The Cleveland Indians acquired pitching, the Cincinnati Reds upgraded their outfield, and the Arizona Diamondbacks got a shortstop in a three-team trade Tuesday night. Cleveland emerged with right-handers Trevor Bauer, Matt Albers and Bryan Shaw as well as outfielder Drew Stubbs. Cincinnati got outfielder Shin-Soo Choo, infielder Jason Donald and cash, while Arizona emerged with shortstop Didi Gregorius, infielder Lars Anderson and left-hander Tony Sipp. Multiple media reports indicated that the Diamondbacks sought Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, but they instead got Gregorius to fill the position. Gregorius, 22, made his major league debut with the Reds in September, and he went 6-for-20 (.300) in eight major league games. In 129 games between Double-A and Triple-A this year, he hit .265 with a .324 on-base percentage, seven homers and 54 RBI. Choo, 30, is the key piece for the Reds, who likely will make him their center fielder and leadoff man. His 2012 stats with Indians were fairly representative of his major league career, as he hit .283 with an impressive .373 on-base percentage, 16 homers, 67 RBI and 21 stolen bases. Choo, who made $4.9 million last season, is arbitration-eligible this winter. Bauer, 21, was selected third overall by the Diamondbacks in the 2011 draft. In 22 minor league starts last season, he went 12-2 with a 2.42 ERA. He also made four starts for Arizona, finishing 1-2 with a 6.06 ERA.
