Putz startled by audio clip during pitch

Your browser does not support iframes. An ill-timed audio clip threw off Arizona Diamondbacks reliever J.J.

Goldy again comes through for D-backs in needed win

PHOENIX -- Another Patrick Corbin gem wasted. Another blown save. Another missed opportunity to gain ground on the NL West-leading Dodgers. And all of it wiped away with one swing of Paul Goldschmidt's bat. In typical Goldschmidt fashion, the All-Star first baseman gave the D-backs a 5-4 win over the Mets on Friday, his latest heroics in an effort to keep his team in the NL...

Cody Ross Carted off Field After Dislocating Right Hip in First Inning Against Mets

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross had to be carted off the field Sunday night after dislocating his right hip.

Injury added to insult on rough day for D-backs

PHOENIX -- Losing a series behind a bullpen that has once again become a weakness while potentially falling even further out of first place is bad enough for one day. But the Diamondbacks' Sunday was much worse. Not only did the D-backs lose 9-5 to the Mets to drop the weekend series, they also lost key contributors Eric Chavez and Cody Ross to injuries. "Both those guys...

D-backs' Putz has 'pitch' rudely interrupted

Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz threw quite possibly the worst "pitch" in the history of baseball Saturday night against the Mets, and the fact that the ball went directly downward (before rolling about 15 feet) wasn't even the strangest part. As Putz started his motion to throw his first pitch to the Mets' Justin Turner with one out and nobody on, the Chase Field...

Knee and hipp problems force Eric Chavez to DL

The Arizona Diamondbacks were dealt a big blow on Sunday when third baseman Eric Chavez was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to stiff right hip and sore left knee.

Orioles-Diamondbacks Preview

Wade Miley has been among the best pitchers in baseball over the past six weeks. He's been just as impressive over the last two years during interleague play. Miley looks to continue those strong runs and help the Arizona Diamondbacks extend their interleague success at home against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night. Miley (9-8, 3.56 ERA) is 5-1 with a 1.54 ERA while limiting...
