Nick Ahmed hit a go-ahead solo homer off Jonathan Broxton in the top of the eighth inning as part of a 7-5 win over the Brewers on Friday.

A.J. Pollock added some insurance one inning later with a two-run blast off Corey Knebel. Ahmed has gone deep three times in his last seven games after failing to hit a home run over his first 35 games this season. The 25-year-old is batting just .214/.277/.325 on the year.

Brad Ziegler allowed a run, but managed to hold on for his third save of the season Friday against the Brewers.

After entering the bottom of the ninth inning with a three-run lead, Ziegler allowed a leadoff double to Gerardo Parra before getting Ryan Braun to ground out. Elian Herrera followed with another ground out to knock in a run, but Ziegler got Aramis Ramirez to fly out to end the ballgame. The sidearmer doesn't miss many bats, so he's not the prototypical closer-type, but he's the best option in Arizona's bullpen right now.
May 30 - 12:15 AM

Rubby De La Rosa gave up four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Friday.

Most of the damage came on the home run ball, as De La Rosa served up a leadoff blast to Carlos Gomez in the first before Adam Lind connected for a two-run shot in the third. De La Rosa struck out four and walked a pair in the no-decision and now has a 4.50 ERA through 10 starts. He's been prone to the home run ball, giving up 10 of them in 64 innings, but his 59/16 K/BB ratio hints at some upside.
May 30 - 12:14 AM

David Peralta went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI, two walks, and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Brewers.

Batting out of the cleanup spot,, Peralta had an RBI double in the first inning and a solo homer in the third. The 27-year-old has quietly been very useful in fantasy leagues this season, batting .258 with five home runs, 24 RBI, and an .812 OPS over 44 games.
May 30 - 12:13 AM

Diamondbacks released INF/OF Kevin Frandsen.

The 33-year-old was hitting .309/.352/.333 with seven RBI in 26 games at Triple-A Reno, but wasn't close to getting a call-up from the Diamondbacks. He'll look to latch on elsewhere to continue his playing career.

Tuffy Gosewisch revealed Friday that he likely has an ACL tear in his left knee.

It sounds like he'll receive at least one more opinion before making a decision on surgery, but it appears his season is likely over. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has taken Gosewisch's spot on the roster and should serve as the Diamondbacks' starting catcher indefinitely.
May 29 - 5:16 PM

Diamondbacks transferred C Oscar Hernandez from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Hernandez is out with a broken left hamate bone and a timetable for his return isn't known.
May 29 - 2:01 PM

Diamondbacks placed C Tuffy Gosewisch on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 28, with a left ACL injury.

Gosewisch injured the knee while trying to beat out an infield single on Wednesday. It's not clear at this point if the ligament will require surgery, but if it does it would obviously knock Gosewisch out for the season. Jarrod Saltalamacchia has taken his spot on the roster.
May 29 - 2:00 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of C Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Triple-A Reno.

Saltalamacchia hit two homers in nine games for Reno but batted just .188/.222/.375 overall. However, with Tuffy Gosewisch (knee) going on the disabled list the Snakes needed another body behind the plate. Salty should get the bulk of the starts while Gosewisch is out and his power makes him worth an add in two-catcher leagues.
May 29 - 1:56 PM

Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports that the Diamondbacks will recall Jarrod Saltalamacchia from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

With Tuffy Gosewish dealing with an injury, recalling the veteran backstop seemed the logical conclusions for the Diamondbacks to make. Fantasy owners expecting him to make an impact should note his uninspiring .188/.222/.375 line with two homers, seven RBI and a 13/2 K/BB ratio in nine games at Triple-A Reno.
May 28 - 9:09 PM

Brad Ziegler took a blown save and a loss after giving up two runs -- one earned -- in the ninth Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Ziegler blew the save immediately, giving up a leadoff homer to Jason Heyward in the ninth. After that came a single, a groundout, an intentional walk, a walk and then what looked like an inning-ending double play ball. It turned out to be the game-winner for the Cardinals since a sliding Peter Bourjos hit catcher Jordan Pacheco's leg as he was making the home-to-first relay, sending the throw into right field. Ziegler should hang on to closing duties for now. It was his first blown save in three tries since he replaced Addison Reed.
May 28 - 12:08 AM

Mark Trumbo hit his eighth homer and walked twice versus the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Trumbo hit two homers in the series against the Cardinals, one of several potential suitors for his services this summer. It wouldn't have seemed like a fit a day ago, but with Matt Adams (quad) out for a few months and perhaps the rest of the season, a power-hitting first baseman -- one better than Mark Reynolds -- might be a need for St. Louis.
May 28 - 12:03 AM

Tuffy Gosewisch will have an MRI taken of his left knee Thursday.

Gosewisch left Wednesday's game with a jammed left knee, and the Diamondbacks want to know the extent of the injury before developing a gameplan. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said the club could make a decision about a possible disabled list stint by Friday.
May 27 - 11:49 PM

Tuffy Gosewisch left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with a jammed left knee.

Gosewisch likely jammed the knee stretching to touch first base while trying to beat out a throw in the sixth inning. A jammed knee doesn't sound terribly serious, but the Diamondbacks should give a clearer outlook for the backstop by Thursday. Jordan Pacheco will likely fill in at catcher if Gosewisch is forced to miss time.
May 27 - 11:04 PM

Tuffy Gosewisch left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent knee injury.

Gosewisch appeared to hurt his left knee trying to beat out a throw to first base. He stayed on the ground beyond first base for a while before leaving with a trainer. Jordan Pacheco replaced Gosewisch, who was 0-for-3 in the game, behind the dish.
