Gaby Sanchez Trade: Marlins Trade First Baseman To Pirates For Gorkys Hernandez And A Draft Pick

The Miami Marlins made a move at the trade deadline, trading first baseman Gaby Sanchez to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Marlins receive centerfielder Gorkys Hernandez and the Pirates competitive balance draft pick. The Pirates also received minor league pitcher Kyle Kaminska in the deal.

The Marlins part way with a player who has hit .202 with three home runs and 17 RBIs. Hernandez has played in 25 games this season and has gotten only two hits in 24 at-bats. Kaminska has played most of this season for Miami's Double-A team in Jacksonville. In 31 appearances, Kaminska is 6-3 with a 5.11 ERA over 49 and one-thirds innings. He's recorded 42 strikeouts while only walking nine batters.

2012 MLB Trade Deadline: Marlins Send Hanley Ramirez To The Dodgers

The disappointing Miami Marlins continued the fire sale overnight on Wednesday. Miami shipped third baseman Hanley Ramirez to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for a pair of promising young players to restock their talent pool and start focusing on the future.

The L.A. Times reported the details while most of the country slept. The teams have yet to announce. Los Angeles acquired Ramirez and left-handed reliever Randy Choate. In exchange, they sent rookie starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and minor league pitcher Scott McGough.

Eovaldi is the key to the deal for the Marlins, who shipped Anibel Sanchez to Detroit on Monday. Al Yellon at Baseball Nation had this to say about Eovaldi:

... the 22-year-old righthander has a 4.15 ERA and 1.473 WHIP in 10 starts for the Dodgers this season but was widely regarded as one of the top young pitchers in the Dodgers organization, skipping Triple-A and coming directly to the major leagues from Double-A.

SB Nation Tampa Bay will have more reaction to the deal throughout the day.
