Diamondbacks Managing Partner Ken Kendrick said there has been talk around the MLB league office of balancing the leagues.
With 16 teams in the National League and just 14 in the American League, one team is going to have to pick up a designated hitter and switch.
It just won’t be the Diamondbacks.
“I think I can report with confidence that the Diamondbacks will be a National League team,” Kendrick said on Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf show. “I know there was a little controversy earlier on about that, but I am very confident we’re going to stay in the National League where we belong.
“That’s the kind of baseball I enjoy watching, I think it’s real baseball.”
