Ellis to Diamondbacks?

According to the SF Chronicle, the Diamondbacks plan to pursue Mark Ellis when he becomes a free agent after this season. With Orlando Hudson out for the season, it is possible they would pursue him now. However, one baseball executive pointed out that the A's already have the Diamondbacks top prospects, so they would not be able to get too much in return. Orlando Hudson is supposedly looking for something between 13-15 million annually, so the Diamondbacks will likely pass on that for someone like Mark Ellis, his total contract will be worth around 15-18 million dollars.
