We learned yesterday that the Dodgers and Giants had both submitted offers to the Miami Marlins on starter Ricky Nolasco. According to the report, the Dodgers were willing to part with a pitching prospect and assume all of his remaining $5.7 million due this season. Ken Rosenthal has an updated report in which his source tells him the Dodgers have offered three prospects — “none upper echelon” — and that the two teams are close to an agreement.

The 30-year-old right-hander will have earned $11.5 million for this 2013 efforts and is eligible for free agency after the season. The Dodgers enter tonight’s game at 41-44, just 3.5 games out of first place in the NL West.

    With that salary, Nolasco should feel right at home on the Dodgers.

        The Jays did not want him. He seems like a perfect fit in LA.

    They aren’t even top prospects that the Dodgers are trading.How much longer until the Marlins call up their entire class A team.
