The Indians acquired outfielder Jason Kubel from the Diamondbacks on Friday for a player to be named later and $200,000. That player to be named later is pitcher Matt Langwell, tweets Nick Piecoro.

Langwell, 27, made his Major League debut on June 2 with the Indians. He allowed one run in one and one-third innings. He would make four more appearances before going back to Triple-A Columbus. Overall, he has a 2.24 ERA with Columbus, striking out 52 and walking 19 in 60.1 innings of work.

Kubel, designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on August 27, made his Indians debut today against the Tigers, going 1-for-3 with a walk. The Diamondbacks had been using him infrequently, mostly as a pinch-hitter as he has been struggling at the plate this year.

    So I guess this trade has become more fair for the D-backs then…
