Los Angeles Dodgers
San Diego Padres
Here are a few notes from around the League as we await Game 3 in Detroit.
-The Dodgers are interested in retaining their free agent bullpen arms, Randy Choate, Jamey Wright and Brandon League. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times notes that GM Ned Colletti is “encouraged” thus far with the negotiations with League.
-The Padres announced (via San Diego Union-Tribune) that Dustin Moseley and Tim Stauffer have cleared outright waivers and have elected to become free agents. Both pitchers enjoyed sub 4 ERAs in 2011 before suffering season ending injuries early in ‘12.
-The Nationals and soon to be free agent Adam LaRoche have made “some progress” on a new deal, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports.
-Manny Corpas who was outrighted by the Cubs days ago, has elected free agency, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports. Corpas made 48 relief appearances while posting a 5.01 ERA, but posted a career low 5.4 k/9.

Carl Crawford had it made after signing a seven-year, $142 million deal with the Red Sox in 2011. The former All-Star would be Boston's left fielder until close to the end of the decade, providing power and speed in a lineup that also boasted Jacoby Ellsbury, Adrian Gonzalez, David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia. But after a poor 2011, and a 2012 that never saw Ellsbury, Gonzalez,...

Both were on the 60-day disabled list at the time of Friday's move.
Stauffer made only one start, on opening day, before experiencing trouble with his right elbow. He had surgery to repair tendon damage in his pitching elbow on Aug. 31.
The Washington Nationals made their first post season appearance and now the team is looking to lock up a key piece of the team. First basemen Adam LaRoche has a $10 million mutual option that the club could pick up for 2013 but both parties are said to be looking towards a long-term deal.
I don’t know what stage you would say it is,” LaRoche said. “There’s nothing definitive...
