Earlier this week, Tony Jackson of ESPNLosAngeles.com reported that the Dodgers are considering the addition of a free-agent left-handed pinch-hitter. Today, Jackson told me via e-mail he has learned that there are at least three people on the Dodgers' list and one of them is Hideki Matsui.

Matsui, 37, had a .321 on-base percentage and .375 slugging percentage in 583 plate appearances with Oakland in 2011. However, he hit better against lefties (.795 OPS) then righties (.654), a presumably fluky reversal of his career trend over 1,202 games. He played 232 1/3 innings in the field this year, appearing as a designated hitter the rest of the time.
