Josh Collmenter painted eight innings of two-run ball but took the loss in Tuesday's 2-1 setback against the Giants.

Collmenter pitched beautifully, but unfortunately he had to lock horns with a dealing Jake Peavy. The right-hander only struck out one, but he didn't walk a batter. He's only four earned runs and 14 hits across 35 2/3 innings in his last five starts, good for a 1.01 ERA. Collmenter (10-8, 3.60 ERA) has a nice matchup on deck with a date versus the Twins in Minnesota.

Chase Anderson will be shut down for the season after Friday's start in Colorado.

He's already thrown 148 1/3 frames between the majors and minors, which is easily a career high. Anderson has been one of the few bright spots for the D'Backs this season, sporting a solid 3.70 ERA and 100/38 K/BB ratio over 109 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old can surely be penciled into a rotation spot for next season.
Sep 16 - 7:21 PM

Andrew Chafin will start on Wednesday against the Giants.

It had been Randall Delgado's slot, but Delgado has returned to the bullpen. Chafin tossed five scoreless innings in a spot start last month but isn't something worth considering in fantasy leagues.

Mark Trumbo hit a grand slam to lead the Diamondbacks past the Giants 6-2 on Monday.

He finished 2-for-5 with five RBI, adding an RBI single in the seventh. The big damage came in the third frame, when Trumbo swatted a Ryan Vogelsong offering over the right field wall to plate Wade Miley, Chris Owings and A.J. Pollock. Trumbo has driven in 10 runs over his last five games. A hot finish would give a nice superficial boost to his disappointing slash line (.239/.303/.389).
Sep 16 - 12:46 AM

Wade Miley held the Giants at bay on Monday, allowing only one run on seven hits across seven innings of a 6-2 win.

Miley struck out four and didn't walk a batter. Miley entered play 0-4 in his previous seven outings, but toting a 2.86 ERA in his last six, so he must have been pretty pleased to receive six runs of support tonight. The left-hander had a shouting match with skipper Kirk Gibson in his last start against the Dodgers, but Miley indicated he was just blowing off steam from a less-than-stellar night. No frustration tonight in improving to 8-11 with a 4.17 ERA. Miley caps a two-week start by traveling to Coors Field on Sunday.
Sep 16 - 12:43 AM

Jake Lamb isn't in the Diamondbacks' lineup for the third straight day Monday due to a quad injury.

It doesn't at this point appear to be a big concern, but it's also not clear when Lamb might be ready to play again. He's hit just .227/.274/.386 in his first 95 plate appearances with the D'Backs but does have three homers. Aaron Hill is at third base Monday.
Sep 15 - 8:35 PM

David Peralta (back) resumed all baseball activities Monday.

Peralta could return to the lineup during the team's September 18-24 road trip. The rookie outfielder has been sidelined with back discomfort since September 5.
Sep 15 - 7:10 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of C Bobby Wilson from Triple-A Reno.

Wilson, 31, batted .267/.324/.341 with three home runs and 38 RBI over 76 games this season in Triple-A. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2012 with the Angels, but will give Arizona an extra catcher over the final two weeks.
Sep 15 - 5:10 PM

Diamondbacks recalled LHP Andrew Chafin from Triple-A Reno.

He'll join the big club now that Reno's season has come to an end. Chafin made a spot-start with the D-Backs in August, but figures to pitch in long relief the rest of the way.
Sep 15 - 5:07 PM

Diamondbacks recalled INF Nick Ahmed from Triple-A Reno.

Reno's season came to an end on Sunday, so Ahmed will rejoin the Diamondbacks. Known for his excellent defense, the 24-year-old hit .228/.254/.316 in 19 games with the big club earlier this year.
Sep 15 - 5:06 PM

Didi Gregorius went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored to lead the Diamondbacks past the Padres 8-6 on Sunday.

Gregorius has now scored twice in back-to-back games. He added an RBI single in the eighth inning. The shortstop has struggled at the dish this year, batting a meager .211/.286/.351 in 69 games this season.
Sep 14 - 10:28 PM

Addison Reed gave up four hits and two runs in a non-save situation against the Padres on Sunday.

Brought in to preserve a four-run lead, Reed instead allowed hits to three of the first four batters he faced. With two runners on and two outs, Cameron Maybin represented the winning run, grounding out to end the game. Reed has allowed runs in two of his last three appearances to raise his ERA to 3.83. Reed has 31 saves in his first year in the desert.
Sep 14 - 10:20 PM

Chris Owings went 2-for-5 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Owings had an RBI single and a run scored in the fifth inning. He also stole his eighth base in the inning. Since coming back from a left shoulder injury, the 23-year-old has struggled, going 9-for-43 (.209) with no extra-base hits. The injury derailed what was a decent rookie campaign.
Sep 14 - 10:16 PM

Trevor Cahill allowed four runs over four innings in a no-decision against the Padres Sunday.

Cahill's line wasn't terrible, but he was wild, throwing two wild pitches and also hit a batter while giving up five hits. His wildness also played to his advantage, as he struck out seven over his four innings. Cahill still hasn't won in a month, and he'll take a 5.38 ERA into a challenging start against the Rockies in Coors Field on Friday.
Sep 14 - 10:00 PM

Mark Trumbo finished 3-for-5 with three RBI as the Diamondbacks beat the Padres 10-4 on Saturday.

Trumbo smacked a two-run single in the first inning and later scored on a wild pitch. He then plated Chris Owings on a fielder's choice in the second and doubled in the fifth before singling and scoring again in the eighth. Trumbo seems to be finding a groove now after struggling initially in his return from a fractured foot.
