If it weren’t for Rubby De La Rosa, D-Backs would be buried

At the start of Spring Training, Rubby De La Rosa was considered to be the Diamondback’s weakest link in an otherwise strong rotation. Today, the inverse is true– and the case could be made that he has been the team’s MVP thus far. Seriously. If it weren’t for Rubby De La Rosa, the Diamondbacks might be […] If it weren’t for Rubby De La Rosa, D-Backs would be buried...

Mean Tweets: Shelby Miller edition

Shelby Miller’s struggles continued last night, as he allowed six earned runs in five innings. This bumped his season ERA up to 7.09, a number that would give him the highest ERA in the NL. But since he’s made it through so few innings, he doesn’t even qualify for that. Needles to say, there is […] Mean Tweets: Shelby Miller edition - Venom Strikes - Venom Strikes - An Arizona...

Archie Bradley is turning heads in Triple-A

Archie Bradley hasn’t had much big-league success in his time in the majors.

Robbie Ray Breaking Balls

Has Robbie Ray been unlucky this season? He sports a weirdly high .343 BABIP this season, and a staggering 27.0% line drive percentage — both numbers that few pitchers maintain over the course of a season. Last year, the highest BABIP for a qualified starter was Gio Gonzalez‘s .341 — and even after getting shelled last night, Gonzalez has …

Arizona Diamondbacks: What’s wrong with Shelby Miller?

The only thing worse than the Arizona Diamondbacks’ new uniforms this year has been newcomer Shelby Miller’s numbers.

That’s not exactly what general manager Dave Stewart had in mind when he traded a proven major league outfielder...

The Rise Of Jake Lamb

At the beginning of the season, the discussion of the top third basemen in the NL included the names Nolan Arenado, Kris Bryant, and Matt Carpenter. There wasn't much hype surrounding Jake Lamb making the leap into these discussions as a top-tier third baseman. However, this season he has been a man on a mission.While Spring Training stats aren't typically indicative of the...

Jean Segura's Resurgence In The Desert

Greinke has two wins and an ERA over 5.00 while Miller owns a 7.36 ERA and has tossed just one quality start....
