D-backs' get lefty reliever Jake Diekman from Rangers at deadline

Diekman, 31, had registered a 3.69 ERA and 48/23 K/BB ratio in 39 innings this season with Texas.

Diamondbacks acquired LHP Jake Diekman from the Rangers for RHP Wei-Chieh Huang and a player to be named later.

A video posted to Twitter showed D. Baxter the Bobcat, Arizona's mascot, picking up Diekman in a baseball-style golf-cart, before driving him less than a minute down the hall to the Arizona clubhouse, where he met his new teammates.

"They asked", he said, "and I was like 'Yeah, I don't want to carry all of my stuff". Three relievers combined to two-hit the Diamondbacks the rest of the way, though closer Keone Kela did not pitch as his trade to the Pittsburgh Pirates was announced once the game concluded.

The 59-49 Diamondbacks enter Tuesday just a half-game behind the Dodgers for first place in the NL West.

Outside of the major leagues, the hospitality just isn't the same.

Huang, rated the Diamondbacks' 22nd-best prospect in midseason MLB.com rankings, was selected to the World Team roster for the 2015 All-Star Futures Game, pitching in that year's game at Great American Ball Park. He is 4-4 with a 3.57 ERA in seven big league seasons with Philadelphia and Texas. Arizona assumes the $2,951,613 remaining of Ziegler's $9 million salary.

In corresponding moves, the Diamondbacks designated lefty Jorge De La Rosa for assignment and moved right-hander Shelby Miller to the 60-day disabled list.

Diekman was the fourth pitcher traded by the Rangers in the past two weeks.
