Odrisamer Despaigne left Thursday's game against the Brewers with a right forearm strain.

He allowed three hits and two runs in 2/3 of an inning before exiting. Injuries of this nature usually require a stint on the disabled list. The right-hander owns a 2-0 record for the Fish, though he carries an ERA north of six.

J.P. Crawford went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a run scored in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

After starting the year on an absolute cold streak, Crawford has come around at the plate in recent days. He's got nine hits in his last 25 at-bats (.360), with six RBI and five runs scored. The slow start has marred his overall line, though, and he's hitting .208/.255/.375 through Thursday's game.

Tyler Austin had his suspension appeal heard Thursday at MLB offices in Manhattan.

He's trying to get a reduction on his five-game suspension, which stems from fighting with Joe Kelly last week at Fenway Park. Coincidentally, Kelly will have his appeal heard on Friday. Austin should hear back from the league relatively soon. He's been splitting time at first base with Neil Walker.

Rhys Hoskins hit his third home run of the season in a win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Hoskins hit a laser shot down the left field line that landed a few feet fair and cleared the wall by a few feet as well, but they all look the same in the box score. The homer was the third of the year for the 25-year-old, who now has 14 homers, 13 runs scored and three steals in the early weeks of his sophomore campaign. It's certainly shaping up to be another promising one after a great debut, as Hoskins is hitting .327/.486/.618 in 18 games played.

Odubel Herrera went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in a win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Herrera swatted a pair of RBI singles in the affair, one in a five-run second inning and another in the fifth. He's now got hits in each of his last four games and in eight of his last nine, raising his overall line to .333/.380/.455. Herrera has one homer, seven RBI, 10 runs scored and a stolen base in 17 games to date.

Jameson Taillon allowed five runs, lasting just 1 2/3 innings, in Thursday's loss to the Phillies.

Taillon got through the first inning without issue before the wheels completely fell off in the second. A Rhys Hoskins solo homer started the ordeal, and Taillon went on to walk two, hit a batter and allow three hits before exiting. The silver lining is that all of the damage came on singles, and the walks and HBP were self-inflicted, so the outcome could have easily been drastically different with a few different bounces. Even with the dud, it's been a good start to the year for the 26-year-old, who'll carry a 2.86 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 21/7 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's interleague start against the Tigers.

Cesar Hernandez went 2-for-4 with three RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Thursday's win over the Pirates.

Hernandez dealt a big blow to the Bucs when, with the bases loaded and two out and with a 3-2 count he knocked a single that plated all three baserunners. Hernandez also stole his fifth base of the season in the win. There was some concern the 27-year-old might be the odd man out after Scott Kingery went north with the team, but Hernandez has asserted his place in and atop the lineup, hitting .286/.430/.413 through 18 games.

Chris Owings left Thursday's game against the Giants after injuring his head in an outfield collision.

Owings left in the third inning after getting kneed in the face by teammate A.J. Pollock. Not only did Owings hold on for the catch, but he somehow had the presence of mind to throw the ball in despite being in obvious pain. Owings walked off on his own power but will surely be put through the concussion protocol. He went 0-for-1 in his lone at-bat before exiting. Jarrod Dyson will finish out the game in right field for the D'Backs.
