Meanwhile the Diamondbacks got back a barely above replacement level reliever and decent fielding MI with who can't hit a lick.
This trade is pretty bad for the Dbacks. They could pay a minor league reliever the minimum to do what they're paying Heath Bell $6.5MM to do.
Agree to disagree.
They moved an overrated outfielder, got a solid glove up the middle without sacrificing their defense in center. On top of that Towers added to his bullpen depth, something he has been a master at for the better part of a decade.
The A's picked up another meh bat, and the DBacks improved their "team"
