D’Backs Retain Skelton, Deal Brooks Brown

According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, the Diamondbacks have managed to keep Rule 5 pick James Skelton.  The club dealt minor league right-hander Brooks Brown to the Tigers in order to retain the catcher's rights.

Brown, 23, finished with a 4.18 ERA in 26 starts for Double-A Mobile last season.  Skelton, also 23, hit just .150/.244/.175 in 40 at-bats this spring.
