It would be the latest aggressive move by general manager Ned Colletti and the Dodgers, who made a blockbuster deal for former Boston slugger Manny Ramirez at the trade deadline. Days before that, they acquired third baseman Casey Blake from Cleveland.
Now in his 23rd major league season, Maddux has won a record 17 Gold Gloves. He reached 13 wins last year for the 20th consecutive season, passing Cy Young for the major league record.
Maddux is ninth on baseball's career wins list, one behind Roger Clemens, and 10th in strikeouts with 3,353.
Maddux has a 3.14 career ERA and his record includes 223 losses in 737 major league appearances, all but four of those starts.
The Dodgers, slogging through much of the season under .500 but still managing to remain in contention in their weak division, have improved since the acquisitions of Ramirez and Blake. Los Angeles has won six of seven to boost its record to 64-60.
