  • D-backs acquire Josh Bell from Orioles

    The Arizona Diamondbacks’ busy day of roster moves continued Saturday when Executive Vice President and General Manager Kevin Towers announced the team acquired minor league infielder Josh Bell from the Baltimore Orioles for a player to be named. The 25-year-old switch hitter was hitting .094 with 2 doubles, a homer and 3 RBI in 9 […]
  • D-backs send Hudson to DL, recall Albaladejo

    The Arizona Diamondbacks have recalled right-handed pitcher Jonathan Albaladejo from Triple-A Reno and have placed right-handed pitcher Daniel Hudson on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury, according to D-backs’ Executive Vice President & General Manager Kevin Towers. Albaladejo, 29, appeared in 8 relief appearances with Reno in 2012, and was 1-1 with […]
  • On a tough night, Henry Blanco wins Gibson’s praise

    It was a routine pop fly to shallow right field — the kind your second baseman lollygags beneath — but you would never know it from the way 40-year-old catcher Henry Blanco left the batter’s box. Such hustle rarely rewards. The 13-year veteran has been around long enough to know that. Thursday night, though, was […]
  • D-backs offense struggling without Justin Upton

    Justin Upton will not be in manager Kirk Gibson’s lineup for the fourth consecutive game Friday when the D-backs host the Atlanta Braves, and his absence hurts even more now that outfielder Chris Young is on the disabled list. Upton’s been out do to a thumb injury that occurred during the team’s opening-weekend series with […]
  • Gibson confident in D-backs’ outfield

    The Diamondbacks were dealt a couple of blows this week, losing outfielders Justin Upton and Chris Young to injury not even a month into the season. And both are eager to get back on the field. “CY, if he wasn’t on the DL, he’d tell me he wants to play. I’m serious,” D-backs manager Kirk […]
  • D-backs prepared for life without Chris Young

    What seemed like an overhauled roster just a few weeks ago has turned into a life saver for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
  • Justin Upton knows his defense is a work in progress

    For all he can do at the plate, Justin Upton still has his share of struggles in the outfield. The 24-year-old who committed 13 errors in 2011 already has one this season, and that number does not include balls he’s misplayed in right. Needless to say, Upton still has room to improve defensively. And he […]
  • A strange Tuesday night for the D-backs

    “You can’t predict baseball,” the old cliché goes. We learned that for the millionth time on Tuesday night. I first paid attention to the strangeness of Tuesday night when, in the top of the second inning, I noticed relief pitcher Jared Hughes warming up in the Pirates bullpen. Pirates starting pitcher Jeff Karstens did give […]
  • D-backs’ Young lands on disabled list

    Talk about your bad timing. After getting off to a red-hot start, Arizona Diamondbacks’ center fielder Chris Young has landed on the 15-day disabled list with a right shoulder contusion. Veteran Cody Ransom had his contract selected from Triple-A Reno to fill Young’s roster spot. Young was batting .410 with 5 home runs and 13 […]
  • D-backs’ outfield suddenly banged up

    Depth is a good thing on any baseball roster. When navigating through the rigors of a 162-game major league season, injuries happen, it’s good to have options on your bench that can come in and do the job when called upon. One of the reasons why the Arizona Diamondbacks were the pick of many pundits […]
  • Monday’s heroes Saunders and Hill among unsung D-backs

    Chris Young, who has had a ludicrously-impressive first 10 games of the season, stole the show on Monday night at Chase Field, as the Diamondbacks beat the Pirates 5-1. Young went 3-for-4 and hit his fifth home run of the season, raising his batting average to .405 and his on- base-plus-slugging percentage to 1.392. After […]
  • Ailing Justin Upton gets Tuesday off, to see hand specialist

    Justin Upton missed Tuesday night’s game against the Pirates, as the Diamondbacks have elected to sit him due to a thumb injury he suffered in the team’s Opening Weekend series against the Giants. Upton, who is hitting just .212 with 0 home runs and 0 RBI, has struggled mightily. “He’s not swinging the bat well,” […]
  • Adjustments help Young get off to hot start

    If you look at the leaders among the triple crown categories in the National League, you’ll find only two players who are in the top five in all three: Dodgers’ outfielder Matt Kemp and Diamondbacks’ center fielder Chris Young. Young, a career .242 hitter, joined Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 620 Tuesday to explain […]
  • Gibson reaffirms faith in Josh Collmenter

    Josh Collmenter has pitched just seven innings in two starts this season, allowing 11 runs (10 earned) and 10 hits while walking four and striking out six. The right-hander will carry those struggles along with a 12.86 ERA into his next start Thursday against the Atlanta Braves, seemingly with his spot in the rotation on […]
  • D-backs’ Roberts ‘chipping in’ for community

    Arizona Diamondbacks’ third baseman Ryan Roberts can do it all. He’s driven in six runs for the D-backs, who are off to a solid start in 2012. He’s become a folk hero of sorts for the Chase Field faithful. And now, he’s “chipping in” for the community. Through popchips®, Roberts is one of fifteen “game […]
  • D-backs bring solid pitching to Colorado series

    The Arizona Diamondbacks continue to turn heads as they swept the San Francisco Giants in opening weekend and won their three-game series in San Diego. Arizona is heading up to Colorado for three games against the Rockies, who are 2-4 after facing the Houston Astros and the Giants. Daniel Hudson starts Friday against the Rockies’ […]
  • D-backs president Hall enjoying team’s fast start

    Diamondbacks President Derrick Hall would like to see his team get off to a fast start. “I don’t want to have to play catch-up,” he said. At 4-1 the Diamondbacks have done pretty much exactly that, but Hall, as a guest on Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf, said it all evens out. “A lot […]
  • D-backs’ Drew: Spring training starts now

    Diamondbacks shortstop Stephen Drew played in an extended spring game Thursday, his first game action since suffering a season-ending ankle injury on July 20. “Overall, it was good,” he said. “It was good to be back out there.” Drew started the game on defense, turning a double play to end the first inning. Then, after […]
  • Extended spring training game next for Drew

    When spring training started for the Arizona Diamondbacks, there was cautious optimism that shortstop Stephen Drew would be able to appear in some Cactus League games. That didn’t happen so Drew, who broke his right ankle in a game last July 20, started the season on the disabled list. The next step in Drew’s recovery […]
  • ESPN insider: MLB’s best ‘pen carrying NL’s best team

    “I know this is over-used and it’s a cliché, but if you don’t have a good bullpen these days you’re dead,” ESPN MLB insider Tim Kurkjian told Arizona Sports 620’s Burns and Gambo. Well then, it’s a good thing the D-backs have a good bullpen. Sure it’s early in the season, but the fact that […]
