The Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly turning their attention toward Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada after missing out on right-hander Yoan Lopez.

Mattingly: Dodgers 'More Of A Team' After Turnover

Jan 9, 2015 8:36 AM

New management has turned over half the roster and Don Mattingly says the Los Angeles Dodgers are now "more of a team."

Mattingly was consulted on every move and agrees with Stan Kasten and Andrew Friedman that the club will function better in 2015 and beyond.

"I just feel it's more of a team," he said. "The club last year won 94 games. We were a little crazy, but that's who we were. Nothing wrong with that. But I think the pieces will fit together better [in 2015]."

Rollins Would Only Have Waived No-Trade Clause For Dodgers

Jan 8, 2015 8:45 AM

Jimmy Rollins discussed his move from Philadelphia to Los Angeles on Tuesday, noting that the Dodgers were the only club he would have allowed the Phillies to trade him to this offseason.

"There was only one place I wanted to go if I left Philadelphia and that was Los Angeles -- a place that has history, a place that wants to win, and I wanted to be a part of something special and somehow have an impact on that," Rollins said. "It wasn't happening in Philly at the moment, so I'm not surprised. I'm just glad it happened."
