      Phil Gosselin hits inside-the-park homer as D-Backs top Rockies on Thursday

      Diamondbacks infielder Phil Gosselin went 2 for 4 with an inside-the-park home run and two runs scored in a win over the Rockies on Thursday. Gosselin has been a nice player for the snakes this season, as he sits at an impressive .309 average. The problem with Gosselin is that it's an empty batting average. He has just three homers, 14 RBI and two steals in his 41 games played. With the Diamondbacks being unsure of Jake Lamb for third base for the future, Gosselin may steal the job from him going into next season.

      Diamondbacks, Braves announce three-player deal on Saturday

      The Diamondbacks announced that they have dealt right-hander Bronson Arroyo and Touki Toussaint (their No. 5 prospect) to the Braves in a three-player deal on Saturday. In exchange, the Braves will be sending infielder Phil Gosselin to the Diamondbacks. Arroyo made 14 starts for Arizona in 2014 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He has yet to pitch this year, and is not expected back until at least August. The Braves will take on the entirety of Arroyo's contract, which includes $9.5 million for this year, and a $4.5 million buyout on a $13 million option for 2016, per Toussaint was a first-round draft pick (16th overall) by the Diamondbacks in 2014. The right-hander has been pitching with Class A Kane County this year, posting a 3.69 ERA through seven starts. Meanwhile, Gosselin underwent surgery to repare a fractured thumb in May. He is currently on the disabled list and holds a .325 batting average in 40 at-bats this year. The Diamondbacks seem satisfied with the current state of their pitching corps, allowing them to deal away Toussaint in the deal. "We are getting some good pitching from our young rotation and that's the direction we are going to go," D-Backs general manager Dave Stewart said.
