Dodgers Aquire Hanley Ramirez

/ / /
The Dodgers aquired Hanley Ramirez and left-handed reliever Randy Choate from the Miami Marlins and sent sent rookie starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and minor league pitcher Scott McGough to the Marlins.

Ramirez will play shortstop while Dee Gordon is on the disabled list; it's still uncertain whether he'd play third base when Gordon returns. For the Marlins, Eovaldi was regarded as one of the top young pitchers in the Dodgers organization, skipping Triple-A and coming directly to the major leagues from Double-A.

The Dodgers will be paying all of what remains on Ramirez’s contract. Ramirez, 28, is still owed about $6 million of his $15-million salary this year. He will earn $15.5 million next year and $16 million in 2014, the final year of his contract.
