The Arizona Diamondbacks and Oakland Athletics have completed a trade that will sent outfielder Chris Young to the A's in exchange of infielders Cliff Pennington and Yordy Cabrera, as well as cash considerations, the D-Backs reported on Saturday.
Young has played six seasons with Arizona. He is a player that Oakland is famous for chasing, as he is good at drawing walks and has some power. Young's best year as a major-leaguer came in 2010, when he hit .247/.341/.452 with 27 home runs while playing center field. For his career, Young is a .239/.318/.434 hitter.
Pennington just finished his fourth year. The shortstop has shown little power, hitting .239/.313/.356 in 1,748 career at bats, but is still under club control and making considerably less than Young.
