Tomas is not part of the Diamondbacks' 60-man player pool, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Tomas was considered to be in the mix for at-bats as the designated hitter for Arizona, but he was left off the pool because of his similarities with fellow slugger Kevin Cron, who is part of the pool, per Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen. The decision means the 30-year-old Tomas, who is in the final year of a six-year, $68.5 million deal, will enter free agency without a chance to increase his marketability through his play on the field.
