Marlins acquired 2B Dee Gordon, RHP Dan Haren, INF Miguel Rojas and a PTBN or cash from the Dodgers for LHP Andrew Heaney, INF-OF Enrique Hernandez, C Austin Barnes and RHP Chris Hatcher.
Not only are the Dodgers paying all of Haren's $10 million salary, but they're reportedly covering Gordon's as well. As a first-time arbitration-eligible player, he's likely due $2 million-$3 million next season. The Marlins will pencil him right in as their second baseman and leadoff hitter and hope that he recaptures the form that made him a 2014 All-Star. He wasn't nearly as effective in the second half, which is what prompted the Dodgers to make this swap. For fantasy purposes, Gordon still projects as a top-notch second baseman. In the real world, we'd say this trade pretty much reeks for Miami. Dec 11 - 2:00 AM

Date:

The Dodgers and Marlins have agreed on a trade that will send Dee Gordon to the Marlins, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News.

Martino said the Dodgers will get Marlins top prospect Andrew Heaney in the deal, and there is talk that Dan Haren may also be heading east as part of the trade. Gordon is just 26 years old and had 64 steals in 2014. He'll presumably play second base and bat atop a Marlins lineup that is creeping toward respectability.

Buster Olney of ESPN.com reports the Marlins and Dodgers are in "serious talks" about a trade that would send Dee Gordon to the Marlins for Andrew Heaney.

It's unclear if it would be a straight one-for-one or if other players would be involved. Such a deal would be a fascinating one involving two up-and-coming players -- obviously Gordon stole 64 bases and was an All-Star this past season, while Heaney was the Marlins' first-round pick in 2012. Stay tuned.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Dodgers are indeed shopping second baseman Dee Gordon.

Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi tried to downplay the chatter Tuesday night, but it appears that there is something to the possibility. However, the Dodgers are understandably aiming high with Gordon, who had a breakout season this year while leading the majors with 64 steals. He is under team control through 2018.
Dec 10 - 2:59 PM

Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi on Tuesday refuted a report that the team is shopping Dee Gordon.

"He's a cost-controlled, All-Star second baseman," Zaidi said. "We are not dangling him. He is our second baseman." Front office types often fib during hot stove season, but that's a pretty definitive statement from Zaidi. Gordon batted .289/.326/.378 with an MLB-leading 64 steals in 2014 and is under team control through 2018.

MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins have interest in Dee Gordon.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported earlier Tuesday that the Dodgers have told teams Gordon is available, and the speedy second baseman has apparently piqued the Marlins' interest. Gordon had a breakout season in 2014, batting .289/.326/.378 while leading the majors with 64 stolen bases, but new Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman could choose to sell high. He's also under team control through 2018.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Dodgers are telling teams that Dee Gordon is available.

Gordon is coming off a breakout season in which he batted .289/.326/.378 while leading the majors with 64 stolen bases, but his plate discipline leaves something to be desired and the Dodgers could attempt to sell high. Sherman notes that the Dodgers could replace him with Alex Guerrero and/or Erisbel Arrueberruena at second base. It's worth noting that they also have a need for a shortstop at the moment.
Dec 9 - 5:33 PM

Dee Gordon (hip) fully expects to play in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday against the Cardinals.

Gordon missed the final game of the regular season with irritation in his right hip, but he went through a full workout on Tuesday afternoon and felt fine. The speedy second baseman batted .289/.326/.378 with 64 stolen bases in 148 games this summer.
Sep 30 - 4:06 PM

Dee Gordon said Tuesday that his right hip feels fine and that he has been cleared to run.

Gordon left Saturday's game with a right hip injury and sat out Sunday, but it's not a major concern. He's expected to be ready to play in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday.
Sep 30 - 3:13 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that he expected Dee Gordon (hip) to be ready to play on Friday in Game 1 of the NLDS.

Gordon exited Saturday's game and is sitting out Sunday due to a right hip injury. He underwent a precautionary MRI, but the ailment appears to be minor.
Sep 28 - 2:09 PM

Dee Gordon underwent an MRI on his right hip after leaving Saturday's game.

Gordon won't play Sunday but says he's not concerned about the hip over the long haul. It's an ailment that he's dealt with before and is evidently minor.
Sep 28 - 8:54 AM

Dee Gordon left Saturday's game against the Rockies due to irritation in his right hip.

Gordon had a similar injury earlier this season and missed three games. He was replaced at second base Saturday by Darwin Barney. The Dodgers begin NLDS play next Friday, so Gordon has time to heal.
Sep 27 - 10:46 PM

Dee Gordon departed Saturday's game versus the Rockies with an apparent leg injury.

Gordon may have tweaked something on a first-inning groundout. Darwin Barney replaced him at second base. This is bad timing for the NL West-champion Dodgers.
Sep 27 - 9:29 PM

Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored as the Dodgers beat the Rockies 7-4 on Friday.

No steals for Gordon, but two doubles is nice; he entered with just 22 in 604 at-bats this season. He was also in an 0-for-14 slump headed into this one.
Sep 27 - 2:10 AM

Dee Gordon is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday night versus the Giants.

It's only a day of rest. Justin Turner will start at second base base against Madison Bumgarner.
