With Billingsley Hurt, Dodgers Eyeing Peavy?

Chad Billingsley slipped on ice, fell, and broke his leg according to Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times, spreading the Dodgers rotation thin as it stands.

"How this will affect the Dodgers' maneuverings in the free-agent and trade markets, if at all, is... uncertain. General Manager Ned Colletti was unavailable for comment Saturday night. With [Derek] Lowe and [Brad] Penny expected to sign elsewhere and Greg Maddux likely to retire, the Dodgers' rotation at this point consists of only Billingsley, Hiroki Kuroda and 20-year-old Clayton Kershaw."

Hernandez reports the Dodgers are saying he'll be ready for spring training. Buster Olney thinks that's what you say when you might suddenly be re-interested in front-end rotation depth, namely Jake Peavy.

The Dodgers had previously lost interest when Kevin Towers asked for a package including Billingsley.
