Staying in his lane
With the Trade Deadline looming, D-backs manager Torey Lovullo is staying focused on the team he currently has, not players he might possibly get.
"[General manager Mike Hazen] is taking care of those things," Lovullo said. "I have nothing to do with it. The only way I know it is that the front office takes care of all those areas and I just manage the guys that are here or brought in the clubhouse."
