Yanks lose four minor leaguers in Rule 5 draft

The Yankees had four players taken in the Rule 5 draft Wednesday, while the O's picked three. The Tigers picked D-backs outfielder Victor Reyes No. 1; LHP/OF Anthony Gose was picked by the Astros, from the Rangers system; and the Royals made two trades.

From Buster Olney: The Diamondbacks are willing to listen to offers for Zack Greinke, rival evaluators say, because while Greinke continues to be one of the best pitchers in the NL, his salary is strangling Arizona's payroll. Before the 2016 season, he signed a six-year, $206 million deal with Arizona, and is set to make $138 million in salary over the next four seasons -- an enormous portion of the Diamondbacks' budget. But sources say the Diamondbacks have no interest in simply dumping the salary in a Giancarlo Stanton-type of deal. Rather, they would need to believe they got something good in return for a pitcher who finished fourth in the Cy Young Award voting in 2017.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo on J.D. Martinez: "I don't think I've seen a more passionate, smarter hitter walk through his day-to-day activities. He studies, he watches as much video as I've ever seen." Arizona is hoping to re-sign Martinez but faces stiff competition. Red Sox interested, too.
