The Los Angeles Angels are nearing completion of a three-team trade that would send Mark Trumbo to the Diamondbacks, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

The trade will send Trumbo to Arizona along with 2 prospects, while the White Sox receive outfielder Adam Eaton, and the Angels get pitchers Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago.

The 27-year old Trumbo came in second in AL Rookie of the Year voting in 2011 and was an All-Star the following season. Last year he hit 34 home runs for the Angels, a career high, but also saw his batting average drop to .234 with 184 strike outs.
