More Dodgers pitching speculation
Ever since the deep-pocketed Guggenheim Partners bought the Dodgers, they’ve been linked with trading for just about every marquee name imaginable. Now Fox Sports speculates that the Dodgers are interested in Phillies lefty Cole Hamels, who would come with nearly $100 million left on his contract.
The club, however, has given no indication it wants to pick up that kind of contract and trade away any of its top three prospects — Joc Pederson, Corey Seager and Julio Urias — with a deal for an elite pitcher likely to cost at least two of them.
The Dodgers will continue to be linked with Hamels, David Price and Jon Lester as Thursday’s non-waiver trade deadline approaches.
