• Right-hander Bo Schultz has been added to the group of prospects the D-backs are sending to compete in the Arizona Fall League. Between Double-A Mobile and Triple-A Reno, Schultz made 37 appearances (16 starts) this year, compiling a 3.35 ERA and striking out 75 batters over 104 2/3 innings.

• Appearing in all but two of the D-backs' 151 games this season, Paul Goldschmidt won't be easing into the offseason over the final two weeks of the year, D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said Wednesday.

"He's actually pretty fresh for as many games as he has played," Gibson said. "He has been our most consistent guy, he has been our most dangerous guy and he wants to play. He's a pretty good player, in fact, you might say he's the Most Valuable Player. I could argue that."
