Diamondbacks optioned RHP Silvino Bracho to Triple-A Reno.

Bracho was called up on April 15 and saw playing time in one game prior to being dropped back down to Triple-A on Thursday evening. In his lone appearance, he put in three innings of work against the Marlins, allowing one run on three hits with a strong seven strikeouts in that cup of coffee. He could see time with the big league team again later this season depending on when the D-Backs need an additional bullpen arm.

Jesus Aguilar went 3-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Aguilar had an RBI double in the fifth inning before knocking a two-run single in the sixth. He also had another double in the contest. The 27-year-old has proven a very productive platoon hitter, playing primarily against lefties, and he's hitting .414/.485/.552 in 29 at-bats this year.

Ryan Braun (calf) hit a pinch-hit, three-run home run in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Braun said before the game that he hoped his calf was well enough that he could play Friday, and he found his way into Thursday's game at a pivotal point in the sixth inning. He certainly seemed well enough, ripping a Junichi Tazawa offering over the left-center field wall for the three-run shot. It was also his 1,000th career RBI. Assuming no setbacks, Braun should be back in the lineup Friday. He's hitting .214/.250/.464 on the year.

Chris Owings was diagnosed with a head contusion after leaving Thursday's win over the Giants following a third-inning collision with A.J. Pollock.

Owings crashed into fellow outfielder A.J. Pollock while making a catch in the third inning, taking a knee to the face in the process. He subsequently left the game and was later diagnosed with a contusion -- a fancy way of saying that he bruised his head. Expect him to be run through the concussion protocol in the coming days. A timeline for his return should clarify once he's further removed from the initial injury.
Apr 20 - 12:30 AM

A.J. Pollock went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Giants.

Pollock had the key hit of the game, snapping a 1-1 tie via a solo home run off Ty Blach to lead off the sixth inning. He's up to four home runs, now, to pair with a .254/.311/.582 batting line. Of his 17 hits this season, a hearty 13 have gone for extra bases. All power comes with a price, though, and Pollock has also struck out eight times in his last 12 at-bats.
Apr 20 - 12:25 AM

Dillon Peters walked five and allowed four runs over 4 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Brewers.

Peters has oscillated good and bad starts, following up a win his last time out with Thursday's clunker. Even in his good starts, he hasn't been dominant -- through Thursday, Peters now has a 12/11 K/BB ratio in four starts. It's tough to trust young hurlers, and that seems to be the case with the 25-year-old as well. Peters will look to improve upon his 6.98 ERA and 1.71 WHIP when the Marlins travel west to face the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Apr 20 - 12:22 AM

Ketel Marte went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Giants.

In what was a low-scoring contest, Marte's solo home run in the seventh inning provided a crucial bit of breathing room, increasing the home team's lead from 2-1 to 3-1. They would ultimately secure victory by that final score. The second baseman is slashing .237/.266/.382 with one homer -- the shot he bopped on Thursday -- and eight RBI through his first 18 games of the 2018 season.
Apr 20 - 12:18 AM

Brandon Belt went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Belt got the Giants on the board with a solo home run off Zack Greinke to lead off the second inning. That would finish as the only run the team plated in the loss. It was the first baseman's third dinger of the young campaign. in addition, Belt is working to a .255/.361/.471 triple-slash and has driven in seven runs over the course of 15 games played. He has now homered in back-to-back contests.
