Trumbo, Eaton part of three-team deal
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - The winter meetings got busy Tuesday with a three-team trade that sent slugger Mark Trumbo to Arizona, and Oakland dealt pitcher Brett Anderson to Colorado.
Halfway through the four-day swap session, the 15-foot-wide dais at the Dolphin Hotel near Walt Disney World has been used for three announcements involving player transactions - triple the total of last year's inert meetings in Nashville, Tenn.
In the big deal of the day, the Chicago White Sox acquired outfielder Adam Eaton from Arizona for left-hander Hector Santiago, and the
Diamondbacks then sent Santiago and left-hander Tyler Skaggs to the Angels for Trumbo. Arizona also will receive a player to be named or cash from each of the other teams.
