Diamondbacks still looking to deal

Chris Snyder Dan Haren has been dispatched to Anaheim, but that's not likely to be the last of the news coming out of the desert this week.

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com said Monday the Diamondbacks are open to offers for at least four more players: catcher Chris Snyder, right-hander Edwin Jackson, reliever Chad Qualls and first baseman Adam LaRoche.

A report earlier in the day by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports said the Red Sox had offered reliever Ramon Ramirez to the Mets for Rod Barajas before Barajas ended up hurt. That would indicate Boston is interested in shoring up at catcher (even with Monday's return of Victor Martinez), and obviously the Diamondbacks are desperate for anything resembling an even remotely competent reliever. Would the Sox make the same deal for Snyder that they were prepared to make for Barajas?

Jackson has been connected to the Nationals, though you wonder how interested the Diamondbacks are in parting with two-fifths of their starting rotation wihin a few days.

This week could be important to interim GM Jerry DiPoto, who is considered a longshot to keep the job. Some good trades might help -- and if he can get someone to take Chad Qualls (1-4, 8.49 ERA) off their hands, he might be the Diamondbacks' employee of the month..
