Nolasco trade to the Dodgers reportedly "imminent"

CBSSports.com, FOXSports.com and MLB.com are among the news agencies reporting that the Marlins have a deal in place to send pitcher Ricky Nolasco to the Dodgers as early as Saturday evening.

According to the reports, the Dodgers would absorb Nolasco's remaining $11.5 million salary for this season and likely send the Marlins three minor-leaguers.

A few teams including the Dodgers were rumored in recent weeks to be interested in Nolasco, 30, who is 5-8 with a 3.85 ERA this season in 18 starts.

Nolasco would fit in the Dodgers rotation behind Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu.

Nolasco is the Marlins' all-time leader in wins (81), games started (197) and innings pitched (1,225 2/3).
