MLB Injury News:
D-backs second baseman Aaron Hill was removed from Friday night's 10-0 win over the Padres after two innings with right hamstring tightness.
Hill felt the hamstring stiffen up while scoring from second base in the first inning after he had doubled home a run. He notified the coaching staff but remained in the game.
An inning later, Hill hit his second RBI double of the night to make the score 4-0, and D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said he saw the veteran "dragging his leg a little bit." Once the Padres retired the side, Gibson told Hill he was coming out.
Eric Chavez came off the bench to man third base, while Martin Prado shifted from third base to second.
"I could've finished the game, but I just took it easy," Hill said. "Not worth it today."
Although neither Hill nor Gibson seemed concerned about the injury, the skipper said after the game that the 31-year-old would be out of the lineup Saturday, which did indeed happen.
"That's debatable," Hill originally said of being out Saturday, "I haven't got to argue my case yet." But obviously the coaches' word prevailed.
Gibson said he will most likely put him back in the lineup Sunday before the team has an off-day on Monday however.

Hill has been riddled with injuries terribly all season long. After participating in 156 games in 2012, he's been in a measly 37 thus far in 2013. He's hitting a respectible .280 but only a mind-blowing 5 homers after hitting 26 bombs last season. He also has only 19 RBI's compared to 85 a year prior.

Just as the starting rotation is almost back to being a strength of the Diamondbacks, they’ll get even more help with the returns of Brandon McCarthy and Trevor Cahill soon. McCarthy pitched in a rehab start for Triple-A Reno Friday night, lasting six innings and allowing two earned runs on six hits and a walk. He struck out three and threw 85 pitches, including 62 strikes.
Solid starting pitching and an improved offense have the Diamondbacks just a half-game off the NL West lead. They could take over that spot with some help and another victory over the division's worst team.

Athletes just want to play. They want to be on the stage they've known their entire life. They want to perform at the highest level possible. This is why so many athletes come back from injury early or play through injuries. This is why so many athletes ignore the warning signs. It's not an indictment on the athlete, but rather a problem that competition fuels....
Early Monday, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported that the Diamondbacks were “strong front runners” to land former Giants closer Brian Wilson, but that report was shot down later in the day by Arizona Sports 620‘s John Gambadoro. Last week it came out that the Diamondbacks were one of several teams on hand to watch Wilson throw.

Maybe, finally, this team has found it. It’s seemed several times this week that the Diamondbacks may be headed toward a breakthrough and it was obvious that something went right in a convincing 10-0 win over San Diego Friday night. They looked phenomenal on both sides of the ball with no individual performance stronger than Randall Delgado’s complete game shutout, the first of his career.
You know your offense has issues when your pitching allows only one run and you still manage to lose. That’s exactly what happen this afternoon at Chase Field.
