Diamondbacks Don't Want To Deal Position Players To Fill Out Rotation

Nov 9, 2015 8:03 AM

The Arizona Diamondbacks need to add some pitching this offseason, but Dave Stewart hopes he can avoid dealing position players in order to fill out his rotation.

"I know there are going to be a lot of agents there," Stewart said of the general manager's meetings this week. "We may be able to get an opportunity to talk to these guys about some of the free agents. I don't know if there's going to be a lot as far as the trades are concerned."

Stewart is proud of the position player depth the organization has built, so he would prefer to sign pitchers than trade for them.

The Diamondbacks "do have a little money to spend," Stewart said, and he sounded willing to surrender a draft pick for the right free agents.
