Chris Young was a 20-20 member a few times.
To the A's: OF Chris Young
Young is 29 years old. Outside of his rookie year and an injury-filled 2012, Young has played in at least 85 percent of games in a season, so he's particularly healthy.
He's locked down over 100 hits in four out of seven seasons, and in a fifth, he missed by just eight hits. Annually, Young hits double-digit home runs and steals double-digit bases. His career .239 batting average isn't great, but his versatility as both a runner and power hitter makes him incredibly valuable.
His wins above replacement (WAR) in the last three years have been 5.2, 4.6 and 1.9 (and that was in a slumping year).
To the Diamondbacks: IF Cliff Pennington and RP Heath Bell
Bell is the marquee name in the deal. He's a 35-year-old reliever who struggled mightily in 2012. To be fair, in the three years prior, Bell nailed down 40-plus saves each season.
Bell's issue has been consistency. He was mostly up and down until 2009, when he put together three wonderful years. Then he regressed this season, earning a 5.09 ERA and saving just 19 games after being removed from closer duties a time or two.
This begs the question of whether he can rediscover his form in his mid-30s. If he can, then this is a great trade for Arizona, especially since he returns to the NL West, where he dominated.
Then there's Cliff Pennington.
The 28-year-old second baseman began the season as Oakland's shortstop before losing his position. He took over for Jemile Weeks after Weeks was sent down to the minors.
Pennington is very much a "what you see is what you get" kind of guy. He's consistently a mid-.200 hitter with above-average speed, below-average power and great glove work. With Stephen Drew up the middle, Pennington shined while turning double plays.
But 2012 wasn't great.
In addition to shifting in the defensive alignment, he dropped to the No. 9 spot in the lineup as well. There, he hit .215 on the season. He's not the greatest second baseman of all-time, but he's efficient enough.
To the Marlins: IF Yordy Cabrera
Cabrera is just 22 years old and has yet to play in Double-A baseball. In the low minors, he's hit a combined .230 in 166 games.
Though he stole 23 bases in 2011, he stole just two in 2012. He appears to lack power, as he's hit a total of nine home runs in his Single-A career. Cabrera is young, so the jury is definitely still out.
