Eliminated in the Division Series

Chris Young and Addison Reed – Boston Red Sox 

Chris Young has not played for the Diamondbacks in years, but he had a memorable time in Arizona and quickly became a fan favorite.

Young began his major league career with the D-backs in 2006, was apart of the 2007 and 2011 postseason runs and made his first NL All-Star team in 2010 and finished that season with 27 home runs and 91 RBI.

Young played in one game for the Red Sox in the ALDS against the Houston Astros and had a hit in two at-bats.

Addison Reed looked more like the pitcher that struggled as a reliever with the Diamondbacks for part of the 2015 season. In three apperances, Reed had a 7.71 ERA (2 ER in 2.1 innings pitched).

Bryan Shaw and Trevor Bauer – Cleveland Indians 

Remember Bryan Shaw? He spent his first two seasons in the majors, in 2011 and 2012, with the Diamondbacks. As a 23-year-old in 2011, Shaw made 33 apperances and had a 2.54 ERA (8 earned runs in 28.1 IP). In 2012, he made 64 apperances and complied a 3.49 ERA.

Trevor Bauer had a controversial time in Arizona. The Diamondbacks let the promising right hander go because they disagreed with his unique pregame routine. In two postseason starts, Bauer did not give up an earned run in 8.1 innings. The D-backs may have made a mistake letting Bauer go.

Max Scherzer and Oliver Perez – Washington Nationals 

Max Scherzer might be the worst player the D-backs have ever traded. The right-hander who might win another NL CY Young this season pitched in two games (one start) and gave up five runs (three earned) in 7.1 innings.

Oliver Perez recorded a 3.10 ERA in 48 games (29.0 innings pitched). The lefty pitched an inning for the Nats in the postseason and gave up one hit.
