The Dodgers appear to be considering many of the top starting pitchers available in free agency. Not only are Zack Greinke and Hiroki Kuroda on their radar, they're also eyeing Anibal Sanchez, ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark reports (on Twitter).
The Dodgers have Clayton Kershaw, Josh Beckett, Chad Billingsley, Chris Capuano, Aaron Harang and Ted Lilly under contract for 2013. However, one of Beckett, Capuano, Harang and Lilly figures to be traded, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reported at the end of the regular season.
Sanchez, 28, ranked fourth on MLBTR's list of the offseason's top 50 free agents. Like Greinke he was traded midseason and was ineligible for a qualifying offer. This means teams won’t have to surrender a draft pick to sign Greinke or Sanchez.
