DIAMONDBACKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ziegler survives shot to the ribs

PHOENIX -- It hurt to walk, but Brad Ziegler could laugh about the line drive that hit him squarely in the rib cage Tuesday. "It's like getting punched really hard in the chest," Ziegler said after the D-backs' 5-4 victory over Detroit at Chase Field. "Walking, I feel it. The jarring makes everything kind of vibrate in the area. It makes it tender. Talking...

RubberDucks Notebook: Linton wants to show his abilities

Week Review The RubberDucks (57-46) started their second half of the season on a rough note, dropping five of their last six. This includes a five-game skid they have headed into tonight’s game against Richmond. Akron currently sits back four and a half games from the EL Western first-place Flying Squirrels (60-41). Player Spotlight: Ollie Linton Injuries are a natural part of...

Wade Miley (SP, ARI) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in All Leagues ANALYSIS: Wade Miley is only owned in slightly more than a 1/4 of Yahoo! leagues, and at this point I’m convinced it’s because he’s got a really junky sounding name, because there’s really no other explanation. Miley’s fastball velocity has been increasing each month, and he has a lot of room […]

Gibson: 'I wasn't a disgrace to the uniform; but I was crazy'

PHOENIX -- Arizona manager Kirk Gibson still has a special place in his heart -- and in Comerica Park -- for the Detroit Tigers. He's had Tigers' season tickets since the early 1980s, and he attended playoff games there the last two years.  The fact that former owner Tom Monaghan once called him "a disgrace to the Tiger uniform with his half-beard, half-stubble"...

WATCH: Paul Goldschmidt crushes another huge home run

Your browser does not support iframes.   Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Paul Goldschmidt crushed another monster home run last night. These majestic bombs are becoming quite routine for the two-time All-Star, who just continues to produce like a machine. The homer marked Goldy’s 18th home run (6th in the N.L.) and 64th and 65th RBIs (tied for 1st in the N.L.) and why he...

WATCH: Diamondbacks broadcasters don Storm Trooper and Chewbacca outfits for Star Wars day

Your browser does not support iframes.   Everyone knows that Star Wars Day is the greatest ballpark promotion ever. Diamondbacks TV broadcasters Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly agree. Brenly and Berthiaume donned some awesome Star Wars outfits on the air for the D-backs’ pregame show. Berthiaume was a Storm Trooper, and Brenly was Chewbacca. Not only did the announcers get in...

WATCH: D-Backs announcers go all out for 'Star Wars' Day

Appearances at Comicon? Check. Starting pitcher dressed as a Jedi? Check. Bobblehead of starting pitcher dressed as a Jedi? Check. An endless array of puns and graphics? Check. Clark the Cub as an Ewok? Check. Announce team dressed as a Stormtrooper and Chewbacca, respectively? Check. I’ve got nothing else to say.

Miley battles but stays hot in D-backs win

PHOENIX -- With as high as Wade Miley had set the bar through his first three starts in July, it didn't take much for the Diamondbacks left-hander to have his worst outing of the month. But to apply such a label to Miley's performance against the Cubs on Saturday is misleading. He had to battle a bit but Miley continued his red-hot month with an efficient night that earned...

Tigers interested in Brad Ziegler, but can they get him?

If anything the last couple of games for the Tigers is a continued indication that they need bullpen help if they’re going to make a run at the World Series this year. With that in mind reports today surfaced that the team is interested in Arizona right-handed reliever Brad Ziegler… the only catch is he’s one of the players the D-Backs are said to be holding onto in the midst...

WATCH: D-Backs fan runs onto field, gets away from security

One particular Arizona Diamondbacks fan was so excited for the second half of the season to begin that he ran onto Chase Field on Friday night. During the ninth inning of the Cubs-Diamondbacks game, this fan wanted a selfie with Gerardo Parra so he took to the outfield—cell phone in hand. He didn’t get the selfie he was seeking, but did meet the venue’s security crew. As they...

Arizona Diamondbacks: the Daniel Hudson story

Ladies and gentleman we’ve arrived at the worst part of the sports year. There have been no professional sporting events happening since Sunday, unless you count the dreadful MLB All Star Game which was essentially three hours of Harold Reynolds spewing romantic poetry about Derek Jeter. I’m getting nauseated. I sit here in a juror assembly room with about 200 other miserable...

Aaron Hill in the deep valley

Not a whole lot of good things have happened for the Arizona Diamondbacks this season. Currently, the team is in last place in the National League West behind the equally disappointing Rockies by a half a game. While there have been many reasons for the stumbling of the Diamondbacks this season, Aaron Hill seems to have become one of the real symbols of a team's fall from respectability...
