  • D-backs want to look internally before making trade

    When Kevin Towers was hired as the general manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks he had two goals in mind: get the team to play .500 or better baseball and develop a strong farm system. So far, so good. While many outside the organization are surprised to see the D-backs six games over .500, Towers thought […]

  • Diamondbacks should resist urge to deal prospects

    Just a half-game out of first in the NL West, the Arizona Diamondbacks are likely to be more buyer than seller at this year’s MLB trade deadline. That concept concerns Sports 620 KTAR’s Mark Asher. “As of right now, what I believe, I’m telling you right now I’m not adding a player that would cost […]
  • Diamondbacks bring up Wily Mo Pena

  • Potential Arizona Diamondbacks wish list

    Despite losing three of their past four series and four of the last six games, the Arizona Diamondbacks are only a half-game out of first place.

  • Upton the best player in National League — last week

    To say Justin Upton had a pretty good week would be an understatement. The D-backs’ right fielder collected 16 hits (good for a .552 batting average), seven RBI and one walk-off homer during the seven day stretch, and on Monday he added a National League Player of the Week honor as well. In all Upton […]
  • If D-backs are to contend they’ll need to add a bat

    It is pretty apparent, at this point in the season, that the Arizona Diamondbacks are a pretty good baseball team. Just a half-game behind the San Francisco Giants, the D-backs can conceivably win the NL West — if they make some additions. “It’s becoming more and more apparent that the Diamondbacks, they need a bat, […]
  • Who will play DH for D-backs this week?

    With the Arizona Diamondbacks packing their bags and heading on a six-game road trip to American League ballparks they’ll need a designated hitter.

  • Swinging more is the key to Upton’s success

    Name an offensive statistic and chances are Justin Upton is getting better at it.

    Daniel Hudson was traded from the Chicago White Sox to the Arizona Diamondbacks July 31st, 2010. On June 17, 2011 the righ-hander showed his former team what they are missing out on. “Obviously it was a little bit special, but I didn’t have any different mentality going out there than I have the whole year, […]
  • D-backs close to Giants in standings, not in talent

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have been outscored 36-26 by the San Francisco Giants as the defending World Series champs have taken seven of nine games from team in Sedona Red.
