D-backs catcher Miguel Montero loses bat in stands, hits fan in leg (Video)

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero's bat flew into the stands and hit a female fan in the leg during his fourth inning at-bat in Friday night's MLB game at Chase Field against the Washington Nationals. Montero swung at a 1-0 pitch and it went flying about six rows back in the stands behind the D-backs dugout. The female fan grabbed the bat after it bounced...

D-backs done in by uncharacteristic mistakes

PHOENIX -- Miguel Montero summed up Saturday succinctly. It was a bad beat, he said. The Diamondbacks played a game quite unlike themselves at Chase Field on Saturday, a 6-5 loss to the NL East-leading Nationals in which they could not hold a 4-1 lead behind their best pitcher and top NL Rookie of the Year candidate Wade Miley. The D-backs self-destructed in the fifth inning,...

D-backs call up Elmore, put Bloomquist on DL

PHOENIX -- Jake Elmores promotion Saturday proves perseverance pays. Elmore was purchased from Class AAA Reno when the Diamondbacks placed Willie Bloomquist on the disabled list with a strained lower back, culminating a climb that began when he signed as a 34th-round draft choice in 2008 after a frustrating season at ASU. I think I was floating above my body for a while, said Elmore...

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Jason Kubel homered twice, Joe Saunders pitched seven effective innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-3 on Thursday. Both of Kubel's home runs immediately followed hits by Aaron Hill. Wil Nieves also hit a two-run homer in his Diamondbacks debut. Saunders (6-8) retired 14 consecutive batters in the middle innings. He allowed two...

Red Sox sign OF Podsednik after trading him

He was released by Arizona after declining an assignment to Triple-A Reno. Podsednik, who was batting ninth and playing left field Friday...

Red Sox reacquire OF Podsednik

Sox to send Kalish down to make room for Podsednik

News came out yesterday that the Sox re-signed Scott Podsednik -- sent to Arizona in the Craig Breslow deal, but immediately released -- for the remainder of the season. The perplexing move was seemingly injury insurance, but now Dan Roche says the Sox are assigning Podsednik to the big club and sending down Ryan Kalish. I'm inclined to say this move is insane, but the motivation...

Nationals 6, Diamondbacks 5

Ryan Zimmerman singled in two of Washington's five runs in the fifth inning, and the Nationals rallied to beat the sloppy Arizona Diamondbacks 6-5 on Saturday night, stretching their season-best winning streak to eight games. Jason Werth and Michael Morse each had an RBI double in Washington's big inning, which was aided by two Arizona errors and a wild pitch from Diamondbacks...

Nats Head To Arizona As They Continue Their Road Trip Out West

In the past, the Nationals and the Diamondbacks have been pretty evenly matched, splitting their wins in contests between the two teams just about...

OPS Fantasy Leagues: Cry Me A River

Justin Upton – This year his season has been tearing up my heart. He’s posting the lowest OPS of his career since he was a rookie in 2007. Since that time, he’s oscillated between great years in 2009 (.899 OPS) and 2011 (.898 OPS) and merely good years in 2008 (.816 OPS) and 2010 (.799 OPS). Currently, he’s producing a .756 OPS, but there are many signs pointing to a potential...
