Diamondbacks Acquire OF Ryan Langerhans From Mariners

The D-backs did ended up getting a player in return for trading Wily Mo Pena to the Seattle Mariners. He’s veteran outfielder Ryan Langerhans, who officially was dealt to Arizona for cash considerations.

Langerhans, 31, had been with Seattle’s Class AAA team, the Tacoma Rainiers.
He has appeared in 117 games for the Mariners over the last three seasons (2009-2011). He hit .173 (9-for-52) with three home runs in 19 games with the Mariners this season.

In 57 games with Tacoma, Langerhans was batting .313 (67-for-214) with 10 doubles, 16 home runs and 37 RBI.

Langerhans originally came up in the Atlanta Braves organization and in 2005 and 2006 was a regular starter for Atlanta. He doesn’t appear to be someone the D-backs could call up to help in the division race, but could be insurance against injuries as a proven big-leaguer.
