Arizona Diamondbacks trade for Tigers slugger JD Martinez

Arizona Diamondbacks trade for Tigers slugger JD Martinez”

Arizona's fourth-best prospect, per MLB.com, Lugo is a 22-year-old infielder who for Double-A Jackson is batting.282 with 43 RBI, seven home runs and four triples.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have added a big bat to their lineup by acquiring Detroit Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez on Tuesday.

Martinez is hitting.305 with 16 home runs and 39 RBI in 57 games played for Detroit this season.

According to Baseball America neither Lugo, Alcantara or King are considered a Top 100 prospect. The Tigers nearly certainly could have found a better return elsewhere if they were willing to accept prospects only since the Diamondbacks have one of the weakest group of farm systems in the league. He is batting.279 with a.706 OPS, three home runs, 11 stolen bases and 15 doubles in 86 games in High-A ball. His contract is up at the end of the year, so he'll try to push Arizona to the playoffs before becoming a free-agent.

King, an 18-year-old shortstop with the Arizona Rookie League, is batting.261.
