Dodgers Interested In Maddux, Byrd

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.
