MLB Rumors: Diamondbacks open to making changes if struggles continue


The Arizona Diamondbacks came into the 2014 season under the belief that they would be able to compete with the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants for the National League West crown.

But ten games into the season, both the Dodgers and Giants have beaten up the D’Backs and they sit with a 2-8 record, four games out of first place.

It’s bad said that you can’t win a divisional in April, but you can certainly lose it and while the Diamondbacks front office isn’t panicking by any stretch, they’re open to making changes if the woes continue.

#Dbacks GM Kevin Towers told @DougandWolf987 his team is not panicking but need to improve or changes will be made. Record is 2-8.

Both San Francisco and Los Angeles should find themselves flirting with 90-win territory this season, so it’s going to take some solid play for Arizona to keep pace.

For now it looks as if the waters will remain calm, but give it another thirty or so games and if things still look bleak, changes could be on the horizon.
