Arizona Interested In Easley?

According to Steve Gilbert -, the Arizona Diamondbacks are interested in free agent Damion Easley. Easley hit .269 with six homers and 44 RBIs in 316 at-bats for the Mets last season. Easley just turned 39, and will most likely not be brought back by the Mets.

Easley’s agent Paul Cohen is quoted as saying, "I've talked to [Arizona GM] Josh Byrnes, we talked about a number of different issues and Damion was one of them. It's something that we might revisit."

Arizona might be interested in Easley due to his versatility; he played LF, 2B, 3B, 1B and SS for the Mets last year, and hits lefthanded pitching well.
