  • Diamondbacks farm system shows dramatic improvement

    What a difference a year can make. All the way back in 2011, Baseball America ranked the Diamondbacks’ farm system as the 22nd-best in all of baseball. Not good. Things are different now, though, as the same site ranks Arizona’s farm system fourth, behind only Texas, Kansas City and San Diego. The D-backs can attribute […]
  • Towers: Experience will benefit Goldschmidt

    Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt has long had a supporter in General Manager Kevin Towers. “All you have to do is look at this kid’s history,” Towers told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Wednesday. “He’s nailed it at every single level. He came up here in a pennant race and did nothing but have […]
  • Towers: Corbin close to being Major League ready

    The talented plethora of Diamondbacks pitching prospects have lived up to the billing this spring, which has pleased General Manager Kevin Towers. “We’ve had a lot of our young kids really throw the ball well,” Towers told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf on Wednesday. “Pat Corbin was outstanding Tuesday against a good Giants club […]

  • Gibson: ‘I feel like we’re the underdog’

    They are the defending National League West champions, winning 94 games — third-most in franchise history; yet, manager Kirk Gibson Wednesday called the Diamondbacks underdogs heading into the 2012 season. “That’s just the attitude you’ve got to take,” he explained. “You can’t take anything for granted. “I think we know we’re good,” Gibson continued. “But […]
  • Bauer’s impressive spring a reflection of maturity

    Heralded prospect Trevor Bauer has been the feel good story for the Arizona Diamondbacks this spring, despite not earning a spot in the team’s rotation.

  • Kirk Gibson impressed with Patrick Corbin

    Trevor Bauer gets much of the attention, but Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has been just as impressed with another pitching prospect: Patrick Corbin. “I think he can have a huge impact on our season,” Gibson said. Both Bauer and Corbin are scheduled to pitch Tuesday against the Giants. Gibson said the plan is for Bauer […]
  • Parra’s defense stellar as usual

    There’s a legitimate reason that Arizona Diamondbacks left fielder Gerardo Parra earned a Gold Glove last season, and the fans at Phoenix Municipal Stadium saw that reason Monday. Parra made two diving catches, including a spectacular snag to rob Oakland catcher Kurt Suzuki of extra bases to end the third inning of the D-backs’ 6-5 […]
  • Manager Gibson not worried about Trevor Cahill

    Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson continues to give newcomer Trevor Cahill time to find his groove and fit in with his new club.

  • Report: Collmenter to start season in rotation

    It looks like Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Josh Collmenter’s spot in the rotation is safe for now. #Dbacks RHP Collmenter will open the season in the rotation, manager Gibson says, putting to rest speculation he may open in the pen. — Jack Magruder (@JackMagruder) March 17, 2012 There was speculation that Collmenter could lose his starting […]
  • Gibson: Defense needs to be checked

    It’s time for the Diamondbacks to focus less on the hitting and make an effort to step up defensively. The D-backs’ struggles at the plate during Spring Training have led to neglecting defense. “Is your hitter a position player? In general, you’re coming in, you’re working on your hitting, you’re working on your fielding a […]
  • Gibson preaching defense to Goldschmidt

    Nobody questions the offensive power of Paul Goldschmidt. The first baseman crushed a grand slam over the left field wall in the Diamondbacks’ win over the Cubs Thursday at Hohokam Park. But manager Kirk Gibson is preaching the importance of playing strong, fundamental defense to his young player. “I told him it’s defense number one, […]
  • Gibson remains confident in ‘talented’ team

    Spring Training hasn’t gone according to plan for the defending NL West champion Arizona Diamondbacks. Many teams don’t put stock in the wins or losses, but instead the readiness of their players for the grind of a taxing regular season. The D-backs didn’t expect to drop nine of their first 13 Cactus League games this […]
  • Gibson will continue to evaluate prospects

    The D-backs made their first round of cuts Thursday, in an effort to trim their roster and get players in camp more consistent appearances. Meanwhile, the club’s buzzworthy pitching prospects remain in camp. “We’ve kept Skaggs and Bauer and Corbin and Brewer — which are mostly starting pitchers,” D-backs manager Kirk Gibson explained. “So we […]
