PHOENIX (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks are hoping a pair of deadline-day trades will pay off down the road.
They parted with a couple of popular veterans Thursday, trading outfielder Gerardo Parra to Milwaukee and third baseman Martin Prado to the New York Yankees. But the Diamondbacks received outfielder Mitch Haniger and left-hander Anthony Banda in the deal with the Brewers, and got minor league catcher Peter O'Brien in the Prado deal.
Arizona also saved money in the trades, which could provide for the rest of the season and over the winter. Prado was in the second season of a $40 million, four-year contract.
