The deal was one of two trades announced by the Diamondbacks between the two teams Friday. The Diamondbacks announced that pitcher Eury De La Rosa was designated for assignment in a related move.

Miley, 28, went 8-12 with a 4.34 ERA and 183:75 K:BB ratio in 201 1/3 innings in 2014. He's set to reach free agency after the 2017 season but will slide into Boston's new-look rotation for 2015.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cespedes is in the final year of a four-year, $36 million contract, while Porcello is in his final year of arbitration.

The 29-year-old Cespedes has a .263 average, .464 slugging percentage and .780 OPS in 416 games over three MLB seasons. Porcello, who won a career-high 15 games and had a career-low 3.43 ERA in 2014, is 76-63 with a 4.30 ERA in six MLB seasons.

Angels acquire Josh Rutledge from Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) The Angels acquired infielder Josh Rutledge from the Rockies in exchange for pitcher Jairo Diaz, the Rockies announced Wednesday.

Rutledge has spent three seasons in the majors and hit .269/.323/.405 with four home runs and 33 RBI in 309 at-bats in 2014. While he proved much more dangerous against lefthanders last season, posting a .309/.371/.469 line in 81 at-bats against southpaws, he's delivered virtually identical splits against lefties and righties in his career. Where he's struggled is away from Coors Field, hitting just .230/.274/.354 with eight home runs and 36 RBI in 418 road at-bats in his career. Rutledge will likely compete for the starting second-base role vacated by the Howie Kendrick deal.

Diaz started 2014 in high Class A and ended the season in the majors, giving up two earned runs on four hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings while striking out eight over five appearances. He posted a 3.48 ERA and 85:20 K:BB ratio in 64 2/3 innings between high Class A Inland Empire and Double-A Arkansas.


Report: Rangers have had discussions with Sergio Santos


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2014) The Rangers have had discussions with free-agent reliever Sergio Santos , according to FoxSports.com.

Report: Nationals discussing Detwiler, Clippard with clubs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) The Nationals are talking to other clubs about Ross Detwiler and Tyler Clippard, according to FoxSports.com.

With David Robertson and Andrew Miller off the market, Clippard becomes a much more intriguing trade piece. The 29-year-old posted a 2.18 ERA over 70 1/3 innings last season. Clippard has been a workhorse over his career, tossing at least 70 innings in each of the past five seasons. He's eligible for arbitration, and will become a free-agent following 2015.

Detwiler posted a 4.00 ERA out of the bullpen last season. He has experience as a starter, but likely won't reprise that role if he remains with the Nationas. Detwiler, 28, is also eligible for arbitration, and would become a free-agent following the season.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
