Marlins trade Hanley Ramirez to Dodgers in multiplayer swap

MIAMI - The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired former NL batting champion Hanley Ramirez from Miami in a multiplayer trade, the second big deal in as many days for the disappointing Marlins.

The Marlins announced the deal Wednesday at a news conference before their game against the Atlanta Braves.

The Dodgers also get reliever Randy Choate, while the Marlins receive pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and minor-league pitcher Scott McGough.

A day after the Marlins sent pitcher Anibal Sanchez and infielder Omar Infante to the Detroit Tigers for pitching prospect Jacob Turner and two minor leaguers, Miami traded with another playoff hopeful.
