Found July 06, 2013 on One is the Loneliest Number:

Tyler Skaggs came up this time with a little more riding on his start. Trade rumors have swirled, the bullpen has been overworked, and the Diamondbacks went over three weeks without a starter win before Randall Delgado’s performance in New York.

Skaggs gives D-backs just what they need

PHOENIX -- Tyler Skaggs gave the Diamondbacks exactly what they needed Friday night. With the D-backs' bullpen running on fumes and the starting rotation having scuffled for the better part of a month, Skaggs stepped into the breach with the best outing of his young career in a 5-0 victory over the Rockies. On the day he was recalled from Class AAA Reno, the young left-hander...
MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH

Dickerson loses popup, ball lands 100 feet away

Your browser does not support iframes. It happens on rare occasions that major league outfielders lose track of balls in the air, whether due to the sun, the lights, or other distractions. However, the popup that Colorado Rockies center fielder Corey Dickerson lost track of Wednesday night landed so far away from him that you have to wonder what he was looking at. It happened...

Colorado Rockies won't win division because of undisciplined play

Tyler Colvin is making fans miss Eric Young, Jr.With a chance to make a statement to the leaders of a division that is very winnable, the Colorado Rockies took advantage and made that statement loud and clear.The statement, however, wasn't what Rockies fans were hoping it would be. The Rockies made it clear on Friday night that they aren't very good, and they have no intention...

Bloomquist's hand injury eerily similar to Hill's

PHOENIX -- Willie Bloomquist has a picture of the two small bone fractures on the top of his left hand saved in his phone, a reminder of what he has to overcome. This time. Bloomquist's second injury of the season could keep him out another six to eight weeks, and the D-backs were stunned at the similarity of his fractures to those suffered by Aaron Hill earlier this season...

D-backs' Miley on a roll since rediscovering form

PHOENIX -- Wade Miley's three-run double in the second inning of the Diamondbacks' 11-1 win over the Rockies on Saturday thrilled the Chase Field crowd more than anything else during the left-hander's night, but the D-backs are almost certainly more excited about the roll he's been on the past month. After a dreadful May seemed to land him in manager Kirk Gibson...

Roe and Campana sent down for Skaggs and Brewer

To make room for Friday night’s starter Tyler Skaggs and to bring up some bullpen relief in Charles Brewer, Chaz Roe and Tony Campana were sent down to Triple-A Reno.

Bloomquist could be out 2 months with broken hand

Arizona infielder Willie Bloomquist says he has two broken bones in his left hand and has been told to expect to be sidelined for six to eight weeks. Bloomquist was injured when he was hit by a pitch against at Washington on June 26 and got the results of a CT scan Friday.

After initial negative x-rays, a CT scan has revealed that Diamondbacks' veteran shortstop Willie Bloomquist has two broken bones in his left hand. The 35-year-old has been on the disabled list since June 28th after being hit by a pitch on June 26th. Tyler Emerick of MLB.com reports that Dr. Don Sheridan found the broken bones in Bloomquist's hand Friday after Arizona...

D-backs foundation pledges another 100K to fire victims

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. The generosity of our fans over the past four days has been truly inspirational...

Troy Tulowitzki not ruling out return to Rockies before All-Star break

The fans certainly want Troy Tulowitzki to play in the All-Star game: he has over four million votes and will be the first-choice shortstop from the National League. That seemed like it would be impossible at the end of June, when the Colorado Rockies infielder still couldn't swing a bat because of his broken rib, but according to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post, Tulowitzki...

Rockies' Carlos Gonzalez day-to-day with back strain, thinks he will play Friday

With Troy Tulowitzki already on the DL, the Colorado Rockies can ill-afford an injury to Carlos Gonzalez. The Rockies' star outfielder left Thursday night's game with a back problem but the Denver Post's Patrick Saunders tweeted that Gonzalez was just day-to-day and expected to play in Friday's game. #Rockies Weiss confirms @CarGoMedia5 has strained upper back...

Putting Michael Cuddyer’s Hit Streak Into Perspective

Michael Cuddyer just finished going streaking. His 27-game streak, which lasted from May 28th to June 30th, was the longest since Dan Uggla’s 33-gamer in 2011. While he didn’t reach the 30-game benchmark that many sites use, 27 games is nothing to shake a stick at — Cuddyer’s streak was just the 135th of 25 or more games since 1916 that happened during the same season (there...

After trying road trip, D-backs glad to be home for a spell

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...

Bullpens are settling in as we near the All-Star break. We’ll run through some of the major issues this week and some quick notes at the end as usual. I’ll try to put a trade preview piece together for next week’s column unless we see some major movement. Arizona Diamondbacks J.J. Putz was back and then he wasn’t. He was pulled from his role as closer to build arm strength...
