News: Diamondbacks GM Dave Stewart said Tuesday that Pennington will be tendered a contract, Jack Magruder of FOXSportsArizona.com reports.
Impact: Eliminating any doubt as to Pennington's short-term future, Stewart said the 30-year-old will be offered arbitration for 2015. Pennington, a .248/.315/.350 career hitter at the highest level, doesn't get a whole lot of attention in fantasy circles, but his strong defense at the middle infield positions make him a valuable piece for major league teams.
