Angels recalled RHP Cory Rasmus from Triple-A Salt Lake.
He'll take Mike Morin's spot in the Angels' bullpen. Rasmus had core muscle surgery in March and has been limited to just 10 appearances (including three starts) at the Triple-A level this year.
Dodgers acquired RHP Mat Latos from the Marlins in the 13-player, three-team Hector Olivera trade.
Olivera is going to the Braves along with Paco Rodriguez and Zachary Bird. Latos isn't quite a Cole Hamels, Johnny Cueto, or David Price type of catch for the Dodgers, but he boasts a 2.96 ERA and 43/9 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings since returning in mid-June from a knee injury. It might be a sneaky-good pickup for Los Angeles.
Dodgers acquired 1B Michael Morse from the Marlins in the 13-player, three-team Mat Latos trade.
Morse doesn't fit all that well on the Dodgers' current roster and it seems possible that they might turn around and designate him for assignment to clear room for some of the other players they acquired in this massive swap. Morse, 33, was batting just .214/.277/.314 in 173 plate appearances this season for Miami.
Mike Trout (wrist) is back in Thursday's lineup against the Astros.
Trout missed the previous two games due to inflammation in his left wrist, but the hope is that it won't be a lingering issue. He's back in center field Thursday with the Angels trying to avoid a sweep.
Dodgers acquired RHP Bronson Arroyo from the Braves in the 13-player, three-team Hector Olivera trade.
Atlanta acquired Arroyo from the Diamondbacks on June 20, but he'll leave the organization without throwing a single pitch in a Braves uniform. The veteran right-hander underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last July and probably isn't going to be back near full strength until late August or early September. It's a salary dump for Atlanta: Arroyo is making $9.5 million this season and carries a $4.5 million buyout on his option for 2016.
