Dodgers Focused on Kuroda Deal
The Dodgers continue trade talks with a small number of clubs for pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, while interest in infielders Rafael Furcal and Jamey Carroll apparently has cooled.
Kuroda has a complete no-trade clause, but has given indications he will waive it for the right situation. The Dodgers had been talking to five clubs — Yankees, Red Sox, Indians, Tigers and Rangers — but apparently that list has been whittled down to two or three.
Deals involving infielders Furcal or Carroll are less likely because the Dodgers have not been offered enough in return. Among their needs are a catcher and power hitter. — Ken Gurnick
