Willie Bloomquist had what has become his signature Diamondbacks' at-bat Saturday. After taking a strike, he doubled down the right-field line. He stayed inside the ball and found an open landing place. Kelly Johnson once said he saw the same approach every time Bloomquist hit, and he sounded envious when he said it.
Healthy again after missing virtually all of the final two...
PHOENIX -- At FanFest last month, Diamondbacks left-hander Tyler Skaggs said he planned to treat every chance to pitch this spring, while competing for the final spot in the starting rotation, as if it were the seventh game of the World Series.

Lest Team USA be accused of not playing to win the World Baseball Classic, consider the gamesmanship involved in the Americans' latest roster decision.
When Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez withdrew from the tournament Friday because of a shoulder injury, USA needed to find another relief pitcher. They chose Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander David Hernandez.
On one level...
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Adam Eaton can get under your skin. Ask the Sacramento River Cats.
As part of adapting to the leadoff role at Triple-A Reno, Eaton chose to work on his bunting in a game last May 25. He beat out a bunt toward second base to lead off the game. He did the same thing in the third inning. And in the fifth. After he doubled in the seventh, the River Cats had had enough...
