Diamondbacks decline LaRoche option

The Diamondbacks announced this afternoon that they will not be picking up Adam LaRoche's $7.5 million option for next season. LaRoche put up a pretty solid season for the Diamondbacks last year, hitting 25 home runs with a career high 100 RBIs and some solid defense at first base, though he did put up his lowest OPS+ since 2005.

With the question of LaRoche resolved, we're left with one more position to consider for the off-season- will we see him replaced at first base by a free agent like Paul Konerko, or will Brandon Allen be giving a shot at the position next season? If Allen is put back at first, it then means we need to figure out who will be playing in left field next year.

Rough week for LaRoche, first the team he rejected an offer last off season from wins the World Series, and then his option isn't picked up...
