    Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Cardinals are shopping shortstop Pete Kozma, who is currently on the outside looking in for an Opening Day roster spot with the defending National League champions. Rubin says the Mets probably aren’t interested because Kozma is “not really” an upgrade over projected starting shortstop Ruben Tejada.…

  12. Chris Owings the favorite over Didi Gregorius for D-Backs’ starting shortstop job

    Mar 16, 2014, 11:40 PM EST

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Arizona Diamondbacks

    ESPN’s Jim Bowden hears that Chris Owings is the favorite over Didi Gregorius for the Diamondbacks’ starting shortstop job. Owings, 22, has not had a particularly great showing this spring, but has out-hit Gregorius in OPS, .698 to .541. Gregorius, 24, wasn’t particularly impressive in his rookie season in 2013, posting a .704 OPS. Owings…

    Mar 13, 2014, 7:52 AM EST

    Mets shortstop Tejada cannot field an RBI hit by Twins' Plouffe in Minneapolis

    The Mets shortstop situation is still in flux. Or a mess. Or a tire fire. Or is being overly-focused upon because nothing else is going on. Take your pick. Just know that it’s what everyone who goes to Port St. Lucie is talking about. The latest being John Harper of the Daily News. Who, after noting…

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:52 PM EST

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Colorado Rockies

    The Diamondbacks currently have youngsters Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings fighting it out for their shortstop job, but they’ve weighed settling the battle with a trade, the Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro reports. The preference would be to acquire a catcher who could potentially back up Miguel Montero in the near future and eventually supplant him…

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

    Jun 28, 2013, 6:52 AM EST

    Yasiel Puig

    Dodgers 6, Phillies 4: Six straight wins for the Dodgers as Yasiel Puig singled home the tying and go-ahead runs in the seventh inning. Puig also smacked into the scoreboard in right field, so he’s basically Bryce Harper in multiple respects. That seventh inning rally was occasioned by the bases being loaded on a walk, a…

    Jun 23, 2013, 10:36 AM EST

    aaron hill getty

    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.

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Colorado Rockies

    Diamondbacks shortstop Didi Gregorius homered on the first pitch he saw this season, a Phil Hughes fastball that went into the Yankee Stadium stands in left-center.

    Apr 28, 2013, 8:20 PM EST

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Colorado Rockies

  19. D-Backs get good news on Jason Kubel, Didi Gregorius

    Apr 27, 2013, 6:45 PM EST

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Colorado Rockies

    Outfielder Jason Kubel will be ready to rejoin the Diamondbacks’ lineup on May 1 after he makes a few rehab starts with Triple-A Reno. Kubel is recovering from a strained left quadriceps, which dampened his hot start to the season. In his first eight games, he hit .333 with two home runs. Meanwhile, Didi Gregorius…

    Apr 24, 2013, 6:23 AM EST

    Texas Rangers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 5, Rangers 4: Howie Kendrick with two homers, including the walkoff in the 11th. Kendrick after the game: “It’s a great feeling to know that you can leave the other team on the field” I hope someone brings the Rangers some food overnight. Maybe go back to their hotel, get guys a change of…

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

    Apr 22, 2013, 6:22 AM EST

    Detroit Tigers v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Angels 4, Tigers 3: Watched most of this one as I painted a couple of rooms in my house. Two highlights of the game for me were (1) overhearing my girlfriend use some really bad language the second or third time the Tigers left the bases loaded; and (2) Tigers color commentator Rod Allen, when describing…

  22. This guy caught two homers last night in New York

    Apr 19, 2013, 9:05 PM EST

    Didi Gregorius

    The Yankees wrapped up a three-game set with the Diamondbacks last night. It was a 14-inning affair that eventually ended 6-2 in the D-Backs’ favor, but that wasn’t the most interesting thing about the game. Zack Hample, a baseball collector and author of several books including How to Snag Major League Baseballs, caught two home…

  23. Aaron Hill out 4-6 weeks with broken hand, Diamondbacks call up Didi Gregorius

    Apr 16, 2013, 3:49 PM EST

    aaron hill getty

    Aaron Hill got hit on the left hand by a pitch on April 9, but X-rays came back negative and he made a pair of pinch-hitting appearances on April 13 and April 14. He even delivered an RBI double in one of them. But apparently he was doing that with a broken hand, which finally…

    Feb 12, 2013, 2:31 PM EST

    Cincinnati Reds v Chicago Cubs

    The Diamondbacks traded Trevor Bauer to the Indians and received shortstop Didi Gregorius back from the Reds in the three-team deal. But Didi is malfunctioning: Didi Gregorius, considered Arizona’s shortstop of the future, has a right elbow injury that has prevented him from throwing or batting for the past month. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers revealed…

  25. Miguel Montero on Trevor Bauer: “He never wanted to listen”

    Feb 12, 2013, 6:48 AM EST

    Trevor Bauer

    It was understood that the Diamondbacks trade of pitching prospect Trevor Bauer had more to do with the team’s opinion of his attitude than its opinion of his talent. Yes, he struggled during his callup last year, but he just turned 22 and struck out 11.5 batters per nine innings in two minor league seasons.…
