The NL West champion Arizona Diamondbacks have added another front-line starter and boosted their bullpen, acquiring pitchers Trevor Cahill, Craig Breslow and cash from the Oakland Athletics.
The A's received minor league starter Jarrod Parker, outfielder Collin Cowgill and reliever Ryan Cook in Friday's trade.
D-backs general manager Kevin Towers has been committed to winning with pitching since he took the job, and it paid off in his first season. A's GM Billy Beane, meanwhile, is in rebuilding mode with the hopes that the club will be able to build a new ballpark in San Jose and move out of the rundown Oakland Coliseum in a few years.
Cahill, who in April was rewarded with a five-year contract worth $30.5 million, went 12-14 with a 4.16 ERA in 34 starts.
