Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Enrique Burgos from High-A Visalia.

Burgos needed to be added to the 40-man roster in order to be protected from the Rule 5 Draft. The 23-year-old hard-thrower experienced a breakthrough in High-A this season, posting a 2.47 ERA while striking out 83 over 54 2/3 innings.

Diamondbacks top pitching prospect Archie Bradley was knocked around in his latest Arizona Fall League start on Saturday against Mesa, surrendering seven runs (four earned) on three hits in his two-plus innings of work.

The biggest culprit for his demise in this one was a lack of command, evidenced by four free passes in his two-plus innings. He did manage to record a pair of strikeouts before departing. The 22-year-old had difficulty after a mid-season promotion to Double-A Mobile where he registered a 4.12 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 46/36 K/BB ratio over 54 2/3 innings. Until he can deliver the ball over the plate consistently, he won't be a legitimate option to join the Diamondbacks rotation.

Mark Grace has been named the Diamondbacks' assistant hitting coach.

Turner Ward will remain the primary hitting coach. Grace played for the D'Backs from 2001-2003 and became a broadcaster for the team shortly after announcing his retirement. He was dismissed from that position in 2012 after his second DUI arrest, but the 50-year-old former three-time All-Star has apparently cleaned up his act. The Diamondbacks hired former A's bench coach Chip Hale to become their new manager earlier this week, and he's now building his staff with the help of executives Dave Stewart and Tony La Russa.

The Diamondbacks introduced Chip Hale as their new manager Monday.

Hale most recently served as a bench coach for the Athletics. This is his first managerial position. The 49-year-old received a two-year deal with a team option for a third. He's got some work to do with a team that finished dead last in MLB in 2014.
Oct 13 - 7:14 PM

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, Chip Hale will be named the Diamondbacks' new manager.

Hale had been serving as the A's bench coach since 2011 and should bring a more forward-thinking voice to the Arizona dugout. He was part of the Diamondbacks' major league coaching staff from 2006-2009 (under Bob Melvin) and managed before that at Triple-A Tucson. He's also an alumnus of the University of Arizona, so his ties to the region run deep. The four finalists to replace Kirk Gibson in Arizona were Hale, Jim Tracy, Phil Nevin, and Sandy Alomar Jr.

Bobby Wilson has elected free agency.

Wilson appeared in two games with the Diamondbacks in 2014. The 31-year-old will have a tough time scoring anything more than a minor league deal heading into next season.
Oct 11 - 9:48 PM

Ronny Cedeno has elected free agency.

Cedeno was acquired by the Diamondbacks from the Phillies in June, never making an appearance with the club after the deal. The 31-year-old will have a hard time finding a major league deal this winter.
Oct 11 - 9:35 PM

Nolan Reimold has elected free agency.

The 30-year-old bounced around to three different organizations in 2014, hitting .232/.282/.425 with three homers and 13 RBI in 29 games with the Blue Jays and Diamondbacks. He's proven to be a solid major league bat when healthy, and shouldn't have difficulty finding a new destination where he can compete for a reserve outfielder role.
Oct 11 - 8:57 AM

According to high-ranking officials within the organization, the Diamondbacks are expected to announce the hiring of a new manager on Monday.

They have narrowed their search down to four candidates: Jim Tracy, Phil Nevin, Chip Hale and Sandy Alomar Jr. Of the four, Tracy is the only candidate with prior big league managerial experience. Nevin spent the 2013 season as the manager at the Diamondbacks Triple-A affiliate in Reno, while Chip Hale and Sandy Alomar Jr. served as bench coaches for the Athletics and Indians respectively.

Diamondbacks sent OF Brett Jackson outright to Triple-A Reno.

Jackson, acquired from the Cubs in August, went hitless in four at-bats with the Diamondbacks in September. The former top prospect has fallen a long way in recent years.
Oct 8 - 10:52 PM

Diamondbacks sent LHP Joe Paterson outright to Triple-A Reno.

Paterson allowed five runs in 1 1/3 innings with the club after being promoted on September 12. The southpaw has a career 6.25 ERA and will simply serve as pitching depth for the D'backs.
Oct 8 - 10:49 PM

Diamondbacks sent C Bobby Wilson outright to Triple-A Reno.

Wilson had one hit in four at-bats in September, his first major league action since 2012. The 31-year-old is nothing more than organizational depth for the Diamondbacks.
Oct 8 - 10:42 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks have been granted permission to interview Rangers interim manager Tim Bogar for their managerial vacancy.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic has confirmed the report with the team. Piecoro also notes that it sounds like the D'Backs are done compiling the list of people to interview, as Bogar joins Chip Hale, Lorenzo Bundy, Don Wakamatsu, Joe McEwing, Sandy Alomar, Jr., Jim Tracy, Jay Bell, Andy Green, Phil Nevin and Turner Ward.
Oct 3 - 3:15 PM

The Diamondbacks have received permission to interview Athletics third base coach Chip Hale.

They've also been given permission to interview Dodgers third base coach Lorenzo Bundy and have requested to interview Rangers interim manager Tim Bogar. Assuming the request to interview Bogar is granted, that brings the total of managerial candidates to 11. Also on the list are Don Wakamatsu, Joe McEwing, Sandy Alomar, Jr., Jim Tracy, Jay Bell, Andy Green, Phil Nevin and Turner Ward.
Oct 3 - 8:53 AM

The Diamondbacks have received permission to interview Don Wakamatsu for their managerial opening.

Wakamatsu is currently serving as a bench coach for the Royals. Joe McEwing, Sandy Alomar, Jr., Jim Tracy, Jay Bell, Andy Green, Phil Nevin and Turner Ward have also been identified as candidates for the position.
