INFIELDER ILDEMARO VARGAS ADDED BY ARIZONA
The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired infielder Ildemaro Vargas from the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash.
What does it give the Arizona Diamondbacks
The Diamondbacks are replacing one infielder (Domingo Leyba, who was designated for assignment) with another in Vargas. The 29-year-old Vargas will provide infield depth for Arizona.
What does it give the Pittsburgh Pirates
The Pirates recently designated Vargas for assignment, so they were at least able to get back some cash for his services. He made only seven appearances (13 at-bats) with Pittsburgh this year.
There is no fantasy impact here, as Vargas will mostly serve a depth role off the Diamondbacks' bench.
