The right-handed set-up man is currently working out a deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic.

Arizona Diamondbacks Projected Batting Lineup

The Arizona Diamondbacks were one of the best hitting teams in the National League last season and they will aim to continue that excellence this season. The team’s .265 batting average and .324 OBP were both the 3rd best in the NL and they also had a .414 slugging percentage which was good enough for the 2nd best mark in the NL. While the D-Backs will have a new face at shortstop...

Diamondbacks Trade for Segura: When Does This Team Want to Win?

“We think that our time is now. Obviously, with the way ownership has stepped up, we’re putting the effort towards trying to get it done now.” This quote from Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart during a conference call with reporters at last December’s Winter Meetings not only sums up the current philosophy of the front office, but it explains every transaction...

Dbacks may be done making big moves, says GM Dave Stewart

The Arizona Diamondbacks have had one of the most eventful offseasons of any club so far, but they might be finished retooling for 2016. After grabbing headlines by dramatically winning the Zack Greinke sweepstakes in December and picking up shortstop Jean Segura from the Milwaukee Brewers in a trade involving Aaron Hill this week, GM Dave Stewart told MLB.com's Steve Gilbert that...

You Should Believe In David Peralta

So I’m sitting here, passing a Wednesday afternoon by scrolling through players Steamer thinks are going to be worse. Most of the time, I get it. Yoenis Cespedes, sure — last year, he had almost everything go right. With Francisco Lindor, I understand bat-related skepticism. I see why a projection system thinks Joe Panik will take a step back, and the same goes for Justin Turner...

The confounding, fascinating Arizona Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks are weird. Well, maybe weird isn’t the best word. “Compelling,” “fascinating,” and “head-scratching” also could work. Arizona seems to operate under their own set of rules, and Dave Stewart and Tony La Russa don’t care how the moves they make are perceived. Over the last year alone, some of those moves include: Trading away Touki Toussaint, their...

After years marked by tragedy, frustration, can Segura blossom in desert?

Look at the numbers -- 2½ seasons of poor offensive numbers -- and it’s difficult to see why the Diamondbacks wanted Jean Segura. Since July 19, 2013, Segura’s OPS is .610, the lowest in the majors over that span for players with at least 1,100 plate appearances, according to STATS LLC. And yet, his numbers do not necessarily tell the entire story. Many fans know that on July...

An Inconclusive Exploration of Paul Goldschmidt’s Passivity

I don’t believe I’m out of line when I say that, of life’s most enjoyable pleasures, many are to be used, collected, consumed, or practiced in moderation. “You can have too much of a good thing,” they say. Food and alcohol, for example. Both delightful. Both substances which, were I unaware of the consequences of surplus consumption, I would regularly consume in excess...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Arizona Diamondbacks Team Preview

Arizona has been busy this offseason, bringing in Zack Greinke and Shelby Miller to make a formidable top three in its rotation along with Patrick Corbin. They did lose one intriguing offensive fantasy asset in Ender Inciarte, whom they traded for Miller, but the D’Backs just brought in Jean Segura to try and recoup some of that lost offense. That won’t happen, but the desert...

Howie Kendrick, Jean Segura, and Arizona’s Latest Mistake

Over the weekend, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks made a pair of related transactions.

Given that Kendrick turned down the qualifying offer, which would have guaranteed him $15.8 million...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Offseason in Review

A lot has changed since the Arizona Diamondbacks won their first, and only, World Series in 2001. While the organization is still relatively young, established in 1998, the team has struggled to remain consistent and has been unable to put together a winning record since 2011. That was also the last year that the team made the playoffs, but fear not Diamondbacks fans, 2016 will be...
