Fox Sports Arizona:
The Diamondbacks placed starter Brandon McCarthy on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with what the team referred to as inflammation of the right-hander's throwing shoulder. The move was made retroactive to Friday, the day after McCarthy allowed six runs on nine hits in just 2 23 innings, his shortest outing of the season.
With McCarthy unavailable, the D-backs called up right-hander Randall Delgado, one of the primary pieces received from the Braves in the Justin Upton trade. Delgado, 23, has gone 1-1 with a 2.16 ERA in his last three starts at Triple-A Reno. In 11 starts overall this season, he is 1-4 with a 6.84 ERA.
Delgado has not yet appeared for the Diamondbacks, but with Atlanta last season, he started 24 games and had a 3.95 ERA while finishing 5-10.
McCarthy is 2-4 with a 5.00 ERA in 11 starts overall this season.

McCarthy is 2-4 with a 5.00 ERA in 11 starts this season. In 3 starts from May 12-24, he went 2-0 with a 0.38 ERA including a career-high 18-inning scoreless streak from May 7-24.

Brandon McCarthy had just started to find his stride in the Arizona Diamondbacks‘ rotation, but instead was placed on the DL on Sunday with right shoulder inflammation. The right hander had strung together three consecutive starts with a 0.38 ERA, including two wins and an 18 inning scoreless streak.That run ended during his last start, when he lasted just 2.2 innings in Texas...
While the Diamondbacks offense is rolling, they’re getting good news on the injury progress of several players, including Aaron Hill and J.J. Putz.
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.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed third baseman Eric Chavez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right oblique, the team has announced.

CHICAGO -- It was a rough May for Diamondbacks starting pitcher Wade Miley. And that's probably putting it nicely.
The left-hander lost his fourth straight start and fifth of May on Friday, a 7-2 defeat against the Cubs, and despite a strong finish, the outing was enough for manager Kirk Gibson to put Miley on notice.
"I'm not going to let him go out and keep doing...
Willie Bloomquist, after missing all of the 2013 season so far, has been activated from the DL after making four rehab starts for Triple-A Reno. Bloomquist will be a utility man for the D-Backs. Last year, in 338 plate appearances, Bloomquist posted a .302/.325/.398 split with 23 RBI and 7 SB. That made out for his best season to date, but his .362 BABIP suggests this was a mirage...
CHICAGO -- As they seem to fairly often, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson's pregame words resonated even more once Sunday's game had been completed. This time, it was Gibson talking about starting pitcher Patrick Corbin's hot start and what's ahead for the left-hander.
"He gets it, he knows how hard this is," Gibson said in the visiting manager's office...
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.
Samardzija exchanged words with D-backs pitcher Ian Kennedy and third base coach Matt Williams at different times in Arizona'...
It’s not often the Diamondbacks score 12 runs (actually never, so far in 2013) but Arizona did just that in a 12-4 victory over the Cubs Saturday night. Paul Goldschmidt led the charge, hitting an absolute bomb for his first career regular season grand slam.
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.
Mets sensation Matt Harvey is commanding all the attention, but it’s Diamondbacks lefty Patrick Corbin who is stealthily putting together a season every bit as good — in fact, better.
Even after one...
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Lance Lynn has been quite a different pitcher since turning in his shortest outing of the year against the Arizona Diamondbacks in his first 2013 start.
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.

The Arizona Diamondbacks will close out a solid month of May by heading to the Windy City to face the Cubs.
It’s been a few days since I posted. But it’s also been a few days since the Rangers played. After Monday’s doubleheader, Tuesday was an off-day, and then Wednesday’s game got rained out. The downtime seemed to be good for the players as they burst out for nine runs on 15 hits against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Most of the Rangers’ runs were scored on Brandon McCarthy...
