  • Hazen said former hitting strategist Robert Van Scoyoc had expressed some interest in being a hitting coach, but the D-backs were mostly looking at him for the assistant job. Van Scoyoc wasn't into that, and then Dodgers called about the head job. Too good to turn down, probably

  • Hazen said he hasn't talked to many players to explain the thinking of the Paul Goldschmidt deal. He delegates that to Torey Lovullo mostly.

  • When asked about Yasmany Tomas, Hazen said there's maybe a chance he could get opportunity in the outfield and first base in spring training. Tomas is not on the 40-man roster and is owed $32.5 million through the 2020 season.

  • In a world where Jake Lamb is at third, Escobar is at second and Marte is in center, Hazen said he would probably find an outside addition to pair with Christian Walker (and maybe Kevin Cron) at first.

  • Not directly about the reported interest in Boston CF Jackie Bradley Jr., but Hazen said, "acquiring players with limited control would be kind of tough for what we're looking to do." Bradley has two arb years left.

  • "We've traded away 30 players (prospects) the last two years. We're probably getting to a certain limit where we're starting to dive into the group of players we want to build around longer-term."

  • Hazen said any trade they make to add a CF (or a 2B, if Ketel Marte ends up in CF, or a 1B, if Marte ends up in CF, Eduardo Escobar plays 2B and Jake Lamb stays at 3B) would be a big-leaguer for big-leaguer trade. He thinks D-backs have pitching depth they could leverage there.
