Jean Segura (ribs) went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in his return to the Diamondbacks lineup on Friday.

Segura was forced to make an early exit from Thursday's game due to a cramp under his left rib cage. He's having an outstanding season atop the D'Backs lineup, slashing .319/.367/.496 with 20 homers, 64 RBI and 32 stolen bases.

Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run homer off Edwin Jackson in Arizona's 5-3 win over San Diego on Friday.

The homer gave him a career-high 104 runs scored. With 24 homers and 95 RBI, he's not going to come close to matching his previous bests in those categories (36 HR and 125 RBI in 2013). Still, even in a down season, he's rated as fantasy baseball's No. 1 first baseman.

Braden Shipley yielded three runs in five innings Friday in a no-decision against the Padres.

Shipley's stuff simply isn't what it was a couple of years ago, and he largely failed to impress in his first major league audition this year, going 4-5 with a 5.27 ERA and a 43/28 K/BB ratio over 70 innings. He should be viewed strictly as a fallback for Arizona's 2017 rotation.

Robbie Ray dropped to 8-15 after giving up five runs in 4 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Nationals.

Ray finishes with an 11.25 K/9 IP, which ranks 21st all-time among pitchers to qualify for the ERA title. Unfortunately, he also finishes with a 4.90 ERA, which is the third highest mark ever for a pitcher with 200 strikeouts. Many will look at the strikeouts and label him as a 2017 breakthrough candidate. We're not quite as optimistic; he should be quite a bit better than this, but he doesn't project as a top-of-the-rotation guy.

Jean Segura is dealing with a cramp under his left rib cage.

Segura departed Thursday's game with the ailment. The D'Backs think he's going to be fine, but they'll see how he feels when he reports to the park Friday before knowing whether he'll be in the lineup.

Jean Segura made an early exit from Thursday's game against the Nationals with an apparent injury.

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic says Segura "may have tweaked his side or maybe his back" during his seventh-inning at-bat. There should be an update soon. Segura was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored.

Yasmany Tomas was scratched from the Diamondbacks' lineup Thursday with a stiff neck.

Brandon Drury is in left field and Socrates Brito is now in right field for the afternoon tilt at Nationals Park. Tomas could very well remain limited over the regular season's final weekend.

Chris Owings went 2-for-3 with a run scored and two steals in Wednesday's rain-shortened win over the Nationals.

Owings and leadoff hitter Jean Segura combined to collect five of the Diamondbacks' eight hits on the watery evening. The five-inning game was called following a long delay. With the two steals, Owings has swiped an even 20 on the season. That mark tops the career-best 18 that he notched in 2015.

Shelby Miller pitched well in Wednesday's rain-shortened win over the Nationals, firing five shutout innings.

Miller struck out five and walked one on the evening, scattering five hits over his five innings of work. Under normal weather conditions, he might have been able to pitch into the seventh inning. He had thrown just 74 pitches (52 strikes) over five frames before rain eventually led the game to be called. The Diamondbacks won the shortened contest by a 3-0 score. It has been an up-and-down season for the 25-year-old Miller overall, as he struggled early and was sent down to the minors for a stretch to try to work out some of his kinks midway through the campaign. He finishes out holding a 6.15 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 70/42 K/BB ratio over 101 innings.

Matt Koch held the Nationals to two runs over five innings in a spot start Tuesday.

Koch allowed just a hit by pitch over over his first five innings, but he might have tired in the sixth in yielding a single and walk to start off the frame. He was pulled at that point and the Diamondbacks' bullpen allowed both inherited runners to score in addition to two more runs on top of it. It's unclear whether Koch will get another start on Sunday.
Sep 27 - 10:05 PM

Jean Segura clubbed his 20th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

After slugging a pair of longballs Monday, Segura led off the game Tuesday with another dinger. He continues to extend his career high in home runs in what has been a career year for the Diamondbacks' shortstop.
Sep 27 - 9:55 PM

Archie Bradley coughed up four runs over 3 2/3 frames but escaped with a no-decision in Monday's 14-4 win over the Nationals.

Bradley managed to record five strikeouts, but he gave up six hits and walked four batters, needing a whopping 97 pitches over his 3 2/3 innings. The D'Backs bullpen took it from there and yielded only three baserunners across 5 1/3 scoreless frames the rest of the way. Bradley will conclude his uneven season this weekend versus the Padres.
Sep 26 - 11:55 PM

Jean Segura clubbed a pair of home runs and drove in three in Monday's blowout win over the Nationals.

Segura got the scoring starting for the D'Backs with a solo shot in the fourth and then added a two-run shot in the eighth. He also had a single on the night. A lot of things have gone wrong for Arizona this season, but Segura certainly hasn't been one of them. He's up to a career-high 19 home runs and is just four hits shy of a 200-hit campaign.
Sep 26 - 11:47 PM

Matt Koch will start Tuesday against the Nationals.

Koch has appeared in five games since his call-up earlier this month, but this will be his first start in the majors. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale estimated that he can likely get up to around 75 pitches. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues with this matchup.
Sep 26 - 5:09 PM

Rubby De La Rosa will undergo stem cell treatment on his ailing right elbow.

De La Rosa went the rest and rehab route with his sprained ulnar collateral ligament, but he's still feeling soreness and tightness in his elbow. This appears to be a last-ditch effort to avoid his second Tommy John surgery.
