Dodgers rumors now indicate the team wants Masahiro Tanaka very badly. These fresh LA Dodgers rumors come from Friday (Jan. 10), with Masahiro Tanaka suddenly becoming the main goal of the franchise this offseason. According to a new report from CBS Sports on Friday afternoon, the team is stating that it will "go all-out" to sign the veteran starting pitcher from Japan.

Prior to this the front office in Los Angeles had only been stating that they were in the "feeling out process" when it came to signing another starting pitcher. Now it seems that they are going full steam ahead and that the team is willing to spend whatever it takes to bring him into the fold. Sports writer Bob Nightengale posted to Twitter that, "The #Dodgers have let it be known they plan to go all-out in their efforts to sign Tanaka, saying they and certainly won't be out-bid."

With a starting rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Dan Haren, and Hyun-Jin Ryu already in place, netting a player like this could give them one of the best starting rotations that Major League Baseball has seen in a while. That's not even taking into account injuries to Chad Billingsley and Josh Beckett that have delayed them from being ready for the 2014 MLB season. If these latest LA Dodgers rumors about signing Masahiro Tanaka are true, the team would immediately become the favorite to win the National League West and possibly the World Series.
