Ned Colletti has been making some calls

MLB.com's Evan Drellich says Dodgers GM Ned Colletti has been making some calls regarding the availability of some pitching:

The Dodgers have had conversations with expected teams as the Trade Deadline approaches, including the Mariners, Astros, Blue Jays, Indians and D-backs, a baseball source said.

Joe Torre:
"Unless something knocks your socks off or something makes sense, I think pitching is the area probably -- starting and relieving. Whatever will tighten up what we have now. I know [general manager Ned Colletti] has been exploring, and we've done it the last couple years, and my guess is we'll get some help."

The Dodgers are currently 10th in the NL in ERA, with 4.10, and they are one of two NL teams to not throw a complete game. However, they do have the 6th-best OPS-against, with the staff posting a .712 OPSA. And, of course, they're three games behind the Padres for the NL West lead and are a half-game behind the Mets for the Wild Card, if the Wild Card mattered right now.
