Dodgers Talking Backup Deals

The Dodgers, still focused on acquiring Ryan Dempster from the Cubs, continue to hold talks to line up back-up deals if the Cubs won’t make the Dempster deal. The Dodgers are rumored to be involved with almost every starting pitcher on the trade block, from James Shields and Josh Johnson to Zach Greinke and Matt Garza. Chairman Mark Walter said Wednesday after the acquisition of Hanley Ramirez that the team wasn’t done making moves, and picking up salary is no longer a hurdle for a club that was in bankruptcy less than three months ago. The Dodgers also are looking for another bat and have been linked to Philadelphia’s Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence, among others. — Ken Gurnick
