9:28pm: Rosenthal says Maddux’s salary may pose a problem – the Dodgers don’t want to take it on while the Padres want to shed it. He’s still owed about $3.3MM.
5:28pm: The Dodgers have their eye on Greg Maddux as well, according to Buster Olney. Names are being exchanged.
3:43pm: From Ken Davidoff of Newsday:
The Indians are likely to trade starting pitcher Paul Byrd, with the Dodgers among the reported suitors.
The interest is surprising; the Dodgers were not thought to be after starting pitching. Byrd has about $2.7MM left on his contract and carries a 4.93 ERA in 20 starts.
