Mark Reynolds deal with Arizona

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic takes a look at why a three-year deal with Mark Reynolds makes sense for the Diamondbacks.

Piecoro compares a deal for Reynolds similar to something Florida would give Dan Uggle and estimates a three-year deal in the $14 million-$15 million range would be fair.

Webb looking at options after 2010

Brandon Webb is preparing himself change sometime in the range of late 2010/early 2011, as reported by the Arizona Republic .

Recent comments by Webb include things like he wants to "see what's out there" and that he'd like "to get back close to home (in Kentucky)." 

Webb said this off-season that he hopes the Diamondbacks will watch him return to form this summer and approach him with the idea of a contract extension, maybe sometime in July but that seems unlikely.

Granderson and Jackson Deals

As for the blockbuster three-team deal with the Yankees, Diamondbacks and Tigers involving Curtis Granderson, Edwin Jackson and Max Scherzer... the deal apparently collapsed late with the Yankees backed out, as reported by the Detroit News .

Dombrowski said there have been "lots of conversations" about a trade and that they were "more intensified" than other days and added "that we're talking about a lot of things right now"

So, a deal still could get done,with the Chicago Cubs also interested in Granderson and the Yankees hot on Jackson's trail.

Big trade in the works?

MLB.com 's Day 1 roundup mentions a meeting with the Yankees, D-backs and Tigers reportedly talking about a blockbuster trade that would send Detroit outfielder Curtis Granderson to New York and right-hander Edwin Jackson to Arizona.

The proposed deal would have Granderson and one or two D-backs prospects going to the Yankees, and Jackson and Yankees right-hander Ian Kennedy going to the D-backs. The Tigers would receive right-hander Max Scherzer from the D-backs, and center fielder Austin Jackson and left-handed relievers Phil Coke and Michael Dunn from the Yankees.

Webb is not willing to redo his 2010 option

The Arizona Republic reports that Brandon Webb, who hasn't pitched since Opening Day because of an injury to his pitching shoulder, has no interest in restructuring his deal. 

According to the report, Webb said that he is not willing to pitch for less or re-do his deal based on incentive clauses.

The Diamondbacks haven't indicated their plans to Webb, but there has been speculation that they might ask him to restructure his pay because of his shoulder.

Chris Snyder's DL Stint

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Repubic speculates that the recent move of Chris Snyder back on the DL could  have big impact on how the off-season unravels for both the team and Snyder.

There is hope that Snyder’s injury is nothing serious and he can return to his old form. If not, the Diamondbacks will not be able to trade him in the offseason with a .200 average and $11.25 million owed.
