Dodgers aquire Ricky Nolasco from Marlins


The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired RHP Ricky Nolasco from the Miami Marlins for RHPs Josh Wall, Steven Ames and Angel Sanchez.

The Dodgers will cover the entire $5.7 million remaining on Nolasco’s contract, and they’ll get $197,000 in international cap space in return from Miami.

Nolasco, 30, pitched seven innings picking up a win in his last start on Wednesday. General manager Ned Colletti said a decision has not been made as to when Nolasco will enter the rotation.

“(Nolasco) is somebody that can help us out,”  Colletti said. “Obviously he’s an accomplished big league starter. We felt we needed to add a starter at this point in the season and we had conversations with (the Marlins) going back about a week or so now. I think it’s a benefit to acquire somebody before you get to the 31st. That was part of it as well.”

Nolasco can become a free agent after the season. He 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.
