SHARE DODGERS LOSE TUDOR; VALENZUELA GOING TO A’S?

Amid an off-season that is looking strangely like last summer, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost free agent pitcher John Tudor Thursday and could be losing free agent pitcher Fernando Valenzuela.

Tudor, deciding he needed to pitch more than three times a month as he did in September, turned down a competitive Dodger offer and signed with a one-year deal with the St. Louis Cardinals. At the same time, sources said Valenzuela was within days of signing with another team, the leading candidate being the Oakland Athletics."Yes, we have talked to Valenzuela," an Oakland source confirmed. "There won't be anything tomorrow, but I can't say about two or three days from now."
