The Diamondbacks will be in the market for at least one outfield bat, maybe two, depending on their plans for second baseman/center fielder Ketel Marte, who developed into a bone fide star.
Although he allowed 30 homers for San Francisco last year, the D-backs signed the left-hander to a five-year, $85 million free-agent contract that’s back-loaded and includes $5 million in interest-free deferred money the first three seasons.
