Status update: The Diamondbacks’ 2019 arbitration-eligible players
It’s so far been an offseason of breaking down the Arizona Diamondbacks’ roster and looking for flexibility.
General manager Mike Hazen traded Paul Goldschmidt to the St. Louis Cardinals, has remained open to potentially unloading other contracts such as ace Zack Greinke’s and non-tendered three players who at one time or another were key pieces to the D-backs’ success: infielder Chris Owings, pitcher Shelby Miller and reliever Brad Boxberger.
Eleven D-backs remain who are up for contract arbitration for their 2019 MLB seasons.
With the help of the Associated Press, which reported the dollar figures for each D-back, here is the status of each Arizona player entering the Friday, Jan. 11, deadline when arbitration figures must be exchanged.
