Top arms out of reach for D-Backs, but Kenta Maeda could be option


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart has made it clear he would like to improve the team's starting rotation, according to The Arizona Republic. Stewart could begin getting closer to his goal as early as this week at the general manager's meetings.

"I don't know if we get it accomplished this week," Stewart said, "but by the time we start the season I'd really like to try to improve our starting rotation.

"If we can clearly improve our team, then I'm not hesitant to make a trade. I don't know that we will or that we won't. What I know is that there's some clubs out there that we've had some conversations with that includes pitching, pretty good pitching. It's a matter of if we can make it happen or not."

Stewart doesn't think the Diamondbacks can afford to pursue free-agent starting pitchers Max Scherzer, Jon Lester, James Shields. However, Arizona might be in the mix for Japanese right-hander Kenta Maeda, if the Hiroshima Carp make him available through the posting system.

"I think that he's going to be a great addition to the club that's going to be able to get his services," Stewart said. "We definitely have interest in him."
