Nolasco will try to come out strong in his Dodgers debut Tuesday night opposite Diamondbacks starter Ian Kennedy, who played a big role in last month's brawl between the two clubs.
After several teams showed interest in him, Los Angeles (43-45) acquired Nolasco from Miami in exchange for three minor league pitchers Saturday.
"I'm definitely excited. It's L.A., the team that I grew up going to the games as a kid," Nolasco, who grew up in Corona, Calif., told MLB's official website. "It's kind of surreal now, until I'm actually there. It will take time to sink in, but I'm definitely excited."
The right-hander went 5-8 with a 3.85 ERA in 18 starts with the Marlins, allowing two runs and six hits in seven innings Wednesday in a 6-3 win over the Braves.

In the top of the fifth inning, Adrian Gonzalez came to the plate with the bases loaded, driving a long fly ball to straightaway center field. The runners had to freeze as Arizona center fielder Adam Eaton tracked...

The San Francisco Giants appear to be setting their main focus on a bigger fish after losing out on the Ricky Nolasco sweepstakes to the rival Dodgers. While the Dodgers are playing good baseball, you can't really say that about the Giants. They have been losing games, batting out of order and battling injuries to pretty much everyone.
The Giants after losing out on Ricky...

While other leagues have salary caps and floors, Major League Baseball has instituted a system of luxury taxes (to bring down the highest payrolls) and revenue sharing (to bring up the lowest ones). As I noted in a piece for ESPN The Magazine this spring, the system has...
