Player Notes
USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Diamondbacks are considered a "long shot" to land Aroldis Chapman, as the Reds "now have stronger offers."

Advice: It's unclear which teams made the other offers, but CBS Sports' Jon Heyman notes that the Astros are in the mix and Chapman has also been connected to the Yankees. The flamethrower would obviously move into the closer role wherever he goes, so Luke Gregorson or Andrew Miller could be headed to a setup role.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa wants Aroldis Chapman "badly."

Advice: Rosenthal says that the out-of-contention Diamondbacks would acquire Chapman with the idea of signing him to a contract extension. Chapman is making $8.05 million this season and will be arbitration-eligible for a final time over the winter. Of course, whether Chapman would be agreeable to a long-term deal with Arizona isn't known. It's unclear at this point if a trade is close.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Yankees are one of five teams "aggressively pursuing" Aroldis Chapman.

Advice: The Diamondbacks are known to be one of the others clubs. The Giants have poked around on Chapman but might be out of it after trading some assets for Mike Leake. The Yankees appear dead-set on adding a closer despite already having Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances, as they've also been linked heavily to Craig Kimbrel.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Diamondbacks have made an offer to the Reds for star closer Aroldis Chapman.

Advice: It is still somewhat puzzling that the Diamondbacks maintain such a high level of interest in acquiring Chapman, as a closer is a luxury and would seemingly be a waste in their current situation. However, if they have serious intentions on competing in 2016 and view him as the missing piece, it makes some sense. The Reds are in desperate need of rotation help and the Diamondbacks do possess several interesting young arms. Stay tuned.

Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reports that the Diamondbacks are talking to the Reds about a trade for Aroldis Chapman.

Advice: It would be a weird move for the Diamondbacks, who aren't in contention this season. A dominant closer is a luxury in such a situation, but Arizona apparently sees him as a difference-maker as they look toward 2016. Chapman, who will be eligible for free agency after next season, has also reportedly drawn interest from the Nationals.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Giants have inquired to the Reds about Aroldis Chapman.

Advice: Morosi says there haven't been any offers exchanged so far. The Nationals have also been linked to Chapman, although it's not a given that the Reds will trade him since he's under team control through another season. Chapman would push Santiago Casilla to a setup role if he winds up in San Francisco.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Reds' asking price for Aroldis Chapman is "exorbitant."

Advice: Stark adds that other clubs are "not sure (Reds owner Bob Castellini) wants to move him." It's no surprise, of course, that the club's asking price for Chapman would be sky-high, as he's arguably the best closer in baseball and is under team control through next season. The Nationals are one team that's been linked to Chapman, but a deal probably isn't terribly likely.
