The Arizona Diamondbacks are expected to announce Monday the hiring of Chip Hale as their manager. 

A bit of a surprise considering some of the names on their candidate list, but they obviously feel that Hale is the best choice for a young team in a rebuilding process. We wish him nothing but the best of luck.

Ronny Cedeno has elected free agency.

While the demand for him won't be great, Cedeno can offer teams a decent fielding option for when they need a late-inning defensive replacement. That's about all he has going for him.

Bobby Wilson has elected to become a free agent.

Batting .267 with three home runs over 299 plate appearances at hitter-friendly Triple-A Reno is not going to get you much love from big league teams or fantasy ones either.

Nolan Reimold and Ian Stewart have elected free agency.

Neither player will command much on the open market and neither will have much fantasy relevance this year. No need to pay much mind here.

Jim Tracy, Phil Nevin, Sandy Alomar and Chip Hale are the four finalists for the Diamondbacks manager job.

Tracy is obviously the bigger name of the foursome with respect to major league managerial experience and since he's also managed the Dodgers and Rockies, he's all too familiar with the NL West. He should be considered the front-runner.

Diamondbacks have sent outfielder Brett Jackson outright to Triple-A Reno. 

Jackson hit just .208 between two Triple-A clubs this season and may have reached the end of the road in having a chance to excel as a major league baseball player. He has minor league journeyman written all over him.

Diamondbacks have sent catcher Bobby Wilson outright to Triple-A Reno. 

Wilson spent most of his season at Triple-A Reno but did appear in two games for the Diamondbacks this year. He'll head back to Triple-A and wait for his next assignment this offseason.

Diamondbacks have sent pitcher Joe Paterson outright to Triple-A Reno. 

Paterson pitched 1.1 innings for the Diamondbacks this season and gave up five earned runs, giving him a season ERA of 33.75. He has shown moderate promise in the past, but he'll probably be in the minors at the start of the 2015 season unless he shows huge strides in spring training.

Diamondbacks announce GM Kevin Towers is leaving to pursue other opportunities.

Towers was relieved of his duties as general manager on September 5, but has remained with the team in an unspecified role ever since. Now, the decision has been made that Towers will be moving on completely from the Diamondbacks' organization. Dave Stewart took over the the new Arizona general manager on September 26.

Chris Owings underwent successful surgery on his left labrum Thursday.

Shoulder issue plagued Owings all year, so it's good that he finally opted to take care of it. He is expected to be ready for spring training in 2015.
