Atlanta would receive minor league utilityman Hector Olivera from the Dodgers — who would reportedly pay all of the $62.5 million contract he signed in spring — as well as injured left-hander Paco Rodriguez, Single-A pitcher Zack Bird and a 2016 compensation-round draft pick from the Miami Marlins, currently 35th overall.
The Braves would reportedly pay some of Arroyo’s salary. The right-hander is on the 60-day disabled list recovering from Tommy John surgery in July 2014 and isn’t expected to pitch in a major league game until next year.
The Dodgers are expected to sign three of the top international free agents on the market once the next signing period opens July 2, according to FanGraphs.
Cuban pitcher Yadier Alvarez, Cuban center fielder Eddy Martinez and Bahamian shortstop Lucius Fox — holy nomenclature, Batman! — are all projected to sign with the Dodgers, according to the report. Click on the above link for more background information and scouting reports on the three players.
