The Los Angeles Dodgers are unlikely at this point to trade any of their coveted top prospects for a potential rental such as Boston Red Sox ace Jon Lester.
However, according to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, that doesn't mean that the Dodgers are unwilling to trade a coveted farm hand such as super-prospect Joc Pederson if the right deal presents itself:

With Lester presumably off the table, it is possible that the Dodgers could be renewing their focus on Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher David Price. Price's contract goes through 2015, giving the Dodgers a potential extra year of control (and potentially, an extra year to convince him to stay).
Reports are currently conflicting over whether or not the Rays are truly willing to deal Price. Yet, after gaining no ground in the AL East during their current 10-2 stretch, it is very possible they could pull the trigger if Pederson or any of the other two celebrated Dodgers prospects are dangled in negotiations.
