PHOENIX -- The D-backs acquired Minor League right-handed relief pitcher Matt Langwell from the Indians on Sunday, completing the trade the two clubs initially struck Friday that sent veteran outfielder Jason Kubel to Cleveland.
Langwell, 27, was 3-4 with a 2.24 ERA (15 earned runs in 60 1/3 innings) and 52 strikeouts in 42 appearances (one start) with Triple-A Columbus in 2013. He also appeared in five games with the Indians this season, allowing three earned runs in 5 1/3 innings.
In six Minor League seasons in the Cleveland farm system, Langwell boasts a career 2.92 ERA. The Indians selected him in the 11th round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft.
