MILWAUKEE — The Arizona Diamondbacks have traded right-handed starter Chase Anderson and infielder Aaron Hill to the Milwaukee Brewers for shortstop Jean Segura and righty Tyler Wagner.

The Brewers also got minor league shortstop Isan Diaz and cash in the deal announced Saturday.

Anderson, 28, was 6-6 with a 4.30 ERA in 27 starts last season. Hill has played 11 seasons in the majors and has hit more than 25 home runs three times, but he batted just .238 with 16 homers combined over the last two seasons.

Segura, 25, hit .257 with six homers, 50 RBI and 25 steals last season. He was an NL All-Star in 2013.

Wagner made his major league debut last season. The 25-year-old was 0-2 with a 7.24 ERA in three starts.

Diaz, 19, hit .360 with 13 home runs and 51 RBI at rookie level Missoula. He was the Pioneer League MVP.

BRAVES: Freddie Freeman’s slow-healing right wrist finally is pain-free, allowing the first baseman to take swings on back-to-back days this week for the first time this offseason.

Freeman said at the Braves’ FanFest that the wrist never fully recovered last season after he spent five weeks on the disabled list in June and July. He said a turning point came when he had an injection in the wrist on Dec. 20.

“It was a tough offseason, the first couple months to try to get healthy, but I am 100 percent healthy now,” said Freeman, who also spent two weeks on the DL with a right oblique injury.

Freeman is Atlanta’s only remaining starting position player from its last NL East champion team in 2013. He hit a career-best .319 with 23 homers and 109 RBI on that team that won 96 games.

General Manager John Coppolella has said Freeman, 26, won’t be traded. Despite his injuries, Freeman hit .276 with 18 homers and 66 RBI in 118 games last season.

ROYALS: Kansas City signed outfielder Travis Snider to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to spring training.

Snider, who turns 28 on Tuesday, played for the Orioles and Pirates last season and hit .232 with four homers and 28 RBI.
