Dodgers deal former Lookout Eovaldi to Marlins

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) - Former Chattanooga Lookouts' pitcher Nathan Eovaldi was traded by Los Angeles to Miami  in a multiplayer deal that helped the Dodgers acqure former NL batting champion Hanley Ramirez.

It was the second big deal in as many days for the disappointing Marlins, who announced the news before their 7-1 loss to the the Atlanta Braves Wednesday afternoon.

The Dodgers also get reliever Randy Choate, while minor-league pitcher Scott McGough joins Eovaldi in Miami.

Eovaldi, who pitched on and off in Chattanooga the past two seasons, was a deceiving 1-6 this year at the big-leauge level. The 22-year-old has received little run support since taking over for the injured Ted Lilly in the Dodgers' rotation. His 4.15 ERA is lower than Clayton Kershaw's rookie mark of 4.26 a few years ago.

A day after the Marlins sent pitcher Anibal Sanchez and infielder Omar Infante to the Detroit Tigers for pitching prospect Jacob Turner and two minor leaguers, Miami traded with another playoff hopeful.
