The Los Angeles Dodgers' reported acquisition of Mat Latos and Michael Morse from the Miami Marlins this morning could bring with it yet another starting pitcher and a relieveer if a reported three-way agreement with the Atlanta Braves is completed.

Per Rosenthal, there is no word just yet on which Dodgers prospects will be shipped off if the agreement comes to fruition:

Wood, 24, is 7-6 this year with a 3.54 and 1.41 WHIP. The 6-4 lefty projects to be a career #2 or #3 starter according to most scouting outlets and could very well be a centerpiece of a potential Cole Hamels deal before Friday's deadline.

Johnson, 32, has made a major turnaround after a disastrous 2014 campaign, pitching to a 2.25 ERA in 48 innings (49 appearances) for the Braves this year. He could also be marked as a trade chip in the Dodgers' pursuit of either Hamels or Tigers ace David Price.
