INDIAN WELLS The Dodgers are probably unlikely to trade for a starting pitcher this winter and might have to address that need in the free-agent market, General Manager Ned Colletti said. Collettis assessment was based on conversations he had with other teams at the general managers meetings, which started Wednesday. Asked about what hes learned in the last 24 hours about the market for pitching, Colletti said, Ive done a little more trade-wise, whats possible or impossible -- more impossible than possible. The Dodgers are looking to add a No. 2 or 3 pitcher to compliment ace Clayton Kershaw. Of the pitching market in general, Colletti said, Its not massive. Its probably unlikely trade-wise. There are probably three or four different pitchers we have interest in. Well see. Its still fairly early in the process. But pitching is most of our concentration right now. The Dodgers are believed to be interested in free agent pitchers Zack Greinke, Hiroki Kuroda and Anibal Sanchez. Colletti said the free-agent market for pitching could be slow to develop. As always if youre willing to make a quick strike and pay a premium, it gets done fast, he said. But in most cases, theyve waited a long time for this opportunity so theyre going to play it in a patient way. -Dylan Hernandez
