    The Diamondbacks' worst contracts: Introduction and honorable mentions

    Luis Gonzalez extension, March 2003, $30 million/three years Gonzo was already under contract for 2003, the final year of a very team-friendly contract that had seen him be worth almost 25 bWAR while earning only $18.55 million.

He only recently picked up that pitch, learning how to throw it from former Diamondback Matt Peacock this spring. Jameson's best secondary pitch is a slider, which tunnels well off both of his fastballs.

Holton was a two-way player at Lincoln High and FSU, although at college it was obvious that his future was on the mound.
