NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with the deal says the Miami Marlins have worked a multiplayer trade to send former NL batting champion Hanley Ramirez to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because there was no official announcement.
The Dodgers will also get reliever Randy Choate while the Marlins will receive pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and a minor leaguer.
Multiple media outlets reported the trade late Tuesday night.
Ramirez is hitting .246 this season with 14 home runs and 48 RBI. The Dodgers inherit the rest of the 28 year old's contract that runs through 2014 at an average of $14,000,000 per year.
Ramirez was slated to hit fifth and play shortstop for the Dodgers on Wednesday night in St. Louis. He will hit after Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier in the lineup.
