In some ways, outfielder Kal Daniels has already left the Dodgers.

He has removed all of his clothes from his Glendale-area home. He has placed his car in a moving van.

He has returned to his hometown, in Warner Robins, Ga., to wait, and hope, for the trade.

“Yeah, Fred Claire (Dodger executive vice president) asked me to play first base, and yeah, I told him I would give it my best shot,” Daniels said during the weekend. “But I asked him to try and trade me first. I think I can still play the outfield. Somewhere.”

Daniels laughed. “I think first base was just a passing thought for Fred,” he said. “I don’t think Fred was serious.”
