McCarthy was taken to an area hospital but is fine after being prescribed anti-seizure medication. McCarthy was told after his brain surgery last year that he could be prone to seizures in the future. Amanda “took control of the situation pretty quickly” McCarthy told the Arizona Republic. “She might have dressed it up a little bit, but I’m pretty sure she was a superhero there. I know she’s talked about how some of the employees there were pretty damn good. Some of the people eating there helped, too. If anybody reads it or hears about it, thank you to them for helping and making it go as smooth as possible.” McCarthy is currently rehabbing his shoulder from inflammation and is hopeful to rejoin the Diamondbacks soon. On the season McCarthy holds a 5.00 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP in 11 starts this season.

Goldschmidt's rapid rise has captured baseball's attention

It is near impossible to get Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt to discuss his meteoric rise among the ranks of baseball's power hitters. The 25-year-old is just not comfortable going there. "It's a very humbling game," Goldschmidt says, repeating a line that's become second nature. "I don't really want to draw attention, whether it's...

Rotation woes continue for Diamondbacks

Starters' struggles a worrying trend for D-backs

PHOENIX -- Pegged by most -- us included -- as a pitching powerhouse before the season began, the Diamondbacks have been everything but.
