Ranking the 5 Best Pitching Options for the Dodgers to Overhaul 2013 Rotation

Zack Greinke will be the top free-agent pitcher available.

The Los Angeles Dodgers starting rotation could be in rough shape going into next season.

Clayton Kershaw faces the possibility of undergoing surgery to repair an impingement in his right hip. Such a procedure is expected to keep him out until the middle of next May

Other Dodgers pitchers could go under the knife as well. Chad Billingsley may also require surgery on his injured right elbow. If he needs Tommy John surgery, he will miss all of next season. Ted Lilly is expected to be ready for spring training after having arthroscopic surgery performed on his left shoulder. But at 36 years old, recovery might take longer for him than projected. 

As Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal writes, the Dodgers need starting pitching next season and will likely make it an offseason priority. There are several arms the team could pursue in free agency, but one name stands out above all the others. Other quality starting pitchers will also be available on the trade market. 

Here are five pitchers the Dodgers could chase during the offseason, ranked in order of talent and likelihood of acquisition.
