Speculation remains the currency of choice among the beat reporters, it seems.
Dodgers meet with Maeda, says MLB.
The Dodgers met with Japanese free-agent pitcher Kenta Maeda on Thursday, according to several Japanese media outlets.
The Dodgers are believed to prefer a trade for Miami ace Jose Fernandez or Tampa Bay fourth starter Jake Odorizzi, but don’t want to deal such top prospects as Corey Seager or Julio Urias to do it.
They also reportedly have some interest in Scott Kazmir, one of the few remaining free agents who could crack their rotation.
