D-backs activate Putz from DL; Spruill optioned

The Diamondbacks activated closer J.J. Putz from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, a move that was expected with Putz having made several rehab appearances without a setback, and optioned pitcher Zeke Spruill to Triple-A Reno to clear a roster spot. Putz had been on the disabled list since leaving a May 7 game against the Dodgers with a right elbow strain. It was initially believed...

Trevor Cahill will turn it around

Jumping on the Diamondbacks rotation, and Trevor Cahill in particular, to blame for the team’s recent struggles is the popular thing to do right now. And truth be told, it’s perfectly acceptable. There’s a reason a starter hasn’t won in over three weeks. There’s a reason the bullpen is, more often than not, run into the ground by overuse. I’m here to tell you Cahill...

Rotation takes another hit as Cahill goes on DL

One day after the worst statistical month of his career came to an end, Diamondbacks starting pitcher Trevor Cahill was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hip contusion. The injury is the same one that knocked him out of a June 19 game against the Marlins after one inning. Cahill took a line drive off his hip at the end of the first inning and warmed up for the second...

Putz reinstated, Spruill optioned to AAA

The Diamondbacks have found an answer for fans upset with Heath Bell‘s poor performance as closer, and it comes in the form of a healthy J.J. Putz. Putz was taken off the disabled list officially Saturday morning, making him available for the day game in Atlanta.

JJ Putz activated from DL by Diamondbacks

Closer J.J. Putz has been activated from the 15-day disabled list by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Sidelined since May 7 by a strained right elbow, Putz pitched four games during an injury rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Reno.

With Omogrosso Out, Simon Castro Gets His 1st Shot

During spring training, one of the most attractive prospects on the White Sox was starter Simon Castro. And now, after another failed stint in the bullpen from Brian Omogrosso, Castro is getting his first chance to make an impression with the MLB team. Last season, Omogrosso pitched in 17 games for the Sox and had a very good 2.57 ERA. And after he dominated this past...

Diamondbacks place Trevor Cahill on DL with hip contusion

June was an awful month for Arizona Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill, and July doesn't look any better. Cahill was placed on the 15-day DL with a hip contusion, with the news tweeted by the Diamondbacks' official feed on Monday afternoon. OFFICIAL: @Dbacks select RHP Chaz Roe from Triple-A Reno, place RHP Trevor Cahill on 15-day disabled list w/ right hip contusion...

Mets, Diamondbacks honor 19 fallen firefighters at Citi Field

During Monday night's Diamondbacks-Mets game at Citi Field, the two clubs had a jersey hanging in their respective dugouts with the name of Yarnell and the number 19 on the back. This was to honor the 19 members of the Yarnell, Ariz. fire department who died while fighting a wildfire Sunday night. The jerseys were shown on the stadium's video board during a moment of silence...

Indians aim for sweep in Chicago

It's been over 18 years since the Cleveland Indians swept a four-game series from the Chicago White Sox. The Indians may have to get the best of Chris Sale on Sunday to end that drought, but that wasn't a problem in their last matchup with Chicago's ace. Since losing a season-high eight straight, the Indians (43-38) have gone in the opposite direction by winning 13 of...

MLB Trade Rumors: Alex Rios and Matt Garza Are on the Giants Radar

Following a disappointing stretch that has seen the Giants below .500, and go just 2-8 in their most recent ten-game stretch, Brian Sabean is reportedly already looking to the trade market to assess what players he may be able to acquire to help right the ship in San Francisco as they try to defend their 2012 World Series Championship. The Giants are arguably in need of a pitcher...

Diamondbacks-Mets Preview

Wade Miley is the last starter to win a game for the Arizona Diamondbacks, but that came nearly four weeks ago. The offense isn't providing much help. Miley may need to overcome the Diamondbacks' sluggish bats if he's going to help them win for just the second time in 10 tries on the road Monday night against the New York Mets. Miley (4-7, 4.55 ERA) allowed three runs...

Big inning dooms Diamondbacks

Up and down, up and down. The season continues to roll on. Saturday’s game was a bit of a microcosm of the Diamondbacks season in many respects. Poor starting pitching, some clutch hitting, a bullpen letdown. All that was missing was a furious comeback as the Diamondbacks fell hard to Atlanta, 11-5. 

Tribe rallies to beat White Sox 4-3

CHICAGO -- Cleveland first baseman Nick Swisher drove in the tie-breaking run for the second straight game as the Indians beat the Chicago White Sox for the third time in 24 hours, 4-3 Saturday afternoon.
