Texas Rangers lefty and potential Arizona Diamondbacks free agent target Matt Moore pitches against the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park.

President and CEO Derrick Hall told Arizona Sports’ Bickley & Marotta less than a week before the deadline that any moves the team made would be aimed at improving...
