The Diamondbacks have emerged as a frontrunner for Japanese pitcher Shintaro Fujinami. Also, we are shipping All-Star caliber free agents out of the NL West. What are the San Diego Padres going to do with Fernando Tatis Jr? And will the San Francisco Giants be able to resign Carlos Rodon?


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
