Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal says Paul Goldschmidt "isn't going anywhere" this offseason.
Teams have been calling the Diamondbacks' new front office about Goldy's availability, but it would take a ridiculous haul to pluck him out of Arizona. The dynamic 29-year-old first baseman carries a superb .924 career OPS and he's on a very team-friendly contract that runs through the 2019 season. First-year general manager Mike Hazen is wise to want to build around the guy. Nov 10 - 1:02 PM

John Gambadoro of 98.7 FM in Phoenix reports that the Diamondbacks are set to name Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo their new manager.

He seemed to become the heavy favorite for the gig once Mike Hazen was named the D'Backs new general manager, as they are close from their days together in Cleveland and Boston. Lovullo has been a longtime major league coach and minor league manager and has interviewed for multiple big league manager jobs in the past, so it's probably time that he finally gets his shot to lead a big league club.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports the Diamondbacks are choosing between Phil Nevin and Torey Lovullo for their next manager.

Alex Cora also got an interview, but it doesn't sound like there's anything going on there. Lovullo has been called the frontrunner for this job by multiple sources, and he does have a great familiarity with new Diamondbacks general manager Mike Mazen. Nevin served as skipper for the Diamondbacks' Triple-A affiliate in Reno in 2016. There is expected to be something official on this front within the next 24-48 hours.
Nov 3 - 10:00 AM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Alex Cora has an interview scheduled with the Diamondbacks next week for their managerial vacancy.

All signs still point to Torey Lovullo being the favorite for the position, but Cora also has a familiarity with new general manager Mike Hazen from their time together in Cleveland and in Boston.
Oct 29 - 1:55 PM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, "folks would be surprised" if the Diamondbacks didn't hire Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo as their next manager.

It's a logical fit, as new Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen knows Luvullo well from his time with the Red Sox and Indians. Phil Nevin, the manager of the Diamondbacks' Triple-A affiliate, is also a strong candidate for the job. The Diamondbacks are staying quiet on the situation, but one person who knows both men told Heyman he’d be "shocked" if Lovullo doesn’t get the job.
Oct 26 - 9:07 AM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Diamondbacks have hired Amiel Sawdaye as their new assistant general manager.

Sawdaye is following new GM Mike Hazen from Boston, where he had been the Red Sox' vice president of amateur and international scouting. It looks like a good hire, as Sawdaye has been instrumental in building up the Red Sox' young big league talent and farm system.
Oct 24 - 10:26 PM

The Diamondbacks have named Mike Hazen their new executive vice president and general manager.

Hazen had been the GM in Boston, where he served as president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski's No. 2. The 40-year-old was the Red Sox' assistant GM for four years prior to that. Hazen is a Princeton grad and former minor league outfielder and is expected to lead a more analytics-based front office in Arizona. MLB.com's Steve Gilbert hears that former chief baseball officer Tony La Russa will remain with the D'Backs in an advisor role.
Oct 16 - 2:13 PM

David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Diamondbacks are interested in Braves first base coach Eddie Perez for their managerial vacancy.

Perez was interviewed for the Braves' full-time manager job before Brian Snitker had the interim tag removed this week. He has also drawn interest from the Rockies as they attempt to fill their managerial vacancy. The Diamondbacks fired both manager Chip Hale and general manager Dave Stewart after the season, so chances are they'll hire a new general manager before making any final decision about their next manager.
Oct 15 - 2:00 PM

Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer off Edwin Jackson in Arizona's 5-3 win over San Diego on Friday.

The homer gave him a career-high 104 runs scored. With 24 homers and 95 RBI, he's not going to come close to matching his previous bests in those categories (36 HR and 125 RBI in 2013). Still, even in a down season, he's rated as fantasy baseball's No. 1 first baseman.
Oct 1 - 1:06 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Goldy had three of the Diamondbacks' seven hits in the loss, and he scored their lone run in the ninth inning. A strong finish could earn the 29-year-old his fourth consecutive .300-plus season, as he's now hitting .301 (with a .912 OPS) after Saturday's good game. He's having another fantasy MVP-worthy season, hitting 23 homers with 90 RBI, 102 runs scored and 27 stolen bases overall.
Sep 24 - 11:19 PM

Paul Goldschmidt homered twice to plate all three Diamondbacks runs in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Padres.

With 23 homers and 90 RBI, Goldschmidt isn't quite tearing it up in the power categories this year. Still, he doesn't always get a lot to hit as by far the biggest threat in the Arizona lineup. It's Goldschmidt, not Joey Votto, currently leading the NL in walks with 106.
Sep 22 - 12:54 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

Goldschmidt connected for a two-run home run off Paul Clemens with two outs in the sixth inning. That shot temporarily knotted the score at 2-2, but the Padres would come back in the bottom of the frame with a two-run homer of their own. For his part, Goldy is now slashing .297/.413/.484 with 21 homers, 87 RBI and 27 steals over 539 at-bats.
Sep 21 - 2:37 AM

Paul Goldschmidt is out of Monday's lineup versus the Padres.

Goldschmidt had a rough series against the Dodgers, so a day off to clear his head isn't the worst idea. Kyle Jensen will start at first base and bat seventh against left-hander Clayton Richard. Brandon Drury will move into to the No. 3 spot.
Sep 19 - 6:48 PM

Paul Goldschmidt is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the slugger. Phil Gosselin is filling in at first base.
Aug 28 - 3:20 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Braves.

Goldschmidt was one of just two Diamondbacks to record hits on the evening (Jean Segura also notched a single). Goldy would come around to score on a Chris Owings RBI ground out in the seventh for the team's lone run of the contest. The All-Star first baseman is slashing .304/.421/.505 with 20 homers and 78 RBI across 461 at-bats.
