Dodgers Rumors: LA Mulling Run at Scott Rolen

The Los Angeles Dodgers have been mulling whether or not to make a run at free agent third baseman Scott Rolen in an effort to strengthen the left side of their infield, according to Bill Shaikin of The Los Angeles Times.

The Dodgers have had internal discussions about whether to pursue third baseman Scott Rolen, according to a person familiar with the team's thinking.

The Dodgers have not yet reached out to Rolen to gauge his interest in joining the team. It’s previously been reported that the veteran would prefer to sign with a team that is close to his Indiana home.

Rolen has spent the past few seasons with the Cincinnati Reds. He’s currently a free agent, but he hasn’t yet decided if he’s going to retire or return for another year.

LA currently plans on entering the spring with Hanley Ramirez and Luis Cruz as their everyday players at shortstop and third base, though Shaikin notes the team continues to explore potential depth signings at both positions. With many free agents remaining unsigned, Shaikin says the Dodgers continue to sift through the pile to see which players may help their team next season.

  1. Keep Cruz! At times last year he was the best player LA had.

    1. Rolen's injury history is concerning if the Dodgers are thinking about replacing anyone in their infield.
