Dodgers Trade Rumors
Rumors that the Dodgers are trying to trade young shortstop Chin-lung Hu have are untrue, according to baseball sources. The Dodgers feel they need Hu for insurance if starting shortstop Rafael Furcal has an extended absence.
However, there are indications that the Dodgers would move left-handed starting pitcher Eric Stults or outfielder Jason Repko. Stults, currently competing for the fifth starter job, is out of options. Repko has little chance of reaching the Major Leagues with the Dodgers, who have added reserve outfielders Reed Johnson and Garret Anderson. The Dodgers also believe that Xavier Paul has passed Repko on the outfield depth chart. — Ken Gurnick
