Coyotes ease Mike Smith's worries with hiring of goalie guru Elkin

Sean Burke was a security blanket for Coyotes goalie Mike Smith. Whenever Smith discussed Burke's impact on his game, he gushed with superlatives. Whenever the possibility of Burke leaving the organization was raised, Smith's eyes widened with fear. Those fears were realized when Burke left his post as Coyotes goalie coach and assistant to the general manager on June 30. But it took...

Mercury set to face Sky star Delle Donne for first time since Finals

PHOENIX -- Elena Delle Donne might just be the best player in the WNBA. In 2013, the Chicago Sky guard beat out Phoenix Mercury center Brittney Griner, that season's first overall draft pick, for WNBA Rookie of the Year, and she's only gotten better since then. The Sky are rising behind the stellar play of Delle Donne, who has taken a huge leap in her play this season following an...

Peralta feels fine after taking pitch to head

PHOENIX -- David Peralta saw the ball headed for his head but couldn't get out of the way. Luckily, he moved just enough so that the 97 mph fastball from the Marlins' Jose Fernandez caught the slightest bit of Peralta's right shoulder before it slammed into his helmet near the ear hole Wednesday night. It left Peralta lying on the ground in front of home plate for a few minutes....

Fernandez too much for D-backs, Marlins take series

PHOENIX -- Jose Fernandez mixed his pitches well, putting together a strong fourth start since returning from Tommy John surgery. One pitch that got away from him nearly spoiled his night. Fernandez struck out 11 in seven innings to lift the Miami Marlins to a 5-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night, but was concerned after hitting David Peralta in the head with...

D-backs tap Godley to make debut Thursday

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks had multiple options to fill Chase Anderson's spot in the rotation and they selected to go with right-hander Zack Godley.

Hale calls out Capps' delivery after Latos stymies D-backs

PHOENIX -- Mat Latos stifled the Diamondbacks for seven innings and Marlins relievers Carter Caps and A.J. Ramos followed suit Tuesday night in a 3-0 Miami victory. Manager Chip Hale and D-backs hitters credited Latos for his performance but Hale said Capps' delivery should not be allowed. Capps takes an odd hop off the pitching rubber toward home plate before releasing the ball...

When played right, D-backs have fun on defense

PHOENIX -- Pitching is sporadic and even the best hitters run into slumps or a dominant opposing hurler. But the Diamondbacks expect to play solid, above-average defense on a consistent basis. That is part of what was so frustrating about the weekend sweep at the hands of the Giants. The D-backs committed a pair of errors in the series and just weren't as crisp as they would have...

Tippett: Speed, skill stand out at Coyotes development camp

Dave Tippett never expected the Coyotes' prospect development camp to offer much in the way of player evaluations. This was more about putting faces to names and setting expectations for players hoping to make it to the NHL level. Even so, two things jumped out at Tippett from the now concluded on-ice portion of the camp. "The speed and skill of the group is very high," he said Thursday...

Strome, Domi, Perlini among Coyotes prospect camp attendees

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- When Coyotes general manager Don Maloney stepped to the podium for a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, his work-weary face told the story of the past two weeks. The NHL's illogical insistence on holding its draft and free agency period in rapid succession has taken its toll on the Coyotes and other teams' management staffs, but at least Arizona's will get...

Vermette, Michalek cap flurry of Coyotes free-agent signings

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- When Don Maloney walked into a 1:30 p.m. press conference at Gila River Arena on Wednesday, he thought he was done with what had already been a pretty good Day 1 of the NHL's free-agency period. When he walked out, the day got much better. On his phone were voicemails from center Antoine Vermette's agent, Allan Walsh.   "When I talked to Antoine's representative...

Grandal, Kendrick lead Dodgers over D-backs in 10

PHOENIX -- Yasmani Grandal homered early and hit a two-run double in the 10th inning to finish with four RBIs, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. Howie Kendrick tied the game with a run-scoring single in the seventh and put the Dodgers ahead by hitting a homer on the second pitch of the 10th from David Hernandez (0-1)...

Dave Tippett onboard with Coyotes' direction

There won't be any statements forthcoming from the Coyotes on this particular topic. They've got enough on their plates thanks to the NHL Draft, free agency and that strange bedfellow of a business partner, the City of Glendale. For Coyotes fans, however, a sigh of relief is likely in order today. Coach Dave Tippett will be back in the fold this season and says he's back onboard...

Snowflake, Page win Division III state titles

The Lobos won their fourth state title and first since a 3A championship in 1989. Snowflake was down 35-19 and Combs was on the verge...

Tomas, O'Brien to play multiple positions for more at-bats

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- When spring training games get underway next week, don't be surprised when the Diamondbacks put third base experiment Yasmany Tomas in the outfield, or when catcher Peter O'Brien plays a little first base. Neither moved should be looked at as a sign of what the D-backs think of each player's defensive abilities. Manager Chip Hale said those two moves will give...
