ESPN insiders says Diamondbacks are looking for cheap bullpen options
It’s become quite apparent that the Arizona Diamondbacks are in the market for bullpen help. Exactly what type of arm they are looking isn’t quite as clear.
ESPN’s Buster Olney did his best to shed some light on the subject Friday via Twitter.
Arizona’s pursuit of relief help somewhat impacted by finances. Aren’t in market for pricey veterans;more in cheaper 0-3 service time range.
Taking pricey veterans out of the mix may make finding a reliable relief pitcher more difficult for Kevin Towers. It would also seem to cross Jason Isringhausen off the clubs wish list as well.
In a perfect world the D-backs would have the cash to pursue anyone at the deadline. Luckily Towers has proven already that he’s capable of doing more with less. Especially when it comes to building a bullpen.
