  • Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Diamondbacks made a minor league contract offer to John Lackey.
    Advice: Lackey passed on the deal, with no guarantees of making the MLB roster and being a part of the Arizona rotation. As Nightengale notes, the Diamondbacks signed Lackey's friend Clay Buchholz to a similar deal this spring, and for the most part, the right-hander has pitched well for Arizona. Lackey is not retired, but it's very unlikely we see him pitch for anyone in the 2018 season.
