Despaigne, Padres look to stop Inciarte, D'Backs

Ender Inciarte is off to a torrid start to 2015, and the San Diego Padres should be quite familiar with him. Inciarte looks to build on perhaps his best offensive performance as the Arizona Diamondbacks go for another win over the Padres on Tuesday night. Inciarte hit .278 with 27 RBIs in 118 games as a rookie last year, mustering at least three hits four times while not recording...

D-backs' Inciarte, Peralta hope to seize opportunity once again

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Ender Inciarte and David Peralta are Venezuelans, outfielders and opportunists. And they're at the heart of a Diamondbacks domino effect this spring. Both players finished Arizona's disappointing 2014 as feel-good stories. That's only a ticket to another opportunity under a new staff and a healthier roster this year. The friends are competing for one starting...

D-Backs have only 3 positions settled as workouts begin

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks begin full-squad workouts with uncertainty at five of the eight non-pitching positions. That's why new manager Chip Hale uses the word ''competition'' in about every other sentence when talking about the team. Those who are a lock for the opening-day lineup - barring injury - are first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, center fielder A.J....

Winter success prepares D-backs' Peralta, Inciarte for encore

PHOENIX -- Any list of pleasant surprises for the Diamondbacks last season includes rookie outfielders David Peralta and Ender Inciarte. Many would consider them one-two -- with right-hander Chase Anderson also in the mix. So perhaps it is no surprise both Peralta and Inciarte continued to thrive in the Venezuelan winter league this offseason, and both are considered integral parts...
