Diamondbacks optioned RHP Dominic Leone to Double-A Mobile.

Diamondbacks acquired RHP Dominic Leone, C Welington Castillo, INF Jack Reinheimer and OF Gabby Guerrero from the Mariners for OF Mark Trumbo and LHP Vidal Nuno.

Leone has had a rough start to 2015, but the right-hander posted a 2.17 ERA and 70/25 K/BB ratio over 66 1/3 innings last season with the Mariners. Still just 23 years old, Leone could immediately join the mix for the closer job in the Diamondbacks' beleaguered bullpen.
