Looper on Dodgers Radar

In addition to Joel Pineiro, Vicente Padilla and Jon Garland, add Braden Looper to the list of veteran free-agent pitchers on the Dodgers radar as they search for an innings-eating fourth starter. Looper was on the Dodgers’ shopping list a year ago, but the Dodgers signed Randy Wolf for a $5 million base and Looper signed with Milwaukee for $4.75 million. Looper then went 14-7 with a 5.22 ERA for the Brewers in 2009, pitching 194 2/3 innings. He has won in double figures each of his three seasons as a starter. – Ken Gurnick
