  • D-backs Blanco has successful surgery

  • Might be Wade Miley vs. Bryce Harper for rookie of the year

    They were both National League All-Stars. They are both in the thick of the playoff race. They are both eligible for the National League Rookie of the Year award.

    The Arizona Diamondbacks placed catcher Henry Blanco on the 15-day disabled list Monday and claimed Wil Nieves off waivers from the Colorado Rockies to take his place.

  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs drop series to Phillies

    The Arizona Diamondbacks lost two of three games to the Philadelphia Phillies this weekend at Citizens Bank Park. This was a series the Diamondbacks should have won.

  • MLB analyst: Arizona Diamondbacks played themselves back into race

    The Arizona Diamondbacks not only still have life, but they could very well contend for the National League West crown. ESPN MLB analyst Tim Kurkjian told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo Thursday don’t look now, but here come the D-backs. “The Diamondbacks have played themselves back into this thing,” Kurkjian said. “If I were […]
  • Kevin Towers has the D-backs in contention

    There are several reasons the D-backs enter the weekend in Philadelphia within striking distance of the National League West lead: 1) Manager Kirk Gibson has maintained a cool and steady hand throughout the season, not panicking when his team and one of his star players (Justin Upton) were at their worst. 2) Jason Kubel.
