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 on the verge of trading infielder Hector Olivera to the Atlanta Braves as part of a three-team trade that would bring Marlins pitcher Mat Latosto Los Angeles, plus Alex Wood and a major league reliever from the Braves — possibly Jim Johnson or Luis Avilan — according to multiple reports Wednesday night:
Dodgers-Braves-Marlins deal if it goes down involves Avilan, Wood, Latos, Morse, Olivera, Peraza #braves#Dodgers#marlins
