CHICAGO -- Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said he's looking for help outside the organization "a little bit," but remains optimistic that the club can overcome its slow start.
"I'd have to really talk some team into it, and really pay to do it -- overpay," Colletti said of a trade. "I still think if we get ourselves healthier, we'll be in it. We were right there, three games out a few days ago. No other club has lost the players we've lost. We're going to be all right."
The Dodgers have suffered 14 disabling injuries and currently have eight players on the disabled list, including relievers Jonathan Broxton, Hong-Chih Kuo, Vicente Padilla and Blake Hawksworth.
"To make a deal in May, the other club is either moving a contract or taking a player who's a detriment to the club off the club, and there would be a lot of prospects [leaving the Dodgers] attached to the other end," Colletti said. "There still are a lot of clubs trying to get their feet underneath them."
