Victor Martinez drove in a pair of runs, and the Tigers, who began selling ahead of the July 31 trade deadline, still managed to give fill-in starter Matt Boyd (3-5) plenty of support in his return from the minors. He has a very strong and accurate arm from different angles, showing an ability to make plays on the run.

Avila got an offer from the Diamondbacks - minor league infielders Dawel Lugo, Sergio Alcantara and Jose King - he felt was acceptable, and made a decision to pull the trigger on the first major deal in what looks to be a trade-deadline dismantling.

Martinez clubbed 83 homers in his previous three seasons with Detroit, establishing career highs with 38 blasts and 102 RBIs in 2015.

But those details only came to light after Martinez was inundated with text messages from friends and family - "Mom texted", he said with a slight smile - asking where he had been traded. "It doesn't hit you until they tell you", Martinez said. None is regarded as a Tier 1 prospect and one is a Tier 2 prospect. He is expected to start for the D-Backs in left field, replacing the injured Yasmany Tomas.

Perisic named in Inter tour squad despite Manchester United links
Mourinho still wants two more signings and Sportsmail understands a £44million deal for Perisic has nearly been agreed. And after adding Perisic to the list, it seems he is ready to battle with bitter rivals Liverpool to sign Naby Keita.

"That wasn't the sole need for acquiring (him)", Hazen said. Kansas City trails the Indians by two games in the Central, and the Tigers are five games out, so the series finale will be an important game.

Because of his long-standing relationship with Avila, then the assistant general manager, the team took a chance on him after the Houston Astros released him before the 2014 season, and it paid giant dividends. The Tigers also got INF Sergio Alcantara and INF Jose King as they restocked their farm system with position players.

Martinez should make a big impact in the middle of that order. While getting Martinez can't be expected to help the Diamondbacks avoid the coin-toss Wild Card game, it seems that maybe they were anxious about just making it there.

"With the inquires he have had, this was a time to address that situation", he said. As close to family as you can get in baseball. "I don't even know how to express it".
