Diamondbacks transferred C Tuffy Gosewisch to the 60-day disabled list.

Gosewisch suffered a torn ACL in late May and is out for the season. Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Oscar Hernandez will handle the catching duties with Gosewisch sidelined.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Matt Stites to Triple-A Reno.

Stites' stint with Arizona was short and sweet. He allowed one hit over two scoreless outings, throwing a combined 18 pitches in 1 1/3 innings. The 25-year-old right-hander missed the first two months of the season with a strained right flexor tendon. He'll be back with Arizona as soon as a roster spot opens up.
Jul 4 - 7:34 PM

Diamondbacks optioned 1B/OF Danny Dorn to Triple-A Reno.

The D'Backs needed to clear space for Patrick Corbin and Oscar Hernandez, who are both coming off the 60-day DL. Dorn has just five hits in 29 at-bats for the big club this year. He'll get another shot when the rosters expand in September, if not sooner.

Diamondbacks activated LHP Patrick Corbin (elbow) from the 60-day disabled list.

Corbin didn't pitch past the sixth inning in any of his rehab starts and we wouldn't expect him to Saturday against the Rockies. The 25-year-old was an All-Star in 2013 but struggled down the stretch with a 5.19 ERA over his last 13 starts. Fantasy owners should use a wait and see approach with the young left-hander.

Diamondbacks activated C Oscar Hernandez (hand) from the 60-day disabled list.

Hernandez sat out three months with a broken hamate bone in his left hand. Manager Chip Hale said he'll "pick his spots" when inserting Hernandez into the lineup. He'll backup Jarrod Saltalamacchia Saturday against the Rockies.
Jul 4 - 7:16 PM

Cliff Pennington delivered a game-tying single in the sixth and a game-ending sac fly in the 10th as the Diamondbacks topped the Rockies 4-3 on Friday.

Pennington remains a fine utilityman, but the Diamondbacks haven't gotten a ton of use from him this year with Nick Ahmed playing well at short and Aaron Hill acting as the primary fallback at second and third. The runs batted in he collected tonight were just his sixth and seventh of the season, and it was also only his second multihit game.
Jul 4 - 1:58 AM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut on Saturday against the Rockies.

Corbin had been slated for one more rehab start, but the Diamondbacks felt that he looked ready on his rehab assignment so they will bring him back a little early. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, the left-hander put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 rehab innings. Ideally, fantasy owners should give him at least a start or two before sticking him back into their lineup.
Jul 3 - 5:10 PM

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 with a homer and two runs scored in Thursday's 8-1 win versus the Rockies.

Pollock hit his 10th homer of the year off Chris Rusin in the sixth inning. The outfielder has been an unsung fantasy stud so far this year. He's batting .301 and is on pace for 21 homers, 74 RBI, 107 runs and 33 steals. That type of production would threaten for a top-five fantasy outfielder finish.
Jul 3 - 1:13 AM

Yasmany Tomas smacked a two-run double in Thursday's win against the Rockies.

The seventh-inning drive off of Scott Oberg plated A.J. Pollock and Paul Goldschmidt and gave the Diamondbacks a 5-1 lead in the eventual 8-1 victory. The Tomas investment looked like an early flop, but he's slashing a tasty .318/.359/.441 through 220 at-bats. If the power comes and the average doesn't suffer because of it, he's going to be a fantasy star.
Jul 3 - 1:08 AM

Jeremy Hellickson tossed seven innings of one-run ball and struck out six in Thursday's triumph over the Rockies.

He only allowed three hits and didn't walk a batter. Don't look now, but Hell Boy boasts a 27/2 K/BB rate over his last four starts, bagging quality starts in three of them. At long last he can be trusted in NL-only leagues. He gets the Rangers next time around.
Jul 3 - 1:03 AM

Ender Inciarte (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list immediately after the All-Star break.

He has been on the shelf since mid-June with a right hamstring strain. Inciarte had been expected to rejoin the club at some point next week, but they'll give him a few extra days just to be safe. The 24-year-old is hitting .287/.316/.371 with two homers, 21 RBI and nine stolen bases on the season.
Jul 2 - 6:56 PM

Archie Bradley was diagnosed with right shoulder inflammation after getting a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.

In other words, Andrews confirmed the diagnosis of team doctors. The good news is that there's no structural damage, but there's no clear timetable for Bradley's return.
Jul 2 - 5:59 PM

Aaron Hill went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Hill connected for his fourth homer of the season when he launched a Brett Anderson offering into the seats in the sixth inning. He also chipped in with a sacrifice fly in the eighth to push his overall RBI total for the season to an even 20. Hill is a possible candidate for trade as we enter July, though his .224/.284/.333 slashline makes one wonder what, if anything, the Diamondbacks could get in return for the 33-year-old infielder.
Jul 2 - 1:04 AM

Robbie Ray couldn't quite manage a quality start in Wednesday night's loss to the Dodgers, tossing six innings of four-run ball.

Ray struck out six and walked two in the contest. Three of the four runs against him scored in the third inning, when he allowed a pair of RBI doubles and an RBI single. With the loss, the 23-year-old southpaw dropped to 2-4 on the season. Despite Wednesday's relatively unimpressive performance against the Dodgers, Ray's pitched well since returning to the Snakes' starting rotation on June 5 and currently holds a 2.55 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. He'll try to rebound when he faces the Rangers in his next scheduled start.
Jul 2 - 12:47 AM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Patrick Corbin (elbow) could make his season debut Saturday against the Rockies.

Corbin was expected to make a final rehab start Thursday, but the club is holding him back with the idea that he could be needed with the big club sooner. Corbin owns a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 minor league innings as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Corbin is worth owning, if not starting, in all fantasy leagues.
