Recently we saw the deal between the Dodgers and Marlins, which involved right-hander Mat Latos and slugger Michael Morse, put on hold after the Braves also got dragged into the deal. In the end, we had an incredible 13-player exchange amongst the three teams, resulting in a resounding shake-up of the MLB betting lines. In the deal, the Dodgers had the lion’s share of acquisitions, getting five pitchers—Mat Latos, Alex Wood, Jim Johnson, Luis Avilan, and Bronson Arroyo. On top of those pitchers, they got Michael Morse and Jose Peraza as first and second batters, respectively. The Braves walked away with Hector Olivera, Paco Rodriguez and Zachary Bird, while the Marlins received Jeff Brigham, Victor Araujo and Kevin Guzman. But the question still lingers, was this deal necessary? To answer that, let’s try to assess the underlying value in the trades and how they could influence the team’s performance in the baseball betting lines for the rest of the season and, possibly, the years to come.
