Steve Gilbert lays out the top 5 with this in mind; “The rules are the player had to have some real history with the D-backs, and he gets credit for his entire career, not just his time in Arizona. Also, he has to be retired — so, no Paul Goldschmidt or Zack Greinke.”
Among the external candidates, Diamondbacks assistant general manager Jared Porter seems like a good fit for what the Cubs will need to do. He and fellow Arizona AGM Amiel Sawdaye were finalists for the GM job in Anaheim and both received a mention in Sahadev Sharma’s piece for The Athletic about how Hoyer can move forward as the decision-maker, but Porter was in heavier rotation for pretty obvious reasons.
CBS Sports lays out the top 5 and blurb 6 through 10.
Washington will be the first big league organization outside of Arizona for the 30-year-old Tomas, who came to the Major Leagues amid considerable fanfare after defecting from Cuba in 2014.

Will Yasmany Tomas make The Nationals opening day roster?

He will be cut before opening day
