Dodgers Interested In Jarrod Washburn

SATURDAY: Ben Bolch of the L.A. Times spoke to Washburn, who had positive comments regarding the Dodgers and their stadium.

SUNDAY: MLB.com's Ken Gurnick suggests Dodgers GM Ned Colletti is eyeing Mariners starter Jarrod Washburn, saying the lefty is "rumored on his radar."  Gurnick says Colletti left this weekend to scout his own prospects, perhaps to gather information for future deals.

Washburn, 35 in August, has a sparkling 3.24 ERA in 13 starts this year.  His strikeout rate is up a touch, but his peripheral stats are mostly near his normal level.  So it appears to be a possible sell-high opportunity for Seattle.  On the other hand, the Mariners are only 2.5 games out in the AL West.  Washburn has about $5.9MM left on his contract, as well as no-trade protection.
