Cubs get two prospects for reliever Heilman

The club just announced moments ago that right-hander Aaron Heilman has been traded to the Diamondbacks for two prospects: left-handed pitcher Scott Maine and first baseman Ryne White.

Maine, 24, went 4-5 with seven saves and a 2.90 ERA in 48 games between Double and Triple A last year. He’s Arizona’s sixth-round pick from 2007.

White is 23 and hit .266 with a .371 on-base percentage at Single A last year. He was the Diamondbacks’ fourth-round pick from 2008.
