Dodgers close to payroll budget

After signing Zack Greinke, the Dodgers may be done spending on the free agent market.

The Dodgers have been the biggest spenders in baseball over the last few months, but that may change soon as Los Angeles is close to its season budget.

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said the team is where they are going to be in terms of the season payroll and aren't likely to make any other major moves unless something is "too good to say no to." Since being acquired by the Guggenheim Baseball Group in May, the Dodgers have taken on more than $600 million in salary including the $147 million deal with Greinke.

Even if the Dodgers are close to their spending budget for the season, Los Angeles will still have the highest payroll in MLB history. The Dodgers are currently expected to enter the season with a payroll of more than $230 million. That is more than $20 million more than the current record of $209 million set by the 2008 New York Yankees.

While they aren't likely to be contenders for any more marquee free agents, the Dodgers could still make a few low cost additions.
