The Dodgers have their sights set at the top of the free-agent market and are looking at starting pitchers Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg, as well as third baseman Anthony Rendon, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
Dodgers are looking at Gerrit Cole, Stephen Strasburg and Anthony Rendon. But while they can afford to go big, word is they have set valuations for each star and intend to remain disciplined.

However, Heyman said the team has set valuations for each player and they intend to remain disciplined. This should come as no surprise because that’s basically how every team works.
While that may be discouraging to fans, it is likely the Dodgers value all of them highly, so that wouldn’t take them out of the market. It has already been reported the Dodgers love Rendon and Cole more than any other free-agent during the Friedman era.
That love of Cole and Rendon is rightly warranted. Both are among the best players in the game and would fill a need on the roster. They both fit this team so perfectly, you can debate to sign Cole…
