The NL West champion Dodgers have declined their 2014 options on second baseman Mark Ellis and lefty swingman Chris Capuano. The Dodgers had held a $5.75 million option/$1 million buyout on Ellis and a $8 million option/$1 million buyout on Capuano.

This season, Ellis, 36, batted .270/.323/.351 in 126 games. Next season, he'll be replaced at second base by Cuban free agent Alexander Guerrero, whom the Dodgers signed to a four-year, $28-million deal. As for Capuano, the 35-year-old pitched to a 4.26 ERA in 24 appearances, 20 of which were starts.
