Dodgers News: Los Angeles Interested In Yoan Moncada, Hector Olivera, Not James Shields, Per Report

The Los Angeles Dodgers have their eyes on the international market with just under two weeks until pitchers and catchers report, preferring to focus on prospects like Yoan Moncada and/or Hector Olivera instead of investing coinage in someone like free agent righty James Shields, according to legendary baseball reporter Peter Gammons:

Los Angeles' NL West rivals, the San Diego Padres, have reportedly extended the 33-year-old Shields a four-year offer with upwards of $18 million per year, per Jon Morosi of FOX Sports:

Regardless, it's probably safe to count the Dodgers out on Shields regardless of how things shake out, as the team puts its efforts into securing the rights of either Olivera or Moncada in the face of plenty of competition.
