The Dodgers have a Cy Young Award winner in their rotation, but they’re looking to round it out with some more moderate talent. Specifically, as Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports, they are wanting to sign either (a) Hiroki Kuroda; Aaron Harang; Chris Capuano; or Jeff Francis.
None of them — with the arguable exception of Kuroda — are near the top tier of available pitching at the moment. But that’s kind of what the Dodgers have to look at, considering that they don’t have a ton to spend at the moment.
Funny thing about pitching in the offseason, though, is that a guy who last September looked like hamburger looks way more like steak over the winter. Even the guys who aren’t top-tier get snapped up just like everyone else, so there will be competition for all of these arms.
