The Los Angeles Dodgers have been mentioned in a number of possible trade scenarios over the past few weeks. But with a little more than 24 hours left before tomorrow’s 4 p.m. ET, non-waiver MLB trade deadline, Los Angeles is still looking for a starting pitcher to fill out there rotation.

The Dodgers made a big splash last week when they acquired former All-Star Hanley Ramirez from the Miami Marlins. That moved has paid immediate dividends with Ramirez going 7-for-21 with a home run, six RBI and five runs scored through his first five games with L.A.

That added production helped lead the Dodgers to a three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants over the weekend, leaving the team in a tie for first place in the NL West.

But here are five alternatives that could still greatly improve the Dodgers’ starting rotation.
