Found March 24, 2013 on Fantasy Baseball Tools:
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton will miss 6-8 weeks of action with a sprained elbow. It is a tough break for those fantasy owners viewing Eaton as a nice sleeper candidate in the middle of drafts and he had been steadily climbing in mock drafts the last few weeks. The winner in the Diamondbacks outfield is Gerrardo Parra who figures to see 125-150 more at bats than what was originally projected for him. It also creates temporary value for A.J. Pollock who could also be starting in the outfield come opening day if Cody Ross has not yet recovered from his calf injury. The injury pushes Eaton down roughly 20 spots in my fantasy baseball outfield rankings in annual draft leagues after knocking him down to 400 at bats. For keeper leagues, the injury has no impact on his long-term value. St. Louis Cardinals closer Jason Motte could be headed for the disabled list to start the season with a strained elbow. There is no timetable for his return until the team is able to conduct so...

AZ pitcher not a fan of his baseball card

Over the weekend, injured D'Backs starter Daniel Hudson sent out a tweet voicing his displeasure over the photo Topps chose to use for his baseball card. 

Diamondbacks’ Aaron Hill, hit or miss

Aaron Hill’s lack of strikeouts would indicate he’s a consistent hitter, but he’s not. Hitting .205 in 2010 and .246 in 2011, his season’s average was aided by a torrid finish with the Arizona Diamondbacks as he was hitting .225 with the Blue Jays. Since being traded to the Diamondbacks, Hill has been one of baseball’s best offensive second basemen. Just look at the numbers.... Read more

Hudson not happy with baseball card

Isn't every Little Leaguer's dream to make it to the Majors and end up on a baseball card some day? Imagine how Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson must have felt when he saw an unflattering picture of him on his 2013 Topps baseball card. The 26-year-old starting pitcher, about to begin his fifth season in the majors and third with the D-backs, was going through...

D-backs notes: Ross optimistic but realistic

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- It has looked more and more likely for the last week or so that Diamondbacks outfielder Cody Ross will not be ready in time for Opening Day as he rehabs a strained soleus muscle in his left calf. Ross said Sunday, however, that he is still targeting a return on Opening Day, although he also is being cautious not to make the injury into a bigger issue. "...

D-backs have questions, options in outfield

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The Diamondbacks' lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals featured a few peculiarities, but they might end up being short-term regularities due to pair of injuries that have shaken up the team's outfield situation. With Cody Ross still rehabbing a leg injury and Adam Eaton now sidelined between six and eight weeks with a sprained left ulnar collateral...

Daniel Hudson unhappy with his Topps baseball card

Every young boy or girl who wants to play sports for a living dreams of someday being featured on a playing card. Usually kids envision themselves on the front of a card jacking a home run or catching a touchdown pass. It didn’t exactly work out that way for Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson. Hudson is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery after he blew out his elbow last...

Corbin impresses again in D-backs' win

GOODYEAR, Arizona (AP) -- Patrick Corbin continued to state his case for a spot in the Diamondbacks' starting rotation Friday in a 7-5 win over the Indians. Corbin, competing for the fifth starting spot with Randall Delgado, allowed two runs and three hits in five innings. He lost his command in the third inning, walking three and allowing a two-run single to Michael Brantley...

D-backs CF Eaton possibly out 2 months

Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Eaton will be out for up to two months with a left elbow sprain. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said on Friday that Eaton had an MRI that revealed a small tear in the fibers around the ulnar collateral ligament. Eaton had been bothered by a sore elbow for a couple of weeks and the Diamondbacks had recently given him a couple days off...

Happy ending for Hudson, Topps in card flap

Daniel Hudson's seemingly harmless tweet about his baseball card picture that blew up across the internet Monday really was, well, harmless. The Diamondbacks right-hander, who is expected to miss much of the season while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery after tearing a ligament in his arm last June, took to Twitter on Sunday after he opened some fan mail that included a new...

Diamondbacks 7, Indians 5

Mark Teahan went 3 for 3 with three runs scored and the Arizona Diamondbacks earned a 7-5 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Friday. Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin allowed two runs and three hits in five innings. He lost his command in the third inning, walking three and allowing a two-run single to Michael Brantley, but shut down the Indians on one hit in his last two innings...
