It’s official. The Marlins have traded Ricky Nolasco and the Marlins’ fourth-selection of the 2013 International Bonus Pool to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Angel Sanchez, Steven Ames and Josh Wall in exchange for free-agent-to-be Ricky Nolasco.
Acquired in 2006, Nolasco was the Marlins all-time leader in wins, losses, and strikeouts. The dominican born Angel Sanchez was the #8 prospect in the Dodgers farm system. Both Steve Ames and Josh Wall are closers in the minors with Ames recorded 18 saves with a 1.56 ERA at AA and Wall collecting 28 saves at AAA last season.
