Well, so much for that. According to the Dodgers, the team has declined the 2014 options on both Mark Ellis and Chris Capuano. We knew that would happen to Capuano, but there were defensible reasons to wonder if Ellis might stick. Either or both could still return, of course, and the first five days after the World Series are reserved for teams to exclusively negotiate with their own players, but after that they are free to the world.
The Dodgers now have 33 on the 40-man roster, which includes the five who were on the 60-day disabled list and removes the 12 who became free agents today.
