Diamondbacks Trade For Adam Dunn

It looks like the Diamondbacks aren't about to let the Dodgers steal the division my acquiring Manny Ramirez. Two of the biggest bats in Major League Baseball now reside in the NL West, and the most effective one may very well determine the division winner.

Arizona acquired Cincinnati Reds outfielder Adam Dunn, who is tied for the major league lead with 32 home runs, for three prospects.

The trade was first reported by KTAR Radio in Phoenix.
In exchange for Dunn, Cincinnati will receive minor league pitcher Dallas Burk and two other players to be named later.

Dunn is tied with the Phillies' Ryan Howard for the NL lead with his 32 homers. The White Sox's Carlos Quentin also has 32 home runs.
