Arizona Diamondbacks trade Jason Kubel to Cleveland Indians for cash, minor leaguer

The Jason Kubel Era in the Valley officially came to an end Thursday night.

The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Friday they had agreed to ship the veteran outfielder and cash considerations to the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Kubel, who hit 30 home runs drove in 90 runs for the D-backs in 2012, was designated for assignment earlier this week to make room for pitcher David Holmberg.

Before being DFA'd, Kubel hit .220 with five home runs and 32 RBI in 89 games with Arizona this season.

The 31-year-old was in the final year of his two-year, $16 million contract. According to several reports, the Diamondbacks will pay the "vast majority" of the money still owed to Kubel.
