07:28 AM ET 01.09 | Not only is Los Angeles in the running for Masahiro Tanaka, but there's more positive news. The Dodgers continue to receive favorable medical reports on outfielders Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, shortstop Hanley Ramirez and starting pitcher Josh Beckett. General manager Ned Colletti said on Wednesday he expects each player to be ready for Spring Training. Kemp, who is starting to hit after undergoing offseason surgery on his left ankle and left shoulder, has been out of a walking boot for at least three weeks, Colletti said. ... Colletti said both Ethier and Ramirez have not had any setbacks this winter. Ethier was limited in the postseason by a microfracture in his lower left leg, but the outfielder has resumed running. Ramirez battled through a fractured rib during the National League Championship Series.

In related news, Matt Kemp gave his sweaty jock and socks to a startled fan who was suffering from a really bad hangnail.

Good news for the Dodgers. It is hard to move bad contracts and injury prone players. Ya got to strike while that iron is hot, that four week span where a guy can play.

The Dodger's injury report sounds more like that of an NFL team.
