Greinke frustrated by slow recovery from injury

PHOENIX (AP) Arizona Diamondbacks ace Zack Greinke is making slow progress in his return from injury, too slow for his liking. ''It would have been nice to be back a week ago,'' he said before Wednesday's game against Toronto, his first public comments since he went on the disabled list July 3 with a left oblique strain. Greinke was to try to throw off the mound ''nice and easy...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Godley’s two mistakes prove costly

  Historically, the Arizona Diamondbacks had difficulty keeping the Jays’ Edwin Encarnacion in the ball park.

Trading Zack Greinke and Shelby Miller is Not In the Cards

A little over week ago, we unleashed our 2016 Midseason Plan, looking to improve a team that has underwhelmed for a wide host of reasons. The moves, in case you didn’t notice, were mostly small. Trades of Yasmany Tomas and Welington Castillo were proposed, and I guess those aren’t the smallest of transactions, but the rest of the ideas …

Tony La Russa talks mysterious ‘issue’ with Shelby Miller

Most people felt the Arizona Diamondbacks gave up too much to acquire Shelby Miller from the Atlanta Braves over the winter, and the deal looks even worse now that Miller has been optioned to Triple-A. To say that Miller has struggled would be an understatement. He posted a 2-9 record and a whopping 7.14 ERA through the first half of the season, making him one of the worst starting...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Midseason Awards

The Arizona Diamondbacks enter the All-Star break dead last in the National League West with the sixth-worst record in baseball at 38-52.

Jake Lamb’s Revamped Swing Made Him an All-Star (Snub)

It’s important to note, considering the title of this post, that Jake Lamb is presently not a member of the National League All-Star team. It’s certainly not for lack of production. Lamb’s played enough to qualify for the batting title, and his 3.5 Wins Above Replacement rank 13th among all position players, right alongside All-Star third basemen Nolan Arenado and Matt Carpenter...

WATCH: Paul Goldschmidt’s foul ball obliterates fan’s beer and snacks

Ballparks are active places, and fans must plan accordingly for foul balls, which means keeping your head on a swivel and making sure one is in a proper position to avoid potential pop-up foul ball.

Diamondbacks prank Jake Lamb with real lamb in locker

Ah, the ol' lamb in the locker. One of baseball's most time-honored, sheep-centric clubhouse gags. Or something.

The Arizona Diamondback’s intriguing depth at Catcher

The first half of the season has not gone the way many Diamondbacks fans had hoped at its outset.  As of Tuesday they are eleven games under .500, and look to be completely out of contention in the NL West and Wild Card races.  There was a decent amount of hype surrounding the Diamondbacks this past winter.
