Just wanted to keep you in the loop.  Hanley Ramirez has been traded to the Dodgers. The move sends he and former Yankee Randy Choate to the Dodgers  for Nathan Eovaldi and Scott McGough.

According to the the Los Angeles Times, HERE: "The Dodgers will be adding about $38 million in financial commitments, almost all of which will be invested in the talented but temperamental Ramirez, the 2009 National League batting champion.

The Dodgers will be paying all of what remains on Ramirez’s contract. Ramirez, 28, is still owed about $6 million of his $15-million salary this year. He will earn $15.5 million next year and $16 million in 2014, the final year of his contract.

The last time the Dodgers made a trade of this magnitude was in 2008, when they acquired another Ramirez -- Manny Ramirez – from the Boston Red Sox at the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The Dodgers reached the first of two consecutive National League Championship Series that year."

It was suggested that Hanley may be traded back to the Red Sox for the past week, read HERE. I'm glad that didn't happen.
