There’s not much going on in the world of baseball right now. The Diamondbacks made some minor moves after the first of the year, but there’s been little since. They just signed Chris Iannetta to support Jeff Mathis and Chris Herrmann, citing his on-base skills and power as selling points. There wasn’t much talk of his poor framing numbers, …

The Diamondbacks got the hot stove going properly Wednesday night. A trade that sent Jean Segura, Mitch Haniger and Zac Curtis to the Mariners for Taijuan Walker and Ketel Marte is one hell of a way to start the offseason. I mean, no one saw that coming. As we’ve been working diligently on our Offseason Plan, I can let …

Prospect season has arrived and in case you missed it, we rolled out the rankings for prospects #11-20 and #21-31 last week. Those lists are full of intriguing players, some that are homegrown and others that have come to the organization recently by way of trade.

This wave of good young prospects has moved along, somewhat in unison, as the BayBears are loaded with interesting guys. But if you know anything about the strengths of the Diamondbacks’ minor league system, you’re well aware …

The BayBears have been a force to be reckoned with in the Southern League since 2011. They’ve won two league titles and made the playoff consistently since that time, and with this roster, they’re definitely looking like heavy favorites to take the crown again. How long this core of players remains together is unknown, but they’re loaded with elite talent. …

In the second installment of the Diamondbacks Top 30 Prospects, we start getting into impact territory, highlighting some high ceiling youngsters and recently-traded-for prospects. A pair of 2014 draftees might offer the most likely upside while two Latin prospects on the list have big time potential but big time questions.

So, the Diamondbacks made some trades yesterday and acquired some pieces in return. I don’t want to get too in-depth on the trades themselves, but I’d like to review what the team received in return for outfielder Gerardo Parra and third baseman Martin Prado. It should noted that the team saved $1.6M this year in dealing Parra, plus whatever …
