Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) was scheduled to play catch Monday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list.

De La Rosa was diagnosed with a stretched ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow earlier this month, which Dr. James Andrews determined did not require Tommy John surgery. The Diamondbacks are hopeful that he'll return at some point in the second half.

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-5 and drove home four runs on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead his club to victory over the Rockies.

Goldschmidt blasted a two-run triple in the fourth inning that increased the D'Backs advantage to 5-1. He later added a two-run single in the sixth that gave them a 7-6 lead, though they would fail to score the remainder of the ballgame. He has certainly picked up the pace offensively after a slow start and is now slashing .301/.436/.522 with 14 homers, 51 RBI and 10 stolen bases.

Patrick Corbin was knocked around in a no-decision against the Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday, giving up six runs on seven hits in only 4 1/3 innings.

Corbin struggled mightily with his command all afternoon, issuing five free passes while striking out just one batter. The southpaw allowed a solo homer to Charlie Blackmon in the third inning, then the big blow of the game came on a grand slam off the bat of Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. He'll carry a disappointing 4.99 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Giants.

Diamondbacks OF prospect Anfernee Grier slugged his first professional home run Saturday in a win for Rookie-level Missoula.

He also contributed an RBI double in the seventh inning as Missoula rolled to a 12-3 win over Billings. Grier can breathe a sigh of relief after going just 1-for-12 with three strikeouts in his first four games. The 20-year-old hit .366 with 12 HR, 41 RBI and 19 steals in 56 games for Auburn this past season. The Diamondbacks chose Grier with the 39th overall pick in this year's draft.

Welington Castillo is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

It's a normal day of rest for Castillo, who has struggled since the beginning of May. Chris Herrmann is catching Sunday.
Jun 26 - 1:49 PM

Michael Bourn went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

Bourn muscled up for his second home run of the season in the seventh inning. He's cooled after his torrid May, as the 33-year-old is now batting .250/.309/.357 with 15 RBI and 15 runs scored in 35 games overall.
Jun 25 - 10:32 PM

Shelby Miller allowed seven runs on 11 hits over six innings in Saturday's loss to the Rockies.

After a promising turn in his first start off the disabled list, Miller fell back to his old struggles Saturday. Two of the Rockies' 11 hits were homers, giving him 12 homers allowed in 12 starts. Of course, part of his issue Saturday could be Coors Field, but he's now 2-7 with a 6.79 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in those 12 starts. Miller will keep searching for some stability Friday against the Giants.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Silvino Bracho from Triple-A Reno.

He'll replace Zack Godley in Arizona's bullpen. Bracho has allowed six runs (five earned) with a 3/5 K/BB ratio over six innings in the majors this season.
Jun 25 - 1:35 PM

Jake Lamb is not in Saturday's lineup versus the Rockies.

He'll sit against left-hander Jorge De La Rosa. Brandon Drury will start at third base and bat seventh.
Jun 25 - 1:34 PM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Zack Godley to Triple-A Reno.

The Diamondbacks intend to add a fresh arm to their bullpen on Saturday. Godley allowed two runs on three hits and a walk over an inning of work on Friday and owns a 4.35 ERA in five appearances with Arizona this season.

Yasmany Tomas drove in four runs with a pair of homers to help the Diamondbacks beat the Rockies 10-9 on Friday.

The Diamondbacks won despite being just the second team in history to use nine pitchers in a nine-inning game that took place prior to the Sept. 1 roster expansion. Tomas finally came up big with multiple men on base; he had never homered and rarely gotten a hit of any kind with two or three bases occupied. The first homer tonight was a three-run shot, and he tied up the game in the ninth with a solo blast. The Diamondbacks went on to take their 10-9 lead when Michael Bourn drove in Jean Segura.
Jun 25 - 1:45 AM

Archie Bradley yielded one run in five innings Friday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

Bradley walked four and threw 94 pitches, so he didn't have any real chance of going deeper. The Diamondbacks went on to use eight relievers to get through the next four innings, yet they won 10-9 anyway. Bradley has a 3.53 ERA in six starts since rejoining the Diamondbacks a month ago, but since he still doesn't have the walks under control, he's not an every-week option in mixed leagues.
Jun 25 - 1:40 AM

Jake Lamb had three hits, three RBI and three errors Friday against the Rockies.

At least the bat mostly made up for the glove. Lamb tripled and doubled in the contest. He's sitting against a lot of left-handers, but he's currently sporting a .943 OPS, making him one of the NL's top hitters to date.
Jun 25 - 1:35 AM

Nick Ahmed (hip) is out of the Diamondbacks' starting lineup again Friday.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said that Ahmed is dealing with "hip issues," but he's expected to return on Saturday. Jean Segura will play shortstop while Phil Gosselin will start at second base.
Jun 24 - 7:36 PM

Diamondbacks recalled INF/OF Brandon Drury from Triple-A Reno.

Drury was sent down earlier this week following a lengthy slump, but he's back now with Socrates Brito (toe) going down. He figures to see a decent amount of playing time, especially versus lefties.
