GM Stewart says D-backs don't need major overhaul

Inciarte, The Buy Year Ender

Today, it's the final Buy of the year. Next week, we'll be doing one last roundup on Monday and recaps the rest of the month until I start on 2015 rookies that could make an impact. In other words, where the hell did the summer go? And does this mean I have to go back to spending time with Cougs? To paraphrase the Broadway musical Rent (or maybe it was Abe Lincoln), eight...

Inciarte making the most of his time

PHOENIX -- When Philadelphia claimed Cleveland outfielder Ezequiel Carrera three days into the 2013 season, Ender Inciarte was the odd man out. He lost his major league roster spot with the Phillies and was returned to Arizona, per Rule 5 stipulations. It was the best thing that could have happened, Inciarte believes.

Targets for the stretch run in fantasy baseball

Hopefully, you're still competing for a championship or five in some of your leagues. Like most, I'm in different stages in my many leagues: made the playoffs by the skin of my teeth in my mixed H2H league; am way, way out of it in my NL-only league; might win some money in the staff league; and am treading water in others. I'm still pounding the waiver wire in search...

D-backs face decisions as Trumbo nears return

PHOENIX -- Outfield injuries forced the Diamondbacks to delve into their farm system earlier than planned this season, and they haven't been disappointed. Ender Inciarte has proven to be a more than capable defender in center field and a reliable option as the leadoff hitter. David Peralta had one of the best first months in franchise history.

Diamondbacks Power Past Pirates

This season for the Arizona Diamondbacks has been forgettable. After splitting even in 2013, the Diamondbacks have slid substantially.

Tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates was evidence that...
