Report: Dodgers free-agent pitching targets include Anibal Sanchez
The Dodgers are among MLB teams mentioned to be in the market for free-agent starting pitchers. ESPN’s Jayson Stark reports via Twitter that the Dodgers may take a run at not only Zack Greinke and Hiroki Kuroda, but also Anibal Sanchez.
Sanchez and Greinke bring added value by not burdening suitors with a qualifying offer that will cost a draft pick upon signing.
The Tigers are expected to try to keep Sanchez in their rotation, and the Yankees and Red Sox could make a run at the righthander.
The Dodgers want to add to a rotation anchored by 2012 Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw and Chad Billingsley, and could go the trade route with any of their others starters such as Josh Beckett, Chris Capuano, Aaron Harang and Ted Lilly.
