Arizona Diamondbacks Player News: All Positions

News: The Indians cut ties with Papi on Saturday.
Impact: Despite rising up slowly through the organizational ranks, Papi's profile doesn't exactly fit that of a future major-league hitter. He closed out 2019 with a .202/.290/.258 batting line over 27 games and is now on the free-agent market.
News: Snider was released by the Diamondbacks on Friday, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports.
Impact: The 32-year-old journeyman was attempting to make it back to the majors for the first time since 2015. A first-round pick in 2006, Snider has a career .244/.311/.399 slash line.
News: Pompey was released by the Diamondbacks on Friday, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports.
Impact: The 27-year-old outfielder was once an intriguing prospect with the Blue Jays from 2012 through 2015. However, injuries took their toll and he never really mastered Triple-A pitching.
News: Reed was released by the Diamondbacks on Friday, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports.
Impact: Reed was a lower-level sleeper from 2014 through 2016, but arm injuries struck and he never quite regained his prior form. He reached High-A in 2016 but never made it further than that level.
News: Cecchini was released by the Diamondbacks on Friday, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports.
Impact: The 26-year-old second baseman was once a prospect of note in the Mets' system and joined Arizona on a minors pact this past offseason. He hasn't played in the majors since 2017.
News: Grier was released by the Diamondbacks on Friday, JJ Cooper of Baseball America reports.
Impact: The 39th overall pick in 2016, Grier was seen as a high-risk, high-reward outfielder. His hit tool never developed as needed, as he hit below .230 with a strikeout rate north of 31 percent in back-to-back seasons at High-A.
News: The Diamondback released Jackson on Thursday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
Impact: Jackson joined the Diamondbacks in camp as a non-roster invitee prior to the COVID-19 outbreak but was likely facing an uphill battle to claim an Opening Day roster spot anyway. With active rosters potentially expanded for the upcoming season, Jackson could end up finding a home somewhere as a bullpen arm despite an uninspiring 2019 season.
