Apparently the D-Backs are interested in moving Didi Gregorius and have discussed a deal with the Pirates.
This would certainly be worth a call. He is a slick fielding 24 year old. He may never hit a ton, but he has a respectable .250 average, .329 OBP, .693 OPS in 380 MLB at bats as a 23 year old (7 HR). His numbers in the minors were between .700 and .750 OPS.
I would not give up Buxton, Sano, Meyer, or Kohl. But he would be an upgrade at SS and he would fit in nicely with our young core.
According to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports, the Pittsburgh Pirates "have had trade talks" with the Arizona Diamondbacks about shortstop Didi Gregorius. He also mentions the Yankees, Mets, Reds and Tigers as other teams that might yet enter the conversation for the presumed loser of the starting shortstop battle in Arizona.
