The Dodgers will receive pitching prospect Andrew Heaney, reliever Chris Hatcher, utilityman Enrique Hernandez, and minor league catcher Austin Barnes, according to multiple reports.
The Marlins got a player they felt they needed to compete in 2015, while the Dodgers get a top-tier prospect who can slot into their rotation at some point next season.
The new Los Angeles Dodgers front office started swapping Wednesday. After acquiring veteran shortstop Jimmy Rollins from the Philadelphia Phillies, the Dodgers went young, reportedly trading for pitcher Andrew Heaney, the Miami Marlins' top prospect.
I know Marlins fans probably don’t need any more reasons to hate this trade, but still, I present this. http://t.co/AmIW4nv0Ah— David Cameron (@DCameronFG) December 11, 2014
The top of the Marlins' lineup next season -- Yelich, Gordon, Stanton, perhaps -- could be dynamic. Lots of chances for No. 4 hitter.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) December 11, 2014
The #Marlins just traded their best prospect for Dee Gordon, a guy who has a .314 career OBP and not the best fielder in town. Ok then.— Michael Baron (@michaelgbaron) December 10, 2014
Another evaluator prefers the Marlins' haul, saying Dee Gordon is a + 2B who steals bases while players going to Dodgers quantity > quality.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) December 11, 2014
Dee Gordon is probably the friendliest baseball player I've ever met. Good luck to him. Love this trade nonetheless.— Mike Petriello (@mike_petriello) December 11, 2014
Dee Gordon had a .648 OPS with 47 strikeouts and four walks after the All-Star break.— Jesse Spector (@jessespector) December 10, 2014
Dee Gordon had a 101 wRC+ in 2014. He’s projected for an 83 wRC+ in 2015. So...— Beyond the Box Score (@BtBScore) December 10, 2014
Andrew Heaney in particular is a polarizing player. Marlins were down on him, and some don't see him as much more than a back-end starter.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) December 11, 2014
Wow..Stuff like this always happens in baseball...but it's always tough losing brothers! My man @Heandog8 is gonna kill it out in LA!— Justin Nicolino (@J_Nicolino22) December 11, 2014
Marlins' trade for Gordon grades as a Dee-minus http://t.co/NA2Vkvjaru— Jesse Spector (@jessespector) December 11, 2014
