Marlins Acquire Jorge Julio

According to Baseball Digest Daily, the Diamondbacks traded reliever Jorge Julio and cash to the Marlins for Yusmeiro Petit today.  Fantasy leaguers, get on it.  The team confirmed that he'll slide right into the closer role.

Pretty good return for Arizona; Petit was the main piece in the Carlos Delgado trade last winter.  Petit put up some excellent numbers in Double A in '05 but scouts weren't enamored with his stuff.  Sure enough, his deception wasn't enough at Triple A last year and his strikeout rate dropped significantly.
