  • Home not where the wins are for D-backs

    Long road trips are a part of baseball that most would like to do without. Sure, in the big leagues, team personnel travel on chartered flights, stay in five-star hotels and eat in the finest restaurants, but there’s still comfort and relief in getting home. The Arizona Diamondbacks returned from a three-city, seven-game roadie to […]
  • D-backs’ Montero day-to-day with mild groin strain

    The injury bug continues to bite the Arizona Diamondbacks. Catcher Miguel Montero exited Monday night’s game against the Dodgers due to a mild left groin strain. Montero tweaked the groin when chasing after a pop foul ball behind home plate in the top of the sixth inning. “I didn’t feel any pop, thank God,” Montero […]
  • Josh Bell ‘blessed’ for opportunity with D-backs

    The Arizona Diamondbacks search for a third baseman has taken yet another turn Monday when the club recalled Josh Bell from Triple-A Reno and designated infielder Cody Ransom for assignment. Bell, who hit eighth in the lineup Monday night against the Dodgers, will serve as the D-backs’ starting third baseman for the foreseeable future. “He’s […]
  • Diamondbacks recall Josh Bell, designate Cody Ransom for assignment

    The Arizona Diamondbacks’ quest for a third baseman continues, and it has led the team to Josh Bell. Bell, acquired by the Diamondbacks from the Orioles on April 21, hit .381 with four home runs and 30 RBI in 26 games for Triple-A Reno. Originally selected by the Dodgers in the fourth round of the […]
  • Rumor: D-backs prepared to shop Joe Saunders

    The Diamondbacks, for all their early season struggles, still have one incredibly valuable thing going for them: Outstanding pitching depth. Between Ian Kennedy, Daniel Hudson, Wade Miley, Trevor Cahill, Joe Saunders and Patrick Corbin, the team has plenty of capable big league arms, and that doesn’t include minor leaguers Trevor Bauer and Tyler Skaggs, either […]
  • Chris Young hopes to give D-backs a lift

    Whaddya know? Things are starting to look up for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Thursday, the D-backs got a 9th-inning homer from Justin Upton in a 9-7 come-from-behind win over the Colorado Rockies. And Friday, they get center fielder Chris Young back from a shoulder injury that has had him on the disabled list since April 18. […]
  • Chris Young is back with the D-backs

    The Arizona Diamondbacks got a big boost Friday as the team reinstated outfielder Chris Young to the major league roster. Young, who was placed on the disabled list with a right shoulder contusion on April 18, hit .410 with five home runs and 13 RBI in the team’s first 11 games. He rejoins the D-backs […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: Another split in Denver

    Progress… The Diamondbacks, for about 14 innings in this series, played atrociously. They looked like they were going to be swept by the Rockies. And then, they showed a resiliency that I haven’t seen in quite some time. They battled back from a 4-1 deficit Thursday and hung on for a wild 9-7 win. Even […]
  • Give up on the D-backs? Five reasons you should

    So you say it’s too soon to give up on the Diamondbacks, that there is still time to turn things around. That sounds all well and good, but we don’t live in a world filled with unicorns and chocolate-paved roads. The truth is we overestimated just how good this team was, and while they may […]
  • Give up on the D-backs? Five reasons not to

    Life may not be good in Diamondbacks land these days, but things are going to get better. Don’t believe that? Your loss. About all that could go wrong for the team this year has, and they’re still not out of the race. Stick with them just a little longer and you’ll be rewarded with another […]
  • Rehab assignment a ‘possibility’ for D-backs Stephen Drew this weekend

    The Diamondbacks plan to send injured shortstop Stephen Drew on a minor league rehab assignment this weekend. “That’s a possibility,” said Drew of heading to Triple-A Reno for games starting Sunday. Drew, however, wouldn’t fully commit to any future travel. He wants to wait and see how his ankle responds after playing 9 innings for […]
  • Trevor Bauer promoted to Triple-A Reno

    Well, that didn’t take long. Arizona Diamondbacks’ pitching prospect Trevor Bauer continued his ascent toward the Major Leagues, earning a promotion to Triple-A Reno, according to a tweet from Chris Harris, the manager of media relations for the Jackson Generals. Just got word that Mobile starter Trevor Bauer was promoted to AAA this morning. That […]
  • Chris Young homers in grand fashion for Visalia

    Chris Young cannot return to the Diamondbacks soon enough. The outfielder, out since injuring his right shoulder on April 17, has been playing for Single-A Visalia as he works his way back into form. And, after only a couple of games, it seems like he has. Young went 1-for-4 Wednesday night with a grand slam, […]
  • Are D-backs considering sending Goldschmidt to minors?

    Paul Goldschmidt entered the season as the Diamondbacks’ starting first baseman, a player the team hoped could man the position for many years to come. It seemed like a good plan, given that the 24-year-old had batted .250 with eight home runs in just 156 at bats in 2011 after just crushing the ball in […]
  • D-backs GM Towers: Don’t pin offensive struggles on just Upton

    Justin Upton may be the face of the Diamondbacks’ offensive struggles, but he’s not the only one having issues at the plate. If he was, the D-backs would be hitting better than .248 as a team, a mark good enough for seventh in a woeful National League. “We said when we got here it’s going […]
