Dodgers designate IF Ryan Jackson for assignment.

With the Dodgers picking up Juan Nicasio, Jackson loses his spot on the 40-man roster. He should stick around with the club as he probably won't see more than a minor league deal from any other teams either.

Dodgers acquire Rockies RHP Juan Nicasio for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Nicasio was just booted off the 40-man roster so the Rockies are at least getting something for basically nothing here. Should he learn to harness in those control issues he's had and learn to just trust his stuff and pound the strikeout, Dodger Stadium could prove to be a great a nice home for him.

Diamondbacks have traded RHP Mike Bolsinger to the Dodgers for cash considerations.

The 26-year old came out of nowhere last season, making an impact out of the rotation for the Diamondbacks with a 5.50 ERA in 52.1 innings in 10 starts. While that ERA doesn't look so great, but a 3.31xFIP suggests that he was much better than it appeared. If he can put up an ERA under 4.00 for the Dodgers this upcoming season he could have a decent role in the depleted Dodger bullpen as a middle relief pitcher.

Matt Kemp is drawing interest and could be moved this offseason.

As he should. Did Kemp get off to a slow start last season? Of course he did. He was still recovering from injuries and surgery. But he finished the season with a .287/.346/.506 slash line with 25 home runs, 89 RBI and 77 runs scored. He only swiped eight bags last season and he's never going to be that 40-steal guy he was back in 2011, but he's still got solid power and his plate discipline numbers are right in line with his career averages. There's plenty more left in the tank and if he were to land with a club whose home is in a hitter's par, he could easily eclipse the 30-homer mark with some consistency. If the Dodgers were smart, they'd try to hold him and ditch Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford before dealing Kemp. Unfortunately for them, though, he's the one who will command the most on the trade market.

The Los Angeles Dodgers added Adam Liberatore, whom they acquired from the Rays along with Joel Peralta, to their 40-man roster.

Liberatore had a 1.66 ERA and 1.65 FIP in 65 innings in Triple-A, thanks in part to a career-low 2.08 BB/9. With 146.1 career relief innings at Triple-A, Liberatore is probably as read for the majors as he will ever be. He should get every opportunity to break camp with the Dodgers, though he is unlikely to have a significant role right away.

The Tampa Bay Rays added Jose Dominguez, whom they acquired as part of the Joel Peralta trade, to their 40-man roster.

Dominguez's young career has been marked by high strikeout rates and even higher walk rates, including a 4.86 BB/9 in 33.1 innings at Triple-A last season. If the Rays can help Dominguez find they plate he could become an extremely effective late-inning reliever.

Dodgers selected the contracts of RHP Zach Lee, LHP Chris Reed and OF Scott Schebler to the club?s 40-man roster.

The notable name here is Zach Lee who has been a top 100 prospect on Baseball America's preseason list for three straight seasons. He will start the 2015 season at Triple-A Albuquerque but should reach the major leagues at some point during the year.

Dodgers acquired OF/1B Kyle Jensen from the Marlins in exchange for a player to be named or cash considerations.

Jensen is a big power hitter who has had a problem with punching out in the minor leagues. There is some potential in Jensen as there is plenty of pop in his bat.

Clayton Kershaw was named the National League Most Valuable Player.

This was considered to be a very close race, but Kershaw managed to win his first National League MVP award on Thursday night. This was his second major award this season, as he claimed the NL Cy Young Award on Wednesday. A lot of discussion will be made as to whether a pitcher deserves to win the MVP award, but there is absolutely no denying the fantastic season Kershaw put together in 2014. GIancarlo Stanton received eight first-place while for a second place finish, while Andrew McCutchen received four first-place votes to claim third place.

Clayton Kershaw was named NL Cy Young Award winner.

This came as no surprise. Kershaw was the unanimous winner in the National League and this came after he missed over a month due to a back injury. He won his third Cy Young award and is only 26 years old, a feat that is truly remarkable. He is now the ninth player in baseball history to win three Cy Young award. It is safe to say that he will add a few more to his shelf before his career concludes. Johnny Cueto and Adam Wainwright finished second and third, respectively.
