MLB Trade Rumors reports that the Los Angeles Dodgers have been in talks with free-agent infielder Adam Kennedy.

The former Mariners utility-man could serve as a backup to Dodgers starters James Loney, Mark Ellis, Dee Gordon and Juan Uribe.

This past season, Kennedy went .234/.277/.355 while playing at first, second, and third base for Seattle.  The 13-year veteran has hit .272/.326/.385 over the course of his career with stints in St. Louis, Anaheim, and Oakland. The former first round pick was selected as the American League Championship Series Most Valuable Player in 2002, where he posted .357/.357/1.00 as a member of the eventual World Series winning Angels.
