  • Diamondbacks' Abraham Almonte: Signs minors deal with Arizona

    Almonte signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training.

    Almonte played 50 games with the Royals in 2018 and posted a .179/.260/.284 slash line in 151 plate appearances before being released in July. With A.J. Pollock becoming a free agent, the Diamondbacks have a hole to fill in center field, where Almonte has played the majority of his time in the majors. The 29-year-old seems unlikely to push for a significant role given his career wRC+ of 79, but he will at least get a chance to compete in camp.

  • Diamondbacks' Jasrado Chisholm: Making impact in Arizona Fall League

    Chisholm has gone 14-for-32 (.455 average) with three home runs, two doubles and five stolen bases across seven games in the Arizona Fall League.

    Chisholm cemented his status as one of the Diamondbacks' top position prospects after pacing the farm system with 25 home runs between Low-A Kane County and High-A Visalia this past season and has only kept raking while facing higher-caliber competition in the AFL. There's still some question whether Chisholm will be able to stick at shortstop over the long haul, but he would still profile as a plus-power bat in the middle infield if he's forced to shift over to the keystone.

  • Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Not planning to opt out

    Tomas will not exercise the opt-out clause in his contract with the Diamondbacks this offseason, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.

    This comes as no surprise, as Tomas is guaranteed $32.5 million over the next two seasons. Given his defensive limitations, it seems likely that the soon-to-be 28-year-old will play out his contract in the minors, where he spent all of 2018, hitting .262/.280/.465 with 14 homers in 106 games for Triple-A Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Goldschmidt: Club option exercised for 2019

    The Diamondbacks exercised Goldschmidt's $14.5 million option for 2019, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    This comes as no surprise, as Goldschmidt posted another MVP-caliber season for the Diamondbacks in 2018, hitting .290/.389/.533 with 33 homers, 83 RBI and seven stolen bases in 158 games. Arizona is reportedly shopping him this offseason, although there is no guarantee that their logically steep asking price will be met.

  • Diamondbacks' Artie Lewicki: Claimed off waivers by Diamondbacks

    Lewicki (elbow) was claimed off waivers by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Lewicki is set to miss the entire 2019 campaign after undergoing Tommy John surgery at the end of August. The Diamondbacks will either need to carry him on their 40-man roster until the start of the season (when he can be transferred to the 60-day DL) or attempt to pass him through waivers as the Tigers did. The 26-year-old posted a 4.89 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 30:14 K:BB across 38.2 innings with the Tigers in 2018 prior to suffering the injury.

  • Diamondbacks' Shane Watson: Inks minor-league deal with Diamondbacks

    Watson signed a two-year, minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

    Watson spent the 2018 season in the independent Atlantic League after getting cut loose by the Phillies, posting a 6.40 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 43:25 K:BB across 45 innings with the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs. A supplemental first-round pick in 2012, he has struggled since undergoing shoulder surgery in 2013.

  • Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Signs extension with Arizona

    Escobar will remain in Arizona for three more seasons after signing an extension Monday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    The deal is reported to be for three years and $21 million. The 29-year-old utility man broke out in 2018, moving into an everyday role and hitting .272/.334/.489 with a career-high 23 homers. His hard contact rate jumped up to 38.2 percent after sitting at 31.4 percent in 2017, so there's reason to believe he'll be able to sustain that level of production going forward, giving fantasy owners a cheap but adequate option at shortstop and third base.

  • Diamondbacks' Patrick Kivlehan: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Kivlehan was outrighted to Triple-A Reno on Wednesday.

    Kivlehan was recently designated for assignment. He wound up playing in nine games down the stretch, going 3-for-13 with a pair of triples and six strikeouts. He spent most of the season at the Triple-A level after playing in 115 games for Cincinnati in 2017. He will continue to serve as organizational outfield depth.

  • Diamondbacks' Archie Bradley: Blows save chance in finale

    Bradley blew his eighth save of the season in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Padres in 10 innings after yielding the game-tying run in the bottom of the ninth. He retired three of the six batters he faced and allowed three base hits.

    Bradley closed out the 2018 campaign by surrendering leads in both of his last two appearances, bringing his total of blown saves to four just in September alone. While Bradley still turned in useful ratios (3.64 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 9.4 K/9) this season, all amounted to dramatic downturns from 2017, when he emerged as one of the majors' top middle-relief arms. The Diamondbacks are expected to address the back end of the bullpen through free agency or the trade market this winter, but that won't necessarily preclude Bradley from receiving an opportunity to close next season.
