Rays get Qualls, Pirates get Snyder

The busy Diamondbacks have completed two more deals, sending ex-closer Chad Qualls to the Rays and catcher Chris Snyder to the Pirates, CBSSports.com has confirmed.

The Qualls deal was announced late Saturday morning, while the Snyder trade is still awaiting commissioner's office approval because of the amount of money that Arizona is paying the Pirates to pay part of Snyder's contract. The Diamondbacks will get a player to be named later in exchange for Qualls, and three players for Snyder.

According to reports in Arizona, pitcher D.J. Carrasco, infielder Bobby Crosby and outfielder Ryan Church will all go to the Diamondbacks as part of the trade.

Arizona dealt away its top two starting pitchers -- Dan Haren and Edwin Jackson -- earlier this week. The disappointing Diamondbacks fired their manager and general manager earlier this month, and said they would listen to offers on just about anyone other than young pitcher Ian Kennedy or young outfielder Justin Upton.

Qualls saved 24 games for the Diamondbacks last year, but he has had a terrible 2010 season, with an 8.29 ERA and a 2.000 WHIP.
