Diamondbacks’ David Peralta working to escape slump as trade rumors begin

Left fielder David Peralta’s name was attached to trade rumors over the weekend, the first Diamondbacks player to be connected to such a report thus far this season. He does not figure to be the last.

With the Diamondbacks’ freefall still in progress, the club is expected to become sellers sooner than later — perhaps well before the July 30 trade deadline.

That Peralta would be made available — as a report by FanSided suggested — is not surprising. Nor will it be a surprise to see other names, including infielders Eduardo Escobar, Asdrubal Cabrera and outfielder Kole Calhoun, find their way into the rumor mill, as well.
