Date: Team: Pos:

Jean Segura (hip) is out again Wednesday.

Segura also sat out Sunday and Tuesday with a nagging hip issue. It's thought to be minor. Phil Gosselin will start at second base and bat leadoff for Arizona on Wednesday night against Marlins ace Jose Fernandez.
May 4 - 3:51 PM

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Archie Bradley matched a career-high with 11 strikeouts Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Reno.

He scattered five hits, two runs and two walks over seven innings of work. The 2011 first-round pick has dominated in his five starts for Reno, compiling a 2.45 ERA with an 11.92 K/9 over 25 2/3 innings. Opponents have hit .209 against him during that stretch. Bradley made a spot start for Arizona earlier this year but it didn't go well (4 1/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER against San Francisco on April 18).

Patrick Corbin allowed three runs across 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

The Diamondbacks held a 4-1 lead before Corbin served up a two-run shot to Marcell Ozuna in the sixth inning and was knocked out of the game. The bullpen gave up four more runs the rest of the way. Corbin looked sharp in his first three starts but has scuffled of late with 14 runs allowed in his last three outings. He'll try for better results this weekend in Atlanta.
May 3 - 10:48 PM

Welington Castillo launched a two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

His blast off of Justin Nicolino in the sixth inning put the D'Backs up 4-1 at the time, but the Marlins then exploded for six runs over their final three innings. Castillo also had a single in the game and is now sporting a .293/.344/.585 batting line with seven home runs.
May 3 - 10:32 PM

Jake Lamb is out of Arizona's lineup Tuesday.

He probably would have been sitting anyway with the Marlins throwing left-hander Justin Nicolino, but beat writer Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says Lamb has a minor shoulder issue. It'll be something worth monitoring the rest of the week. Brandon Drury is starting at third base and batting second on Tuesday night.
May 3 - 4:38 PM

Jean Segura is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup on Tuesday due to a hip issue.

It's not considered serious and Segura is hoping to return Wednesday. Phil Gosselin is at second base and Nick Ahmed is at shortstop Tuesday versus the Marlins.
May 3 - 4:29 PM

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Braden Shipley spun six shutout frames Sunday for Triple-A Reno.

Reno didn't score until the 12th inning, forcing Shipley to settle for a no-decision. Shipley was firing on all cylinders Sunday with five strikeouts and only two walks. Both of those free passes came in the sixth inning. 67 of his 104 pitches went for strikes. The right-hander hasn't allowed a run in his last two starts, though he doesn't have a win to show for it.

Brandon Drury homered for the second consecutive game as the Diamondbacks fell to the Rockies on Sunday afternoon in Arizona.

His solo shot came off of Rockies starter Chad Bettis. Drury also singled twice, finishing the day 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored. He has swung a ridiculously hot bat in the first month of the season, slashing .315/.329/.630 with five homers and 11 RBI. With his versatility, he's likely to find his way into the Diamondbacks lineup on a nightly basis and the power he has displayed makes him an interesting mixed league commodity going forward.
May 1 - 8:03 PM

Shelby Miller struggled yet again in Sunday's loss to the Rockies, surrendering three runs on four hits in only 3 2/3 innings of work.

Miller also issued four walks while striking out three. He cruised through the first three innings unscathed, but seemed to lose his release point in the fourth and everything came unglued. He has been comically bad through his first six starts with the Diamondbacks, compiling an 8.49 ERA, 1.97 WHIP and 19/19 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings. He'll look to start turning his season around when he takes on his former club in Atlanta on Saturday.
May 1 - 8:01 PM

Jean Segura is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a day off. Phil Gosselin is at second base and in the leadoff spot. Welington Castillo and Jake Lamb are also on the bench, as the D'Backs have Chris Herrmann at catcher and Brandon Drury at third base.

Brandon Drury temporarily tied the game with a two-run homer in the sixth inning against the Rockies on Saturday, but the Diamondbacks ultimately lost it in the ninth.

Drury is hitting .294/.310/.588 with four homers and 10 RBI, and he has now started seven-consecutive games at four different positions. The top-100 prospect is worth adding in deeper leagues, as he's a sneaky power option with second-base eligibility. It's worth noting, though, that he only has one walk in 71 PA. Patience has never been his forte in the minors, and big-league pitchers have a funny way of exploiting that weakness. His leash won't be too long, either, as the Diamondbacks have plenty of good hitters jockeying for playing time.
May 1 - 12:11 AM

Zack Greinke threw seven strong innings against the Rockies on Saturday night, striking out eight and surrendering just two runs in a no-decision.

Greinke has had a roller-coaster start to his Diamondbacks career, but threw the ball well against a tough opponent. He probably feels hard done by his second run allowed, too, as it came on a jam-shot blooper with two outs in the third. Still, he has 32 strikeouts in 37 2/3 innings this year and will likely see his 5.50 ERA drop closer to his 3.74 FIP as the season progresses. The right-hander has a wonderful matchup looming against the woeful Braves on Friday.
May 1 - 12:05 AM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of LHP Zac Curtis from High-A Visalia.

The D'Backs are scouring all levels of their organization in a search for a dependable left-handed reliever, and the 23-year-old Curtis is the next man up. He posted a 5.23 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 22/5 K/BB ratio over 10 1/3 innings at High-A.
Apr 30 - 3:51 PM

Diamondbacks designated LHP Keith Hessler for assignment.

The 27-year-old hurler just joined the big league club on Monday, but allowed three runs on five hits over his three innings of work. It's unlikely that he'll generate much interest on waivers and should continue to function as organizational bullpen depth.
Apr 30 - 3:48 PM

Robbie Ray was tagged for five runs and four homers in four-plus innings by the Rockies on Friday.

It could have been worse, considering that Ray gave up two walks and three more hits in addition to the four homers. Ray hadn't allowed a single homer through four starts this year and he gave up just nine in 127 2/3 innings last season, so tonight was certainly something of a fluke. Still, he's more of a streamer/spot-starter in mixed leagues than an every-week option.
