Dodgers make offer to Marlins for Ricky Nolasco, per report

Hannah Foslien

The Dodgers reportedly have an offer on the table for Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco, a Rialto High School grad.

The Dodgers' pursuit of Ricky Nolasco has apparently progressed to the offer stage, as both the Dodgers and Giants reportedly have made offers to the Marlins for the right-handed pitcher, per Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.

The Dodgers have reportedly offered one pitching prospect, plus the assumption of Nolasco's full remaining contract, roughly $5.4 million of his $11.5 million salary if dealt right now, per Frisaro. The Giants' offer, per Frisaro, consists of two pitchers but Miami would have to pay a portion of the remaining salary.

The sense of urgency for the Marlins to make a deal is unknown. As Frisaro reported, "The Marlins have had conversations with more than a half dozen teams regarding Nolasco. They may be waiting to see if any more tempting offers surface."

Nolasco is 5-8 with a 3.85 ERA in 18 starts this season. The 30-year-old, who will be a free agent after the season, is scheduled to start next for the Marlins on Monday at home against the Braves.

If the current Dodgers rotation holds as is, Zack Greinke would be scheduled to start Monday in Arizona in the opener of a three-game series against the Diamondbacks, followed in Phoenix by left-handers Chris Capuano and Hyun-jin Ryu.
