D-backs acquire Trumbo from Angels

The SportsXchange

The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired slugging outfielder Mark Trumbo from the California Angels in a three-team trade Tuesday that also involved the Chicago White Sox.

Outfielder Adam Eaton will move to the White Sox and pitchers Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs to the Angels.

Arizona also will reportedly receive two players to be named later.

Trumbo has hit more than 30 home runs in each of his past two seasons. He batted .234 with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs last season. He will play left field for the Diamondbacks.

Eaton went into last season with the Diamondbacks as a Rookie of the Year candidate but missed most of the season with a knee injury. Eaton batted .252 with a .314 on-base percentage and 44 runs scored.

The Angels acquired the pitching depth they have been seeking after finishing last season 24th in the major leagues in ERA.

Santiago, 25, was 4-9 with a 3.56 ERA for the White Sox last season. He walked 72 batters in 149 innings.

Skaggs, a 22-year old left-hander, is a former first-round pick of the Angels. He spent most of last season at Triple-A and went 2-3 with a 5.12 ERA in seven starts for the Diamondbacks.
