07:18 AM ET 06.28 | While trade speculation from across the NL West is on the rise in Marlins righty Ricky Nolasco, the Diamondbacks haven't shown interest. Why? The D-Backs are not interested in "renting" a potential free agent -- and if they acquire a starting pitcher, they will want him to be a significant upgrade over their major league-ready prospects, sources say. Two starters, in particular, interest the D-Backs, according to sources. One, Brewers right-hander Yovani Gallardo, is available. The other, Cubs right-hander Jeff Samardzija, only could be had for an "overwhelming" package -- and the two clubs have not engaged in discussions, sources say. ... The D-Backs, though, aren't prepared to move on any pitcher just yet.

I've always liked Samardzija. He works at a great pace and it's hard to pick up his ball.

The D-Backs, though, aren't prepared to move on any pitcher just yet.

So, the point of this article is?

Theo would almost have to demand a player playing at the MLB level right now amongst top level talent at the farm. If he intends on contending in the next few years anyway. The Shark is a solid pitcher w/ a very young arm from not throwing all those summer league games b/c of football at ND.

I know these rumors are not serious because no one has been dangled yet.

Samardjiza for Bloomquist and minor league prospects. Gallardo for Goldscmidt straight up. Cubs and Brewers should see just how bad they want the two pitchers. Fox sports must thin k the Cubs and Brewers would just hand over these pitchers for a handful of prospects between the two. Again just a rumor.

I guess this means Samardzja will get hurt soon.
