MLB Injury News:

Cahill left the game in the second inning after being hit by a Marcell Ozuna line drive in the first. The Diamondbacks tweeted that Cahill plans to make his next start.

Arizona allowed the right-hander to start the second inning before pulling him after he threw a few pitches to Derek Dietrich. Steve Gilbert of MLB.com quoted Cahill as saying he believed could have remained in the game but the Diamondbacks wanted to be careful.
"I thought I could get through it," Cahill said, "and they just didn't want to risk anything. It was sore, my stride was a lot shorter, but I felt like I could have made an adjustment and pitched through it."
Josh Collmenter rescued the D-Backs by pitching six innings of scoreless relief. With Ian Kennedy suspended and Brandon McCarthy on the DL, Arizona will hope that Cahill is able to make that next start as he claims, but if not, it seems as though Collmenter is a capable replacement. The 27-year-old has alternated between starting and relief over the last 3 seasons: he is 13-12 as a starter in his career with a 4.03 ERA. In 2011, his rookie season, he posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.07 WHIP, garnering a few NL Rookie of the Year votes as a result.

PHOENIX -- Diamondbacks starting pitcher Trevor Cahill left in the second inning of Wednesday's game against the Marlins after being hit by a line drive the previous inning.
In the first inning, Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna lined a ball off what appeared to be Cahill's right hip. It deflected to Martin Prado, who threw to first for the final out of the inning. Cahill...
It seems like there’s new injury news every time you turn around these days, probably because of how many guys currently occupy the Diamondbacks’ disabled list. Two of the bigger fish are due back soon, so let’s take a look.
PHOENIX -- Martin Prado is at ease, at home, in the Diamondbacks' clubhouse. He greets his teammates with a handshake and a hug every day. On Wednesday morning, he traded hand slaps with Cody Ross' young son. Miguel Montero made it a point to show Prado the wrist decal that his son Angel had applied that morning, a tradeoff for taking his medicine.
Prado rolled his shoulders...
PHOENIX -- Josh Collmenter reached into his locker stall and pulled out the black T-shirt with red lettering that he has designed and produced: Paul Goldschmidt, America's First Baseman.The shirt could find its way into mass production if Goldschmidt continues his.America's first baseman almost hit one to the moon Tuesday, drilling a home run off the batter's eye at Chase...
Eric Chavez was having an outstanding season for the Arizona Diamondbacks before an oblique injury forced him to the DL at the end of May, but MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports that it should not be too much longer before we see Chavez back on a major league field. The 35-year-old has been hitting, throwing and running and seems to be ahead of schedule for a return, with the...
In spite of a very scary moment several days back, it appears that Brandon McCarthy's trek back to toeing the rubber for the Arizona Diamondbacks is back on the straight and narrow.
Earlier in the month, the lanky righthander suffered a seizure while eating dinner with his wife, who acted quickly after McCarthy fell over in his seat:
That's the story I've been...
PHOENIX -- It might just be coincidence, but the timing of Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross fixing a persistent vision problem and hitting a game-winning home run was just uncanny.
Ross hit a pinch-hit three-run home run in the eighth inning of the D-backs 3-1 win over the Marlins on Wednesday, a day after he made a trip to his eye doctor to get a long-running issue with his contact...
A pair of Arizona Diamondbacks fans, presumably a lovely couple, were spotted at a game recently donning custom jerseys in tribute to Jay-Z's "99 Problems" hit song.As you can see, the guy in this photo is wearing the No. 99 with "Problems" written in the name section. Meanwhile, the lady is sporting the No. 1 with the message "I Aint" on her back...
With many teams across baseball having already signed their first round pick, the Arizona Diamondbacks followed suit with inking their first round selection Braden Shipley on Tuesday afternoon.
PHOENIX -- First-round draft pick Braden Shipley has signed a 2.25 million contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound right-hander, who played collegiately at Nevada, was the 15th selection overall. He was projected to go much higher.
Shipley's fastball regularly is in the mid-90s and has hit as high as 97 to 98 mph.
The 21-year-old converted shortstop...

Everyone has fallen short of identifying the true cause of all the bench clearing brawls and suspensions: namely the a priori assumption on the part of almost everyone who covers this sport that pitching high and tight is “just part of the game”—like missed signs and blown calls. Human nature being what it is, the problem is that giving pitchers that much latitude engenders...

PHOENIX -- Cody Ross hit a three-run, pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning to spoil an outstanding outing by Miami's young Jose Fernandez, and the Arizona Diamondbacks held off the Marlins 3-1 Wednesday.
Fernandez (4-4) retired 14 in a row before walking two of the three batters he faced in the eighth. He was relieved by left-hander Mike Dunn...
