Chris Young, Heath Bell, Money
A's get production in center field for a year, Diamondbacks get a closer and a backup infielder, and the Miami Marlins get salary relief.
The prospect doesn't matter.
You may think Chris Young is done, but he's had bad batting average luck. Similarly, Heath Bell has had bad ERA luck, but he's not the killer he once was. Good luck the year before masked decline and got him paid.
