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...
Last night was fun. The Diamondbacks punished Jered Weaver just like they should have, launching three homers off the diminished right-hander. But after a late Ryan Schimpf home run, the D-backs’ lead shrunk to the three, resulting in anxiety. Would Torrey Lovullo get Fernando Rodney up? Just the night before, Rodney surrendered five runs on six hits while recording just …

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...

Almost a month into the MLB season, it’s hard not to notice the Arizona Diamondbacks’ early competence. A team that lost 93 games a season ago now stands at 14-8, one of the best records in the league. With the NL Wild Card seemingly wide open, does the team have a real shot at playoff run? It’s a reasonable question to ask. After swinging for the fences in 2016, trading super...

An infamous line was broadcast to the world by the young kids in the classic flick “The Sandlot.”“You play ball like a girl!”It was a term to use as a demeaning way to show females were incapable of playing such a sport. We can finally say that isn’t true now.Major League and USA Baseball recently launched the “Trailblazer Series” which is a new baseball tournament...
The Arizona Diamondbacks bullpen could charitably be described as not particularly great. A more straightforward talker would call the group pretty lousy. We currently have them projected as the very worst group of relievers in Major League Baseball. The closer is 40 years old and has some of the most significant command problems of any pitcher in the league. The best 2016 ERA of...
Since people take us for experts for some reason, we’re commonly asked what we consider important in the season’s very early going. What’s most important — and this should be abundantly clear — is that there’s active baseball in the first place. At the very least, there’s spring-training baseball, and as of just yesterday, there’s meaningful baseball. That’s it...
Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta, unlike many others that play his position, is no easy out.Arrieta recorded a career-high 17 hits last season, with two home runs as well. It didn’t take him long to hit one this year, either, even though it was in an exhibition game.The Cubs squared off against the Diamondbacks in a Grapefruit League game on Thursday, and Arrieta took a pitch from Zack...
