White Sox Trade Tyler Kuhn To Diamondbacks

The Chicago White Sox have traded minor league utility man Tyler Kuhn to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for cash considerations, as Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports. The 25-year-old was a 15th-round pick out of West Virginia by the White Sox in the 2008 draft.

This season, Kuhn has played second base, third base and left field for Triple-A Charlotte, hitting .273/.309/.384 with four homers in 449 plate appearances. He hit much better in 2011, though, posting a .333/.388/.446 line over 568 plate appearances split between Double-A and Triple-A.

It's unclear what Arizona intends to do with Kuhn, but he does give the team some additional flexibility, which is always useful in the National League. He will likely be assigned to the minor leagues initially.
