Phil Gosselin plays first game since being acquired by D-backs

Two days after Phil Gosselin was placed on the disabled list in May, he was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks. Three months later, he has finally taken the field for his new team. The 26-year-old infielder, who was acquired by the D-backs on May 20 while he was on the DL after having surgery to repair his fractured left thumb, took the field for Arizona on Monday, playing in his...

Ziegler injures himself in second-consecutive relief collapse

Brad Ziegler has been a solid back-end reliever for the Arizona Diamondbacks all season, but his past two outings have been quite a regression for the veteran reliever. A day after giving up three earned runs in the top of the 11th inning of the D-backs' 7-4 loss to the Oakland A's on Sunday, Ziegler was shellacked by the Colorado Rockies for four runs in the bottom of the ninth...

Ray's good start wasted by Rockies' 9th-inning rally

DENVER -- Robbie Ray did enough to earn his first win in nearly two months. A late rally by the Colorado Rockies spoiled the celebration for the Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander. Pinch-hitter Ben Paulsen hit a two-out, two-run single and the Rockies rallied for four runs in the bottom of the ninth for a 5-4 victory Monday night. A.J. Pollock homered and Chris Owings had three hits...

Paul Goldschmidt smashed his bat against the bat rack in the Arizona Diamondbacks dugout out of frustration after he struck out looking in the eighth inning of Saturday night's game against Oakland. Goldschmidt swung at a pitch out of the strike zone earlier in the at-bat, so going down looking on strike three was tough for him to take.Goldschmidt had a tough night as he went 0...

Oakland Athletics-Arizona Diamondbacks Series Preview

Sonny Gray This weekend, the disappointing Oakland Athletics (55-73) continue their week-long road trip as they head to Phoenix to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks (62-65). The A’s started off their road trip by losing 2 out of 3 in Seattle to continue their season-long woes. Their season has been especially dreadful on the road, with a record of 25-37.

Goldschmidt feels 'back on track' from slump after mechanical tweaks

Paul Goldschmidt is in the midst of an MVP-caliber season for the Arizona Diamondbacks, but he recently hit a snag at the plate, a lull that he hopes to have overcome by making a few mechanical alterations. While Goldschmidt continues to be one of the best hitters in all of baseball, he has recently encountered a hurdle in the batter's box. Although he still maintains an astronomical...

Diamondbacks reliever tabs Slider the Hamster as team mascot (vid)

The Arizona Diamondbacks already boast a praying mantis as an unofficial team mascot, but if it were up to reliever Josh Collmenter, his hamster — who amusingly goes by the name Slider — also is worthy of consideration. Collmenter brought Slider along on Tuesday to the ballpark and video was posted by reporter Zach Buchanan — who filed a report on the hamster...

JABO: The Diamondbacks’ Hidden Star

A few months ago, someone asked me who the most underrated player in baseball was, and after kicking around a few names, I settled on Arizona outfielder A.J. Pollock. Pollock got to the big leagues as a speed-and-defense center fielder who hit well enough to justify a regular gig, and then had his breakout year derailed last season when Johnny Cueto hit him in the hand with a fastball...

Paul Goldschmidt lined a double that got stuck in the wall

We see balls get stuck between the pads of the outfield wall every so often, but they usually get stuck after a bounce. On Tuesday night, Paul Goldschmidt hit a screamer of a line drive against the Cardinals that got stuck between the pads without even bouncing. That’s a ground rule double. Goldschmidt would score the Diamondbacks’ only run of the night later in the inning on...

The Case for the Diamondbacks

The Postseason? Not this year. Well, not quite for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Snakes are technically only five games back of first in the NL West, which some teams would kill for in their division (see Twins, Minnesota), but it seems highly unlikely they hop over the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. They’re also 10 games back of the Wild Card. But, on the bright...

Four Arizona Diamondbacks Prospects to Watch Out For

The Arizona Diamondbacks aren’t a terrible team – they’re just a mediocre one. And in the brutal National League West, that’s not much of a consolation. The Diamondbacks are stuck in the same division as the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants, the free-spending and division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers, and a San Diego Padres team that tried – and failed...

Ranking Arizona Diamondbacks’ rotation options for 2016

There’s a lot of transition going on in the Arizona Diamondbacks starting rotation right now, and it’s almost hard to keep track of at this point. Going into the 2016 season, the D’Backs are going to have plenty of rotational options, especially if the front office decides to sign an ace in the offseason. Here’s my ranking of all the D’Back pitchers who have had at least...

He was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday and recalled Thursday when Jeremy Hellickson went on the disabled list, Relievers Addison Reed...

Lamb faces Diamondbacks after struggling in first start

While Arizona's Patrick Corbin showed signs of recapturing his 2013 form in his latest start, Cincinnati's John Lamb learned just how quickly a smooth debut can turn sour. The Reds' rookie has another shot to please in his home debut Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series with the Diamondbacks, and both teams are entering with piling losses. Corbin (3-3, 3.43 ERA) threw...
