MLB Rumors: Arizona Diamondbacks Willing To Trade First Baseman

According to Nick Piecoro, the Diamondbacks are "willing" to trade Christian Walker before the deadline passes.

Walker's name has come up in the rumor mill lately, and this latest report by Piecoro only heightens that. The power-hitting first baseman will certainly get attention on the market, as he has the potential to provide more pop to a contender's roster. 

It's been a solid year for Walker when it comes to his power totals, as he has an impressive 23 home runs and 52 RBIs in 95 games. He has struggled hitting for contact, however, which his .207 batting average shows. Yet, no one can deny that he has a lot of power, and that should make plenty of teams call Arizona from here.
