Traded catcher EINAR DIAZ and pitcher JUSTIN ECHOLS for catcher JOSH MCKINLEY and pitcher CHRIS YOUNG.

Getting anything, anything at all, for Diaz makes for a fine trade. Texas will pay $2 million of Diaz's $2.5 million salary but avoids his $400,000 buyout next year. None of the prospects has a strong chance of making the Majors. Echols and Young have similar upsides. McKinley will start in AA.
