On Tuesday, the Arizona Diamondbacks landed first baseman Mark Trumbo as part of a three-team trade also involving the Los Angeles Angels and Chicago White Sox.

In addition to Trumbo and two players to be named later moving to Arizona, the trade sends Adam Eton to Chicago, and pitchers Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs to the Angels. However, the players to be named later with likely have their names withheld because they will be exposed to Thursday's Rule 5 Draft.

"Pumped to be a part of the White Sox organization! Excited to get after winning the AL Central. Thank you for this incredible opportunity," Eaton tweeted.

Although Trumbo has primarily played first base, he will be used in left field for the Diamondbacks. He also adds a significant power bat into the lineup, creating a good duo with Paul Goldschmidt.

The 27-year-old Trumbo batted .234/.294/.453 with 34 HR and 100 RBI last season. However, he also struck out 184 times with only 54 walks.

Other Notes: The Diamondbacks have reportedly offered New York Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain a one-year deal.
