According to David Vassegh of AM 570 Sports, the Dodgers have had serious talks with the Pittsburgh Pirates about one closer named Mark Melancon. The 31-year-old pitcher had an overall record of 2-2 with 47 saves while playing with the Washington Nationals and Pirates.
Melancon was traded to the Nationals but the Dodgers had talks with the Pirates during the trade deadline. This could be a possibility that the Dodgers will still be interested.
#Dodgers did have serious talks with Pirates for Mark Melancon at trade deadline. Could be indication he could be a target in FA.

The Giants better watch their backs as the Dodgers are trying to enhance their bullpen for next season.
Do you think the Dodgers should still pursue Mark Melancon?
