  • Former GM Dipoto set D-backs up for success

    Jerry Dipoto is no longer with the Arizona Diamondbacks, though his imprint will last for a while. Daniel Hudson, Patrick Corbin and Tyler Skaggs were all acquired by the now-Angels GM, who had the unenviable task of trying to rebuild the Diamondbacks over a couple months back in 2010. The process involved trading pitchers Dan […]
  • Hudson rebounds well after rough last start

    It was just last Friday that Daniel Hudson pitched only 1.2 innings, giving up eight hits and six earned runs against the Oakland A’s. Things could have just as easily continued their downhill momentum Thursday night for Hudson. Aside from a strong first inning by the Texas Rangers, in which Elvis Andrus doubled and then […]

  • D-backs president Hall says Upton needs consistency

    Much was made over Ken Kendrick’s comments regarding Justin Upton last week, as the D-backs’ owner called his right fielder an “enigma” and said there is a need for consistency. So what, then, should we make of what team president Derrick Hall told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Thursday? “He’s the type of player […]
  • Towers willing to discuss six-man rotation

    Until recently, the consensus has been that the Arizona Diamondbacks would not call up Trevor Bauer unless there was an injury or a trade of a member of the current starting rotation. Arizona Sports 620’s
  • ESPN insider: Chase Headley would be a good fit for Arizona

    If indeed the Diamondbacks are looking to upgrade their third base situation, they may need look no further than San Diego. The Padres, who currently reside in their familiar spot in the NL West’s basement, might look to trim some payroll this summer. That could lead to them moving some decent players, including third baseman […]
  • ESPN MLB insider: D-backs are ‘starting to figure this out’

    ESPN MLB insider Tim Kurkjian believed the Arizona Diamondbacks were one of the better teams in the National League before the season began, and was not ready to concede that he (and most experts, really) were wrong. So, it should come as no surprise that the team’s recent surge has come as no surprise to […]
  • Gibson: Don’t sweat Hudson’s performance

    It’s hard to find fault in the Diamondbacks after their five game winning streak and return to .500. But it’s also hard to ignore pitcher Daniel Hudson’s performance last Friday. The pitcher, who has high expectations after coming off the DL in late May, was just awful against Oakland. The Athletics scored six runs and […]
  • Gibson: Upton feels better about himself

    So far, so good for Justin Upton. The underachieving right fielder made his return to the lineup during last weekend’s series against Oakland, batting 4 for 11 and adding three runs in the D-backs sweep of the A’s. Manager Kirk Gibson benched Upton for the final two games in the Colorado series. Gibby explained his […]
  • Mining for Paul Goldschmidt’s gold

    Paul Goldschmidt is a really bad source if you’re looking for information on Paul Goldschmidt. Even while atop the baseball world — as he is now, with some of the best offensive numbers in all of baseball over the last three weeks — the Diamondbacks’ 24-year-old first baseman cannot be flattered nor coaxed into saying […]
  • Is anyone punching All-Star ballots at Chase Field?

    Voting for the 2012 MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City has started, but apparently very few people attending games at Chase Field this season have received the memo. Major League Baseball released updated National League voting Tuesday, and not one Diamondbacks player appears among the leaders at any position. The league lists the top five […]
  • Could D-backs call up Trevor Bauer and keep Joe Saunders?

    The prevailing thought has been the Diamondbacks will not call up top prospect Trevor Bauer until a spot opens in the team’s starting rotation. Because, while the right-hander is tearing up Triple-A to the tune of a 3-0 record with a 1.97 ERA and 42 K’s in 32 innings, there simply is no reason to […]
  • D-backs to embark on crucial AL West road trip

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are surging — having just completed a three- game sweep of the Oakland Athletics to cap a 5-1 homestand. Are they finally hitting their stride? Kirk Gibson’s squad evened their record at 30-30, climbing their way back to .500 for the first time since May 5. They are getting healthy and gaining […]
  • Diamondbacks’ Kubel wins NL honor

    Some people questioned Kevin Towers’ decision to sign outfielder Jason Kubel in the offseason. Nowadays, though, those people are few and far between. Kubel was named co-NL Player of the Week Monday for his performance in the period ending June 10. In five games — four of which were wins — Kubel hit .409 with […]
  • Did Kendrick’s comments light a fire under D-backs?

    Last week was a strange one for the Arizona Diamondbacks. It started with managing general partner Ken Kendrick making some strong statements regarding his frustration with injured shortstop Stephen Drew and enigmatic right fielder Justin Upton. Kendrick feels Drew should be further along in his rehabilitation from a broken right ankle suffered last July and […]
  • Diamondbacks climb mountain, may have turned the corner

    The TV broadcasters referred to it as “Mount .500.” An even record. As many wins as losses. The epitome of mediocrity. And, for the 2012 Arizona Diamondbacks, an achievement worth talking about. Sunday’s 4-3 win over the A’s was the team’s fifth in a row, and seventh in its last eight games. The five-game mark […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs sweep Athletics

    Don’t look now, but here come the Arizona Diamondbacks. With the weekend sweep of the Oakland Athletics, the D- backs have now won a season-high five straight games. Everything finally seems to be coming together for the team picked by many to capture the National League pennant and go to the World Series. The offense, […]
  • Stryker Trahan signs with Diamondbacks

    Drafted 26th overall in the first round of the 2012 First Year Player Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks, catcher Stryker Trahan officially signed with the team on Saturday. Hours later he was spotted at Chase Field, taking batting practice with the big league club. Trahan hit back-to-back home runs during BP, and even landed one […]
  • D-backs’ Upton makes successful return to lineup

    Arizona Diamondbacks struggling slugger Justin Upton was back in the lineup Friday against the Oakland Athletics. Upton, who was benched for the last two games, went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a walk in the D-backs’ 9-8 walk-off win against the A’s. D-backs manager Kirk Gibson hoped some time off would help his right fielder […]
  • D-backs’ Goldschmidt modest about hitting streak

    Arizona Diamondbacks’ first baseman Paul Goldschmidt is on fire, amassing a career-high 15 game hitting streak and providing a much-needed spark to an offense that’s struggled to find its stride so far this season. Goldschmidt, who has hit .451 with a .492 on-base percentage during his streak, was a guest on Arizona Sports 620’s Burns […]
