Here’s a quick update on some rumors from Dodgertown. Jayson Stark says the Dodgers are not actively dangling right fielder Andre Ethier. Don’t buy it. The Dodgers are shopping him and he stands as the most probable player to get traded in my opinion. I see him going to Boston for two reasons. The Red Sox owe us a favor after last summer, with Boston having the monetary resources to acquire Ethier, it’s a perfect fit. Plus, he can play with lifelong best friend Dustin Pedroia. The Dodgers are in hot pursuit of both Matt Garza and Ricky Nolasco. Nolasco is the Dodgers top priority as of this afternoon, but what is not clear is if the Dodgers are looking to acquire both pitchers. I wouldn’t be surprised considering both Chad Billingsley and Josh Beckett are out for the season. Speaking of Nolasco, the Dodgers have been all over the Nolasco talks today. Talks of a Nolasco and Steve Cishek package going to Los Angeles are flooding the rumor mill this afternoon. The Dodgers are considering themselves buyers once again, despite being eight games out of first place. The Dodgers are actively looking for starting pitching, solid late inning reliever, and someone that can play third base and remain under team control for several years. Guess an encore to last summer is looking rather probable at this point. Expect the Dodgers to check in on Aramis Ramirez. He’s being heavily shopped by Milwaukee and the Dodgers have been in love with him for years. Not my first pick, but I don’t call the shots. Jonathan Papelbon is also being linked to the Dodgers. Check back for more later tonight.
