Towers prepared to deal at deadline

Jul 4, 2012, 3:23 AM | Updated: 4:37 am

With less than a week left until the All-Star break it’s
time for the Arizona Diamondbacks to decide where they
stand. Are they going to buy, sell, or sit still
approaching the trade deadline?

For Diamondbacks General Manager Kevin Towers, that’s an
easy question.

“I’ve always been the proactive one, I’m not one to sit
back and wait for the phone to ring. I like to get out
there and say ‘what about this, or what about that?’ and
throw some ideas out there,” Towers told Arizona Sports
620’s Doug and Wolf Tuesday. “I look for us to be more
active than
not active.”

For a Diamondbacks team filled with talented outfielders
and plenty of promising starting pitchers, it’s important
to find the right team to deal
with.

“That’s really what I’ve been working on all day. Just
going through each and every roster and trying to
eliminate teams we don’t match up with and others that
maybe where we have depth they lack depth, or where we
lack depth they have depth.”
