Arizona Diamondbacks: 2 Trade Candidates Heading to Opening Day

The Arizona Diamondbacks are heading into this season with low expectations. As a result, they are reportedly listening to offers for two specific players at the time of this writing. Let's take a look at them now. 

Christian Walker: The Diamondbacks made it known last season that they were willing to hear trade offers for Christian Walker. When noting that he is coming off a career year and his trade value is at its highest, the rebuilding Diamondbacks certainly could look to take advantage of this. Several contenders around the league would love to add his power to their lineup and would pay up a lot to get it.

Mark Melancon: After a disastrous 2022 season, veteran reliever Mark Melancon has been placed on the 
trading block by the Diamondbacks. Although he is coming off of a bad year, there could still be some teams willing to take a chance on him when noting that he has been an effective reliever for several seasons before it.
