Dodgers snag strong starters in deal with Marlins, Braves
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/30/15) The Dodgers have snagged several veterans in a just-completed three-way trade filled with prospects, per Yahoo Sports.
They receive starting pitchers Alex Wood and Bronson Arroyo and relievers Luis Avilan and Jim Johnson, as well as minor league utility infielder Jose Peraza from the Braves. They also get first baseman Michael Morse and starting pitcher Mat Latos from the Marlins.
The Dodgers sent several prospects to both teams. First baseman Hector Olivera, lefty Paco Rodriguez and starting pitcher Zachary Bird head to Atlanta while pitchers Victor Araujo and Angel Guzman go to Miami.
The keys are Wood and Latos, who will likely immediately join the Los Angeles rotation, as well as Johnson, who has been used as the Atlanta closer.
The 24-year-old Wood hasn't performed as well this season as he did in 2014, but he is 7-6 with a 3.54 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 119 1/3 innings.
Latos is 4-7 with a 4.48 ERA, but has come on strong. He has allowed just six earned runs in his last 26 innings pitched.
Johnson has nine saves, but will almost certainly be used behind Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.

In return, the Braves would receive prospect Hector Olivera , lefty reliever Paco Rodriguez and minor-league pitcher Zach Bird from the Dodgers, and a 2016 draft pick from the Marlins.
The Marlins are also sending right-hander Mat Latos and first baseman Michael Morse to the Dodgers in exchange for three minor-league pitchers--right-handers Jeff Brigham, Victor Araujo and Kevin Guzman.
None of the three teams have officially announced the deal as of yet.
Braves prospect Jose Peraza doing well playing in center field
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/16/15) Braves top-100 prospect Jose Peraza hasn't done much offensively to move the needle at Triple-A Gwinnett. However, it seems his transition to the outfield is going smoothly.
Peraza, who still sees most of his playing time at second base, has appeared in 13 games in center field. He hasn't committed an error, while recording 25 putouts and one assist.
As for his offensive game, Peraza has a .284/.310/.365/.675 slash line in 82 games. He has three home runs, five triples, eight doubles, 34 RBI, 41 runs, 23 stolen bases, 13 walks and 33 strikeouts.
Braves' Jose Peraza beginning to see action in center field
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/31/15) Braves second-base prospect Jose Peraza saw his first game action in center field with Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday as the team looks to find his best opportunity to contribute in the majors, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
"I talked to (Gwinnett manager Brian Snitker) today about it," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said of the Peraza situation Saturday. "He goes, 'I’m not going to say you could run him out there tomorrow (in center) in a big league game, but he’s got the ability to do it.' I don’t think it’s something that we’re going to see him next week or anything like that. I think it’s just, let him play center and maybe a couple of months down the road, or maybe it’s next year, there’s a possibility there. It makes sense."
Peraza was initially a shortstop prospect but moved to second base due to the presence of Andrelton Simmons at the top of the organizational depth chart. The Braves are now looking into transitioning him again with Jace Peterson playing well at second base in his first season with the team.
"We sat down and talked about it, because we like Peterson," Gonzalez said. "And why create a logjam there when we can have Peraza play the outfield and use his talents, his abilities."
Braves center fielder Cameron Maybin could be shifted to left field if the team decides at some point to promote Peraza to play center. The prospect has hit .293/.333/.379 with two home runs, 18 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 174 at-bats with Gwinnett.
Braves prospect Jose Peraza makes first appearance in outfield
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) Braves infield prospect Jose Peraza played in the outfield for the first time in his career during Wednesday's game for Triple-A Gwinnett. He started in center field.
Peraza is considered a top-100 prospect by MLB.com (No. 38) and Baseball America (No. 54). He has primarily played at shortstop and second base in his minor-league career.
He is batting .296 with two doubles, two home runs, three triples, 16 RBI, 19 runs and 14 stolen bases in 40 games for Gwinnett this season. He has a career .305/.350/.390/.739 slash line.
|2014 summary: Though a good contact hitter and base stealer from the time he began his minor-league career at age 17, Jose Peraza took it to another level last year, batting .339 with 60 stolen bases. And he kept it up even after graduating to Double-A, often a reality check for surging prospects, batting .335 with 25 steals there over the final two-fifths of the season.|
Playing time status: With the performance, Peraza emerged as arguably the Braves' top prospect and certainly their second baseman of the future, and they traded Tommy La Stella to make sure they'd have a spot for him as soon as he proves ready. Spring training seems like a long shot for the 20-year-old, but you shouldn't rule out a midseason debut.
2015 outlook: Peraza has his flaws -- he's never seen a pitch he didn't like and is mostly a singles hitter at this stage of his career -- but the hype on him is justified given what he does right. In mixed leagues, his debut is still too far down the road for you to bother with him, but at least in Rotisserie formats, he should factor whenever he does get the call.
