Toronto and Arizona swap 2nd basemen for the remainder of the season

The Arizona Diamondbacks traded 2nd baseman Kelly Johnson to the Toronto Blue Jays for Aaron Hill 2B and John McDonald SS Tuesday afternoon. The swap strengthens the Arizona defense for their playoff push in September. Johnson has been struggling this season on offense with a .209 batting avg. However, both Hill and McDonald are not solid hitters but rather sound defenders.
