The Los Angeles Dodgers made a blockbuster trade this past week, shipping Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp and Alex Wood to the Cincinnati Reds. Another one may be in the works.

Coming off back-to-back World Series losses, the Dodgers have been aggressive this offseason. They are currently still looking to acquire a top-flight starting pitcher.

According to MLB.com's Jon Morosi, they still have Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber in their sights.

The Indians are listening to offers on Kluber, and the Dodgers are reportedly willing to surrender a top prospect.

The Dodgers won't trade Cody Bellinger -- on whom they have five years of control before free agency -- for Kluber, whose term could stretch to 2021 through club options. However, one source indicated the Dodgers are willing to discuss outfield prospect Alex Verdugo as part of a Kluber trade. The Indians' trade dialogue over the past week has been heavier on Kluber than fellow right-hander Trevor Bauer, sources say, although at this point a major deal involving a Cleveland starter is not expected before Christmas.

Additionally, with Puig and Kemp out of LA, many are projecting the Dodgers to be the favorites to land free-agent outfielder Bryce Harper.

A busy offseason in LA could get even busier.

Stay tuned.
