Evans remains a D-back — for now
Nick Evans remained a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday, but that could change in the coming days.
MLB Trade Rumors reported Saturday that Evans had signed with the Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan and would be removed from Arizona’s 40-man roster.
While that may happen sooner rather than later, Evans said Saturday that he was caught off guard by the report.
“I got a couple of texts this morning about it, but I didn’t know anything about that,” Evans said. “It’s definitely something that I’ve had my mind on that would be exciting in the future to do, but as of right now I’m still a Diamondback. There’s been some talks, but nothing official. As of right now I’m still a Diamondback.”
