The Dodgers, unsurprisingly, have been aggressive in pushing their outfielders, specifically Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig, who would free up money, but don't feel pressure to get something done at the Winter Meetings. Said Dave Roberts: "It's a luxury when you're in a situation where you have a lot of good players already on your 40-man roster that you don't need to chase a certain player, overpay."

Some Dodgers tidbits from today: the team is comfortable with a combination of Kiké Hernandez, Chris Taylor and Max Muncy at 2B; Kenta Maeda comes in as a starter and Julio Urias will have an innings limit; the goal, Dave Roberts said, is for Cody Bellinger to get back to being an everyday player.
