SAN FRANCISCO -- The Los Angeles Dogers have acquired infielder Hanley Ramirez from the Miami Marlins, according to multiple reports.

Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports first tweeted the news and it was confirmed by multiple national baseball reporters.

The Dodgers will reportedly be responsible for Ramirez's remaining contract of over 35 million for the next two-plus seasons. Miami will receive young starter Nathan Eovaldi and minor leaguer Scott McGough. Los Angeles will also receive reliever Randy Choate in the deal.

Both the Giants and A's were mentioned as potential destinations for Ramirez. However, if Miami was looking for a trade partner that would assume all of the money on Ramirez's contract, it's safe to assume that left both Bay Area teams out of the running.

The Dodgers arrive in San Francisco for a three-game series that starts on Friday and currently trail the Giants by 2.5 games in the N.L. West.
