ESPN’s Rob Neyer, in discussing relieving embattled D-backs reliever Juan Gutierrez, says that because he was pretty good last year and because he’s out of minor league options and likely won’t make it through waivers, “don’t be surprised if Hinch is gone before Gutierrez.”â†µ

Miguel Montero could be back soon for the D-Backs; will that free up Chris Snyder, who has a .357 OBP, 8 HR? Snyder perhaps a fit in Texas?â†µ
Snyder’s been on the trading block for a while now and it makes a ton of sense to get something for him now with the team’s season dead in the water.
