After coming within two wins of the World Series last season, the Los Angeles Dodgers decided not to mess with something promising. Most of the team's offseason moves were minor deals that bolstered the bullpen or back end of the starting rotation.

The following slides will take a look around the diamond to see what the Boys in Blue have in store for 2014, both offensively and defensively.
