The Dodgers can have quite a firesale if they want.
ESPN and SiriusXM’s Jim Bowden reports that the record six-year, $147 million contract committed Saturday to free agent right-hander Zack Greinke does not include a no-trade clause. Also without no-trade protection are center fielder Matt Kemp, who agreed to an eight-year, $160 million extension in November 2011, and right fielder Andre Ethier, who signed for five years and $85 million this past June.
The Dodgers are still operating with great comfort financially, so there’s no reason for them to want to ship off any of these parts. But that could of course change at some point in the future.
Greinke’s contract runs through 2018, Ethier’s goes until 2017 and Kemp is signed through 2019.
