Diamondbacks acquire Aaron Heilman

The Diamondbacks have acquired right hander Aaron Heilman from the Cubs in exchange for two minor leaguers. Heilman, an arbitration eligible, likely would have been non-tendered if a trade could not be worked out.

The two minor leaguers, Scott Maine and Ryne White, are older prospects but could see time in Wrigley. Of the two, Maine probably has a better chance considering he is a reliever in an organization that is in need of bullpen help. If he plays well, he could find himself pitching in the big leagues.

Last season, Maine posted a 2.90 ERA in 48 appearances between AA and AAA, but had a 1.47 WHIP. He did havean impressive K/9 rate of 10.0, which is very good for a reliever.

White has not found his power since being drafted last year, a change of scenery could benefit the 23-year old.

Heilman gives the Diamondbacks a veteran arm in the bullpen, something that they missed last season.
