The latest from around the National League West.

For some teams, the season ends earlier than they would like it to. The Arizona Diamondbacks are one of those teams. 2016 didn’t go the way the desert envisioned it.

That means it is not too early to look towards 2017, and what a potential D-Backs roster could look like. With a lot of players still under contract, and tough to move, an early look at the 2017 roster mirrors a lot of what this current roster looks like. If some bounce backs can happen in the rotation, that roster might be good enough to compete.
