As Robinson Cano approaches free agency next month many expect a fierce bidding war to erupt between the Yankees and Dodgers.

Everybody other than the Dodgers that is.

According to a high-ranking National League executive with knowledge of the situation the Dodgers have no intention to bid on Cano this winter leaving the second baseman without one of the sport’s richest teams in the sweepstakes for his services.

“They’re not interested in Cano” the executive said.

The Dodgers opened the season with a payroll of about $220 million second only to the Yankees among the 30 big-league clubs.

According to the Cot’s Baseball Contracts website Los Angeles has already committed more than $163 million in salaries to 14 players for 2014 although the Dodgers have six players eligible for arbitration and more than a half-dozen free agents.

Cuban second baseman Alexander Guerrero was linked to the Dodgers earlier this season reportedly agreeing to a seven-year $32 million deal — $10 million less than the Dodgers paid Yasiel Puig in June of 2012.
