Davis “of interest” to D-backs
Though his name has been bandied about in trade discussions, D-backs left-hander Doug Davis has made no secret of his desire to stay in Arizona.
Davis’ agent Steve Canter declined to say whether he has had any specific discussions about a contract with the D-backs saying only that he and Arizona GM have a very good relationship and do talk.
“Doug is a player of interest to the organization,” Canter said of the D-backs. “How things play out with respect to the future remains to be seen.”
Davis is in the final year of a three-year $22 million extension he signed after being traded from Milwaukee to Arizona prior to the 2007 season.
Last month, Davis said he would consider returning to Arizona next season if he were to be dealt.
A couple of weeks ago, KTAR 620 AM in Phoenix reported that the D-backs wanted to re-sign Davis rather than trade him and The Arizona Republic reported Saturday that Davis was drawing little interest in the trade market.
