Improved health is Saunders' chief concern

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Diamondbacks starter Joe Saunders made his first start of the spring Tuesday at Salt River Fields, and though the results left something to be desired, he felt much better than this time a year ago.

D-Backs pitcher dazzles with his pitches, workouts

(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Sports Writer Trevor Bauer's jaw-dropping endeavors aren't limited to his ridiculous repertoire of 10 pitches or his freakish athletic ability. There's his dazzling pregame long toss foul pole to foul pole, his curious contortions while he stretches and the crow hops across the mound before he unleashes a 100 mph...

Giants 11, Diamondbacks 1

One of the main reasons Major League Baseball holds spring training in Arizona and Florida is because of the sunny weather. Very rarely are there rain storms in the Arizona desert this time of year, which makes for a perfectly-uninterrupted exhibition season. Almost.
