DIAMONDBACKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Arizona Diamondbacks: time to part with Parra

The Arizona Diamondbacks have a lot of problems. They make disastrous trades involving elite players who aren’t “gritty” enough. They discourage Brandon McCarthy from throwing his cutter and trade him. McCarthy dominates in his first three starts with his new team using his cutter liberally. But not all of the Diamondback’s problems are bad ones. They have a logjam in the...

Massive fight at Triple-A Reno leads to 10 ejections

It turns out the Dodgers and Diamondbacks don’t even get along at the Triple-A level. A massive brawl broke out early in Saturday night’s game between the Albuquerque Isotopes and Reno Aces. After nearly being hit with a pitch, Erisbel Arruebarrena was eventually called out on strikes. He apparently shoved Reno catcher Blake Lalli after the AB, and the dugouts poured onto the...

We've already seen a few trades happen in recent weeks, but the next six or seven days will likely be even more crazy.

D-Backs more interested in trading Hill than Prado

The Diamondbacks are looking to trade Aaron Hill but are barely listening on Martin Prado, according to league sources. Hill has slipped from two years ago, when he had a career year, and is batting .251 with eight homers and 49 RBI. Prado's numbers are comparable (four homers, 37 RBI, .274), but Arizona views him as a key asset because of his leadership abilities and versatility...

Ziegler unfazed by trade talk, line drive to ribs

PHOENIX -- Brad Ziegler had good cause to be distracted Wednesday. His name has been mentioned in trade talks this week, although there seems little chance he is going anywhere. And after being struck in the rib cage by a line drive Tuesday, he was unable to pitch in the final game of the Detroit series. He was still in some pain, but at least he could chuckle about it. He knows...

Tony La Russa needs to give Diamondbacks a complete overhaul

With a great poker face, Tony La Russa has been evaluating the Diamondbacks for two months. We don't know many details, except he can barely stand to look at his manager. "It would give me such great joy to give him that pink slip," La Russa said. La Russa was kidding, of course, referencing the infamous home run Kirk Gibson hit off La Russa's club in the 1988...

Tigers look to keep Diamondbacks from winning third straight home series Wednesday

While in the midst of a rough season overall, the Arizona Diamondbacks continue to be rewarded for their recent resiliency. Coming off another comeback victory, the Diamondbacks can win their third straight home series Wednesday against the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers.

Your browser does not support iframes.   Everyone knows that Star Wars Day is the greatest ballpark promotion ever. Diamondbacks TV broadcasters Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly agree.

WATCH: D-Backs fan runs onto field, gets away from security

One particular Arizona Diamondbacks fan was so excited for the second half of the season to begin that he ran onto Chase Field on Friday night. During the ninth inning of the Cubs-Diamondbacks game, this fan wanted a selfie with Gerardo Parra so he took to the outfield—cell phone in hand. He didn’t get the selfie he was seeking, but did meet the venue’s security crew. As they...
