PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have traded left-hander Joe Saunders to the Baltimore Orioles for right-handed reliever Matt Lindstrom and cash considerations or a player to be named later.
Saunders, who was scheduled to start Sunday against San Diego, was 6-10 with a 4.22 ERA in 21 starts with Arizona this season. He won 12 games last season while helping the Diamondbacks win their first NL West title since 2007.
Lindstrom went 1-0 with a 2.72 ERA in 34 appearances with the Orioles this season. He has held right-handers to a .207 average and scoreless in 10 of his past 11 outings.
Lindstrom has played six major league seasons with Miami, Houston, Colorado and Baltimore.
