LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks have traded strikeout-prone slugger Mark Reynolds to the Baltimore Orioles for two relievers.

Arizona will get right-handers David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio in Monday's deal for Reynolds, a third baseman known for his big swings.

Reynolds has averaged nearly 35 homers for the last three years. He's also struck out over 200 times in each of those seasons.
