MLB Trade: Diamondbacks add a big bat, acquire JD Martinez from Tigers

MLB Trade: Diamondbacks add a big bat, acquire JD Martinez from Tigers

Pretty much every good player on the Tigers has been thrown out as a potential trade candidate this month, but Detroit made its first official move of the season Tuesday night, sending J.D. Martinez to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for three prospects.

Arriving are three prospects from the Diamondbacks, an underwhelming group headlined by 22-year-old third-baseman Dawel Lugo, who's probably two years from being major league-ready. Lugo was the fourth-ranked prospect in the Diamondbacks system, and is now hitting.282 at Double-A Jackson. Victor Martinez drove in a pair of runs, and the Tigers, who began selling ahead of the July 31 trade deadline, still managed to give fill-in starter Matt Boyd (3-5) plenty of support in his return from the minors. The seven-year veteran is hitting.305 in 57 games this season with 16 home runs, 39 RBI and an on-base percentage of.388. They hold a half-game lead over the Colorado Rockies for the top wild card spot.

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

"With the inquires he have had, this was a time to address that situation", he said.

Correa is batting.320 with 18 doubles and 20 home runs, and his 67 RBIs are second in the American League.

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Tigers are favored on the road, as they are getting odds of -110 to win. He was an All-Star Game selection in 2015. "You think about some (lineup) options the night before, then you're excited to see him walk through the door". The Tigers have won five of their last six against KC this season. Herrera left the game soon after, and Kevin McCarthy entered in relief. He gave up just four hits and one earned run while walking one and striking out two.

Outfielder Rey Fuentes was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left thumb contusion on Wednesday, opening a roster spot for Martinez.

Moss had three hits, including a home run in the third inning.
