Brandon Kintzler, who saved 29 games for the Twins this year before going to Washington at the trade deadline and pitching in a setup role, is attracting a crowd on the free agent market. The Cubs, Twins, Diamondbacks, Nationals and Rangers are among the teams with interest. If the Cubs sign Kintzler on top of the Brandon Morrow deal, it will mean they've officially moved on from Wade Davis.
Which major free agents are most likely to sign first? Which team's GM will be the most active, and what will be the most surprising move? Our experts dig in to what could happen as teams start wheeling and dealing.
The Diamondbacks added to their bullpen Thursday, acquiring former All-Star closer Brad Boxberger from the Rays.
Considering the way Martinez hit with Arizona, the Diamondbacks will certainly want to bring him back. But is there room in the payroll?
Arizona has a chance to consolidate its gains on the field, stemming from this season's playoff run with a pre-hot stove win projection of 84.3.
D-backs add Miller to 40-man roster
The Arizona Diamondbacks added LHP Jared Miller to their 40-man roster on Monday. Miller posted a 2.93 ERA with 94 strikeouts in 53 combined relief appearances between Double-A Jackson and Triple-A Reno last season. The D-backs' 40-man roster is now at 38 players.
Arizona reportedly isn't ruling out a reunion with its closer from last season.
Reinheimer rakes in AFL
Diamondbacks infield prospect Jack Reinheimer went 3-for-3 with a triple and run scored for the Salt River Rafters in the Arizona Fall League on Wednesday. The 25-year-old is now slashing .324/.418/.397 through 21 games this fall.
There's reason to believe Ray still hasn't hit his ceiling just yet. If he can cut down on his walks -- 71 in 162 innings -- he can become a guy who consistently posts sub-3.00 ERAs.

Goldschmidt posted a .297 batting average and .966 OPS with 36 home runs and 120 RBIs en route to his third career Silver Slugger win.
Pollock isn't as young as you might think, and his recent injury issues will probably limit him to a shorter contract.
Agent Scott Boras said he expects the Arizona Diamondbacks to be involved in the free-agent bidding for outfielder J.D. Martinez.
Arizona's struggles in the NLDS against Los Angeles provided a preview of what's probably to come for the D-backs: nice seasons stomped on by their $250 million payroll division rivals.
D-backs re-sign De La Rosa to minors deal
The Arizona Diamondbacks inked RHP Rubby De La Rosa to a minor league contract Tuesday. De La Rosa has been with the organization since 2014. The 28-year-old posted a 4.70 ERA in nine games last season and is expected to miss all of 2018 after undergoing his second Tommy John surgery in August.
