The Arizona Diamondbacks continue to stay active in trade talks despite a lack of success this offseason. Potential trade target Sean Murphy is off to the Atlanta Braves, but the D-backs are still discussing a possible move for Daulton Varsho. Will their efforts be enough to make the playoffs in 2023?


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.
