PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have acquired infielder
Tony Abreu from the Dodgers to complete a trade that sent pitcher Jon Garland to Los Angeles.

The teams made the move Friday, finishing off the deal from Aug. 31.

The 24-year-old Abreu is a switch-hitter. He played in four games for Los Angeles this season. He spent most of his time in Triple-A and Double-A, hitting .312 with 11 home runs and 53 RBIs.

Abreu played career 65 games in the majors for the Dodgers, batting .270.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Abreu, the Diamondbacks designated right-handed pitcher Bobby Korecky for assignment.
