Dietrich was hurt while playing in the Dominican league when covering second base and a runner collided with him trying to grab the ball.
Dietrich played in 20 games for Miami in 2014, hitting .290 with two triples and 11 RBI. It is unknown if this injury will keep Dietrich out into spring training and the beginning of the regular season.
The 22-year-old Herrera hit .315 with two home runs, five triples, 19 doubles and 59 RBI in 125 games between high Class A and Double-A last season. He has a career .294/.354/.377/.730 slash line over six seasons in the minors.
Rutledge has spent three seasons in the majors and hit .269/.323/.405 with four home runs and 33 RBI in 309 at-bats in 2014. While he proved much more dangerous against lefthanders last season, posting a .309/.371/.469 line in 81 at-bats against southpaws, he's delivered virtually identical splits against lefties and righties in his career. Where he's struggled is away from Coors Field, hitting just .230/.274/.354 with eight home runs and 36 RBI in 418 road at-bats in his career. Rutledge will likely compete for the starting second-base role vacated by the Howie Kendrick deal.
Diaz started 2014 in high Class A and ended the season in the majors, giving up two earned runs on four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out eight over five appearances. He posted a 3.48 ERA and 85:20 K:BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings between high Class A Inland Empire and Double-A Arkansas.
Walker is under contract through 2016, but the team would like to make sure the Pittsburgh native is a Pirate for life. "We would like nothing more than to have Neil Walker end his career as a Pirate, there's no question about that," general manager Neal Huntington said. The club attempted to extend Walker back in 2011, but talks broke off quickly.
Walker, 29, hit .271/.342/.467 over 512 at-bats last year.
The Dodgers acquired Heaney earlier on Wednesday in a six player deal with Miami. Once that trade was processed, the team dealt the 23-year-old pitcher to the Angels for Kendrick. Kendrick, 31, hit .293/.347/.397 over 617 at-bats last year. Kendrick is owed just under $10 million, and is entering the final year of his contract.
Heaney appeared in seven games for the Marlins last year, including five starts. He posted a 5.83 ERA over 29 1/3 innings. He was considered a top-20 prospect entering last season, according to MLB.com.
The 35-year-old Utley hit .270/.339/.407 over 589 at-bats last season. Utley is owed $10 million in 2015, and then his contract goes year-to-year based on options. His options are dependent on how much time Utley spends on the disabled list. If he were to remain completely healthy, Utley would be under team control through the 2018 season.
The 26-year-old hit .289/.326/.378 over 609 at-bats last season. He stole 64 bases. The Dodgers will also send Dan Haren over in the deal. The 34-year-old pitcher is owed $10 million, but has said he would consider retiring if dealt away from Los Angeles.
Los Angeles will also send shortstop Miguel Rojas to Miami. Rojas hit .181 over 149 at-bats in the majors last year.
Pitcher Andrew Heaney will head to Los Angeles in the deal, according to the Miami Herald. The Marlins will also send over Enrique Hernandez, Austin Barnes and Chris Hatcher.
The 23-year-old Hernandez hit .319/.372/.484 over two minor-league levels last year. Hatcher, 29, posted a 3.38 ERA over 56 innings. Barnes, 24, hit .304/.398/.472 over two levels last year.
Gordon is entering his first season of arbitration, and will not be a free-agent until after the 2019 season.
The 26-year-old Gordon hit .289/.326/.378 over 609 at-bats last season. Gordon is entering his first season of arbitration, and wouldn't become a free-agent until after the 2019 season. The 23-year-old Heaney got his first taste of the majors last year. He posted a 5.83 ERA over seven appearances. Heaney made five starts. It's possible other players are involved in the trade discussions.
"He's a cost-controlled, All-Star second baseman," Zaidi said. "We are not dangling him. He is our second baseman."
