  • A glance at Justin Upton’s slump

    Streak, slump, and anomaly are all resident to baseball. Josh Hamilton is streaking, Albert Pujols is slumping, and Phil Humber (1-2; 6.83 ERA) tossed a perfect game a few weeks ago. These things come and go. Hamilton won’t hit 92 home runs this year, although his streak has him on pace to do so. And […]
  • Encouraging news on the D-backs injury front

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are getting healthy. Or, at least, they’re getting healthier. Arizona Sports 620’s Jeremy Foster saw an extended spring training game at Salt River Fields Thursday, and spoke with Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers afterwards. Chris Young Towers said outfifelder Chris Young, who has been on the DL since April 18 due to a […]
  • What’s wrong with J.J. Putz?

    One of the side effects of losing streaks in Major League Baseball is that it’s tough to get regular work for your closer. With the Arizona Diamondbacks riding a 4-game losing streak entering Wednesday night’s series finale with the St. Louis Cardinals, such was the case with J.J. Putz. Putz hadn’t been used since last […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: D-backs swept by Cardinals

    The night is always darkest before the dawn. That’s what the Diamondbacks and their fans have to say to themselves after their worst series of the season, a sweep at the hands of the defending champion Cardinals. Lets go ahead and start with Monday’s game… Obviously, you don’t expect Joe Saunders to have a top- […]
  • Wade Miley — stopper?

    When the Diamondbacks take the field Wednesday night, they’ll carry with them a four-game losing streak and a sub-.500 record that reflects losses in six of their last seven games. But it may be okay, because Wade Miley’s on the mound. (If you want to tweet that last line, be sure to include the hashtag: […]
  • D-backs GM Towers won’t comment on Montero negotiations

    Until he either signs a contract extension or leaves as a free agent, Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero will be the subject of constant rumors and speculation. The free-agent-to-be is hitting .278 on the season and leading the Diamondbacks with 16 RBI, so it’s no surprise the team would like to bring him back. And, according […]
  • D-backs, Red Sox could look into Kevin Youkilis deal

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are not getting much out of their third basemen. D-backs manning the hot corner have combined to hit just .214 with an on-base percentage of .291, numbers that are second-worst on the team behind only the pitcher spot. Needless to say, as popular as Ryan Roberts is and as well as Cody […]
  • Struggles continue for Kennedy, D-backs

    Ian Kennedy is the ace of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ pitching staff. The right-hander won a National League-high 21 games a year ago, and like number one starters are supposed to, put a stop to four losing streaks of three or more games, beating the likes of Cliff Lee, Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke in the […]
  • D-backs’ Hudson moves forward in recovery

    Arizona Diamondbacks hurler Daniel Hudson took an encouraging step in his recovery Tuesday when he threw off a mound for the first time since a right shoulder injury forced him onto the disabled list April 21. Manager Kirk Gibson said the team will wait to see how Hudson’s shoulder responds in the coming days before […]
  • Ransom, Roberts competing for time at 3B

    Ryan Roberts is one of the most popular members of the Arizona Diamondbacks and played a key role in the team’s 2011 National League West championship. Cody Ransom is a 36-year-old journeyman who has never had more than 79 at-bats in a season during his major league career, during which he’s played for five teams. […]
  • Upton bounces around lineup in search of spark

    Kirk Gibson could not have expected the reaction he got after deciding to bat Justin Upton second in Monday night’s game. Upton, you know, has been the team’s number three hitter for the better part of the last year, so the idea of moving him up in the order was one much of the Valley […]
  • D-backs manager Gibson won’t overreact to mistakes

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have been far from perfect this season. At just 14-16 and losers of three straight, the team has had issues at the plate, in the field and, most surprisingly and likely most frustratingly, on the basepaths. Gerardo Parra fell victim to a pickoff move in a loss to the Mets in New […]
  • D-backs still have no timetable for Stephen Drew

    Stephen Drew took one more step towards his return. The Diamondbacks shortstop played five innings Tuesday of an extended spring training game against the Colorado Rockies at Salt River Fields. It’s the most innings he’s played thus far as he works his way back from a fractured right ankle last July. Drew—batting second each inning, […]
  • D-backs getting closer to health

    The east coast was not kind to the Arizona Diamondbacks. After taking three of four from the Miami Marlins, Arizona finished up 2-4 against the Washington National and New York Mets to settle for a 5-5 road trip. And while the club is glad to be home, there is even better news on the horizon […]
  • D-backs-Cardinals a telling series

    The defending world champion St. Louis Cardinals are in town and they didn’t just bring their World Series rings. The 2012 Cardinals arrive at Chase Field with the best run differential in all of baseball, a 17-11 record, a surprisingly-good pitching staff that has the second-best team ERA in the National League, and a scary-good […]
  • Touch ‘Em All: It’s good to head home

    I posed the idea after the last series, but the more I think about it, the more I think it should happen. Wondering what I’m talking about? I’m talking about David Wright in a Diamondbacks jersey. Sure, there are a lot of things that have to be right (pardon the pun) for the third baseman […]
  • D-backs president Hall remains optimistic about team

    “I feel pretty good.” With those words, Diamondbacks President Derrick Hall told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf that the team’s issues with injuries, intermittent offense and a shaky bullpen are not a concern of his. “I look last year at this time, I think we were 11-15 in April, this year we’re two games […]
  • Diamondbacks bullpen having its share of struggles

    Once upon a time, the Arizona Diamondbacks’ bullpen was one of the best in baseball, able to lock games down when the team had a lead and keep them in the game long enough for the offense to rally late. Oh, what a difference one season makes. The Diamondbacks are carrying a bullpen ERA of […]
  • D-backs’ Patrick Corbin’s time is now

    “It’s your time now,” Patrick Corbin’s father told his son before the 22-year-old southpaw toed the rubber for his major league debut Monday against the Miami Marlins. Those words indeed proved prophetic as Corbin showed incredible poise and maturity en route to his first big league victory. The left-hander tossed 5 2/3 innings, struck out […]
  • 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 […]
