PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks brought back a familiar sidearm right-hander and acquired a left-hander who happened to be just down the hall in a pair of trade deadline moves designed to bolster the bullpen.Brad Ziegler, who pitched for Arizona from 2011 to 2016 and holds several club relief records, was traded back to the Diamondbacks by Miami in exchange for minor league right-hander Tommy Eveld.Arizona also picked up left-hander Jake Diekman from the Texas Ranger for minor league pitcher Wei-Chieh Huang. It didn't take long for Diekman to show up at his new locker. He gathered his belongings from the visitor's clubhouse and accepted a Diamondbacks offer to give him a ride in the bullpen cart to his new home."They asked," he said, "and I was like 'Yeah, I don't want to carry all of my stuff."Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said the moves were made to supplement the bullpen but would not change the roles of the "big three" of Yoshihisa Hirano, Archie Bradley and closer Brad B...

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Boston Red Sox enhanced their thin starting rotation for a playoff run, obtaining right-hander Nathan Eovaldi from the Tampa Bay Rays in a trade for minor league lefty Jalen Beeks.Eovaldi had been scheduled to start the Rays' game against the New York Yankees on Wednesday but was scratched about two hours before game time."I assumed there was a possibility, of course, especially where I am in my career and the way my contract was for this year," Eovaldi said before leaving Tropicana Field. "I was assuming that I would be traded, but as for what team it would be, I wasn't thinking about that at all."Eovaldi can become a free agent after this season.It didn't matter to the Red Sox that Eovaldi may not be part of the team beyond 2018. He throws hard and can fill out a rotation that features Chris Sale, Rick Porcello and David Price."He's been pitching very well," Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said.
