The Diamondbacks have acquired outfielder Blake Tekotte from the White Sox in exchange for cash considerations, J.J. Stankevitz of CSN Chicago reports. Tekotte will report to Triple-A Reno. In a related move, the White Sox promoted 2009 first round pick Jared Mitchell to Triple-A Charlotte.

Tekotte hasn’t played in the majors this season. In 318 plate appearances with Charlotte, the 27-year-old posted a .251/.324/.438 line with 11 home runs and 35 RBI.

Mitchell, 25, began the season at Triple-A but struggled, striking out in exactly half of his 156 at-bats. He was demoted to Double-A Birmingham and had more success, slashing .299/.367/.561 with 10 home runs and 20 RBI.

    That was like a fantasy-league shame payment – sorry we fleeced you out of Adam Eaton. Here’s something to help ease the pain.

      Kevin Towers is used to getting fleeced on nearly every trade.

        More like he’s used to getting skinned and tanned. Context, context.
