Three-Team Deal Sends Heath Bell to Arizona, Chris Young to Oakland, Yordy Cabrera and Cliff Pennington to Miami

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Heath Bell and Cliff Pennington traded to Arizona, Chris Young to Oakland, and Yordy Cabrera to Miami in 3-team deal.

The Oakland Athletics acquired OF Chris Young from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for SS Cliff Pennington and minor leaguer Yordy Cabrera, as reported by Jane Lee of MLB.com.

Young, 29, would join a crowded Oakland outfield and may not continue his natural position of center field. He made $7 million in 2012 for Arizona, batting .231, 14 HRs, 41 RBIs, and 8 SBs in just 101 games.

Pennington, 28, played 125 games for the Athletics and made their playoff roster after hitting .215, 6 HRs, 28 RBIs, and 15 SBs for the season.

The Miami Marlins traded Heath Bell and cash to Arizona as part of a three-team deal. They received Yordy Cabrera from the DBacks after the Athletics traded him, as reported by Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald.

Arizona added Bell after signing closer, J.J. Putz to an extension and would use Bell as a bridge to Putz.

The Marlins traded Bell after signing him in 2012 to a 3-year, $27 million deal. Bell was a bust, losing his closing job after blowing eight saves with a 5.09 ERA.
