Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy underwent an MRI on Tuesday. The MRI revealed no structural damage to McCarthy’s shoulder.
The 29-year-old, McCarthy has shoulder inflammation.
There is no clear timetable for the return of McCarthy and the injury has been an ongoing one thoughout his major league career. The Diamondbacks are not expected to rush him back to the majors...
CHICAGO -- As much of a blow as it was for the D-backs to lose third baseman Eric Chavez to an oblique strain, the injury created an opportunity for catcher Miguel Montero.
Montero, still working out of a season-long slump, slid into Chavez's cleanup spot in the batting order Friday, and the D-backs are hoping the move can help jumpstart Montero's season.
Let the honors begin for Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin.
Corbin earned National League Pitcher of the Month honors Monday after going 5-0 with a 1.53 ERA in May, beating out the likes of Pirates closer Jason Grilli and Phillies starter Cliff Lee.

If the Cardinals and Diamondbacks remain atop their respective divisions, solid pitching likely will be a major reason. Each sends a highly regarded young hurler to the mound Tuesday night, with Michael Wacha looking to guide St. Louis to an eighth victory in 10 tries in a matchup with Tyler Skaggs and visiting Arizona.
The Cardinals (38-19) have the best record in the major leagues...
CHICAGO -- Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson praised Cubs starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija's performance after Saturday's game and again Sunday morning, but he also had strong words for the right-hander after hearing of a couple on-field snipes.

The best pitcher in the National League so far this year is a second-year starter taking the league by storm. And it’s not the one who was just on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

Lynn is unbeaten in his last eight regular-season home outings heading into Monday night's opener of a four-game set for the St. Louis Cardinals in this matchup of division leaders.
