PHOENIX (KMOX) – Former St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa is getting a central Missouri native to play for his Arizona Diamondbacks.
LaRussa’s front office announced Sunday that Arizona made a deal for outfielder Blake Tekotte of the Chicago White Sox.
The 27-year-old outfielder grew up in Columbia, Missouri and attended Hickman High School. He played college baseball at the University of Miami.
Arizona sent cash to Chicago to complete the trade.
