Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he expects to return for the 2015 season, and he'd be surprised if general manager Ned Colletti doesn't stay, too. Both Mattingly and Colletti are under scrutiny after the team had the highest payroll in baseball and didn't advance past the National League Division Series. Colletti is believed to be under more pressure than Mattingly after he failed to upgrade the team's bullpen at the trade deadline this summer.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have an abundance of healthy outfielders, but general manager Ned Colletti appears unlikely to move any of these players to the minors or in a trade. "It's a situation we're going to have to deal with," he said. "But we're always going to be one injury away from not having to deal with it. It gives everybody a chance to take a breath, get a day."

The Los Angeles Dodgers may trade one of its outfielders to find extra help shoring up other key areas. Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti confirms he has had interest in all four of his outfielders (Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford). "We've got four really good outfielders and we've got to be careful. We can't sell off to sell off and in 2015 say, 'Let's go get an outfielder on the free-agent market," Colletti said. "We've checked the list. It's not overloaded with choices. There's a lack of impact outfielders available. We better be sure if we make a move that we help our club for a while."

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw said Sunday, June 16, that he was upset that reports of his contract talks leaked to the media. Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported that both sides were "making progress" on a seven-year extension that may be worth more than $180 million. Kershaw blamed the Dodgers for the leak and said they had an agreement that they weren't going to talk about negotiations while they were in progress. General manager Ned Colletti said "I don't know" when asked if the leak could hurt negotiations and decliend to comment on the report.
Fantasy Tip: Both sides should come together eventually. Maybe the Dodgers should include run support to sweeten the deal.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to have a rotation consisting of SPs Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Chad Billingsley (elbow), Hyun-Jin Ryu and Josh Beckett. As such, Ps Chris Capuano, Aaron Harang and Ted Lilly (shoulder) might be turned into long relievers if they aren't traded. With Billingsley coming off an elbow injury and Lilly back from shoulder surgery, manager Don Mattingly said he likes the team's depth. General manager Ned Colletti added that none of the pitchers have asked to be dealt.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are making efforts to reestablish their international presence but are becoming uncertain about their chances of signing their top targets from Asia. Talks with South Korean P Hyun-Jin Ryu are moving very slowly, according to general manager Ned Colletti. The Dodgers also think high school P Shohei Otani could remain in his native Japan instead of signing with a U.S. ballclub.
