  • Diamondbacks' Matt Szczur: Inks minor-league deal

    Szczur signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Friday.

    As a part of the deal, Szczur has received an invitation to big-league camp, and he's been assigned to Triple-A Reno. He appeared in 57 games for the Padres a season ago, posting a .187/.265/.267 slash line with six RBI and three stolen bases.

  • Diamondbacks' Nick Green: Snagged by D-backs

    Green was selected by the Diamondbacks with the 12th pick in the Rule 5 draft.

    A 23-year-old righty, Green logged a 3.32 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 102 strikeouts in 132.2 innings split between High-A and Double-A in the Yankees' system. That strikeout rate suggests he lacks the stuff to start, but perhaps his fastball will tick up in the bullpen. He should be deployed in low-leverage situations.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Could play center field

    Marte could be the Diamondbacks' center fielder next season, Jack Magruder of The Sports Xchange reports.

    Marte reportedly volunteered to be the team's center fielder last season when A.J. Pollock was injured. He started a pair of games in center for the Mariners back in 2015 but has been strictly an infielder since then. If he does wind up playing a number of games in the outfield, the added positional flexibility he'd pick up in most formats would provide a boost to his fantasy value.

  • Diamondbacks' Archie Bradley: Inside track on closing job

    Manager Torey Lovullo said he's leaning towards using Bradley as his closer in 2019, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    With Brad Boxberger hitting the open market, Bradley appears to be the leading candidate to take over as the team's primary closer heading into 2019. The 26-year-old has spent the previous two seasons in a multi-inning relief role, compiling a combined 2.68 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 154:41 K:BB across 144.2 innings during that stretch. With Yoshihisa Hirano still looming in the team's bullpen -- coupled with Bradley's ability to pitch multiple innings -- the Diamondbacks could still wind up using the right-hander in a more versatile back-end role.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake Lamb: Will switch to first base

    Lamb (shoulder) will be the Diamondbacks' first baseman in 2019 following the trade of Paul Goldschmidt, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    The position switch should give Lamb dual eligibility early in the season in most formats, which should give a modest bump to his fantasy value. Of course, he'll have to hit far better than the .222/.307/.348 line he posted in 56 games last season if he's to have much value at all. Lamb underwent shoulder surgery in August but is expected to be good to go by the start of spring training.

  • Diamondbacks' Andy Young: Dished to Arizona

    Young was traded from the Cardinals to the Diamondbacks along with Luke Weaver, Carson Kelly and a draft pick in exchange for Paul Goldschmidt.

    Young, a 24-year-old infielder with 2018 experience at second base and third base, is the distant third piece in this package from a real-life perspective, as he is 24 years old and only has 37 games at Double-A under his belt. That said, his recent performance has been excellent -- he slashed .319/.395/.556 with nine home runs in 152 plate appearances at Double-A and followed that up by hitting .301/.416/.521 with three home runs in 20 Arizona Fall League games. It is possible that the 2016 37th-round pick is a late bloomer, and the trade really gives him an opportunity to prove that, as it will be a lot easier to break into the infield mix in Arizona than it would have been in St. Louis.

  • Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Sent to Arizona

    The Cardinals traded Weaver, Carson Kelly, Andy Young and a 2019 Competitive Balance Round B draft pick to Arizona in exchange for Paul Goldschmidt on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Weaver started 25 games in 2018, but he was moved to a bullpen role a couple times throughout the season and wound up pitching in just two outings across the last four weeks. He finished the campaign with a 4.95 ERA and 1.50 WHIP to go along with an 8.0 K/9, which was noticeably down from his 10.7 mark the previous year. Looking ahead, the 25-year-old should have a place in Arizona's rotation, especially following the departures of Patrick Corbin and Clay Buchholz. Weaver will be under team control for the next five years after making his debut with St. Louis in 2016.

  • Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Dealt to D-backs

    Kelly was traded from the Cardinals to the Diamondbacks along with Luke Weaver, Andrew Young and a draft pick in exchange for Paul Goldschmidt.

    This is excellent for Kelly's fantasy value, as he was relatively blocked in St. Louis, but now joins a team that had Alex Avila and John Ryan Murphy as the incumbents behind the dish. Kelly's defense is generally regarded as above average, but his stock has dipped in the past calendar year, as he logged a 120 wRC+ at Triple-A in 2017 and followed that up with a 107 wRC+ in a return trip to the Pacific Coast League in 2018. He has a .154 average and zero home runs in 131 MLB plate appearances, but has a chance to be relevant as a low-power/decent-average option this season, particularly in two-catcher leagues.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Latches on with Diamondbacks

    Kelly signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

    The deal also includes a pair of club options. Kelly has yet to pitch in the majors, having topped out at Triple-A with the Rays in 2014 before moving to the KBO. The 30-year-old pitched well during his four seasons with SK Wyverns in Korea, notching a combined 3.86 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 641:206 K:BB across 119 appearances (118 starts, 729.2 innings). The right-hander figures to have the inside track for a rotation spot with Arizona in 2019.
