Arizona Diamondbacks acquire outfielder JD Martinez from Detroit Tigers

Detroit Tigers

Martinez from the Tigers for third baseman Dawel Lugo and shortstops Sergio Alcantara and Jose King.

Lugo, 22, is ranked by Baseball America as the Diamondbacks #2 prospect and is hitting.282 with seven home runs & 43 RBI for AA-Jacksonville.

Martinez will be a free agent after the season and the Tigers are in a financial crunch.

Alex Gordon's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth lifted the Kansas City Royals to a 4-3 win over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday evening.

He was in the initial starting lineup Tuesday against the Royals before getting scratched when the trade was announced.

Police Gear Up For Day 4 Of Search For Missing Men
Though the property owners don't appear to be the target of the probe, their son, 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo , might be. The investigation has centered on sprawling farmland property in Solebury Township , where the search began Sunday.

Martinez missed much of the first two months of the season, but has returned with a.305 average, 16 home runs, and a.918 OPS in over 230 plate appearances. They hold a half-game lead over the Colorado Rockies for the top wild card spot. The Los Angeles Dodgers have disabused them of the notion that a National League West title is within reach by playing.753 ball since the end of April. It's just one of things where you get a taste of it, you know what it is and you want more of it.

"The timing was really, really bad", Avila said. But when you have the top rentals - and I think J.D. Martinez is the top rental bat - giving up two or three names isn't that insane.

Lower back tightness caused Martinez to leave his final game with the Tigers early on Monday night.

Norris' replacement on the big-league club, Matthew Boyd, will get another start for the Tigers Sunday in the series finale against the Minnesota Twins. The Tigers have won five of their last six against KC this season.

The Royals' win moved them to within two games of the first-place Cleveland Indians in the AL Central, helping them put off the buy-or-sell decision further despite being two games under.500. As well, nine different players recorded at least one extra-base in the game, and that also broke the existing team record by one extra-base hit. Jason Hammel will start game three and is 4-8 with a 5.02 ERA and 81 strikeouts this season.
