LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers manager Ned Colletti says the team's priorities going into next season involve adding a starting pitcher, keeping the bullpen intact, and improving the bench.
Colletti and the rest of the Dodgers' front office were in meetings to plan for 2013 on Thursday, a day after the Dodgers' season ended without making the playoffs for the third straight year and first under new ownership.
The Dodgers began the season in bankruptcy under former owner Frank McCourt and ended it with an 86-76 record under new owners that include Magic Johnson and Mark Walter. The team's payroll ranked 12th in the majors at $94.7 million on opening day and rose to eighth at $129.1 million by season's end.
