    The latest pitcher headed for Tommy John elbow surgery is Diamondbacks reliever David Hernandez, who was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament.

    Chicago White Sox v Detroit Tigers

    Making official what was expected from the moment they acquired him from the White Sox this offseason, the Diamondbacks announced that Addison Reed will begin the season in the closer role. J.J.

    Detroit Tigers v Atlanta Braves

    We tried this with the rotations the other day. Once again, I’ll be dipping into my 2014 projections here to rank the bullpens. To come up with the following bullpen ERAs, I simply combined each team’s seven highest-IP relievers, according to my projections. AL Royals – 2.93 Red Sox – 3.14 Athletics – 3.16 Rangers…

    As expected, the Diamondbacks have placed right-hander J.J. Putz on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right elbow. Putz suffered the injury Tuesday night during a relief appearance against the Dodgers and could sidelined for an extended period of time. In fact, ESPN’s Buster Olney says “all signs point” to the veteran needing a…

  12. J.J. Putz left last night’s game with elbow stiffness

    May 8, 2013, 9:13 AM EST

    J.J. Putz

    This isn’t good: J.J. Putz left his appearance last night because of elbow stiffness. Putz has been struggling so far this year — he’s allowed six runs on 12 hits and eight walks in twelve and two-thirds — and perhaps this is the reason why.  If he is DL’d, the Dbacks’ options at closer are David Hernandez,…

  15. Diamondbacks give J.J. Putz one-year, $7 million extension

    Jan 14, 2013, 6:13 PM EST

    J.J. Putz

    In case anyone was thinking Arizona’s plan was to let Heath Bell set up for a year and then turn the closer’s role over to him in 2014, the Diamondbacks made it clear Monday that they intend to keep the status quo; they signed J.J. Putz to a one-year, $7 million extension for 2014, the…

  16. Diamondbacks strike first, aim badly

    Oct 20, 2012, 6:15 PM EST

    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…

    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. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  20. Running down the rosters: Arizona Diamondbacks

    Feb 16, 2012, 1:04 AM EST

    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…
