assignment in AAA Reno. As Jack Magruder from Fox Sports Arizona reported,
#Dbacks Eaton singles and scored in five ABs as Class AAA Reno DH and RHP Charles Brewer throws eight scoreless in 7-0 victory at Tacoma

Eaton, who suffered a sprained left elbow injury midway
through spring training, has been progressing to make his return to the club.
The center fielder is 2-for-10 with a
double, a run scored and an RBI in two games with Triple-A Reno. Daniel Hudson,
Aaron Hill, and Willie Bloomquist are other notable Diamondbacks’ that are on
the diabled list.
He hit .259 with two home runs and five RBI in 22 games with
the D-backs in 2012. With the injury of Eaton, the Dbacks minor league depth
has been tested early throughout the beginning of the season. A.J Pollock has
been platooning with Gerardo Parra for the center field spot. The 25- year-old
center fielder has been highly regarded of in the organization. He has the
tools of the prototypical lead-off hitter, as well as a player who is “gritty”
on the field, which suits the style the Diamondbacks have approached this year.

The Diamondbacks reinstated shortstop Didi Gregorius from the seven-day disabled list on Saturday and optioned outfielder Alfredo Marte to Triple-A Reno.

SAN DIEGO -- J.J. Putz remains the Diamondbacks closer, but he may not be the only reliever placed in save situations in the near future.
The D-backs saw Putzs fastball velocity drop from 95 mph to 89 mph when he was used three times in four days recently, and manager Kirk Gibson said he will try to do a better job of managing Putzs workload. Putz either warmed up for or appeared...
SAN DIEGO -- Pitching in the thin air in Denver is difficult enough. Living there can compound the issue. Diamondbacks left-hander Matt Reynolds no longer has to make that adjustment, and it has worked out well.
Reynolds has not given up a run in 15 innings this season, the longest run in the major leagues. While it has mostly to do with his stuff and command, the relocation to...

With their offense beginning to show some life, the Diamondbacks should feel confident with Ian Kennedy on the mound in a ballpark where he's been dominant. Kennedy will try for a fourth consecutive win at Petco Park on Sunday when the D-backs look to take the series finale and win two of three from the Padres.
After Arizona pitchers allowed 16 runs and 24 hits in losses Thursday...
SAN DIEGO -- Ian Kennedy barreled through the Padres' lineup without his best stuff Sunday, so close to escaping trouble that it made the Diamondbacks' 5-1 loss that much more frustrating.
After going 17 straight batters without giving up a hit, Kennedy hung changeups for home runs to two consecutive batters in the sixth inning, and that was that.
Thats what sucks about...
SAN DIEGO -- For a change, the Diamondbacks were able to step back and take a breath Saturday. After playing 21 games decided by two runs or fewer and a half a dozen that went extra innings, they found the refreshing blowout they have lacked.
With early-season standouts Patrick Corbin and A.J. Pollock leading the way, the D-backs scored six runs in the second inning and put up a...
Last week, the Cincinnati Reds acquired utility player Mark Teahen from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for cash or a player to be named later. However, this trade was nixed over the weekend, as the Reds found an issue during Teahen's physical.
After acquiring Teahen, the Reds uncovered a shoulder issue that the veteran apparently hadn't reported to the D'backs...
SAN DIEGO -- When Heath Bell entered the game in the eighth inning Saturday night, San Diego fans let him know exactly what they thought of his five mostly remarkable seasons here.
Catcalls, combined with a smattering of appreciation.
Three 40-save years does not buy much any more.
Bell knew it was coming. He got the same thing last year, when he returned to Petco Park after signing...
