Nick Ahmed was diagnosed with a small fracture in his right hand after being hit by a pitch Tuesday.

With a DL stint on the way for Ahmed, it looks like Ketel Marte will get a shot in Arizona, which will probably lead to more outfield time for Chris Owings.

Luis Valbuena was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts in Tuesday's road loss against the Dodgers.

Valbuena missed the first month of the season due to a hamstring strain and he just hasn't been able to get on track in two months since. The veteran has been under the Mendoza line since May 17, going just 18 for his past 113 at-bats (.159). There are very few things for fantasy owners to like about Valbuena at the moment.

David Peralta hit a game-tying homer in the bottom of the ninth Tuesday before the Diamondbacks edged the Cardinals 6-5 in 10 innings.

Chris Herrmann won it with a single in the 10th. The Diamondbacks got four of their six runs in the final three innings. Peralta's homer off Seung-Hwan Oh was his eighth of the year. He's still batting a robust .324.

Taijuan Walker yielded five runs -- three earned -- in 6 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Cardinals.

It was two-run in six innings until bad luck and worse defense led to three runs in the seventh. Walker ended up with no strikeouts and five walks tonight, though two of those walks were intentional. It was an odd showing for a guy who, throughout his career, hasn't been as good as his K/BB ratios. Walker wasn't involved in the decision tonight, so he's 6-3 with a 3.50 ERA.

Yunel Escobar collected a pair of singles over four at-bats in Tuesday's road loss against the Dodgers.

Escobar provided 40 percent of the hits for the Halos, as Kenta Maeda and two relievers pitched the shutout to get back on track after a rare loss in Monday's series opener. He has four consecutive multi-hit performances, and he has at least two hits in six of his past seven outings.

Eric Young Jr. posted a pair of singles with a strikeout over four strikeouts in Tuesday's loss at Dodger Stadium.

It wasn't all great for EY, as he was caught stealing. The two-hit game was his first since June 14, snapping an ugly 4-for-26 (.154) skid over the past nine outings. He continues to play semi-regularly while Mike Trout (thumb) is on the shelf and he has done a decent job holding down the fort.

Carlos Martinez surrendered two runs in six innings and struck out 10 in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Martinez has been blessed with an easy schedule this year, which has played a role in his 2.88 ERA. Still, he deserves far better than his current 6-6 record. Tonight's quality start was his 12th in 16 starts this year.
Jun 28 - 1:20 AM

Seung-Hwan Oh took his third blown save after giving up David Peralta's ninth-inning homer Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

Oh has given up runs in five of his last seven outings, though this is his first blown save in that span and just his third in 19 chances overall. Really, it hasn't been the same Oh as last year at any point of 2017. Still, there's little reason for the Cardinals to make a change unless the priority is simply to shake things up. Trevor Rosenthal, the fallback to Oh, gave up two runs tonight and has a 4.08 ERA that's higher than Oh's 3.75 mark.
