Diamondbacks Acquire RH Reliever Jon Rauch

Major League's tallest player in history, 6'11" Jon Rauch was traded to by the Nationals to the Diamondbacks today for 2B Emililo Bonifacio. The Diamondbacks were forced to shore up their bullpen after their three expected pitchers, Qualls, Lyon and Pena did not pitch well and have struggled.
