Glaus goes to Toronto, Batista returns to Arizona with Orlando Hudson along for the ride
by Bob Timmermann
I could wait all day for this trade to become official, but I'm sick and I might fall asleep. But it looks the Blue Jays-Diamondbacks deal is all done except for the press conference.
As part of contract concessions, Glaus was excused from having to refer to Vernon Wells as a "centre fielder". Glaus is also allowed to go to the bathroom instead of the washroom.
Batista is expected to return to a starting pitcher role in Arizona. Hudson will move Craig Counsell from second base to shortstop. Chad Tracy moves over to third base and Shawn Green moves back to right field from center. Not that there is a center fielder at the moment for Arizona.
