MLB Trade Rumors: Payroll Slashing Moves the Dodgers May Be Forced to Make
With the Dodgers on going ownership and payroll issues, it is almost certain that the team will not be able to come up with the $30 million that is owed on June 30th, unless the MLB's investigation wraps up before then.
That could mean cost-cutting moves are on the way, and the Dodger have a number of pitchers making big money that could be interesting trade pieces.
Hiroki Kuroda ($12 million), Ted Lilly ($8.2 million), and Jon Garland ($5 million) could all be dealt for rock bottom prices as the Dodgers try to save money, and they may end up having to take a low-level prospect and eat some of the salary just for the opportunity of payroll relief.
Moving Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, and/or Chad Billingsley seems out of the question at this point, even in these desperate times, but they could move any or all of those three pitchers soon.
