D-backs trade for INF Sergio Alcantara, claim LHP Joe Jacques

Sergio Alcantara

The National League champion Arizona Diamondbacks added infielder Sergio Alcantara in a trade with the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday and claimed left-hander Joe Jacques off waivers from the Boston Red Sox.

Alcantara, 27, was acquired for cash considerations as he joined the Diamondbacks for the fifth time. He was traded to the Diamondbacks by the Chicago Cubs for cash before the 2022 season then lost on a waiver claim to the San Diego Padres later in the season. But he returned in the same season on another waiver claim.

In three major league seasons with four clubs, Alcantara is a .209 hitter with 12 home runs and 47 RBIs. He spent last season at Triple-A in the Cubs’ organization and opened this season at Triple-A with the Pirates.

Jacques, 29, gave up a run in 1 2/3 innings of his lone outing with the Red Sox this season. In 24 appearances (one start) over two seasons for Boston, he was 2-1 with a 5.08 ERA. He was designated for assignment Friday.

Both Alcantara and Jacques were placed on the 40-man roster and assigned to Triple-A Reno.
