MLB: Dodgers Acquire Ricky Nolasco in Trade with Marlins

Jul 8 2013, 4:13am CDT | by

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired pitcher Ricky Nolasco from the Miami Marlins on Sunday in exchange for three pitching prospects.

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired pitcher Ricky Nolasco from the Miami Marlins on Sunday in exchange for three pitching prospects. 

NBC 4 Southern California's Trevor O'Brien reports the three prospects as Steven Ames, Angel Sanchez and Josh Wall. Los Angeles was also on the receiving end of a $197,000 international signing bonus. Nolasco should fit right into the fourth spot of the Dodgers' pitching rotation behind Clayton Kershaw, Zach Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu, per O'Brien. 

The Miami Herald's Andre Fernandez confirms the trade was consummated mere hours after the Marlins lost 5-4 on a walk-off to the St. Louis Cardinals. Los Angeles will also pick up the remaining $5.7 million that is due Nolasco in 2013. 

Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said although Nolasco was not part of their long-term plan, he did a great job during his stint with the team nonetheless. 

"Ricky's been terrific not only through the last few weeks but throughought all of this. We had made this decision quite some time ago. We have a stable of young pitchers, and Ricky was not part of the plan. He understood that from the beginning. We're happy we can send him out west. He deserves it. He did a great job for us."

The deal could very well work out in Nolasco's favor, a native of Corona, Ca. who grew up a Dodgers fan, as has limped to a 5-8 record with a 3.85 ERA during the current season with the Marlins. 

Nolasco tweeted about his enthusiasm regarding the trade.  

"So pumped to wear Dodger Blue! Can't wait!"

Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti affirmed his new pitcher's excitement. 

"He's excited. California guy coming back and he's excited to be a Dodger. He's obviously got some roots in Southern California and I think he sees our situation here and he sees the club that's assembled and how we've played the last couple of weeks, and I think that's a plus for him."

Nolasco is set to make his Dodgers debut on Tuesday in Arizona against the Diamondbacks.
