Arizona Diamondbacks

  1. Daniel Hudson will undergo Tommy John elbow surgery

    Jun 30, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    The assumptions made Wednesday were correct. As first reported by MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert, then confirmed moments later by the player himself, Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson needs Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. Hudson was diagnosed earlier this week with a torn ulnar collateral ligament and got the same news Friday in a second opinion from Dr.…

  2. Aaron Hill makes history with his second cycle of the season

    Here’s something you don’t see every day. Or week. Or month. Or year. Or decade. Well, you get the point. After hitting for the cycle back on June 18, Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill did it again tonight against the Brewers in Milwaukee. That’s right, two cycles in the space of 12 days. And the…

  3. Trevor Bauer shaky in major league debut

    Trevor Bauer Getty

    The Trevor Bauer experience got off to a bit of a shaky start tonight in Atlanta. In the most hyped debut for a starting pitcher since Yu Darvish in April, the 2011 No. 3 overall pick allowed two runs over four innings as part of a no-decision against the Braves. Bauer struck out Michael Bourn…

  4. UPDATE: Daniel Hudson has a torn UCL

    Jun 27, 2012, 5:24 PM EDT

    Daniel Hudson Getty

    UPDATE: The worst news possible. Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic just spoke with Kirk Gibson, and he says that Hudson has a torn UCL.  Hudson’s agent says he’s going to get a second opinion, but that’s usually a one-way ticket to Tommy John surgery. Sorry, Dbacks fans. Sorry, Hudson. 11:11 AM: The Diamondbacks have…

    Derek Norris

    I’m back after a week’s vacation. I wrote up a long sappy version of it last week, but here’s the short version: San Diego for five days, during which I took Mookie and Carlo to their first ever major league game to see the Rangers vs. the Padres last Monday night. It was a doubly…

  6. Trevor Bauer to make major league debut Thursday

    Jun 24, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    Rather than give Josh Collmenter another spot start, the Diamondbacks will promote top prospect Trevor Bauer in time to start Thursday’s game against the Braves, Jack Magruder of FOXSportsArizona.com reports. Bauer was removed from his start Sunday after 50 pitches, suggesting that the Diamondbacks were looking at it as a tuneup for Thursday’s outing. The…

  7. Joe Saunders scratched from start last night after having trouble getting loose

    Jun 23, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Miami Marlins

    Is Trevor Bauer time upon us? Maybe. According to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, Joe Saunders was scratched from his scheduled start last night against the Cubs because he had trouble getting loose. Josh Collmenter got the call at the last minute and allowed one run over four innings. Brad Ziegler, Craig Breslow, Bryan Shaw and…

  8. Stephen Drew expected to rejoin Diamondbacks next Wednesday

    Jun 21, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    Stephen Drew

    Stephen Drew hasn’t played in a major league game since undergoing right ankle surgery 11 months ago, but he’s finally close to rejoining the Diamondbacks’ lineup. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said on Arizona Sports Radio 620 earlier today that the team is hopeful that Drew will be activated from the disabled list next Wednesday.…

  9. Aaron Hill hits for cycle in win over Mariners

    Jun 19, 2012, 12:26 AM EDT

    Aaron Hill AP

    Aaron Hill hit for the cycle tonight in the Diamondbacks’ 7-1 win over the Mariners. Hill singled in the first inning, tripled in the third, doubled in the fifth and socked a solo home run in the seventh to complete the feat. He’s the second player to hit for the cycle this season, joining Mets’…

  10. Red Sox wanted Gerardo Parra from D’Backs for Youkilis

    Jun 17, 2012, 5:05 PM EDT

    gerardo parra getty

    This is an interesting bit of inside information. As reported Saturday by Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona, the Red Sox asked for outfielder Gerardo Parra from the D’Backs when shopping third baseman Kevin Youkilis earlier this month. Parra is only 25 years old, making close to the league minimum, an elite defensive outfielder and an important…

  11. Mark Grace calls Jason Kubel’s home run

    Jun 15, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    crystal ball

    I’m guessing Mark Grace’s prediction of Jason Kubel hitting a homer was more a function of optimistic homerism than it was actual insight or clairvoyance, but it’s still pretty cool. And I bet Grace was absolutely insufferable about it for the rest of the night too.  As would I be. Really, I’d be rubbing that…

  12. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 15, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Dusty Baker, Brandon Phillips

    Reds 12, Indians 5: One in a bunch of lopsided Thursday games. Brandon Phillips simply abuses Indians pitching as a rule and he did so again yesterday, driving in four. And he likes it too. He said after the game: “Deep down, it feels good to beat up on the Tribe.” Michael Brantley extended his hitting…

  13. J.J. Putz is way excited about his Justin Bieber autograph

    Jun 13, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

    J.J. Putz

    Here’s something I did not know: Panini puts out Justin Bieber trading cards. And, apparently, the Diamondbacks got a box of said cards in the clubhouse, J.J. Putz pulled an autographed card and Brad Ziegler was there to capture the excitement. Putz does have twin daughters, age 7, so he’s probably not going to keep…

  14. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 13, 2012, 6:02 AM EDT

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  15. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 11, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Torii Hunter, Mark Trumbo

    Angels 10, Rockies 8: Mark Trumbo hit two three-run homers to help the Angels complete what was nothing short of an annihilation of the Rockies’ pitching staff. Trumbo is at .326/.380/.632. It would have been optimistic to predict those numbers from Pujols before the season started. Nationals 4, Red Sox 3: Bryce Harper had the…

  16. Aramis Ramirez sits out fifth straight game with quad strain

    Jun 7, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    aramis ramirez ap

    Aramis Ramirez went through pregame drills today in the hopes of returning to the Brewers’ lineup, but instead he’ll sit out a fifth consecutive game with a strained quadriceps muscle. Cody Ransom is starting at third base in Ramirez’s absence and manager Ron Roenicke has juggled the batting order to get Corey Hart into the…

  17. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 6, 2012, 6:51 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 7, Mets 6: The legend of Bryce Harper grows. A game-winning hit in the 12th inning. What say you, Harper? “I’m happy to get the W, of course. I’m happy to get that walk-off hit, but I don’t like going 2 for 7,” Harper said. “I don’t like striking out twice in one game,…

  18. D’Backs owner Ken Kendrick takes on Stephen Drew, Justin Upton

    Jun 5, 2012, 7:06 PM EDT

    Ken Kendrick celebrates after winning the National League West in Phoenix.

    Ken Kendrick, managing general partner of the Diamondbacks, decided to go public with his frustrations regarding Stephen Drew and Justin Upton on Tuesday. Drew, of course, has yet to play this season after breaking and tearing ligaments in his ankle last July. He has recently been participating in extended spring training games. That’s not enough…

  19. First-round winners and losers from the MLB draft

    Jun 4, 2012, 11:33 PM EDT

    Marcus Stroman

    Sure, one generally has to wait four or five years to really sit back and analyze how a draft turned out. But why let that stop us from picking some winners and losers from Monday evening’s first round. Winners Dodgers – Corey Seager will likely prove to be a tough sign, but the high school…

  20. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 4, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Yankees 5, Tigers 1: If I were to tell you that one of this game’s starting pitchers — Justin Verlander or Phil Hughes — was going to toss a complete game, I’m guessing none of you would have guessed it would be Hughes.  But that he did, allowing one run on four hits. Verlander loses…

  21. Johan Santana expected to get some extra rest before his next start

    Jun 2, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

    Johan Santana Reuters

    Johan Santana is feeling fine one day removed from throwing a career-high 134 pitches in last night’s historic no-hitter against the Cardinals, but he’s expected to get some extra rest before his next start. No official announcement from the team yet, but Bob Klapisch of the Bergen Record reports that the Mets will add rehabbing…

  22. Stephen Drew ready to go nine innings

    Jun 1, 2012, 1:03 AM EDT

    Stephen Drew

    Stephen Drew is getting closer to returning to the Arizona lineup. He’ll play nine innings in extended spring games both Friday and Saturday as he further steps up his rehab. Drew has been on the DL all season after suffering a broken ankle sliding into home plate last July 20. The Diamondbacks, though, have gotten…

  23. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 31, 2012, 5:45 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Texas Rangers

    Mariners 21, Rangers 8: Look, we can point to Justin Smoak driving in a half dozen runs, Jesus Montero nearly hitting for the cycle or any number of other things as being the cause of this bloodbath. But the fact is, Derek Holland shaved his mustache the other day, and there is likely a causal…

  24. Diamondbacks place Jason Kubel on paternity leave list

    May 30, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

    kubel ap

    From Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic comes word that the Diamondbacks have placed Jason Kubel on the paternity leave list and called up 24-year-old outfielder A.J. Pollock to take his place. Kubel should be back within three days. The 30-year-old is off to a nice start this season, batting .297/.385/.461 with four home runs…

  25. A’s rookie Ryan Cook’s 23-inning scoreless streak snapped

    May 29, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Minnesota Twins

    Coming into yesterday’s game A’s rookie Ryan Cook hadn’t allowed a run in 23 innings this season, but his scoreless streak ended when the Twins got to the 25-year-old right-hander for two runs in an eighth-inning comeback that snapped the streak and handed him a loss. And naturally the runs scored on a bloop double…
