Arizona Diamondbacks News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
11/28/13: Arizona manager Kirk Gibson continues to fire verbal jabs at everyone and promote his own team. In the most recent outburst, Gibson proclaimed that the D'backs are the best 'at doing the right thing'. That may be a thinly veiled shot at the Dodgers, who do not appear to know they have a rivalry with Arizona. To Gibson's credit, his players are very involved in social programs and several players went to Australia for a goodwill tour, including a few star players. Those are wonderful actions, though the Dodgers may not care until Arizona proves they are the better team.
11/21/13: The Diamondbacks may not have made the playoffs this season, but they did get (close to) a nice award. First baseman Paul Goldschmidt finished second in the National League MVP voting, losing out to Pittsburgh Pirates' outfielder Andrew McCutchen. Top contender Yadier Molina (catcher for the St. Louis Cardinals) finished third as his votes were split with fellow Cardinal infielder Matt Carpenter. Without Goldschmidt, the D'backs would not have had a chance for a playoff spot, but with him they were competitive until the end of the season. With a few more pieces, Arizona could make a return to the playoffs next season.
11/14/13: There is an interesting rivalry building up in the NL West, though right now it looks like only one team is active in that rivalry. The D'back's owner made the comment that the team owes the Dodgers some payback for last season. The Dodgers came from way back to win and dominate the division. They clinched on Arizona's homefield and celebrated by swimming in the stadium pool. The Diamondbacks are still sore about the situation and want payback. Arizona has a long way to go to catch the Dodgers and the divide could get a lot wider if L.A. goes after top talent in free agency.
11/7/13: Arizona lost a coach and special assistant this week in Brad Ausmus. Ausmus was name the successor of Jim Leyland as the manager of the Detroit Tigers. Ausmus played for the organization in 1996 and again in 2000-2001. He is the latest in a trend of hiring young, first time managers who once played for the team they are managing now - presumably because they know the organization and can relate to the players. Others on this list are Robin Ventura with the Chicago White Sox and Mike Matheny of the St. Louis Cardinals - who just led his team to the NL Pennant and a World Series appearance.
10/31/13: 10/31/13: Kirk Gibson's name has been mentioned a lot as a successor to Jim Leyland in Detroit. Perhaps if it was a year later, then it could be taken more seriously. Gibson still has a year left on his contract as manager of the Diamondbacks, and the team decided to keep him on after they faltered in midseason this year. There is always the chance that the Tigers could buy out the remainder of Gibson's contract, though that seems unlikely. Gibson is a highly regarded former Tigers' player, and may be looking for work next year, though.
10/24/13: It is not too early to start looking forward to 2014, and that means getting excited about rookies that have never or just barely played at the major league level. For Arizona, that means 22 year old shortstop Chris Owings. Owings has been stuck at AAA Reno for the past couple of years but was called up late this season. In 17 games, he sported a respectable .295/.380/.386 line that included two stolen bases and four doubles. He is a good defender that can hit, which makes him a better bet than incumbent Didi Gregorious. That being said, Gregoroious is a tremendous artist, literally, as shown by his Batman versus Kane rendering.
10/17/13: Arizona missed the playoffs this season and it was a combination of a mid-season collapse and the rise of the L.A. Dodgers. Manager Kirk Gibson avoided the axe, but his coaches are not as fortunate. In more front office news, GM Kevin Towers, who also avoided being fired, has been forced to clarify his comments about wanting to throw baseballs into the Dodgers dugout. Towers says he was angry that there was no retaliation for Dodgers throwing at D'Back hitters, and so forth. We can all assume that Towers will be rooting for the Cardinals in the NLCS.
10/10/13: For 67 days, which is over two months for those scoring at home, the Arizona Diamondbacks had first place in the NL West. Today, rather than face the Atlanta Braves in the Divisional Round of the National League playoffs, the team on the proverbial golf course while the rival L.A. Dodgers are pursuing the World Series. The D'Backs are the closest team to L.A. in terms of talent, but how do they get better in the offseason so they can compete? Arizona seems content to develop their own players in a long game rather than pursue high priced free agents who do not have a great record of being worth the money.
10/3/13: The Arizona Diamondbacks finished out the 2013 regular season with a win over the Washington Nationals. That was good, and it got the team to 81-81 on the season. However, it was not nearly good enough to make it to the postseason, so it is now time to get the golf clubs out. Several question remain, such as if Kirk Gibson will remain as manager of if the team will find someone else for next year. One thing that is certain is that the Dodgers have asserted themselves as the class of the NL West, so every other team, including Arizona, must get busy in the offseason to compete next year.
9/26/13: The Diamondbacks and their supporters were not happy with the L.A. Dodgers last week. First for winning the NL West. Second for clinching the division on their field. And third for celebrating by swimming in the pool in the stands. Arizona at one time had a 9.5 game lead on the Dodgers. Two and a half months later and it is the D'Backs that are watching from the sideline. Whether the celebration was over the top or not is up to debate and personal opinion. The real fact is that Arizona had their chance to take control of the division in mid-season and let it slip through their fingers.
9/19/13: Though they are not mathematically eliminated from the wildcard spot, time is running out and the Diamondbacks are not playing their best ball of the season. That is a recipe for looking ahead to next year. And that could be interesting because the D'backs have arguably the best pitching prospect in the majors with Archie Bradley. Bradley, the number 7 overall pick in the 2011 draft, has taken advantage of his time in the minors to develop into a pitcher that some are comparing to Justin Verlander. No one expects him to be that good right away, but it is a great counter to the Dodgers in the NL West for the future.
9/12/13: The D'backs have not had a particularly bad season, they are still over .500 as the season comes to a close. They had a chance to take ownership of the NL West and let that slip through their fingers. Now they sit 12 games behind the Dodgers and likely out of the playoffs. That all makes one wonder if the team will retain manager Kirk Gibson for 2014. Arizona seems to have most of the pieces to be a contender and had a great first half. It is the second half of the season which is worrisome. The team may well elect to find a more experienced MLB manager to guide this team next season.
9/4/13: The number 19 should ring in the ears of the Diamondbacks and their fans. Two months ago, the D'Backs had a 9.5 game lead on the L.A. Dodgers. They wasted their chance to put them away. Now the Dodgers have a 9.5 game lead on Arizona. A remarkable 19 game turnaround in just two months. That number could change by the end of the year. But the fact is that the Diamondbacks are now playing to get a wild card spot rather than competing for the division title. The team is six games out of the second spot, and will have to overcome either Cincinnati or St. Louis - while still keeping Washington at bay - to get to the postseason.
8/29/13: The D'backs have a steep climb ahead of them to make the playoffs. They are seven games out of the second playoff spot, so they have to keep building up wins and hope that someone ahead of them falls. They made it even tougher on themselves by getting into an 18 inning, seven hour marathon game with the Phillies last Saturday. The good news is that the D'backs won the game. The bad news is they took a few injuries and depleted their bullpen. Now would be a pretty good time for a couple complete games by the starting rotation.
8/22/13: The National League MVP probably should go to Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina. But if there is one other player who is worthy of consideration, it is Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt. Just look at his performance against Baltimore as a microcosm of his season. Baltimore led the game by one in the ninth inning when Goldschmidt belted a game tying home run. Then he followed it up with a walk-off home run in the 11th inning. Yadi probably should win the MVP, but the D'Backs would not be anywhere near striking distance of a playoff spot if not for PG.
8/15/13: Arizona is the only NL West team that still has an outside shot at catching the Dodgers. The D'Backs are 4.5 games back, which is not insurmountable with six weeks left. The problem is that the Dodgers have been on fire for the past month and moved from worst to first in that span. Arizona is also in the hunt for the wild card. St. Louis currently leads WC standings and is 6.5 games up on Arizona. Cincinnati has the second WC right now, but is only 4.5 games ahead. The Reds and Cardinals have struggled recently, so there is still life in the desert.
8/8/13: The D'Backs now sit 3.5 games behind the L.A. Dodgers - who are easily the hottest team in baseball over the past month. All is not lost, but it will be a tough climb to make the playoffs. One good step was Randall Delgado picking up his first career complete game shutout against the lowly San Diego Padres. He also should buy outfielder Gerardo Parra something nice for the homerun he stole to preserve Delgado's gem. Parra may well be the best defensive outfielder in the game. It was not the first, nor the last time he has made a great catch.
8/1/13: Heading into August, it looks like the D'Backs are the only team that can catch the surging L.A. Dodgers. L.A. has been on a tear since getting several of their players back from injury. The Diamondbacks, for their part, have simply been playing good (not great) as they have all year. That was fine in the first half of the season, but now they need to show they can pitch and hit in the clutch. Arizona has been in the middle of a lot of trade talks in recent weeks - especially for starting pitching - and it will be interesting to see what they are willing to pay in order to make a run at the playoffs this season.
7/25/13: In a blatent attempt to try to get the fans to the stadium, the Arizona Diamondbacks have introduced what may be the most bizarre mascot of all time: Luchador. Luchador appears to be a caped and hooded Mexican wrestler, apparently inspired by the recent popularity of last year's Lucha Libra mask, then Lucha Libra wrestling match. All of which may have been inspired by the film Nacho Libre. It's not the caped and masked man which is so odd, but rather using a professional of another sport to promote your own sport which seems odd. Would it not be strange to see a football team have a basketball player as their mascot?
7/18/13: The NL West is getting very interesting. The L.A. Dodgers, left for dead only a month ago, now occupy the number two spot in the division - trailing the Arizona Diamondbacks by 2.5 games at the All-Star Break. Arizona is a very good team, and has the talent to win the division. However, they do need some help on the mound. They are rumored to be interested in the Chicago Cubs Matt Garza, and will probably pull the trigger to get him if they can. Should they be able to add some pitching, then this could be a great division race down the stretch.
7/11/13: Arizona is currently leading the wild NL West by 4.5 games. All teams are still in the midst, as the cellar-dwelling Padres are only 6.5 games out halfway through the season. Since no one is stepping up as the dominant force, it may take a big deal to move the needle here. The D'Backs and Brewers are reportedly discussing a trade that would send Yovani Gallardo and Francisco Rodriguez to Arizona. The D'Backs would probably pay a fortune for the two pitchers, including their top pitching prospect Tyler Scraggs. But if it means locking down the division and a chance to play for the Worlds Series, then it is probably worthwhile.
7/4/13: There has been a lot of talk show chatter about the Dodgers this week, mostly that they can still win the division. Not many teams in last place at the half way mark win the division, though the Dodgers are only 8.5 games back and are getting healthier. That means nothing to the Diamondbacks. From top to bottom, Arizona is the best managed and talented team. They may not have a $230 million payroll - rather they did it the right way. Come October, the D'backs will likely be still playing, while the rest of the NL West is wondering how they did that.
6/27/13: Believe it or not, but the D'backs have a 3 game lead in the NL West as the All-Star Break nears. Of course everyone in the media wanted the Dodgers and Giants to battle it out. The Dodgers (and their $230 million payroll) have been decimated by injuries and are in last place. The Giants seem to have forgotten how to pitch this season. So opportunity knocked and the D'backs answered the door. It will be interesting to see if Arizona adds anyone at the trade deadline as they push for a playoff spot. Good news for Diamondback fans: the team should be dangerous in the playoffs.
6/20/13: The Diamondbacks and the Dodgers got into a bit of a brawl after a barrage of hits batsmen. The benches emptied and a few punches were thrown. But the real damage was that pitches were coming at batters' heads. MLB handed down the expected suspensions on Friday. Arizona pitcher Ian Kennedy received the biggest ban, a total of ten games. However, that really only means he will miss two starts. Eric Henske received five games for his part in the altercation. Both Kennedy and Henske are appealing their punishments, so they are eligible to play until the appeals process is exhausted.
6/13/13: One reason the D'Backs are in first place in the NL West is Didi Gregorius. The young shortstop was acquired in the offseason in a three team trade that sent Arizona's top pitching prospect Trevor Bauer away. Bauer was the third overall pick in the 2011 draft, and most experts scoffed at the trade. But Didi has been outstanding so far. His is batting well over 300, has 16 extra base hits, and has been a gem defensively. Most scouts missed on the guy, saying he could not hit. But the D'Backs are laughing now - all the way to the NL West title.
6/6/13: The Diamondbacks were trying to do something they had not done much of over the past few years which is to win at Wrigley Field! They have played 11 games at this park in the past and had lost 10 of them. After waiting a little over 2 hours due to the rain delay the Diamondbacks' G. Parra started off the game. On a 1-0 pitch from Cubs, Parra hit a home-run to the right-center field. It was his fourth lead-off home run this season. The Cubs got a few good plays in but it just wasn't good enough. Scott Hairston had his 100th career homer which broke the Cubs five game winning streak. It was a great day for the Diamondbacks!
Patrick Corbin pitched well enough to earn his fourth victory of the season and helped lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 7-4 victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday afternoon. Corbin lasted seven innings, surrendering two earned runs on four hits and two walks. He also added seven strikeouts over the course of his 88 pitches to lower his season earned run average to 3.41 thus far. Offensively for Arizona, Paul Goldschmidt, Aaron Hill, Justin Hill and Miguel Montero all drove in runs in the winning effort. While the team managed just six hits on the day, they got them when they counted as they were a strong 3-7 with runners in scoring position.
Starter Patrick Corbin was strong on Tuesday night as he propelled the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 10-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Corbin pitched six strong innings, surrendering two earned runs on six hits and three walks. He also added seven strikeouts over the course of his 91 pitches, but failed to earn the victory as that was left to the bullpen. Offensively, Stephen Drew and Chris Johnson each went deep, with Johnson leaving the yard twice for his 12th and 13th home runs of the year thus far. Paul Goldschmidt and Miguel Montero each also had RBI's in the winning effort.
RA Dickey picked up his NL-leading 14th win of the season as the New York Mets defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks by the score of 5-1 on Sunday. Joe Saunders got the ball for Arizona and lasted a solid seven innings, surrendering four earned runs on eight hits and three walks. He also struck out five Mets batters over the course of his 105 pitch outing en route to his seventh loss of the year. Arizona's lone run batted in of the game came off the bat of Paul Goldschmidt, his 48th of the year thus far. Overall, however, the D'backs managed just four hits on the day and were 1-6 with runners in scoring position.
Josh Collmenter pitched well enough to earn his second victory of the year thus far as he propelled the Arizona Diamondbacks to an 8-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday afternoon. Collmenter pitched six solid innings, allowing just two earned runs on seven hits and a walk. He also added four strikeouts over the course of his 107 pitch day. Jason Kubel and Chris Young each went deep for the D'backs, while Miguel Montero and Geraldo Parra each also added runs batted in. The team also hit well with runners on base - they managed an impressive 3-5 with runners in scoring position in the victory.
5/2/12 - Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher, Wade Miley was voted NL Rookie of the Month for April. Miley led all National League rookie pitchers with a 3-0 record and a 1.29 ERA in 21 innings. Miley was originally the team's long reliever, but ended up in the starting rotation because of Daniel Hudson's right shoulder injury. In two starts, Miley is 2-0 with 13 strikeouts in 12 and 1/3 innings. His ERA is an impressive 0.00 as he has allowed no earned runs in both his starts. In one of his starts, Miley also took a no-hitter into the sixth inning earlier in the month. This was Miley's first career monthly award.
Joe Saunders gave the Arizona Diamondbacks another strong start on Wednesday night, but unfortunately his effort was not enough to earn the 13-12 D'backs a victory against the Washington Nationals. Saunders allowed two earned runs through 6.1 innings, allowing seven hits and surrendering two walks over 94 pitches. J.J. Putz came in for the ninth and surrendered two earned runs on a home run by Ian Desmond that also scored rookie Bryce Harper. This was Putz's second blown save of the season, inflating his earned run average to 6.48 on the year. Justin Upton added a home run for Arizona in the 5-4 loss.
The Arizona Diamondbacks took two of the first three games in a series against the Miami Marlins to move to an even 11-11 on the season. Joe Saunders improved to 2-1 in 2012 in Friday's 5-0 victory and has gotten off to a smoldering start, posting a 0.90 earned run average through four starts. Saunders went the distance, giving up only three hits in nine innings while striking out four. Youngster Patrick Corbin will make his first career major league start against the Marlins in the fourth and final game of the series. He will face off against starter Mark Buehrle, who has gotten off to a 1-3 start for the Marlins on the season.
In what has proven to be a tough division so far, the Arizona Diamondbacks currently sit at 9-8 in the N.L. West and are 4 games behind the division- leading Los Angeles Dodgers. The team got some bad news last week when it learned that star outfielder Chris Young would be sidelined with a shoulder injury for at least a few weeks. To combat the injury, the team called up top prospect A.J. Pollock, a first -round draft pick in 2009. Pollock was ranked by 'Baseball America' as one of the top five prospects in the Diamondbacks farm system prior to the season. The team will look to Pollock to help fill the void while Young recovers.
Paced by a strong start from young catcher Miguel Montero, the Arizona Diamonbacks begin the 2012 season with a perfect 3-0 record after sweeping the San Francisco Giants in their opening series. While strong performances from Chris Young and Aaron Hill have also helped the D'backs score 17 runs in their first three games, winning efforts from starters Ian Kennedy and Daniel Hudson have helped keep games tight to get the ball to veteran closer J.J. Putz, who already has two saves on the young season. The team will face the 1-3 San Diego Padres in a three-game series this week.
