MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick spoke to Dodgers GM Ned Colletti, who said talks are ongoing with Orlando Hudson’s agent. Colletti has the flexibility to sign both Hudson and Manny Ramirez. He also said he doesn’t lack confidence in Blake DeWitt despite the Hudson pursuit. Tony Jackson of the L.A. Daily News learned the same.
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports wrote yesterday that Hudson likes the Royals, but they probably do not have the payroll flexibility to sign him.
