Dodgers Rumors: If Not Zack Greinke, Then What?

If the Los Angeles Dodgers miss out on right-hander Zack Greinke, their plan B would be to move on to other free agents, including Anibal Sanchez or Kyle Lohse, or look to trade for a starter, such as New York Mets right-hander R.A. Dickey, reports Jim Bowden of ESPN.

While the Dodgers entered the offseason considered the favorite to sign Greinke, the Texas Rangers have slowly gained ground and perhaps have even taken over the lead in the chase for the right-hander. It’s been reported that Los Angeles has become pessimistic regarding their chances of landing Greinke, as they believe if he wanted to sign with them he would have done so by now.

Beyond Greinke, the Dodgers have been tied to several other free agent arms, including Sanchez and Lohse. Both are not in the same category as Greinke, considered by some to be a No. 1 starter, but they are certainly capable and did post promising campaigns in 2012.

The Dodgers could also decide to get creative and swing trades for pitchers thought to be available this winter, including Dickey and Tampa Bay Rays right-hander James Shields.
