Yasmani Tomas went 2-for-5 with an RBI double in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

The double was Tomas' fifth of the season and the RBI his 12th. He was batting clean-up in the contest and looked the part, racking up his sixth straight multi-hit game. With the effort, he pushed his season slash to .349/.391/.442 over 86 at-bats. The 23-year-old really looks like he's starting to find his groove and should continue to produce, though cold spells are bound to crop up as pitchers adjust to his game.

Ender Inciarte went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

Inciarte had RBI singles in the second and sixth innings. He also scored a run and struck out once. These kinds of games are becoming commonplace and are helping to boost his .308/.333/.403 line. With just five walks on the year, though, his value almost solely depends on hits, which is rarely a great sign.

Archie Bradley second start off the DL lasted longer than his first, as the pitcher allowed four runs on nine hits over five innings of work in Thursday afternoon's win over the Marlins.

Bradley managed just two innings of work in his first start (against the Phillies) after being hit by a Carlos Gonzalez liner to the head in late April, but he showed a bit more efficiency in Thursday's showdown with the Marlins. The entire thing could have been a fiasco, as Bradley loaded the bases with no outs and a run already in in the very first inning, but he managed to escape the frame allowing just a run-scoring double play and a single. Down 3-1, he pitched without much incident through the rest of his five innings. Overall, he allowed nine hits, struck out four and walked two. Bradley's a talented young pitcher, but until he's able to reign in the runners on base, it's hard to recommend him beyond keeper and NL-only formats. This season, he holds a 4.00 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and a 19/16 K/BB, numbers which he'll take into tough road action against the Cardinals.

Paul Goldschmidt is not in Arizona's lineup Thursday.

It's a rare day of rest for the star first baseman. Mark Trumbo will cover first and David Peralta is in left field. Goldschmidt is just 4-for-24 with two walks on the Diamondbacks' current road trip, but he's capable of busting out of the mini slump at any moment.

Yasmany Tomas is batting cleanup for the Diamondbacks on Thursday afternoon against the Marlins.

Tomas has rattled off five straight multi-hit games, raising his season slash line to .346/.391/.432. The 23-year-old Cuban looks to be getting more comfortable by the day.

Chase Anderson needed only 99 pitches to get through eight innings of one-run ball versus the Marlins, helping the Diamondbacks take a 6-1 victory on Wednesday.

Anderson took the hill in the ninth inning to attempt to finish off the shutout, but allowed a leadoff single, then hit a batter, then allowed another single to load the bases before departing. Reliever Brad Ziegler allowed one of his inherited runners to score as Giancarlo Stanton grounded into a double play. Anderson saw only six batters reach base on the evening on four hits, a walk, and a hit batsman. The right-hander now owns a 2.54 ERA, a 1.03 WHIP, and a 34/13 K/BB ratio in 49 2/3 innings. Anderson will look for more of the same in a road start against the Cardinals in his next start.

David Peralta singled twice and knocked in three runs over five plate appearances in Wednesday's victory against the Marlins.

Peralta knocked in a first-inning run on a ground out, added a sacrifice fly in the seventh, and added more insurance with an RBI single in the ninth. The outfielder maintains a productive .276/.327/.500 batting line with four home runs and 18 RBI.
May 20 - 10:25 PM

A.J. Pollock went 3-for-4 with a walk, four runs scored, and three stolen bases as the Diamondbacks beat the Marlins on Wednesday.

Pollock stole home in the fifth inning when starter David Phelps appeared to have David Peralta picked off at first base. It was quite a productive outing for the outfielder, a night after clubbing a game-winning home run. He's batting .298/.346/.418 with four home runs, 15 RBI, 27 runs scored, and nine stolen bases.
May 20 - 10:23 PM

Diamondbacks first base prospect Daniel Palka whacked two homers Tuesday in a win for High-A Visalia.

This comes one day after Palka needed a home run to hit for the cycle. Palka has hit .556 with five RBI during his four-game hitting streak. A rare combination of speed and power, Palka is third in the California League in homers and sixth in steals. The 23-year-old is taking care of business at High-A and could be in line for a promotion soon.

The Diamondbacks plan to push Patrick Corbin's (elbow) next start in extended spring training back after he struggled in his last outing.

Corbin gave up three runs in five innings Monday and, more importantly, was sitting in the 88-91 mph range rather than the 92-95 mph he had been throwing. General manager Dave Stewart said there's "nothing to be alarmed about" and he's probably right, but this means Corbin won't be back on the original target date of June 4. "This guy is very important to us," Stewart said, "so it's important to be sure we're not putting him in a position to once again hurt himself. If he needs a few extra days in between starts, that's what we're going to give him."
May 20 - 8:50 AM

Jeremy Hellickson allowed two runs in six innings, taking the no-decision in Tuesday's 4-2 win against the Marlins.

Hellickson's only big mistake came in the sixth inning, when Giancarlo Stanton hit a no-doubt two-run home run to tie the game. It was one of only four hits the right-hander gave up on the evening along with one walk and four strikeouts. 2015 hasn't been kind to Hellickson as he sports an ugly 5.52 ERA with a 1.57 WHIP and a 32/16 K/BB ratio in 44 innings. He'll try to stay on track at home versus the Cubs on Sunday.
May 19 - 10:23 PM

Enrique Burgos got the save after holding the Marlins scoreless in the ninth inning in Tuesday's victory.

It wasn't without drama as Burgos issued a one-out walk to Justin Bour and allowed the tying run to reach base when Christian Yelich singled with two outs. The right-hander managed to strike out Michael Morse to finish the contest. Burgos has handled both save situations since Addison Reed was demoted from the closer's role, but manager Chip Hale said he plans to utilize a committee. Burgos' control is worrisome, but if he becomes Hale's favorite, he'll carry fantasy value nevertheless so he may be worth a stash in deeper leagues.
May 19 - 10:16 PM

A.J. Pollock pinch-hit in the eighth inning and slugged a two-run home run which broke a tie and helped the D'Backs beat the Marlins on Tuesday.

Pollock pinch-hit for David Peralta against lefty reliever Mike Dunn. Manager Chip Hale's move paid off, as Pollock's blast broke a 2-2 tie and proved to be the deciding factor in the win. Pollock has four round-trippers on the year along with 15 RBI and a .285/.331/.409 triple-slash line.
May 19 - 10:07 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Tuesday that Jake Lamb (foot) could be ready around June 1.

Lamb has begun hitting in extended spring training games, but he hasn't been cleared to play third base yet. The 24-year-old has been on the disabled list since April 21 with a left foot injury. He was batting .414/.514/.690 with one homer and nine RBI through 10 games.
May 19 - 5:10 PM

Enrique Burgos closed out Monday's 3-2, 13-inning victory over the Marlins with a scoreless inning of work.

It's the first save recorded by any reliever since Addison Reed was demoted from the closer's role. Brad Ziegler and Reed had already been used. Burgos issued a one-out walk to Ichiro Suzuki, but Suzuki was later thrown out attempting to steal second. The other two outs were strikeouts. Burgos has good bat-missing capabilities, but his control needs some work.
