SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks sent infielder Brandon Drury to the New York Yankees and received outfielder Steven Souza Jr. from the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-team trade Tuesday that included five players plus two to be named later.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports first tweeted about the deal, saying that the Rays were getting second base prospect Nick Solak from the Yankees.

Souza hit.239 with 30 homers and 78 RBI in 148 games a year ago with Tampa Bay.

Widener, 23, went 7-8 with a 3.39 ERA in 27 starts for high Class A Tampa previous year.

Souza struck out more last season compared to 2016, but he also walked 47 more times and that translated into an above-average on-base percentage for a power hitter (.351). The 23-year-old right-hander finished the 2017 season in High-A ball. He made his debut in 2014 with the Washington Nationals, the team that selected him in the third round of the 2007 amateur draft.

Souza makes $3.5 million in 2018 and has three years of team control remaining.

Drury will likely start the season as either the starting third or second baseman.

Drury, 25, spent three years with the D-backs. He's 23, and last season he pitched in the High-A Florida State League. Taylor Widener and Nick Solak are prospects, but they are not close to participating in the bigs and they're coming from areas of depth.

MLB Pipeline ranked Solak as the eighth-best prospect in the Yankees' system and the fifth-best second base prospect in baseball, praising him for his ability to hit line drives as well as his speed. In four starts and eight overall appearances, the left-hander was 2-3 with a 5.96 ERA.
