The Los Angeles Dodgers are looking for relief help and have gone as far as to inquire with the Cincinnati Reds about Aroldis Chapman.
A number of teams have interest in Chapman, who the Reds would move for the right price.
The Dodgers already have Kenley Jansen as their closer.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have officially hired Dave Roberts as their new manager.
Roberts will be introduced at a news conference at Dodgers Stadium on Dec. 1.
USA Today reported Monday that Roberts will get a three-year contract with a fourth-year option.
Roberts, whose father is African-American and mother is Japanese, will be the first minority manager in the storied franchise's history.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to terms with two Cuban prospects -- outfielder Yusniel Diaz, 19, and second baseman Omar Estevez, 17, have received bonuses worth $15.5 and $6 million, respectively, pending physicals.
The Dodgers have not confirmed the signings.
Diaz is ranked third on MLB.com's Top 30 International Prospects list.
The Los Angeles Dodgers appear unlikely to trade Yasiel Puig this offseason.
Rumors continue to swirl that Puig may be on the move, but Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times points out that the outfielder's stock is extremely low. Puig played in just 79 games this past season, twice landing on the disabled list.
Puig is also relatively inexpensive and under control for at least four more seasons.
The Dodgers have hired former player Dave Roberts to replace Don Mattingly as the team's manager.
Although the Dodgers have decided on Roberts and he has agreed to take the job, a baseball source said the two sides had been working out the final contract details as of Sunday night.
The hiring was first reported by the Los Angeles Times.
As many as five or six teams have expressed interest in Chase Utley as a "mostly everyday infielder."
Joel Wolfe, Utley's agent, told Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News of the interest.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are interested in bringing him back.
The Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees are among the clubs that have inquired with the Cleveland Indians about their starting pitching.
The framework of the deals would send a young, controllable pitcher away in exchange for an everyday outfielder.
According to reports, Brett Gardner's name has come up in talks while Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar appear to be the most likely Cleveland pitchers on the move.
Jake Arrieta won the National League Cy Young Award on Wednesday after going 22-6 with a 1.77 ERA in 2015.
Arrieta went 14-1 with a 0.75 ERA over the final three months, the lowest second-half ERA in history for a starting pitcher (minimum 12 starts).
The right-hander got 17 first-place votes for 169 points from the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Zack Greinke drew 10 first-place votes and had 147 points. Clayton Kershaw had the other three firsts and 101 points.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will name either Gabe Kapler or Dave Roberts as their next manager, according to a report.
The decision eliminates Bud Black from consideration.
A decision is expected by the end of the week for selecting a replacement for Don Mattingly, who left last month and was hired to manage the Miami Marlins.
