    Going from Escobar to Bryant could go a long way toward pushing the Diamondbacks more firmly into the wild card picture this year. With a farm that’s grown deep in the past couple of years, sacrificing Carroll doesn’t hurt them too badly in that department.

    Figured the Rockies don’t really want to give in on the rebuild thing, so they get a couple of reasonably priced veterans who are also flippable if things go south in Escobar and Quintana along with a real prospect in Carroll and a salary dump in old friend Tyler Chatwood.

    Cubs have been hot on Arenado, apparently. I assume if they pull the trigger on this deal, Arenado has agreed to at least push back his opt-out. They sacrificed pitching depth for additional room to both absorb Arenado’s luxury tax salary and get under the threshold. Arizona has a bunch of at least somewhat competent pitching in front of Young, so he’s expendable to a Cubs team that desperately needs to fill out the back of its rotation in this scenario. Hoffman has been bad and is out of options, so he doesn’t have much of a place on the Rockies if they’re adding a starter. The Cubs take a flier on him here to at least be a body to compete for the fifth starter spot and see if they can get something out of the potential that made him a high draft pick.
