Dodgers, Marlins, Braves agree to 13-player trade
The deal was reportedly first agreed upon on Wednesday, before the Braves came into play.
As first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times’s Gordon Wittenmyer, the Dodgers will receive righthander Mat Latos and first baseman Michael Morse from the Marlins. They will also receive pitchers Alex Wood, Jim Johnson, Bronson Arroyo and Luis Avilan as well as top prospect Jose Peraza from the Braves.
Morse was subsequently designated for assignment by the Dodgers.
In exchange, the Braves will receive pitcher Paco Rodriguez and minor leaguers Hector Olivera and Zack Bird from the Dodgers, in addition to a competitive-balance draft pick from the Marlins.
The Marlins will get minor league pitchers Jeff Brigham, Kevin Guzman and Victor Araujo from the Dodgers.
In all, the Braves gave up five players in exchange for three players and a draft pick. The Marlins gave up two players and a draft pick for three prospects, and the Dodgers gave up six players to get seven.
The Dodgers also designated three other players for assignment: Brandon Beachy, Chris Heisey and Chin-Hui Tsao.
The Braves and Marlins are eight and 12 games out of first place, respectively, in the NL East. The Dodgers are holding onto first place in the NL West by 1/2 game over the Giants.
