Apparently the A's have sent Sam Demel to the Diamondbacks in exchange for Conor Jackson and cash.

 

Jackson is 28 and has hit .238/.326/.331 this year in 42 games for Arizona.  According to Cots, Jackson is making $3.1 Million this season in his second year of arbitration.

 

In 22 games for Triple-A Sacramento, Demel was 2-0 with 6 saves, a 1.28 ERA, and 1.08 WHIP.  Many at AN expected him to be called up in place of Tyson Ross who should be in Sacramento starting every 5th day.

 

I'm kinda scratching my head at this one.
