    Dodgers Acquire Ricky Nolasco

    By Jeff Todd [July 6 at 8:12pm CST]
    After dominating the trade rumor headlines for weeks, Ricky Nolasco has finally found a new team. The Southern California native will get a chance to play for his hometown Dodgers, as the club officially agreed today to acquire the longtime Marlins starter in exchange for a trio of pitching prospects. Headlining the arms coming to Miami is young righty Angel Sanchez, who is joined by right-handed relievers Steve Ames and Josh Wall.

    Along with Nolasco, the Dodgers will receive the rights to international signing bonus slot number 96, which carries a $197k bonus allocation. (Click here to see how the international slot system works in practice.) Los Angeles will also take on all of the approximately $5.5MM remaining on Nolasco’s contract

    As Dave Cameron said: The Marlins sending the Dodgers bonus space is like a homeless guy buying Bill Gates lunch.

    Well, it could make sense. If the Dodgers have their eye on someone that they think will require going over their bonus limit enough to force them into the penalty, where they give up the right to sign someone in the future. Getting some extra money for this signing session could allow them to sign someone else next year. Maybe.

    It makes sense, of course. It is just funny.
