Yesterday we heard that Jarrod Saltalamacchia had four teams interested in him. Today the other three can look for a catcher elsewhere:
Hearing Jarrod Saltalamacchia expected to sign with Dbacks once he clears waivers.

Saltalamacchia has hit a disappointing .209/.310/.351 in 123 games dating back to the start of last season and is no great shakes defensively. He was owed $7 million this season and $8 million next season by the Marlins, but they’ll eat that now. He’s a bad deal on that contract, but he looks just fine coming in at the minimum. Especially if you have zero in the catching department like the Diamondbacks do.
