According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Marlins have discussed the possibility of trading for LHP Wade Miley.

The Marlins are in the market for a veteran starter and could potentially trade Nathan Eovaldi (4.37 ERA in 199+ innings in 2014) or another pitching prospect. Last season with the Diamondbacks, Miley was 8-12 with a 4.34 ERA and a 183/75 K/BB ratio in 201+ innings.

Diamondbacks signed OF Nick Buss to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old outfielder saw his power fall off a cliff during the 2014 season at Triple-A, but was still able to post a solid .299/.364/.382 slash line with five homers and 68 RBI in 136 games.

Diamondbacks signed RHP Caleb Clay to a minor league contract.

The 26-year-old right-hander joined the Angels organization midway through the 2014 season after pitching the first half of the year in the Korean Baseball Organization. He posted a 5.09 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 45/17 K/BB ratio over 76 frames at Triple-A Salt Lake. He'll function as organizational rotation depth for the D'Backs.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Cubs, Dodgers and White Sox have talked to the Diamondbacks about a trade involving Miguel Montero.

It's not clear how far along the talks with those teams have gotten, but Piecoro does note that the inquiries "have not picked up significantly" since the Russell Martin signing. The D'Backs are shopping Montero in hopes of clearing some payroll space, possibly so that they can add some pitching.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of LHP Will Locante from Low-A South Bend.

With the caveat that he was 24 and in Low-A, Locante did hold a 1.53 ERA with 57 strikeouts over 53 innings this season. He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft.
Nov 20 - 6:32 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of 3B Brandon Drury from Double-A Mobile.

Drury, 22, hit .299/.362/.510 with 23 homers and 95 RBI between High- and Double-A in 2014. He could begin next season at Triple-A.
Nov 20 - 6:29 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of OF Socrates Brito from High-A Visalia.

He's now protected from the 40-man roster. Brito, 22, batted .293/.339/.429 with 10 homers, 62 RBI and 38 steals for Visalia this season. He'll likely begin 2015 at Double-A.
Nov 20 - 6:27 PM

Diamondbacks purchased contract of RHP AJ Schugel from Double-A Mobile.

Schugel is now protected from the Rule-5 Draft. He pitched to a 3.47 ERA in 147+ innings at Double-A, striking out 142.
Nov 20 - 5:48 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Kevin Munson from Triple-A Reno.

Munson is now protected from the Rule-5 Draft. He pitched 62+ innings in Triple-A and recorded a 2.60 ERA in 2014. He's had issues with control in the past and will continue to work on honing in on the strike zone.
Nov 20 - 5:35 PM

Jordan Pacheco has elected to become a free agent.

Pacheco was outrighted off the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster earlier this month and had the option of testing the open market, so he'll do that. The 28-year-old is a .281/.316/.374 career hitter at the major league level, but he has experience at a variety of positions defensively, including catcher and third base. He should have no trouble finding a minor league contract with a spring training invite.

Diamondbacks acquired RHP Jeremy Hellickson from the Rays for OF Justin Williams and SS Andrew Velazquez.

The former American League Rookie of the Year has struggled with injuries and poor performance in recent years, but should benefit from the move to the Senior Circuit. He's a flyball pitcher with the propensity to serve up the long ball though, which could be a major problem at Chase Field. He's unlikely to generate much mixed league fantasy value, but could be a solid source of innings in NL-only formats.
Nov 14 - 10:26 PM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Diamondbacks have acquired Jeremy Hellickson from the Rays.

Cotillo reports that outfielder Justin Williams will head to the Rays as part of the deal. The 27-year-old will surely benefit from a move to the National League West, but with low strikeout totals isn't likely to become mixed league relevant.
Nov 14 - 9:51 PM

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Tuesday that he plans to tender a contract to Cliff Pennington.

Pennington is arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter after recently finishing a two-year, $5 million contract. The 30-year-old batted .254/.340/.350 with two home runs and 10 RBI over 68 games this season and Stewart still considers him a useful piece for the infield.
Nov 11 - 3:02 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Didi Gregorius is the Diamondbacks' most popular player in trade inquiries.

There are a number of teams (Dodgers, Mets, Yankees) looking for shortstops and Troy Tulowitzki and Starlin Castro figure to be very expensive via trade, so it makes sense. Gregorius has a lowly .243/.313/.366 batting line in the majors, but he's a solid defender and he's expendable for the D-Backs due to the presence of Chris Owings.
Nov 11 - 8:31 AM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks have expressed interest in trading for Rays right-hander Jeremy Hellickson.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reported Monday morning that the Rays are likely to move Hellickson to a National League team at some point during this week's GM Meetings in Arizona. Hellickson had an ugly 4.52 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in 63 2/3 innings this past season for Tampa Bay, but the 27-year-old former American League Rookie of the Year would make for a decent reclamation project for just about any NL club.
