Diamondbacks' William Locante: Outrighted to Triple-A on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Will Locante has cleared waivers and been outrighted to Triple-A Reno.

Locante, an undrafted lefty reliever, spent all of 2015 pitching for Double-A Mobile where he put up a 5.79 ERA and 1.81 WHIP in 42.0 innings of work. Most of his struggles can be attributed to control issues, as he walked an abysmal 7.29 batters per nine innings. The 26-year-old will start the year working on his game in the minors.

Diamondbacks' A.J. Pollock: Agrees on two-year contract with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Pollock agreed to a two-year, $10.25 million contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday to avoid arbitration, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

Pollock is coming off arguably the best season of his four-year career after compiling 192 hits, 20 home runs, 76 RBI, and 111 runs on 157 games in 2015. Those numbers make the 28-year-old a viable option to be taken within the first two rounds of standard leagues in 2016, especially since he averaged .315 at the plate last season and tends to bat ahead of Paul Goldschmidt.

Diamondbacks' Brad Ziegler: Will remain D-backs closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Stewart announced Monday that Brad Ziegler will begin the season as the Arizona Diamondbacks ' closer, Jody Jackson of FOX Sports Arizona reports.

Bringing Tyler Clippard into the fold could have been taken as a challenge to Ziegler's gig, but the incumbent will remain in the closing role once Opening Day rolls around. In 2015, Ziegler replaced Addison Reed in May and proceeded to complete 30 saves, which he supplemented with a crisp 1.85 ERA and 0.956 WHIP. However, Ziegler's lack of heat doesn't equate to many strikeouts, as evidenced by 4.76 K/9 last season.

Diamondbacks' Brad Ziegler: Expected to remain closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brad Ziegler is expected to remain the Arizona Diamondbacks ' closer to begin the year despite the addition of Tyler Clippard on a two-year contract, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

While Ziegler does not have the swing-and-miss stuff of a prototypical closer, his ability to keep the ball on the ground and success in the closer role a year ago will likely keep him in the ninth inning to start the 2016 campaign. Clippard's signing bolsters the team's back-end depth for now and gives the Diamondbacks a quality fallback option should Ziegler's ERA return closer to his 2014 mark.

Diamondbacks' Tyler Clippard: Signs two-year contract with Diamondbacks on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Clippard signed a two-year, $12.25 million contract with the Diamondbacks on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Clippard has been one of the most consistent relievers in baseball over the past several years, most recently playing an integral part of the Mets' World Series run. That being said, the 30-year-old is pretty reliant on the flyball to get outs, which may not translate very well in a hitter's park like Chase Field. Regardless, Clippard could still push Brad Ziegler for the closer job in Arizona at some point, though Ziegler's success in the role last season may keep him in the ninth inning to start the year.
