DIAMONDBACKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Kevin Towers may loose his Powers

Kevin Towers speaks at a Diamondbacks press conference (photo courtesy of bleacherreport.com)   His contract may have been extended to stay beyond 2014, but after a very shaky start to a season in which two key pitchers Patrick Corbin, and David Hernandez were lost due to season ending elbow surgery, (Tommy John Surgery)  it does not bode well for Arizona Diamondbacks general...

Archie Bradley’s agent calls out Diamondbacks for not calling up Bradley

(Rick Scuteri/USA Today Sports)   Kevin Towers has stated that he doesn’t want Archie Bradley to be thrown into a situation where he is viewed as the savior of the rotation. Given the D-backs starting rotation’s woes over the beginning of the season, there isn’t much doubt that Bradley, the Diamondbacks’ top prospect, would be viewed as a savior. Apparently, Bradley’s...

Reno Aces’ SP Archie Bradley Passed On By Diamondbacks

It has been a very odd couple of days for Arizona Diamondback’s minor league phenom Archie Bradley. Just last Friday he had left his wallet on the plane during a trip to Tucson, Arizona from Reno, Nevada as he was giddy about getting prime seats for the flight, or in his words, “I got lucky on the plane and actually got a big seat.  I put it (the wallet) in the pouch in front...

That’s … weird: Yasiel Puig, Hyun-Jin Ryu engage in dugout tickle fight (video)

Before the Los Angeles Dodgers squared off against the rival Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, teammates Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu tried to keep the mood loosey-goosey in the dugout by engaging in a tickle fight, of all things. It’s rare to see two grown ass men tickle each other, but I suppose that’s what makes […] The post That’s … weird: Yasiel Puig, Hyun-Jin Ryu engage...

Another 'frustrating' outing for Cahill, another loss for D-backs

PHOENIX -- No one is more frustrated in the way Trevor Cahill is pitching than Cahill himself. Like every Diamondback, he wants to be the player to begin the turnaround from a disappointing start, now 4-11.  It did not happen Sunday, when the Dodgers and tormentor-in-chief Adrian Gonzalez left Chase Field with an 8-6 victory and a three-game sweep, and it leaves the D-backs in a...

Trevor Cahill knows he must get better soon

Trevor Cahill isn't stupid. He knows what people are saying about him, even if he swears he rarely reads the sports pages or listens to much sports-talk radio. "When things are going bad," the Diamondbacks right-hander said, "I'm definitely not looking at any of the media stuff. I try to keep my head out of that stuff." And, yes, things are going bad...

Gonzalez's two-run home run in the third inning gave the Dodgers a 4-0 lead, and it was 5-0 before A.J. Pollock hit the first pinch-hit home run of his career in the fifth, the only run Arizona would...

Paging Mr. Towers – Please call Triple-A Reno ASAP.

For a moment at least, I for once found myself agreeing with Arizona Diamondbacks’ GM Kevin Towers on something; on the morning radio show on Arizona Sports 98.7 with Doug and Wolf, Towers said of his team’s sluggish start, “We realize it’s April. We don’t want to panic, we don’t want the players to think we’re panicking. But to me, if things don’t get better,...

Three things the Diamondbacks need to do to turn their season around

(Photo courtesy of the @Dbacks official Twitter account.)   After falling to 2-7 to open up their 2014 season, it’s a good time to remind the Diamondbacks and their fans that a Major League Baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint. To say that there’s time to turn their fortunes around would be an understatement, with 153 games left on the schedule. However, if the D-backs...
