Dodgers to keep SP depth?
By Jason A. Churchill
Something's got to give in Los Angeles where the Los Angeles Dodgers have eight starting pitchers with just a few days left in spring training.
A small handful of clubs were on hand Monday to see left-hander Chris Capuano, who might be the most valuable of the Dodgers' excess, and the veteran spun seven shutout innings. Whether or not GM Ned Colletti goes the trade route remains to be seen, but just in case the Pirates, Indians, Rangers and Mariners had scouts in attendance, although it may very well have been routine, or they may have been there to see someone else.
Assuming at least seven of the eight are healthy come Opening Day it seems logical for Colletti to move at least one before camp breaks over the weekend. Capuano and veteran right-hander Aaron Harang appear the most likely to go. Harang, however, struggled in his latest outing.
