JD Martinez to Diamondbacks; Immediate Reaction

The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired outfielder J.D. Martinez from the Detroit Tigers for three prospects on Tuesday.

Lugo (a 3B/SS) and Alcantara (a SS) were top-30 prospects in the Diamondbacks' minor league system, via MLB Pipeline, and King is an 18-year-old middle infielder. Lugo, a sterling defensive third baseman with a solid bat, is regarded as the Diamondbacks' No. 2 overall prospect.

As for Martinez, the Tigers hope that one day he'll return to Detroit.

Martinez was originally in Tuesday night's lineup for the Tigers, which indicates this trade came together fairly quickly.

The 29-year-old Martinez missed almost the first six weeks of the season after suffering a Lisfranc sprain in his right foot during spring training, yet was batting.305 with 16 home runs and 39 RBIs in 57 games.

Heading into Wednesday, the Diamondbacks are so far back of the Los Angeles Dodgers that catching them doesn't seem realistic.




"They were the organization that believed in me when everybody else passed".

"The timing was really, really bad", Avila said.

Castellanos added his 13th homer of the season with one out in the fifth inning. "The options are somewhat limited and you have to go with the teams that really want the guy or put forth the effort". Vogt, a two-time All-Star, is hitting.250 with four home runs and nine RBIs in 12 games for Milwaukee.

"Very hard process for me", Tigers general manager Al Avila said.

Mahtook is slashing.273/.290/.433 in 54 games this season. numberFire's models project him to record a.238 batting average in 133 plate appearances over the remainder of the year.

"We're excited. He's very capable", Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said after Arizona's 11-2 victory over the Reds. Kansas City trails the Indians by two games in the Central, and the Tigers are five games out, so the series finale will be an important game. Jason Hammel will start game three and is 4-8 with a 5.02 ERA and 81 strikeouts this season. Travis Wood took his first loss for the Royals, allowing six runs in 4.1 innings.
