The Dodgers DON’T need to make a splash and re-sign Manny Machado … so says their ex-GM, Ned Colletti, who tells TMZ Sports the team already has enough talent!!

Ned — who oversaw the Dodgers’ baseball ops from 2006 through 2014 — says with Corey Seager at shortstop and Justin Turner at third base — Manny ain’t necessary.

“It’s not like the team is missing great players. They’ve got great players in the same spot.”

Of course … the new Dodgers’ leadership seemed to try anyway — they were reportedly in at least SOME talks with the superstar about a new deal earlier this offseason.

But, after L.A. signed outfielder A.J. Pollock to a monster $55 MILLION deal last week … Manny seems destined for a new team — perhaps even to the rival Padres.

BTW … we also spoke with Seager about his elbow AND hip surgeries and if they’re healed enough for him to be ready for Opening Day — and he says he “hopes” so.
