Dodgers News & Rumors: Dodgers Might Move Crawford, Kemp, Or Ethier

The Los Angeles Dodgers will be busy this off-season trying to improve the ball club with some free-agent acquisitions, but they might be looking to deal some players as well. Entering the 2014 season, the Dodgers will have four capable and hopefully fully healthy outfielders, three in which the Dodgers have stated are available via trade for the right price.

Early this morning, Ken Rosenthal of reported that Carl Crawford, Matt Kemp, and Andre Ethier are all available to be traded this off-season:

That possibility, in fact, already is in the works; the Dodgers, according to major-league sources, are listening on Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford, telling prospective suitors, “If you’re interested in one of them, make us an offer.”

Out of all three, Ethier seems the more likely option to trade, simply because he has less years and money owed. However, the Dodgers could keep all four outfielders, especially since injuries have derailed all three players in the last couple of seasons. Having all four will create a security blanket for Don Mattingly if one of them suffers an injury and unless a team offers a deal the Dodgers would seriously benefit from, then it’s hard to imagine not having all four outfielders at the start of the season.
