Diamondbacks Trade Rumors: Arizona Discussing Aroldis Chapman Trade With Reds

The Arizona Diamondbacks have been in discussions with the Reds about acquiring ace closer Aroldis Chapman, according to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. 

Cincinnati has a “huge” asking price and the discussions could just be “due diligence,” per the report, but it’s notable that Arizona is looking into a deal. Yesterday, Arizona inquired about Cole Hamels of the Phillies, signaling that they're interested in making a big splash and bringing in a star player.

Considering Arizona’s interest in both Hamels and Chapman, it looks like the club wants to put some impact pieces in place to give them a chance to contend this year while also providing future value. Other clubs are weighing similar options, but the D’Backs do have the future salary capacity to make these moves work.
