Report: Dodgers Trade for Hanley Ramirez, Randy Choate

Report: Dodgers Trade for Hanley Ramirez, Randy ChoateThe Marlins are mixing things up, and their future plans apparently don't include Hanley Ramirez.

Miami has traded Ramirez to the Dodgers, according to multiple reports, marking the Marlins' second big deal in as many days. On Monday, they dealt Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to the Tigers.

The Dodgers will reportedly also receive reliever Randy Choate as part of the deal while parting ways with starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and minor league pitcher Scott McGough.

The Dodgers will reportedly pick up nearly $40 million in contract obligations as well, as Ramirez is in the midst of a six-year deal that will pay him $15 million this year, $15 million next year and $16 million in 2014.

Ramirez is hitting .246 with 14 home runs and 47 RBIs through 92 games this season. Choate has a 2.49 ERA in 25 1/3 innings over 44 games.
