LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Los Angeles Angels, Chicago White Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a three-team trade that would send Mark Trumbo to Arizona, Adam Eaton to Chicago and pitchers Hector Santiago and Tyler Skaggs to Los Angeles.

The Diamondbacks, Angels and White Sox believe they pulled off the perfect swap: a win-win-win.

Arizona also will receive a player to be named later -- likely withheld because at least one will be exposed in Thursday's Rule 5 draft -- or cash from each of the other clubs.

In addition, the Diamondbacks have offered a one-year deal to right-hander Joba Chamberlain for close to $3 million, a source told ESPN's Buster Olney. Chamberlain was 2-1 with a 4.93 ERA for the New York Yankees last season.

Trumbo has hit more than 30 home runs in each of his past two seasons. He batted .234 with 34 home runs and 100 RBIs this past season while hitting in one of the more pitcher-friendly parks in baseball. He will play left field for the Diamondbacks and along with Paul Goldschmidt will give the team considerable right-handed power.
