With the Trade Deadline inching closer, speculation has already began on who the Diamondbacks could acquire to help out their roster.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The Brewers and Diamondbacks are currently in talks regarding starter Yovani Gallardo and relief pitchers John Axford, Francisco Rodriguez and Jim Henderson, sources tell Jon Morosi of Fox Sports.
As of tonight, no deal appears imminent, Morosi says, but a deal between the two teams is very possible. While the Brewers have some good pieces in their bullpen, the Diamondbacks have...
MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun swung in the cage Friday for the first time since landing on the disabled list with an inflamed nerve in his right hand.
Braun will take batting practice on the field prior to Saturday's game against New York, will hit again in the cage Sunday and then will hit on the field again Monday.
While the Brewers are still a few...
Besides a rough stretch in May, Kyle Lohse has been exactly what the Milwaukee Brewers expected when they signed him a week before the season started.
Two days after having a start cut short due to a rain delay, Lohse was at his best Wednesday evening in Washington. A solo home run was the only blemish on his line, as Lohse worked eight strong innings in Milwaukee's 4-1 win...

Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero was caught on camera as he appeared to be licking some bats on the dugout steps during Monday night's game at Citi Field against the New York Mets.
Montero put his mouth to the barrel of two bats to select which one he was going to use for his seventh inning at-bat, and after this video went...
PHOENIX -- Tyler Skaggs gave the Diamondbacks exactly what they needed Friday night.
With the D-backs' bullpen running on fumes and the starting rotation having scuffled for the better part of a month, Skaggs stepped into the breach with the best outing of his young career in a 5-0 victory over the Rockies.
On the day he was recalled from Class AAA Reno, the young left-hander...
To make room for Friday night’s starter Tyler Skaggs and to bring up some bullpen relief in Charles Brewer, Chaz Roe and Tony Campana were sent down to Triple-A Reno.
Arizona infielder Willie Bloomquist says he has two broken bones in his left hand and has been told to expect to be sidelined for six to eight weeks.
Bloomquist was injured when he was hit by a pitch against at Washington on June 26 and got the results of a CT scan Friday. He says it's the same injury that sidelined teammate Aaron Hill for much of this season, except it'...
PHOENIX -- It took just four days for Diamondbacks fans to donate more than 100,000 to victims of the Yarnell fire -- a figure matched by the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation -- so the D-backs charitable arm announced Friday that it would match another 100,000 for contributions made through dbacks.com19.
The generosity of our fans over the past four days has been truly inspirational...
Twins' manager Ron Roenicke provided updates on starters Marco Estrada and Alfredo Figardo, who are both on the disabled list and in Arizona rehabbing.
Estrada, who's trying to come back from a strained left hamstring, still hasn't progressed to the point where he's able to begin pitching in games.
"He still feels it a little bit, so we can't have him...
Arizona Diamondbacks starter Tyler Skaggs was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Friday to replace an injured Trevor Cahill, who was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday with a right hip contusion, and turned in a masterful outing against the Colorado Rockies at Chase Field.
Skaggs worked eight scoreless innings, surrendering just three hits (all singles) and striking out five while walking...
MILWAUKEE -- There wasn't one person to blame for the sloppiness of the Milwaukee Brewers' 12-5 loss to the New York Mets on Friday night at Miller Park.
The defense was poor, mistakes were made on the bases, outs were made at the plate, and the pitching left a lot to be desired.
It would be unfair to point the finger to rookie right-hander Johnny Hellweg for Friday'...
Kyle Lohse tossed eight sharp innings on short rest and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Washington Nationals 4-1 on Wednesday, shutting down Bryce Harper and Co. for the second night in a row.
Lohse (4-6) allowed one run and four hits, and had a season-high seven strikeouts against the eager-swinging Nationals, who barely avoided back-to-back shutouts and fell back to .500. Harper...
Up until the past week and a half, the road had been fairly kind to the Diamondbacks. They were 20-18 away from Chase Field and had won some big games in opponents' parks.
But then came a brutal 10-game East Coast swing that probably has the D-backs clamoring for the comforts of home, especially after playing 14 total extra innings and sitting through more than four hours of...

Bullpens are settling in as we near the All-Star break. We’ll run through some of the major issues this week and some quick notes at the end as usual. I’ll try to put a trade preview piece together for next week’s column unless we see some major movement.
J.J. Putz was back and then he wasn’t. He was pulled from his role as closer to build arm strength...
