Angels Acquire RHP Barry Enright From Diamondbacks

On Monday, the Los Angeles Angels announced a trade. While far from a blockbuster deal prior to the trade deadline, this could still be a beneficial transaction for the future of the Angels franchise. General manager Jerry Dipoto announced that the Angels had traded for Barry Enright from the Arizona Diamondbacks organization in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

From the press release:

Enright, 26, has spent the 2012 campaign with the triple-A Reno Aces of the Pacific Coast League. In 21 starts, he is 8-6 with one complete game and a 5.87 ERA (110.1 IP - 72 ER). In 2011, the 6'3" 220-pound Enright appeared with the Aces as well as with the Diamondbacks. He made seven starts with Arizona (1-4, 7.41 ERA) and appeared in 21 games (21 starts) with Reno (9-5, 5.21 ERA).

The Angels might be viewing Enright as an insurance arm in case Ervin Santana or Jerome Williams are unable to get back on the right track. Never a bad idea to have another starter in the mix.

Enright will be assigned to Triple-A Salt Lake.
