The Diamondbacks traded left-hander Joe Saunders to the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday in exchange for reliever Matt Lindstrom, a move that frees up a rotation spot for rookie Tyler Skaggs.
Saunders has been a steady presence in the Diamondbacks rotation since he was acquired in July 2010 from the Angels as part of the Dan Haren deal. He had a a 4.22 ERA in 21 starts this season and a 3.96 ERA in 67 starts since joining the Diamondbacks.
Skaggs is perhaps the Diamondbacks’ top pitching prospect. He made his major league debut on Wednesday, giving up two runs in 6 2/3 innings to the Marlins, and the club told him that night he would be remaining with the major league team. Skaggs had a 2.87 ERA in 22 starts between Double-A and Triple-A.
