    The Arizona Diamondbacks are reportedly prepared to "reduce the financial burden" on teams looking to trade for starting pitcher Zack Greinke.Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported Monday that the Diamondbacks are in a "transition" with Patrick Corbin and A.J. Pollock due for free agency. Greinke andPaul Goldschmidt may be available in trade discussions to help expedite that process.Greinke Kyle Schwarber Jersey , 35, went 15-11 with a 3.21 ERA and 1.08 WHIP last season. He will make $34.5 million in 2019, along with $35 million salaries in 2020 and 2021. It's unclear how much of the contract the Diamondbacks would be willing to eat in trade negotiations.Teams may wind up waiting to see where Corbin signs before pursuing Greinke, who is older and will cost prospects.Dallas Keuchel is also a free agent and should see numerous bidders across the league.A team like the New York Yankees could focus on landing Corbin or Keuchel before making a move for a Greinke or Corey Kluber, the other major pitching name expected to be bandied about on the trade market this winter. The Yankees are one of only a select few teams that have the combination of young players the D-backs may want and the financial wherewithalto absorb most of Greinke's contract. They are also expected to be major players in the pitching acquisition market.A need to improve their staff, whose starters put up a middling 4.05 ERA in 2018 (second-worst among playoff teams), could force their hand if they miss out on the big-name free agents http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-kerry-wood-jersey , or the Yankees could land a free-agent arm and pull off a blockbuster trade.Greinke has been among the most consistent pitchers in baseball throughouthis career. He has recorded at least two wins above replacement every year since 2007, per FanGraphs. Dustin Bradford/Getty ImagesThe Colorado Rockies are headed back to the postseason following a 5-2 win over the Washington Nationals on Friday night at Coors Field.The victory temporarily put the Rockies 1.5 games up on the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the National League West with two contests remaining in the regular season.Colorado Rockies RockiesWe鈥檙e baaack! Welcome to #Rocktober! 馃彅 jLKZE7QBcgColorado Rockies RockiesNice and easy for now, but we鈥檙e going to enjoy this. Bigger goals, bigger prize!#Rocktober 馃嵕 NNgULjUL50The Rockies made the playoffs last year as the NL's final wild-card qualifier, but they bowed out of the postseason following a thrilling 11-8 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks with a spot in the NLDS on the line.Bleacher Report MLB BR_MLBColorado Rockies make franchise history with postseason berths in B2B seasons#SeptemberBaseball oSgS4vdauJThis season, the Rockies kept pace in the race for a playoff spot because of their starting lineup's power-packed stylings. As a club, Colorado ranks secondin the NL inslugging percentage(.432)andOPS (.754).Those figures have been buoyed by the production of offensive pillarsDJ LeMahieu Kris Bryant Jersey , Trevor Story, Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon.If there's a worry with the Rockies, it's their rotation. Colorado's starting staff ranks12thamong NL clubs with a 4.18ERA, and there's a noticeable drop-off in top-end talent beyond Kyle Freeland and German Marquez, who has been scalding hot (2.55 ERA) since the All-Star break in July.On top of that, Rockies relievers rank13thin the NL with a 4.61 ERA. The only clubs with worse marks are the New York Mets and Miami Marlins.On the bright side, the Rockies have demonstrated an ability to hang tough away from the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field. While Colorado was just one game over .500 (41-40) on the road a year ago http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-addison-russell-jersey , manager Bud Black's squad displayed a bit of improvement and went 44-37 this season.That's not a whopping difference, to be sure, but it's clear the Rockies won't be pushovers even when they aren't surrounded by thin air.And given the haymakers their star-studded lineup can pack, a run toward the NL pennant isn't out of the question for a team that has caught fire down the stretch.
