Braves land gems Hector Olivera, Paco Rodriguez from Dodgers
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/30/15) The Braves have sent starting pitchers Alex Wood and Bronson Arroyo, as well as closer Jim Johnson to the Dodgers in a three-way trade that brought several prospects.
Atlanta gets infielder Hector Olivera, left-hander Paco Rodriguez and right-hander Zachary Bird from Los Angeles, as well as the Marlins' competitive-balance draft pick in 2016.
The prizes in the trade are Olivera and Rodriguez. The former is batting .348 at Triple-A Olahoma City this season while the latter pitched in 18 games for the Dodgers earlier this year and recorded a 2.61 ERA.
Bird has struggled throughout his minor league career, but does have 95 strikeouts in 89 1/3 innings this year for Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga.
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.
