  • Kevin Towers on Junior Seau: ‘He would have been a great Diamondback’

    Kevin Towers knew Junior Seau. As a member of the San Diego Padres organization for the better part of 16 years, Towers was not only familiar with the former NFL linebackers work on the field, but with the man off it. And, as Towers told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Wednesday, Seau’s death came […]
  • Wade Miley named NL Rookie of the Month

    Wade Miley did not begin April as a household name in the Diamondbacks organization, but he finished the month as one for all of baseball. Miley, who went 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA for the Diamondbacks in 21 innings of work, was named the National League Rookie of the Month. Miley began the season as […]
  • Gibson not sure if there’s room for Vladimir Guerrero on D-backs

    Diamondbacks General Manager Kevin Towers went to the Dominican Republic to work out former All-Star Vladimir Guerrero. Guerrero, 37, spent last season with the Baltimore Orioles, where he hit .290 with 13 home runs and 63 RBI. While he’s certainly not the player he once was, if the guy can still hit, there will be […]
  • Rumor: No progress on Miguel Montero contract extension

    Miguel Montero is off to a solid start this season, hitting .257 with a pair of home runs and 13 RBI. He’s thrown base stealers out 58 percent of the time (which tops all of baseball), and done a good job managing the team’s pitching staff. Still, there is reportedly no progress on a new […]
  • D-backs’ Hudson tweets about progress

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have been without the services of right-handed starter Daniel Hudson since April 21 (retroactive to April 19) when he was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder impingement. Hudson is eligible to come off of the DL May 3, and although that return date looks highly unlikely, the D-backs’ […]
  • D-backs monthly miscellany

    This article was going to be about the struggles of the Diamondbacks’ bullpen. Then, I looked a little closer. Take lefties Joe Paterson and Mike Zagurski out of the D- backs’ pen and you’re looking at the second-best relief staff in the National League. Leave them in it, and the D- backs have the third-worst […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: Diamondbacks show talents in South Beach

    Do you hear that? I sure do. It’s the sound of a chorus singing hallelujah because finally Kirk Gibson made the move I (and several others) have been calling for. Patrick Corbin is in, Josh Collmenter is out. Talk about an immediate impact. Corbin was very good in his first big league start on Monday, […]
  • D-backs make roster moves around Corbin’s call-up

    The Diamondbacks called up pitcher Patrick Corbin from Double-A Monday so he could start against the Miami Marlins. In turn, the team optioned pitcher Joe Martinez to Triple- A and transferred infielder Geoff Blum from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL. The 22-year-old Corbin will be making his big league debut Monday, following a […]
  • D-backs Towers headed to DR to work out Guerrero

    Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers announced during Sunday’s broadcast that he is headed to the Dominican Republic to work out outfielder Vladimir Guerrero. Recognized undoubtedly for his hitting skills, Guerrero spent 2011 with the Baltimore Orioles, and hit .290 with 13 home runs and 63 RBIs. Guerrero, however, spent limited time in the outfield […]
  • Patrick Corbin replaces Josh Collmenter in D-backs rotation

    The future is now for Patrick Corbin. The 22-year-old heralded prospect will join the Diamondbacks rotation when he starts Monday against the Miami Marlins, taking the spot of struggling hurler Josh Collmenter. In four starts with Double-A Mobile, Corbin has amassed a 2-0 record and a pristine 1.67 ERA. The promising southpaw’s call-up isn’t surprising […]
  • D-backs manager Gibson may be sending Collmenter to the ‘pen

    Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has been very supportive of struggling pitcher Josh Collmenter this season, continually talking about how the right-hander was in little danger of losing his spot in the rotation. However, even Gibson’s loyalty has its limit, and perhaps an 0-2 record with a 9.82 ERA through five regular season starts is it. […]
  • Too late for ‘progress’ — time for Collmenter to get results

    (The above headline is brought to you by Captain Obvious himself.) Josh Collmenter has gotten as much attention as any Diamondback since mid-Spring Training. Everyone wants to know — Is he in danger of losing his spot in the rotation? How many more sub-par starts will he be allowed? Have hitters adjusted to his delivery? […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs fall flat vs. Phillies

    In most occasions, kicking someone when they’re down is frowned upon. In the Arizona Diamondbacks case, it’s what they should have done to the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies are missing three of the biggest pieces to their team in Ryan Howard, Cliff Lee and Chase Utley, and their offense had been terrible throughout the season […]
  • D-backs’ GM: Drew close to next step in recovery

    With each passing day, injured Diamondbacks’ shortstop Stephen Drew continues to progress and could be headed out for a minor league assignment in the near future. “He’s getting close,” Diamondbacks’ General Manager Kevin Towers told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Tuesday. “I think each and every day he’s getting better and better and feeling […]
  • D-backs’ Justin Upton finally breaks out

    The Arizona Diamondbacks and their fans have been patient in waiting for right fielder Justin Upton to break out offensively. The two-time All-Star got off to a slow start in 2012 and then injured his left thumb while sliding into a base on April 18. But finally, Monday night, Upton had a breakthrough offensively, knocking […]
