Dodgers make Ray pay for rocky start, hold off D-backs, 4-3

PHOENIX -- Robbie Ray might be classified as a major-league rookie, but he's already well versed in the fickle nature of the baseball gods. And so he was not flummoxed to have suffered through the worst start of his Diamondbacks tenure on Wednesday night vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers. "That's baseball," said Ray, who saw his record slip to 2-4 with a 2.55 ERA. "It's going to happen...

PHOENIX -- Patrick Corbin's return from Tommy John surgery is coming soon -- maybe sooner than expected. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Wednesday that Corbin is a possibility to start Saturday's game against the Colorado Rockies.

D-backs' Hernandez still has hurdles after Tommy John surgery

PHOENIX -- The mental battle Diamondbacks reliever Daniel Hudson faced before settling into his relieving role felt very real for Arizona reliever David Hernandez on Tuesday night.

Instead...
