MLB Injury News:
The Arizona Diamondbacks were hoping infielder Willie Bloomquist's hand injury wouldn’t require a stint on the disabled list.
However, the veteran’s ailment wasn’t healing as expected, and the team
ultimately decided to shelve him for at least 15 days.
Bloomquist suffered the injury when he was hit on the hand
by a pitch last Wednesday. He’s been unavailable since, taking up a spot on
Arizona’s bench. Since Bloomquist wasn’t recovery as hoped but instead taking a
spot on the D’backs’ bench, manager Kirk Gibson told Steve Gilbert of MLB.com
that the DL was deemed necessary.
"Willie's just not progressing, and we've been playing
short so we made the decision that we would go the other way with him," Gibson
In a limited role with the Diamondbacks, Bloomquist has hit
.292/.342/.347 with four doubles over 79 plate appearances. Arizona replaced
him on their roster by recalling Tony Campana from Triple-A.

The Diamondbacks are amid their only series at Citi Field in New York this season, but at least two D-backs could be making a return trip there in two weeks.

PHOENIX -- It took just four days for Diamondbacks fans to donate more than 100,000 to victims of the Yarnell fire -- a figure matched by the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation -- so the D-backs charitable arm announced Friday that it would match another 100,000 for contributions made through dbacks.com19.

Like a little tongue action.
Video: Of course the Mets allowed this
Up until the past week and a half, the road had been fairly kind to the Diamondbacks. They were 20-18 away from Chase Field and had won some big games in opponents' parks.
But then came a brutal 10-game East Coast swing that probably has the D-backs clamoring for the comforts of home, especially after playing 14 total extra innings and sitting through more than four hours of...
