Reds traded Didi and moved Hamilton to CF, tells you how highly they think of Cozart.
"The guy I think could be really good in center is Adam Dunn. If someone asked me if Dunn could be a center fielder for the next 10 years, if he started working on it, no one could explain to me why he couldnít do it." - Brad Kullman
Looks like the ARI-CLE part of the deal took an hour or so more to finalize:
8:12pm: The Diamondbacks announced that they have acquired shortstop Didi Gregorius, left-handed pitcher Tony Sipp, and first baseman Lars Anderson from the Indians in exchange for right-handed pitchers Trevor Bauer, Matt Albers and Bryan Shaw.

With each passing day, the holes on this team continue to disappear.

#Reds call Choo a center fielder in their announcement of the deal.
The Reds got an impact bat for Gregorius and a guy who was practically waiver fodder given his 2012 performance. I like it.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
