UPDATE : The Diamondbacks will receive infielder Bobby Crosby and outfielder Ryan Church in the deal, reports Jack Magruder of FOXSportsArizona.com. Both players have no future in Arizona, so this was strictly a salary dump for Arizona. Cant blame them. -- Evan Brunell

John Perrotto of baseballprospectus.com reports via Twitter that the Pirates are taking catcher Chris Snyder off the Diamondbacks' hands, pending Major League Baseball approval of the money Arizona is sending in the deal.

The Diamondbacks have been trying to unload Snyder's contract -- he's making $4.75 million this year, set to make $5.75 million next year and is owed at least a $750,000 buyout for 2012. He's batting just .231 this season. No word on players headed Arizona's way or how much mony is changing hands, but you have to assume the D-backs are eating a lot of Snyder's salary.

Snyder will apparently become the Pirates' everyday catcher, supplanting the injured Ryan Doumit.

-- David Andriesen
