Buzz: Dodgers in the market for Vazquez?

ESPN’s Buster Olney writes in a recent blog that the Dodgers could be a potential suitor for Atlanta pitcher Javier Vazquez.

Vazquez is a player who makes perfect sense for the Dodgers, who will be looking to add starting pitching at the deadline. He’s having a good year – a 3.05 ERA with a 3-5 record – and the financial cost isn’t prohibitive. Vazquez is under contract for $11.5 million in 2009 and $11.5 million in 2010.

The question, of course, is what it will cost the Dodgers in return. It’s no secret the Braves want to add a bat to spark their struggling offense, and though the Dodgers could offer fourth outfielder Juan Pierre, he doesn’t exactly fit the Braves need for more power.
