The Diamondbacks will not consider a Zack Greinke trade until July 2017

Earlier today Ken Rosenthal reported that the Dodgers approached the Diamondbacks about trading for Zack Greinke. That went no place. I suggested that, even if they were going to trade Greinke, they should wait until the offseason when there are more teams who might want to get involved.

Apparently, though, they aren’t even giving it a thought:

There are sillier ideas. The Dbacks were without A.J. Pollack until this past week due to an injury and hopefully they’ll have him all year. They still have Paul Goldschmidt. Shelby Miller can’t be worse. The system is something of a mess but there is talent at the big league level. Unlike 2016, there’s a decent chance not EVERYTHING will go wrong next year, so make someone bowl you over.
