  • 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 […]
  • D-backs’ Daniel Hudson hopes to return Memorial Day weekend

    For the first time in four weeks, Diamondbacks starter Daniel Hudson took the mound in a game-like setting. He pitched in an extended spring training game against the Oakland A’s at Papago Park in Phoenix Wednesday morning. “It went okay,” he said following his 54-pitch effort. “My arm feels great; just the command is still […]
  • ESPN MLB insider on D-backs: Not a dire situation

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are sputtering along with a 16-21 record, looking nothing like a team that can contend for the National League crown. Already 8.5 games back of the NL West-leading Dodgers, some are prepared to write the D-backs off. Not so fast, says ESPN MLB insider Tim Kurkjian. “If the Diamondbacks can just hang […]
  • Justin Upton’s responsibility

    Winston Churchill once said, “Responsibility is the price of greatness.” Even though I know Churchill was not thinking of baseball, the Arizona Diamondbacks or Justin Upton when he said this, watching Justin Upton play the game of baseball for the Arizona Diamondbacks makes me think of Churchill. Writing the paragraph above made me think of […]
  • D-backs’ Gibson responds to Kershaw…sort of

    Los Angeles Dodgers Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Clayton Kershaw had some interesting postgame comments following his team’s 3-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday night. Tuesday, while a guest of Burns & Gambo on Arizona Sports 620, Arizona skipper Kirk Gibson was asked about Kershaw’s comment that there was “no place” for the D-backs’ aggressive, […]
  • D-backs base running: aggressive or sloppy?

    Since April 17 (the night Chris Young injured his right shoulder against Pittsburgh), the Arizona Diamondbacks are averaging 3.6 runs per game and hitting .246 as a team. Not suprisingly, they’re 8-18 during that stretch. When you’re a struggling offensive team, you can’t afford to squander precious scoring opportunities. The D-backs have done that — […]
  • Dodgers’ Kershaw on ‘GibbyBall’: There’s no place for that

    To say Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw is no friend of the Diamondbacks would be an understatement. The 2011 NL Cy Young Award winner, who was ejected from a game last September after throwing at Gerardo Parra, was on the receiving end of some revenge Monday night courtesy of Diamondbacks ace Ian Kennedy. Sort of. Kershaw […]
  • For the D-backs, history will teach us nothing

    It wasn’t a big hit for the former front man of The Police; in fact, it wasn’t a hit at all. Yet all this talk about what happened to the Diamondbacks one year ago Monday has embedded a very old song by Sting in my head. History Will Teach Us Nothing. Surely by now you […]
  • Kennedy, Kershaw swap brush-back pitches

    The rivalry between Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw and the Arizona Diamondbacks resurfaced Monday night. But this time it was D-backs starter Ian Kennedy who drew first blood. The two hurlers swapped brush-back pitches in their first matchup of the 2012 season, which brought back memories of Kershaw and Gerardo Parra’s heated exchange last […]
  • MLB analyst on D-backs woes: ‘It’s an epidemic right now’

    Little has gone right for the Arizona Diamondbacks of late. They’re struggling at the plate, on the mound, in the field and, not surprisingly, on the scoreboard. Former MLB manager and current MLB Network analyst Larry Bowa, as a guest on Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf, said while the team is dealing with some […]
  • Kennedy vs. Kershaw could be turning point

    Today is May 14. A year ago today, Josh Collmenter beat the Dodgers in Los Angeles, holding them to two hits and no runs while his team won 1-0 and, more importantly, snapped a six-game losing streak. Of course, this win was the impetus in a historic Diamondbacks stretch that gave the team 18 wins […]
