  1. Arizona confirms. Another tweak to the bullpen for the stretch run. Potts and Sadzeck are similar relievers, but Potts is more likely to keep the ball on the ground. The price was reasonable for a rental and hopefully will work out for both teams. Thanks for the straightforward dealings, Sam.
  2. Arizona confirms. Manning is ready to help us right now, while Bauer is still a few years away. Thanks for the straightforward negotiations.
  3. Arizona confirms. We add another bullpen/swing piece for the stretch run, and beyond, in Pat Crosby. Crosby being cost-controlled for a couple more seasons makes moving a highly-rated piece like Dominguez more palatable. Though we love Dominguez' huge potential, it was so far away and our bullpen needs so much more here-and-now that we decided we had to make the move. Thanks Matt for the productive negotiations. I fully expect Dominguez to haunt us at some point, but hopefully we'll get some playoff wins to offset that while Crosby is here.
  4. Arizona sends: LF Gary Matthews III (A) San Francisco sends: RP Pasqualino Carosi (ML) Arizona approves. Another move to improve our bullpen for the stretch run. Carosi hopefully will make the most of the change of scenery in the remainder of his walk year. We liked Matthews' potential, but we have other outfielders waiting their turn so it is worth moving him to see if Carosi can help us.
  5. Kansas City sends: RF Jason Hayward, retains 80% of contract Arizona sends: RP Jack White (AAA) Whilest celebrating 'Bobby Bonilla Day', we were informed of an injury to our right fielder -- following a series where RF Hayward went 6-9 against us -- so we immediately made an offer for him. As a rental Hayward fits well for us. While P Jack White has potential, he's not ready to help us this season so he was the price we were willing to pay. Thanks to Chappy for the quick and easy negotiations.
  6. Arizona confirms. Arizona addresses a need in the bullpen, at the cost of one of its top bullpen prospects. Lockwood might come back to haunt us, but we feel that Torres can help us now and has a few years of team control remaining as well. Thanks for the straightforward negotiations, Chappy.
  7. Arizona trades: SP Jarrod Parker (ML DFA) retaining 100% salary Seattle trades: P Graham Mertz (A- Everett) Parker just didn't have it for us; we're better off giving others a chance at this point. Hopefully the coaches in Seattle can get through to him. In return, we get a promising rookie pitcher with the potential to help us out in a few years. Thanks and good luck, Soze.
  8. Chicago (AL) sends ... SP Ethan Hankins (A+) SP Jarrod Parker (ML) Arizona sends ... RP Dawrin Frias (ML) RP Matthew Summers (ML) SP Alfred Johnson (A) C Josh Breaux (R) Arizona clears some space in a crowded bullpen and gains a prospect in Hankins who could help us down the road. Really liked what we saw in Frias last year, but someone had to go eventually so might as well get something in return. Parker was odd man out for Chicago, something of a salary relief, and could help bridge the gap for us at the back end of the rotation this year. Johnson and Breaux have potential to contribute in the future, but we have the depth to make the move. Thanks for the straightforward negotiations, Jonathan.
  9. Arizona confirms. Yeah, prospects-for-prospects are tricky. We really liked Ellis' versatility but we too have others who hopefully can fill that role when called upon. Moving older prospects for younger ones made sense for us, given that so many of our prospects will come of age in the next year or two. Thanks Matt for the thoughtful negotiations.
  10. Arizona confirms. We really like the upside of all three of the players heading to Tampa Bay, but gaining a solid major league outfielder in Carroll Curtis in return hopefully makes us a better team in the short term.
  11. Arizona requests ... Avg L: 1.15 Avg R: 1.15 2B: 1.05 current 3B: 1.12 current HR L: 1.15 HR R: 1.15
  12. Arizona trades: SP Michael Wacha (ML) LF Brent Bowman (AAA) Cincinnati trades: CF Bill Harrison (R-Billings) SS Jake McClure (R-Goodyear) A difficult move for both sides, but the potential to help both teams is clearly there. Wacha and Bowman jump into a pennant race with Cincinnati, while we get a solid prospect in Harrison and a lottery ticket in McClure. Thanks for the thorough negotiations and good luck!
  13. Looking for rookie-league type prospects, not on the 40-man roster. AA 1B/3B Alex Santana AAA SP/RP Zach Rivera - lefty AAA SP/RP Jose Jose - lefty AAA RP Joel Lima ML RP/SP Erik Cordier - fan fave ML RP/SP Robert Carson - lefty ML RP/SP David Perez - groundball righty
  14. The Diamondbacks agree to sell Dwight Child's rights. We wish him all the best in the future.
