Diamondbacks News

(Arizona Sports) ESPN lists D-backs as sellers come MLB trade deadline

Slightly misleading headline, as the article only uses the ESPN Insider article as a springboard for a bit deeper analysis. Takes a brief look at who we could sell, the seasons they are having, as well as a reminder of how it’s gone in the past when we’ve either bought or sold.
