The Arizona Diamondbacks decided to move away from one of their pillars on the list near the end of the MLB trading deadline on Monday.
The team also traded closer and Archie Bradley’s favorite with the Cincinnati Reds, the D-backs announced.
The Reds send OF Stuart Fairchild, LF Josh VanMeter and monetary considerations in exchange for Bradley.
Bradley is eligible for arbitration in 2021 and a free agent in 2022.
In 10 games this season, Bradley recorded six saves with seven chances. He has a win and a 4.22 ERA.
Bradley is the lone D-back with a rescue in 2020. Relievers Andrew Chaffin and Hector Rondon have three arrests each.
After taking a closer look at Greg Holland last season, Bradley listed 18 career saves in 21 opportunities. From the moment he took on the closer role on July 30 until the end of the year, Bradley posted a 2.10 ERA over 25.2 passes (25 games).
Bradley began his D-backing career as a starter, going 10-12 in 34 starts from 2015-16 before moving into the bull. He put his career high in strikes in 2016 with 143. Bradley was considered the top 10 prospect by the MLB Pipeline in 2014.
Fairchild, second round in 2017 after the forest, was 11th in the Reds.
He played in both Double-A and High A last season. As a member of Chattanooga Lookouts in 2019, Fairchild averaged .275 from the record to go along with four homers, 42 hits and 17 RBIs. The 24-year-old man has walked 19 times.
VanMeter has played in 14 games this season for the Reds. He has two hits in 38 appearances on the record, one of which is hosted. He walked three times and struck 16 times.
VanMeter saw 95 games with the Reds in 2019, recording 54 goals, eight home runs, 23 RBIs and 29 walks. He finished the year with .237 average watts.
The D-backs made four deals on Monday, moving Bradley, OF Starling Marte, relieving Andrew Chafin and starting pitcher Robbie Ray.
