Rumor Mill: Dodgers have Parnell on the trade radar??


According to John Heyman of CBS Sports,  sources suggest the Dodgers are considering a variety of relievers, and could also make a play for either Indians closer Chris Perez or Mets reliever Bobby Parnell instead of  Pirates Closer Hanrahan (Red Sox also have interest).

The Pirates are willing to consider trading Hanrahan, as they have re-signed Jason Grilli, who could close. The bullpen has been a Pirates strength in recent years.


The Dodgers would prefer a left-hander, but many of their best choices appear to be right-handers -- including Hanrahan, Perez and Parnell.

OF Andre Ethier has been mentioned on the block. Can the Mets pull of a deal with the Dodgers??? Is he a right handed hitting power hitter?  No, but it is a power threat and he is in the prime of his career..
