The Dodgers stressed leading up to and throughout the Winter Meetings that they didn't feel pressured to trade from their surplus in Vegas, and it held true. They would love to free up payroll by finding a taker for Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp, but it doesn't sound like there's much interest there unless they take on some salary in return. For Kemp, it's expected. For Puig, not ideal. Still expect them to trade at least one outfielder and one starting pitcher at some point. Bryce Harper badly wants to be a Dodger, but he'll have to sacrifice years — and thus, total value — to play in Los Angeles.

The Dodgers, unsurprisingly, have been aggressive in pushing their outfielders, specifically Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig, who would free up money, but don't feel pressure to get something done at the Winter Meetings. Said Dave Roberts: "It's a luxury when you're in a situation where you have a lot of good players already on your 40-man roster that you don't need to chase a certain player, overpay."

Some Dodgers tidbits from today: the team is comfortable with a combination of Kiké Hernandez, Chris Taylor and Max Muncy at 2B; Kenta Maeda comes in as a starter and Julio Urias will have an innings limit; the goal, Dave Roberts said, is for Cody Bellinger to get back to being an everyday player.

Chase Utley, recently retired, is here with the Dodgers in Vegas, but has not officially been hired to the front office. Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said Utley, LA based, is "really curious" and the team is "optimistic we'll figure it out."

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he is "very hopeful" that Clayton Kershaw can regain some velocity after sitting in the low 90s this past season. Kershaw is determined to this winter.

The Dodgers could be the biggest wild card in Las Vegas

Los Angeles has both the funds and the organizational depth to land a high-end arm and also go after a big-name free agent like Bryce Harper. How active will the Dodgers be in Vegas?

Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman will not hire a general manager to replace Farhan Zaidi this offseason, but he did hire Jeff Kingston as vice president and assistant GM. Kingston previously held the same title with the Mariners for nine years and oversaw the club's analytics department during that time.

Paul Goldschmidt has played basically a full season against the Dodgers. He's a .302/.376/.551 hitter in 562 career plate appearances against them, with 31 home runs and 98 RBIs. Now, with Goldschmidt reportedly going from the D-backs to the Cardinals, Dodgers will see him 12 fewer times in 2019.
