At some point, the Brewers were going to get rid of shortstop Jean Segura to pave the way for top 10 MLB prospect and shortstop Orlando Arcia.

That trade came on Saturday late afternoon, as Milwaukee traded Segura and pitcher Tyler Wagner for pitcher Chase Anderson, second baseman Aaron Hill, and shortstop Isan Diaz. The Diamondbacks also sent cash considerations to cover Hill’s $12 million salary.

Anderson, 28, will be a part of the Brewers’ rotation, according to Brewers general manager David Stearns. Hill, 34, will likely start for the team in 2016, splitting time with Scooter Gennett.

“In Chase Anderson and Aaron Hill, we are adding two proven major-league contributors who will impact our team this year,” Stearns, who has now made 8 trades since coming to Milwaukee, said Saturday night.

The Brewers also landed one of Arizona’s top prospects in the 19-year old Diaz. He batted .360 with 13 HR, 51 RBI and 12 SB in 68 games at Rookie League Missoula to earn the Pioneer League MVP in 2015.

Segura, who was part of the Zack Greinke deal in 2012, had disappointing years in 2014 and 2015. In the end, he was traded to make room for Arcia, who is one of baseball’s most coveted prospects.
