The Arizona Diamondbacks acquired infielder Diego Castillo from the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday in exchange for minor league right-hander Scott Randall.
Castillo, 25, made his major league debut last season and batted .206 with 11 homers and 29 RBIs in 96 games.
He started 30 games for the Pirates at shortstop, 18 at second base, 18 in right field and three at first base.
Randall, 24, was a seventh-round pick by Arizona in 2021 and went 6-7 with a 3.82 ERA in 21 starts last season at Class-A Hillsboro. He struck out 104 batters in 108 1/3 innings.
The Diamondbacks designated right-hander Taylor Widener for assignment in a corresponding transaction.
Widener, 28, was 0-1 with a 3.63 ERA in 14 relief appearances last season for Arizona.
