Diamondbacks, A.J. Pollock 'Not Far Apart' On Deal

Jan 19, 2016 7:35 AM

The Arizona Diamondbacks and A.J. Pollock are "not far apart" in talks to avoid arbitration.

Pollock is the only Arizona player eligible for salary arbitration who has not reached an agreement on a one-year deal.

The outfielder filed for arbitration Friday at $3.9 million, while the team countered with $3.65 million.

"We're not far apart," Dave Stewart said. "We're willing, if they're willing, to get to a ground where this thing doesn't have to go [to a hearing]. Both sides have to be willing, and if that can happen because the numbers are so close, we should be able to get this thing settled."

The team had expressed a desire to sign Pollock to a multiyear contract.

Diamondbacks Won't Sacrifice Another Draft Pick To Sign Free Agent

Jan 5, 2016 7:09 AM

The Arizona Diamondbacks, who gave up with 13th overall pick in June's draft to sign Zack Greinke, aren't interested sacrificing another pick, according to Dave Stewart.

Arizona's highest remaining selection is a Competitive Balance Round A choice that currently rates as the 37th overall choice.

"We're not going to give up the pick," Stewart said. "It's just tough after we've already given up our first pick. To give up our top two picks, that would be difficult for us to do."

The news contradicts a Monday report that the Diamondbacks are interested in Howie Kendrick.
