The Los Angeles Dodgers are chasing free agent right fielder Torii Hunter, USA Today Sports has reported, citing a high-ranking Dodgers official who spoke on condition of anonymity because of continuing negotiations.
Hunter spent the past five seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, hitting .313 with 16 home runs and 92 RBIs this past season. The Dodgers already have right fielders Andre Ethier and Scott Van Slyke on the roster.
According to USA Today, Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti would not comment on whether Ethier -- a two-time All-Star who signed a five-year, $85 million contract extension in June -- was being made available. Colletti said he did not have any trade discussions this week at the GMs meetings in Indian Wells, Calif., the newspaper reported.
Colletti told the newspaper he would not discuss any free agents, including Hunter.
