The Los Angeles Dodgers are involved in discussions to acquire pitcher Ricky Nolasco from the Miami Marlins, a source told ESPN.com on Wednesday.
Nolasco, 30, is 4-7 with a 3.68 ERA for the Marlins. A native of Southern California, he can become a free agent after the season. Miami is reportedly aggressively trying to move him before the July 31 trade deadline.
The Dodgers entered Thursday well behind in the race for a playoff spot, but have won a season-high four straight games.
