Towers expects to be busy as Deadline nears

PHOENIX -- Even after bolstering his club's third-base situation Sunday morning by acquiring Chris Johnson from Houston, D-backs executive vice president and general manager Kevin Towers said he's not done looking at moves before Tuesday's Trade Deadline.

"I plan on being out at Dodger Stadium tomorrow in the working suite, continuing to work the phones," Towers said.

Towers added he'll be looking to strengthen the club's pitching if he does make any more trades.

"I think you can never have enough pitching," he said. "The teams that win, that go far in the postseason, they have a lot of pitching. I don't think you can have enough arms."

As for who would most likely be the players to go in return, Towers hinted at possibly moving an infielder.

"The way it is right now, as it stands, it's probably going to be tough to get them all enough at-bats," he said. "But we'll see what happens over the next few days."

D-backs shortstop Stephen Drew has been rumored to be on the trading block.
