    If a pitcher has a foreign substance on his hand and no one is there to complain about it, does it still raise a stink?

    J.J. Putz Getty

    Diamondbacks reliever J.J. Putz stuck out his pitching hand in an attempt to field Phillies utility infielder Kevin Frandsen‘s grounder in the bottom of the seventh inning tonight. The ball ricoheted off of Putz’s hand to shortstop Cliff Pennington, who threw to first to retire Frandsen and end the inning. Putz retired the side in…

    If you have been out of the loop for the past few hours on this Fourth of July, you missed a wild one at Citi Field. Fending off a pair of dramatic comebacks, the Diamondbacks defeated the Mets 5-4 in 15 innings. It took five hours and 46 minutes to get a winner. The game…

    Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill is back from the disabled list after missing more than two months with a fractured hand that was initially expected to keep him out for 4-6 weeks. Hill actually suffered the injury a week before being placed on the DL, as the Diamondbacks hadn’t determined that it was a fracture…

    Tyler Killian of the Arizona Republic has the news: Second baseman Aaron Hill (broken left hand) is expected to rejoin the Diamondbacks sometime during their three-game series in Washington, which starts Tuesday.

    Mets 4, Braves 3; Mets 6, Braves 1: New York Mets fans are hoping this is a glimpse of the future. Matt Harvey dominating in one game, Zack Wheeler dominating in the next. And, worth noting, Dillion Gee dominating in the game before those even if they did lose in the end. There’s so much…

    Rays 10, Marlins 6: Two three-run homers for Kelly Johnson. He also singled, doubled and stole a base. He has 24 RBI in 21 games in May. Six straight losses for the Marlins despite what was, for them anyway, an offensive outburst. Tigers 6, Pirates 5: While it was his second win in a row…

  10. Aaron Hill healing slower than expected

    May 3, 2013, 11:30 PM EDT

    Aaron Hill

    Diamondback second baseman Aaron Hill is progressing slower than many, including GM Kevin Towers, expected, tweets Nick Piecoro. Hill suffered a fractured left hand on April 9 against the Pirates. Initial estimates had Hill missing 4-6 weeks which put him on track for a mid-May return, but Towers says even a late May return would…

  11. The Brewers are one awful baseball team right now

    Apr 7, 2013, 6:54 PM EDT

    Kyle Lohse

    First of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitches, even though Ryan Braun can’t play because of a neck injury. That leaves them with a three-man bench that just doesn’t work in National League games. Second of all, the Brewers are carrying 13 pitchers. Why on earth is John Axford pitching a second inning in…

  12. Diamondbacks top Cardinals in 16-inning marathon

    St Louis Cardinals v Arizona Diamondbacks

    No one told Josh Collmenter and Mitchell Boggs that it’s too early in the season for games to be lasting past 3 a.m. It took nearly 5 1/2 hours, but the Diamondbacks edged the Cardinals 10-9 in 16 innings Wednesday to claim two out of three in the opening series in Arizona. Cliff Pennington singled…

    John McDonald, David Ortiz

    After losing Chase d’Arnaud for 6-8 weeks following thumb surgery the Pirates have added some middle infield depth by acquiring John McDonald from the Diamondbacks, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Rosenthal reported last week that McDonald was on the trading block because Arizona had stockpiled too many light-hitting veteran infielders and preferred to keep…

  15. Diamondbacks “looking to trade” John McDonald

    Mar 12, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    John McDonald, David Ortiz

    This offseason HardballTalk had several posts wondering why, exactly, the Diamondbacks seemed to be collecting light-hitting utility infielders. It turns out maybe they didn’t know why either. Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that Arizona is now “looking to trade” John McDonald because he’s behind Willie Bloomquist and Cliff Pennington on the depth chart. And that’s…

  19. How the Diamondbacks went from Trevor Bauer to Didi Gregorius

    Dec 11, 2012, 10:06 PM EDT

    Trevor Bauer

    The Diamondbacks and GM Kevin Towers knew all about Trevor Bauer‘s odd delivery and unusual throwing program when they made him the third overall pick in the 2011 draft. If they had questions about him then, they overlooked them in order to get one of the top talents on the board. Now, a year and…

  20. Diamondbacks likely to trade Justin Upton next?

    The Diamondbacks essentially acquired reliever Heath Bell and infielder Cliff Pennington for outfielder Chris Young on Saturday. And FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal thinks they’re not done dealing: I’ll believe Justin Upton will be a Diamondback in 2013 when I see him in an Arizona uniform on Opening Day. Rosenthal envisions Jason Kubel, Adam Eaton and Gerardo Parra…

  21. Diamondbacks strike first, aim badly

    Oct 20, 2012, 6:15 PM EDT

    Cliff Pennington, Jhonny Peralta

    Arizona GM Kevin Towers wanted to upgrade at shortstop and in the bullpen. And apparently he wanted to make sure he did so 5 1/2 months prior to Opening Day. So, he ended up with these two trades: – acquires SS Cliff Pennington and INF Yordy Cabrera from the A’s for OF Chris Young and…
