MLB Dodgers Rumors: Starting Pitchers
There is a whirlwind of rumors today surrounding the Los Angeles Dodgers starting rotation.
The Dodgers deal with free agent starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma seems to have hit a snag due to Iwakuma’s physical. The Dodgers may be moving on as reported by the Jiji Press.
The Dodgers are also said to be in on free agent starting pitchers Mike Leake and Scott Kazmir, as reported by Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
In addition to Leake, #Dodgers also on Kazmir, sources say. Told yesterday – even before Iwakuma news – they are not ruling out anyone.

The Iwakuma deal falling through would obviously make either of these moves more likely.
Finally, the Dodgers are in talks with the Tampa Bay Rays about Jake Odorizzi, as reported by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

The Dodgers have stockpiled prospects in recent trades which would make this kind of move easier.
