Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

According to one GM the Dodgers are "in" on almost every part of the trade market from top starters Sale and Archer to top relievers Davis and Miller to top bats like Bruce and Cargo and will certainly be an interesting team to watch as the Monday deadline approaches.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

According to a report by Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports, the Royals are trying to package Ian Kennedy to the Dodgers in a potential Wade Davis trade. Said one MLB exec: "I don't think anyone is taking Ian Kennedy's entire contract." Kennedy is owed about $65 million through the 2020 season. It makes sense for the Royals to try, but the initial response to the idea from Davis suitors appears to be underwhelming.

Another 30-save campaign for Jansen

Kenley Jansen earned his 30th save of the year on Tuesday. It's his third straight season with at least 30 saves. Jansen joins Todd Worrell (1995 to 1997) and Eric Gagne (2002 to 2004) as the only Dodgers pitchers with at least 30 saves in three different seasons, the Elias Sports Bureau reports.

Dodgers doing just fine without Kershaw

The narrative throughout the early part of the Dodgers' season was "where would they be without Clayton Kershaw?" Well, they've answered that question by going 16-8 (tied for MLB-best) since his last start on June 26.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen was far from satisfied after recording his 30th save. Jansen gave up a hit and hit a batter before getting the last out, and said he was as unsatisfied as if he blew the save.

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw still is not throwing after a setback with his back injury saying, "I'm trying to make it back to have an impact on this season for our team." Kershaw said he realizes how much he loves the game of baseball and has come to some realizations while he has been away.

Small chance Dodgers trade Julio Urias

Urias is currently back in the minors, but we saw enough from him to know he'll be a key part of the 2017 rotation. The Dodgers are still loaded with prospects if they want to make a big deal, writes David Schoenfield. Untouchable players for all 30 teams
