Well, there goes one option for first base. The Angels have traded Mark Trumbo to Arizona in a three team deal with the White Sox. Obviously Trumbo’s power plays anywhere but you have to think they would have been better served getting one of the many available outfield options.
Arizona has used five draft picks, four amateur free agents and one waiver claim to end up with Trumbo, Patrick Corbin, A.J. Schugel and a PTBNL. Most of those parts left via the Dan Haren deal.

In the course of last week’s trade deadline, a simple question came across my twitter feed:
This was referring to the Diamondbacks trading Ian Kennedy to San Diego for reliever Joe Thatcher and a minor league reliever. Let’s see if it’s true. (click to embiggen)
Arizona still has some hope to come out okay in these deals if Daniel Hudson can come back from his second torn UCL to be the same pitcher he was before. He’s only 26 this year so time is on his side. But for now, @BigMike05 is right. Joe Thatcher is the only active piece the Diamondbacks have from trading Max Scherzer to Detroit.
