The emergence of SS Chris Owings may cause problems for the Arizona Diamondbacks because SS prospect Didi Gregorius is at the position, and the team doesn't want to platoon if it can help it. "You'd like to see them get more at-bats, but if it becomes a platoon situation where one's facing lefties and one's facing righties, who's got the hot hand, you can probably make it work," general manager Kevin Towers said. "It's probably no different than what we've had to do with our outfielders, juggling them around a little bit."

The Arizona Diamondbacks are discussing Chicago White Sox SP Jake Peavy, according to a baseball source. Peavy pitched eight seasons with the San Diego Padres under general manager Kevin Towers, who is now the GM of the Diamondbacks. Peavy is owed roughly $5.28 million for the rest of this year and $14.5 million next season. The White Sox are interested in receiving infielders, and the D-backs have 3B Matt Davidson and SS Chris Owings playing at Triple-A Reno. Arizona could also include SP Tyler Skaggs in a package.

Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said SS Didi Gregorius will compete with SSs Willie Bloomquist and Cliff Pennington for the job at shortstop in spring training. "If he had to go back to Triple-A, I don't think it's such a bad thing. I think Triple-A at-bats would be good for him. Fortunately, we're in a situation where we've got depth at that area. Long term, having a guy like him and (Triple-A shortstop) Chris Owings, we've got two, I think industry-wide, two of the best young middle infielders in the game," Towers said about Gregorius. One talent evaluator said Gregorius could play in the big leagues right away.
