davidoff. The Dodgers are highly favored to deal at least two of the Ted Lilly, Capuano, and Harang trio. I don’t anticipate...
