Fresh off a World Series championship, free-agent-to-be Aroldis Chapman is seeking a new deal worth $100 million.
The Chicago Cubs would like to re-sign the closer, whom they acquired midseason for their World Series run, but not at the price Chapman is asking.
According to CSN Chicago, the Cubs will take a "targeted" approach to free agents this winter.
"I don't think it will be an extravaganza, as it was last year," general manager Jed Hoyer said from the GM meetings in Arizona. "We don't need to do that. But we are going to be looking at a lot of ways to acquire pitching."
Los Angeles could be a landing spot for Chapman. The Dodgers almost acquired the flame-throwing lefty from Cincinnati last offseason before he was traded to the New York Yankees, who subsequently dealt him to the Cubs.
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Dodgers will make a run at Chapman with closer Kenley Jansen ready to test free agency.
Chapman, 28, compiled a 1.55 ERA and struck out 90 batters in 58 innings last season.
Jansen's numbers almost mirrored Chapman's. The 29-year-old Dodgers closer registered a 1.83 ERA and 104 strikeouts in 68 2/3 innings.
