What's next for D-backs in wake of Goldy trade?


PHOENIX -- Following the trade of first baseman Paul Goldschmidt to the Cardinals on Wednesday, one question remains: What's next for the D-backs?


If the team decides to move second baseman Ketel Marte to center to replace Pollock, then Escobar could play second.


While they realize that their team looks weaker on paper than it did at the end of the season, the D-backs' hope is that they can be competitive in 2019, while building for the future.


Some of those pieces came in the Goldschmidt trade with pitcher Luke Weaver fortifying the rotation and Carson Kelly giving them a catcher under control for the next six years.


Add in an expected seven selections in the first 80 picks of the 2019 Draft along with talented Minor Leaguers a year or two away and you can see a wave building for the future.
