Originally posted on Dodgers Rumors  |  Last updated 7/6/13
The Los Angeles Dodgers have officially acquired starting right-hander Ricky Nolasco from the Miami Marlins for right-handers Josh Wall, Steven Ames and Angel Sanchez. The Dodgers are on the hook for the entire $5.7MM remaining on Nolasco’s contract, but  the Dodgers have reported they will receive international signing bonus slot number 96, which equates to $197,000 in international cap space in return from the Marlins. The veteran right-hander will carry better potential for wins out in Los Angeles and will instantly provide some stability to the Dodgers’ starting rotation. Nolasco undoubtedly a big upgrade over what the Dodgers have been throwing out there lately. Nolasco, 30, brings a career 4.44 ERA in 1225 2/3 career innings to the Dodgers, and is currently sporting a 3.85 ERA over 112 1/3 innings in 2013.  Nolasco’s healthy arm will be a welcomed addition to the rotation. Nolasco has pitched over 190 innings over the past two seasons, and is currently on pace to top 200 innings for the third time in his career. Nolasco will become a free agent at the end of the season unless signed to an unlikely extension by the Dodgers. Since he did not begin the year on the club, the Dodgers will not be able to obtain draft pick compensation by making Nolasco a qualifying offer.
