The Chicago White Sox acquired OF Adam Eaton from the Arizona Diamondbacks as part of a three-team trade Tuesday, Dec. 10. The White Sox sent SP Hector Santiago to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Angels also acquired SP Tyler Skaggs from the Diamondbacks in exchange for OF Mark Trumbo.
Fantasy Tip: First and foremost, the trade of Santiago likely means Chris Sale isn't going anywhere. Eaton is a high-energy type that should fit nicely in the outfield alongside Avisail Garcia and Dayan Viciedo. Eaton loses some intrigue moving to U.S. Cellular Field, a place that will sap what's left of his already limited power stroke.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim acquired SP Tyler Skaggs from the Arizona Diamondbacks and SP Hector Santiago from the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, Dec. 10. The Angels sent OF Mark Trumbo to the Diamondbacks and OF Adam Eaton was sent from Arizona to Chicago.
Fantasy Tip: The Halos were desperate for starting rotation help, and Skaggs and Santiago should be expected to fill out the starting five for next year. Skaggs is still young and has time to develop, but his prospect hype may leave him a tad overrated. Santiago appears to be the better catch, as he's pitched much better as a starter than reliever. The move to a more friendly pitcher's environment will help both, too.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired OF Mark Trumbo from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, Dec. 10, in a three-team deal that also sent OF Adam Eaton to the Chicago White Sox and SPs Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Fantasy Tip: Trumbo's 30-homer power will play nicely in the desert, but he doesn't make enough contact to sustain a helpful batting average. It's feast or famine for him with his strikeout rate approaching 30 percent. His addition and the loss of Adam Eaton will allow Gerardo Parra to move into a starter role in center field.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Zeke Spruill will make the start against the Texas Rangers Thursday, Aug. 1.
Fantasy Tip: Spruill's start tomorrow is probably of the spot-start variety. With Ian Kennedy being shipped out, the Snakes will need another starter, though, and Tyler Skaggs is perhaps the best option at the moment. Trevor Cahill (hip) is nearing the end of his rehab assignment, too, and will re-enter the rotation, so Spruill and Skaggs are probably short-term options.
