Dugout Digest – more meaningful baseball!

Round two of the “meaningful baseball experiment” in Australia took place on Saturday night and in a sharp contrast to Saturday morning’s game, the offense of both teams was on full display Game of the Night: Dodgers 7, Diamondbacks 5. All that class and playing the game the right way rhetoric has done nothing for the Diamondbacks except get them an 0-2 record. Good job, good...

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- With Martin Prado at the plate in the third inning Tuesday in Peoria, Paul Goldschmidt took off from first base to second.

Diamondbacks’ Martin Prado seeks offensive consistency after slow start to 2013

It was 8:15 on Tuesday morning, and Diamondbacks third baseman Martin Prado wore a smile on his face and a wool hat designed to look like a medieval helmet on his head. One more thing about the knitted cap: It had a built-in beard. “I don’t know who gave that to him,” second baseman Aaron Hill said. “But he was eating it up a little bit.” To his teammates’ delight,...

The Two Biggest Weaknesses of the Arizona Diamondbacks

When you’re a good-but-not-great team, there aren’t a whole lot of weaknesses. As an entirely average club lately, the Diamondbacks don’t have many (if any) problem positions. They have solid players across the diamond, a rising star in Paul Goldschmidt and have the depth to cover a few injuries. There isn’t a lot to be worried about here. Of course, there isn’t a lot...

Player Profile #135: Martin Prado | 2B/3B/OF | ARI

There’s nothing flashy about Martin Prado, but when it comes to balanced production you won’t do much better this far down the ranks. Last year he spent most of his time shuffling between 2nd and 6th in the order and while slates him at 6th, I see him doing much of the same shuffling again in 2014. In his first year in Arizona Prado’s production was rather...

Prospect Profile: Matt Davidson | 3B | ARI

HistoryMatt Davidson was a first round pick of the Diamondbacks out of H.S. back in 2009, so you know the raw tools are present; this also indicates the D-Backs have a significant investment in him. He has been at the back end of most Top 100 prospects lists since about 2011 while never really cracking higher than 80 on any. Though he got service time in August and September of the...

Martin Prado made an insanely impressive (and clutch) diving catch last night

Diamondbacks third baseman Martin Prado flashed this web gem in the ninth inning of last night’s game against the Padres. With the score tied 9-9 and the bases loaded with two outs, Prado lays out and robs a sure base hit (if it stayed fair) that would have likely scored at least two runs for San Diego. Instead, the Padres headed back to the dugout with nothing and the Diamondbacks...
