Dodgers Acquire Ricky Nolasco From Marlins

Miami Marlins newsThe Los Angeles Dodgers acquired right-hander Ricky Nolasco from the Miami Marlins for three minor league pitchers, Steve Ames, Josh Wall and Angel Sanchez. The Dodgers also picked up an international signing bonus worth $197,000 in the deal.

Nolasco, a Southern California native who can become a free agent after the season, went 5-8 with a 3.85 ERA in 18 starts for the Marlins and has a career mark of 81-72 with a 4.44 ERA.

“He’s excited,”  Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti said. “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 will join a rotation that  features Cy Young Award winners Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke along with Korean born lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu.

The Dodgers have one 11 of their last 13 games  and our four games behind the National League Western division leading Arizona Diamondbacks.
