Dodgers, Adam Kennedy Close To Deal

The Dodgers are close to an agreement with free-agent infielder Adam Kennedy, according to multiple reports.

Kennedy, who can play first, second and third, satisfies L.A.'s need for a utility infielder and leaves just one major item on their offseason shopping list -- a starting pitcher.

He would serve as the primary backup in an infield that usually will feature James Loney at first, Mark Ellis at second, Juan Uribe at third and Dee Gordon at short.

Source: Larry King Joins Group To Buy Dodgers

King, a legendary talk-show host, is a longtime Dodgers season-ticket holder.

He has been a frequent visitor to the team during spring training and occasionally on road trips.

King's financial stake in the ownership group is comparatively small, according to the source.
