The Miami Marlins acquired minor league third baseman Yordy Cabrera from the Oakland A's and sent reliever Heath Bell and cash to the Arizona Diamondbacks, the team announced Saturday.

The Athletics received Diamondbacks outfielder Chris Young in the deal. The A's also sent middle infielder Cliff Pennington to Arizona.

Bell signed a three-year, $27 million contract with the Marlins in December 2011. In May, Bell was demoted by manager Ozzie Guillen and had an ERA of over 10 for the first part of the season. Arizona is picking up $13 million of the remaining $21 million on Bell's contract.

Bell pitched in 73 games in 2012, finishing with a 4-5 record and a 5.09 ERA.
