The Dodgers aren’t done yet folks. Ned Colletti is still working around the clock to find a starting pitcher for the final weeks of the season. Though a third of the Dodgers roster has been acquired via trade over the last few weeks, the Dodgers aren’t done shopping yet, tweets Ken Rosenthal. However, no trade appears to be imminent. Rosenthal adds that he doesn’t think the Dodgers are going to be able to acquire the impact pitcher they are in search of. The Dodgers have already acquired two starters via trade this summer, adding Josh Beckett, and Joe Blanton. The rotation currently consists of Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley (currently on 15-day DL), Ted Lilly (expected back from DL within a week), Chris Capuano, and Aaron Harang. Colletti must complete a deal by Friday to enable the new player postseason eligibility. The Dodgers could trade for a starter in September, but he would not be eligible for the postseason should the Dodgers qualify. This of course makes no sense because that’s the sole purpose of an acquisition at this point. There are no known pitchers that have cleared waivers at this point. However, that doesn’t mean anything as I am sure you know. Today we heard that Justin Vargas and Kevin Millwood had been placed on waivers, no word if either has been claimed by the Dodgers yet. My guess is it would be difficult to find an upgrade on the market right now, so I would be surprised to see any trades get done in the next day or so. Here are some players who could potentially be available on waivers right now; Ubaldo Jimenez, Mark Buehrle, Josh Johnson, James Shields, Yovani Gallardo, Shaun Marcum, and Carlos Zambrano. Any pitcher mentioned you would want to see in the rotation? Related Posts:
