    Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are close to re-signing rehabbing right-hander Daniel Hudson and backup catcher Henry Blanco.

    daniel hudson getty

    Sad news for Daniel Hudson, as the Diamondbacks announced that the right-hander re-tore his ulnar collateral ligament while rehabbing from Tommy John elbow surgery. For now the team is “exploring all medical options,” but going under the knife for a second surgery seems all but certain. Acquired from the White Sox in mid-2010 as part…

    Rick Porcello Getty

    Bob Nightengale of USA Today reported earlier today that the Diamondbacks would try to flip prospect shortstop Nick Ahmed, one of the pieces from the Justin Upton deal, as part of a trade for Tigers’ right-hander Rick Porcello. However, Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers downplayed his interest in such a scenario this afternoon. Doesn't sound…

  14. The National League is poised to have some excellent rotations

    Dec 4, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez

    Even with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez still up for grabs, the National League already seems set to sport some excellent rotations in 2013. How about this for the top four: Nationals: Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann, Dan Haren, Ross Detwiler Giants: Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Barry Zito Phillies: Roy…

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2.

  16. Daniel Hudson will undergo Tommy John elbow surgery

    Jun 30, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    daniel hudson getty

    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.…

    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…

  18. 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…

  24. Running down the rosters: Arizona Diamondbacks

    Feb 16, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Gerardo Parra, Chris Young, Justin Upton

    Give the Diamondbacks credit; even though all of the team’s key players were already under control for 2012, they didn’t stand pat after winning the NL West crown last season. In writing the team’s postmortem last October, I stated that adding a No. 3 starter had to be the priority. That’s what the team did…
