- Updated: October 21, 2012
According to Joe Frisaro of MLB.com, the Miami Marlins have traded Heath Bell after only one year with the team.
The Marlins completed a three-way trade, which involved the D-backs and the A’s. The D-backs received shortstop Cliff Pennington from the A’s and with reliever Heath Bell, plus cash, from the Marlins. The A’s got outfielder Chris Young, while the Marlins got Minor League third baseman Yordy Cabrera.
According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel, the Marlins will pick up $13 million of the remaining $21 million owed to Bell through 2014.
Via Marlins.com: ”This should be a positive change for Heath and the Marlins,” Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said in a statement. “After a disappointing 2012 season, Heath gets a fresh start and this move gives us clarity as we begin our offseason roster improvement.”
In his first and only season with Miami, Bell had a record of 4-5 with a 5.09 ERA in 73 games.
As for Yordy Cabrera, he spent this whole entire season at Class A. He hit .232/.293/.332 with three home runs and 21 RBIs, but he only played 60 games due to a right hip strain.
