On August 7, 2006 — The Diamondbacks trade a pair of pitching prospects, Matt Chico and Garrett Mock, to the Nationals for veteran right-hander Livan Hernandez (9-8, 5.34). Washington had put the 31 year-old Cuban on waivers with the hopes of making a deal with any team, but Arizona blocked that option as it tries to stay in the hunt in the NL West.
Amidst criticism of his handling of pitchers due the rash of recent injuries to the team’s young arms, the Florida Marlins fire manager Jeff Torborg. Jack McKeon, who has previously managed four other clubs, becomes the franchise’s sixth skipper, taking over a 16-22 team that will catch fire under his calm leadership.
