David Hernandez agreed to one-year, $2M deal to avoid arbitration.

Hernandez missed the 2014 season after Tommy John surgery and likely won't help the Diamondbacks until the second half of 2015. He has shown success in the past and could be a solid bullpen arm for Arizona at a relatively cheap price.

Ben Francisco signed a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks.

Francisco spent 2014 with the Lancaster Barnstormers, but is going to be given a shot by the Diamondbacks to play for one of their minor league affiliates. Francisco's last major league stint came with the Yankees in 2013 where he hit a whopping .114 in 21 games.

Infielder Danny Worth signs minor-league deal with Arizona Diamondbacks.

Worth is a utility infielder who has absolutely not hitting ability at either the major league or minor league levels but can play multiple infield positions which gives him some value to a major league club.

Josh Collmenter is projected to be the team?s Opening Day starter, according to general manager Dave Stewart.

This is only being said based on the fact that Collmenter would be the longest tenured Diamondback if the rotation were to stay as it is according to the team's depth chart. But really, it's December. Why are we worrying about who the Opening Day starter is right now. So much can happen between now and then that this just seems like a pointless discussion at this time.

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said Friday that the team is discussing internally whether to pursue free-agent pitchers Max Scherzer or James Shields.

It would be interesting to see the Diamonbacks go after either Shields or Scherzer, but given the make-up of their team, it's difficult to imagine them opening the vaults for a starter of that caliber and still have as many holes as they do. The could, of course, win with a competitive bid and then trade whomever they get, but that's a little too risky a play. The Diamondbacks have some nice parts, but they are far more thsan just an elite starter away from being a competitive contender.

The Miami Marlins have expressed interest in trading for Arizona Diamondbacks 1B/OF Mark Trumbo

Trumbo's name has come up in talks this offseason, and while the Diamondbacks haven't seemed to be exactly eager to trade him away, he is certainly in a position that he could be traded. Trumbo has huge power despite a low average, and with the Marlins looking to contend in 2015, they'll take the lower average for some added pop in Miami's lineup.

Eury De la Rosa was designated for assignment on Friday.

De La Rosa had shown some improvement last season and even earned himself up another call-up late in the season thanks to a spike in his ground ball rate. He'll likely accept the assignment and stay within the organization to serve as depth.

The Diamondbacks selected catcher Oscar Hernandez from the Rays in the Rule-5 draft on Thursday.

Hernandez was the top pick in Thursday's Rule 5 Draft. The good thing for Tampa Bay is that Hernandez has never played above Low-A, so it would be a stretch to think he would stick on a major league roster for the entire season. He broke out in the Venezuelan Summer League in 2011 to the tune of .402/.503/.732 triple slash with 21 home runs and 66 RBIs in 69 games. He is definitely a talented player, but isn't ready to remain on an active roster for 162 games.

Update: Red Sox and Diamondbacks are close to a deal that will send Wade Miley to Boston, source says.

No word on which names have been bandied about on the Red Sox end, but the Diamondbacks probably have a pretty steep price tag at the moment. Miley has a career 3.79 ERA but posted a career-best 8.18 K/9 last season. Still, it's difficult to imagine the Sox parting with that great of a prospect for him.

Nothing has been confirmed yet, but Boston has been in hot pursuit of the left-hander for quite some time. Expect a deal to be done soon.
