    The Arizona Diamondbacks and their fans have been patient in waiting for right fielder Justin Upton to break out offensively.

But finally, Monday night, Upton had a breakthrough offensively, knocking […]

But the team hopes the same mindset on Monday will continue […]

  • ‘Forgotten’ Miley just keeps plugging along

    There is a lot of local and national buzz about the stable of young pitching arms GM Kevin Towers and the Arizona Diamondbacks have put together.

    With 146 games left on the schedule, it’s not quite time to start panicking if you’re an Arizona Diamondbacks fan.

  • Diamondbacks look to end five-game slide

    The Diamondbacks are mired in their longest losing streak since a six-game slide in August of last season; and their five-game home losing streak is the longest since 2010. Meanwhile, the Braves have tied a club record with six straight wins against the Diamondbacks. Ian Kennedy will try to change all that this afternoon. “He’s […]

  • 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 […]

    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.

  • D-backs’ outfield suddenly banged up

    Depth is a good thing on any baseball roster.

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 […]

    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.
