Left-hander Jake Diekman was traded from the Phillies to the Rangers in an eight-player deal.
Diekman has had a rough year, with his always shaky control going from bad to worse. Still, he has one of the best arms of any left-handed reliever in the game, which explains how he's struck out 225 batters in 173 1/3 innings as a major leaguer. The Rangers will ask for less and potentially get more out of him than the Phillies did. Plus, he's under control through 2018. Jul 31 - 12:26 PM
