Arizona Diamondbacks ace Zack Greinke is one of the most dominant pitchers in MLB right now — with a 6-2 record and 2.82 ERA — and it looks like he now has another “out” pitch to add to his arsenal.Greinke pitched another gem in Monday night’s 5-1 win, going 8 2/3 innings and completely shutting down the White Sox hitters, who often look lost at the plate. Some of the swings...
It’s still May. The Cubs are barely over .500. The Brewers are in first place. Needless to say, it’s still somewhat early in the season. Things aren’t going to end up the way they are now. That said, we’re coming up on Memorial Day weekend, and the Arizona Diamondbacks have the fifth-best record in baseball. And if you look at our BaseRuns standings, which attempt to strip...
After signing a stunning six-year, $206.5 million deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Zack Greinke struggled with a 4.34 ERA in 2016. While the 34-year-old may never perform like his insane 2015 season again (1.66 ERA, 9.3 WAR for the Dodgers), Greinke is back to looking like the ace Arizona thought they were getting. Greinke has a 2.82 ERA over an MLB-high 67 innings for the Diamondbacks...

The Diamondbacks’ trade of Jean Segura made sense. Sure, Segura had just put together the best season of his career, his lone season in the desert, and was the team’s most valuable player by fWAR in 2016. It hurt to see him go, no doubt, as Jean’s infectious attitude on the field gave fans a reason to smile. His performance …

McFarland, who’s coming off the DL.

We are about a quarter way through the 162 game schedule and there have been a decent amount of surprises in the standings in each of the six divisions. Perhaps, one of the biggest surprises is that the Arizona Diamondbacks, 41 games into the season, have a hold of the first Wildcard spot in the National League by a half a game with a record of 23-18 over the Los Angeles Dodgers...
Let’s take a look at the standings, shall we? The Diamondbacks are presently sitting in…okay, third place. But while they might be third place in the National League West, they’re also fifth place in the National League, overall, meaning they occupy a playoff spot. In other words, it’s been more of a good start than a bad one. And an encouraging start, given the organizational...
The Arizona Diamondbacks are welcoming back bench coach Rob Gardenhire, who missed time after being diagnosed with prostate cancer.Monday night, the team announced on Twitter Gardenhire would be back returning to his duties for the first time this season.

Bloom of MLB.com. “The first thing I really remember is getting hit in the face.”Iannetta...
Arizona Diamondbacks catcher Chris Iannetta was forced to exit Friday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates after getting hit in the mouth with a 93 MPH fastball from reliever Johnny Barbato.The entire episode was stomach-churning.

Iannetta was facing Pirates reliever Johnny Barbato in the bottom of the seventh inning when he took the 93 mph pitch to his nose area.

Over the last few seasons, the Diamondbacks haven’t been a team worthy of positive attention. Ever since Mike Hazen took the reins back in October, however, we’ve been keeping tabs on them. It started when Dave correctly noted that there wasn’t a clear direction for the D-backs to pick heading into the 2017 season. We’ve seen why through the first six weeks of the 2017 campaign...
Chase Field really has played quite similarly over the last few years to the hitters’ paradise that Coors Field is, and the Colorado Rockies probably wouldn’t argue that after Saturday night.The ball was flying out of Chase Field, with Saturday night’s game having a 481-foot homer and a BROKEN-BAT HOMER.We’ll first look at the 481-foot homer, which came off the bat of Arizona...
The news was expected and on Saturday, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Shelby Miller made it official. He will undergo season-ending Tommy John Surgery. While no timetable for his return has been released, recovery from Tommy John Surgery usually lasts more than one year. With that, Miller shouldn’t be expected to return to the Arizona rotation until late in the 2018 season, at the...
Just about everything from the 2016 season could be viewed as a disaster for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Looking back now, it was probably a bit of foreshadowing when outfielder — and spark plug — A.J. Pollock went down with an elbow injury on the eve of the regular season. Instead of taking a step forward from the 79-83 record they posted in 2015, they took a step back with a...
