D’Backs Offered Davis An Extension?

The D'Backs appear to have offered Doug Davis a one-year extension, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. Davis, who has been the subject of trade rumors since the Brewers claimed him on waivers, confirms that the D'Backs approached him with "an idea," but says it didn't appeal to him. Davis says he's more likely to test free agency after the season, but Piecoro suggests the club could offer him a two-year deal before then.

If not, the D'Backs will choose whether to offer Davis arbitration. If he accepts, they could be looking at a one-year deal worth about $10MM. If he rejects arbitration to sign elsewhere, the club would receive a draft pick as compensation for losing Davis, who will probably be a Type B free agent.

The Brewers and D'Backs still have two hours to work out a deal, so let's not rule one out.
