Lackey passes on Diamondback's offer, Buchholz steps in

Posted On: Jun 14, 2018   |   Posted By: Yardbarker

The Diamondbacks made a minor league offer to right-hander John Lackey this offseason, writes USA Today's Bob Nightengale, but the veteran righty passed on the opportunity. Coincidentally, Lackey's friend and former teammate, Clay Buchholz, ultimately wound up in the D-backs organization on a similar deal and is now thriving in a rotation that has been hit hard by injuries. “I don't bring that up to him now,” joked Buchholz, who still keeps in touch with Lackey. “I don't want to make him mad. But Lackey is a bulldog. I fully expect him to be with some club at some point this year. I know for a fact that he still works out and keeps his body ready.” Both Lackey and Buchholz, of course, are known commodities to D-backs GM Mike Hazen and assistant GMs Amiel Sawdaye and Jared Porter, each of whom has previously worked in the Boston front office.More out of Arizona...
