PHOENIX -- The D-backs began looking to the future Tuesday when they dealt reliever Tony Pena to the White Sox in exchange for first-base prospect Brandon Allen.

"Primarily as we look at our team, our position players, and try to keep our offense moving forward, we wanted another big left-handed bat to grow with our core, ideally a first baseman," D-backs general manager Josh Byrnes said.
