The MLB trade deadline is Wednesday and the Dbacks are likely going to be major sellers. Robbie Ray, Zack Greinke, Andrew Chafin and Jarrod Dyson are getting the most chatter but who will stay and who will go? Here are the latest bits of juicy trade rumors from the MLB insiders.
The hottest name on the block is lefty Robbie Ray, coming off an impressive 11 strikeout performance on the road against the Marlins pretty much every contender is in on the southpaw.
Given all the smoke surrounding Ray it’s likely he has thrown his last pitch as a Dback
The Dbacks ace and $30 Million starter Zack Greinke is also among the leading candidates for a trade. Greinke is having his best season as a Dback at age 35 with an ERA under 3.00, a league leading WHIP, three home runs at the dish and a 10-4 record. Greinke has been tied to the Phillies and the Yankees but nothing seems imminent with Bob Nightengale calling his shot on a recent interview
Dbacks fans, get ready for more of Zack Greinke in the desert as it now seems he will stick around.
Outfielder Jarrod Dyson is having a bounceback season afte injuries derailed him in 2018. He leads the league in stolen bases (24) and has been connected to the Cubs most often.
There could be others on the block as well but would we should not be surprised if Mike Hazen was really busy come 1pm on Wednesday.
