Player News - Diamondbacks

Date: Team: Pos:

Yasmany Tomas had a monster day at the dish on Wednesday, blasting a pair of home runs and plating five as the Diamondbacks routed the Brewers 8-1 at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Tomas capped off a five-run uprising off of Brewers starter Jimmy Nelson in the first inning with a three-run shot. He inflicted more damage in the fifth inning, with a two-run homer to chase Nelson from the ballgame. Tomas finished the night 2-for-5, raising his season slash to .262/.305/.477 to go with 17 homers and 42 RBI in what has been a breakout season offensively.

Archie Bradley struck out six over seven innings of one-run ball, defeating the Brewers to earn his fifth victory of the season on Wednesday.

The young right-hander struck out six, walked three and scattered four hits on the night. The only damage against him came on a sacrifice fly by Hernan Perez in his final inning of work. He'll look to carry the momentum over from this fine outing when he takes on the Nationals at home on Monday.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 with two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored Tuesday against the Brewers.

Goldschmidt had RBI singles in the first and seventh innings, giving him 65 RBI on the year. That's good for eighth-most in the National League, and his 14 steals are ninth-best in the league. The most complete fantasy first baseman to come along in years, the 28-year-old Goldschmidt is batting .295/.412/.504 through 98 games.

Patrick Corbin allowed four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Corbin struck out six, a positive, but he also gave up six hits and walked three in his five innings of work. The no-decision means he still hasn't picked up a win this month, and he's just 4-9 through 21 starts overall. Corbin will work on improving his record, as well as his ugly 5.31 ERA and 1.55 WHIP, when he takes on the Dodgers on Sunday.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said he expects David Peralta (back) to return Friday.

Peralta was pulled from a minor league rehab game last week at Triple-A Reno after taking a pitch off the inside of his knee, but he escaped with a bruise. He is 5-for-16 (.313) through five rehab games.
Jul 26 - 6:24 PM

Zack Greinke (oblique) is expected to make an appearance in an Arizona League game on Friday.

Greinke made it through a 40-pitch simulated appearance on Tuesday and should be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment if he wakes up Wednesday feeling fine. He could return to the Diamondbacks after just one minor league outing. The ace right-hander has been sidelined since June 29 because of a left oblique strain.
Jul 26 - 6:22 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said he's hopeful Jake Lamb (hand) can return Friday.

Lamb has been dealing with a bruised left hand. He went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Monday night against the Brewers and is hitless over his last five games. The hope is the 25-year-old third baseman can get back to cranking homers with a bit of rest and rehab.
Jul 26 - 6:18 PM

Diamondbacks 2B prospect Henry Castillo delivered a career-high five RBI Monday in a win for High-A Visalia.

He homered, singled and also plated a run on an RBI groundout. Castillo has done nice work for Visalia this year, hitting .289 with nine homers, six steals and a .459 slugging percentage. The 21-year-old holds a .300 career average in the minor leagues, though he had homered just six times in 721 at-bats prior to this season. Castillo leads the California League with 33 doubles this year.

Braden Shipley's major league debut didn't go well, as he allowed six runs over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Brewers.

Shipley served up a homer to the second batter he faced -- Scooter Gennett -- and wound up allowing three longballs on the night. He also walked four batters and gave up eight hits overall. It was a forgettable major league debut, but Shipley should get another shot this weekend against the Dodgers.
Jul 26 - 12:11 AM

Paul Goldschmidt picked up three hits in five trips to the plate in Monday's loss to the Brewers.

All three of his base knocks were singles. Goldschmidt was scuffling coming into this one with just two hits in his last 16 at-bats, but the three-hit night pushes his season line back to .294/.412/.506.
Jul 26 - 12:04 AM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said after Monday's game that Jake Lamb is dealing with a bruised left hand.

Lamb isn't expected to undergo an MRI, but Hale said that they'll try to give him some rest and treatment. Consider him day-to-day. Lamb went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Monday and is now hitless over his last five games.
Jul 25 - 10:51 PM

Zack Greinke (oblique) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session on Tuesday.

If all goes well, Greinke will throw either a simulated game or a minor league rehab start on Friday. He appears on track for a return in early August. Greinke has been out all month with a left oblique strain.
Jul 25 - 5:38 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Braden Shipley from Triple-A Reno.

Shipley will make his major league debut Monday against the Brewers. The 25-year-old posted a 3.70 ERA and 77/22 K/BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings over 19 starts this season in Triple-A. It's unclear if he'll keep a rotation spot once Zack Greinke (oblique) is ready to return.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Shipley was the 15th overall pick back in the 2013 draft, but hasn't been great at the AAA level with just a 15.5 K% in 119.1 IP on the season. While the Brewers do strike out a ton against RHP (26.3 K%), they are in a nice spot tonight with one of the highest team totals on the slate. All of the bats in the top six of the order are squarely in play, and stacking up any combination of them is a fine GPP move.
Jul 25 - 4:14 PM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Silvino Bracho to Triple-A Reno.

The move clears the way for Braden Shipley on the active roster. Bracho has a 6.75 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 14 2/3 innings in the majors this season. He should be back up again later this summer.
Jul 25 - 4:11 PM

Welington Castillo went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Reds.

Castillo jumped the Diamondbacks to a 5-2 advantage when he launched a three-run homer off Reds starter Brandon Finnegan in the third inning. Snakes starter Zack Godley immediately counteracted that by allowing three runs of his own in the bottom of the frame, but the Diamondbacks eventually came away with the win regardless. For his part, Castillo is slashing .258/.307/.431 with 11 homers and 34 RBI over 260 at-bats. Those numbers aren't mind-melting by any stretch of the imagination, but he offers a nice bit of pop, particularly for a backstop.
