Clayton Kershaw, who extended his scoreless streak to 37 innings with eight innings of two-hit ball and led the Dodgers to a 3-1 victory over the Angels on Satruday, according to a Yahoo.com report.
Los Angeles Dodgers Wiretap
The Pirates didn't enter the final day before the trade deadline looking for a starting pitcher, but the state of A.J. Burnett's elbow quickly made them change their mind.
The Pirates acquired left-hander J.A. Happ the Mariners on Friday after Burnett complained of elbow pain and was placed on the 15-day DL with inflammation following his third straight rough outing.
Pittsburgh also picked up Michael Morse from the Dodgers, hoping Morse's proven right-handed bat will give the Pirates a platoon option at first base to complement left-handed Pedro Alvarez.
The Houston Astros, Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees are among the teams to show initial interest in David Price now that the Detroit Tigers are accepting offers.
Detroit declared themselves sellers on Wednesday afternoon.
The Tigers have leverage in talks with Johnny Cueto and Cole Hamels now off the market.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are working on a three-team deal with the Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins that would yield Mat Latos from Miami and Alex Wood, Jim Johnson and Jose Peraza from Atlanta.
It is being reported that Dodgers prospect Hector Olivera is also involved in the deal.
Los Angeles could keep Wood or flip him in a deal for David Price.
With the Texas Rangers nearly a trade for Cole Hamels, the Los Angeles Dodgers are believed to be the favorites to acquire David Price from the Detroit Tigers.
The Dodgers are also currently working on a three-team deal with the Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins involved Mat Latos.
That three-team deal may allow Los Angeles to make a bigger play for Price. They acquired young pieces from the Atlanta Braves in the deal that can be flipped to Detroit.
The trade between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Miami Marlins involving Mat Latos is being held up by paperwork.
The deal, which includes Michael Morse as well, was reported Wednesday afternoon but was not completed when the Marlins were scheduled to report to the ballpark.
Both Latos and Morse were in uniform for Miami.
The Detroit Tigers are now in sell-mode, which adds elite starter David Price to the trade market.
The Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees are among the teams that were hoping Price would become available.
In the wake of reports that Price is available, the San Francisco Giants and Houston Astros have also been linked to the left-hander.
There is expected to be a third team involved in the trade between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Miami Marlins that will send Mat Latos to California.
It was initially reported that Michael Morse was included in the deal as well, heading to the Dodgers.
However, Jayson Stark reports that a third team could be involved and will receive Morse, who doesn't appear to fit on L.A.'s roster.
The Miami Marlins have agreed to trade Mat Latos and Michael Morse to the Los Angeles Dodgers for three prospects and a competitive balance pick.
Los Angeles will take on all of Morse's salary in the deal.
As the non-waiver trade deadline approaches, the Los Angeles Dodgers have made Cole Hamels their top target, according to a report.
The Dodgers want to exhaust all possibilities in talks with the Philadelphia Phillies before they move onto a secondary target like Yovani Gallardo.
Los Angeles still insists they won't move top prospects Corey Seager and Julio Urias.
