The Arizona Diamondbacks' active offseason continued Saturday, as the team traded a starting pitcher and second baseman to the Milwaukee Brewers for a speedy infielder.

The D-backs dealt right-handed pitcher Chase Anderson, second baseman Aaron Hill and minor league shortstop Isan Diaz to the Brewers in exchange for shortstop Jean Segura, minor league pitcher Tyler Wagner and cash considerations, the D-backs announced Saturday.

Segura had been a three-year starter for the Brewers. The 25-year-old from the Dominican Republic hit .257 with 57 runs, 50 RBI and 25 stolen bases last season. 

Hill, whom the D-backs acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays in 2011, hit .230 last season, his worst single-season batting average with the team. The 33-year-old hit six home runs with 39 RBI in 116 games in 2015.

Anderson started 48 games for the D-backs during the last two seasons. In 2015, the 28-year-old went 6-6 with a 4.30 ERA in 27 starts. 

The D-backs made major news in December when they signed star free-agent pitcher Zack Greinke to a record deal, and later traded for Atlanta Braves ace Shelby Miller.
