After seven years with the Marlins, Ramirez will start a whole new chapter in LA.

Marlins Deal Hanley Ramirez to Dodgers

The Dodgers added much needed offensive help by acquiring 3B Hanley Ramirez from the Marlins.

Miami received young starting pitcher Nate Eovaldi and minor league right handed pitcher Scott McGhough in exchange for Ramirez and left handed reliever Randy Choate.

With the Marlins nearly out of contention for the post season they have decided to become sellers, and as a result, will look to move big contracts for young talented players. They spent a ton of money this offseason and seemed primed to contend, but the moves haven't panned out and they've reverted to their old ways. As for the Dodgers, they are clearly buyers in the trade market following the acquisition of Ramirez.

This move makes a lot of sense for the Dodgers, as they are looking to make a push at a postseason berth. Their offense has lacked punch for much of the season, some of it due to the absence of Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier. With the addition of Hanley Ramirez, the Dodgers now have a formidable lineup for opposing pitchers to deal with.Also, Randy Choate is a dependable lefty the Dodgers could count on at certain times out of the pen.

Ramirez this season is batting a disappointing .246 with 14 HR and 46 RBI. LA will hope that he will be re-invigorated after the trade and will improve on those numbers moving forward. That would be a huge boost in the middle of the lineup.
