The Dodgers managed to re-sign the versatile Chris Taylor before the collective bargaining agreement expired and owners imposed a lockout Wednesday night. But the Dodgers hold hope that Kershaw will choose them over joining Seager to play for his hometown Rangers. Two of the four Dodgers tendered contracts this week are the best starting pitchers on the roster: Walker Buehler and Julio Urias. Retaining him Wednesday in the hours before the lockout was a victory after the blows the Dodgers took the previous 96 hours. The Dodgers will have their work cut out for them when the lockout ends.
