Found December 15, 2012 on MLB Injury News:
After signing Zack Greinke and Ryu Hyun-jin the Los Angeles Dodgers veteran starting pitchers Aaron Harang and Chris Capuano are “even more in play,” reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Righty Zack Greinke and lefty Ryu Hyun-jin turned out to be those two starters, and now Harang and Capuano are even more in play. With the additions of Greinke and Ryu, the Dodgers now have a bevy of viable options for their starting rotation, also including Capuano, Harang, Clayton Kershaw, Josh Beckett, Chad Billingsley and Ted Lilly. For this reason there’s a chance that Los Angeles trades both Capuano and Harang to fill other areas of need this winter. Capuano posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.72 and 1.220 over 33 starts last season. Meanwhile, Harang maintained marks of 3.61 and 1.403 over 31 starts for the Dodgers in 2012. According to Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi, the Pittsburgh Pirates, Seattle Mariners, Minnesota Twins, Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians are among the teams checking in on Capuano and Harang.

Luis Cruz isn't the answer at third base, but there are few alternatives

If only Adrian Beltre was a free agent this winter... Luis Cruz was a nice story. He really was. But a "nice story" isn't good enough to be a starting third baseman in Major League Baseball. Cruz, 28, got a chance to play this season and took advantage of it. He hit .297/.322/.431 in 78 games. He had surprising pop, hitting six home runs and 20 doubles (tied...

He has been in town for fewer than four months, yet Adrian Gonzalez was greeted by a line snaked around the premises of the East Los Angeles Civic Center on Saturday. Hes handing out toys that he donated as part of the 12th Annual Winter Wonderland Holiday Celebration and East L.A. on Ice, a community gathering five miles southeast of Dodger Stadium in which all interviews but one...

Josh Hamilton, Dodgers Had Talks

Earlier today, the Anaheim Angels signed free-agent Josh Hamilton to a five-year deal, believed to be the result of the Los Angeles Dodgers aggressive moves as of late. Since new ownership has saved the Dodgers from bankruptcy, they have brought in Hanley Ramirez to play shortstop, Adrian Gonzalez to play first base, Carl Crawford to eventually play left field and Josh Beckett, Zack...

A Different Take On The Dodgers’ Spending Spree

The Dodgers are rich. Very rich. After spending $2.15 billion to buy the team, the new owners have opened the checkbook again and again and again. First, in the trade with the Red Sox that netted Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto. Next with the winning bid for Korean pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu. Then with the free-agent signings of Zack Greinke and Brandon League — and...

Where the Dodgers were on Hamilton

  Yes, the Dodgers had conversations with Josh Hamilton’s agents, Michael Moye and Scott Sanderson. But the impetus for the discussions came from the agents, not club officials, and the talks failed to progress, major-league sources say.   It’s understandable that Moye and Sanderson would want to engage the Dodgers, who under their new ownership have become the biggest spenders...
