Rumor Mill: Dodgers Expected to sign Greinke, Deal being delayed by other possible deals


According to Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers are expected to keep on spending this off-season, beginning with Zack Greinke.

The Dodgers, also could add arguably the second-most attractive free-agent pitcher, righty Anibal Sanchez, in a dual investment that could approach $250 million.

At the moment, the Dodgers also are negotiating with another starter, Korean lefty Ryu Hyun-Jin. The deadline to sign him is Sunday. If the Dodgers fail to complete a deal, they will not pay a $25.7 million posting fee to his Korean team.

That would be $25.7 million more for the Dodgers to redirect to free-agent starters, or perhaps an expensive pitcher whom they might acquire in a trade.

The Dodgers, sources say, have talked to the Mets about NL Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey.

As many insiders have said, once the Greinke signing is official the Mets may find themselves in the driver seat for a compatible Dickey trade that will fill their needs...
