Dodgers Pursuing Padilla

Initially the Dodgers were lukewarm about signing soon-to-be free agent Vicente Padilla. But with Hiroki Kuroda suffering from a concussion and likely to go on the disabled list, the Dodgers now are in pursuit of the right-handed Padilla, who will be cut loose by the Texas Rangers later Wednesday.  The 31-year-old Padilla went 8-6 with a 4.92 ERA for Texas and likely would need a Minor League start or two before pitching for the Dodgers. He last started Aug. 5. The Rangers are on the hook for the remainder of his $12 million and the Dodgers would be responsible for around $100,000. — Ken Gurnick

    For whom the bell tolls? It tolls for thee, Jason Schmidt. Alas, we hardly knew ye…I guess a “bad teammate” is better than a non-teammate.
