Patrick Corbin was shelled for seven earned runs over 3 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday versus the Astros.

Corbin was pulled in the fourth inning after allowing nine hits and two free passes. The big blow was a three-run bomb by George Springer. Corbin did manage three strikeouts. The awful outing spiked Corbin’s season ERA from 4.21 all the way up to 4.96. The 26-year-old lefty will look to regain his form versus the mighty Cubs on Sunday.

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored on Tuesday versus the Astros.

The three hits boosted his batting average to .269, which is 30 points below his career average. Goldschmidt has not quite been the fantasy beast we have witnessed over the last few years, but he is a good bet to be one of the most elite hitters in baseball over the rest of the season.
May 31 - 7:22 PM

Welington Castillo is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Astros.

It's just a routine day of rest. Chris Herrmann will start behind the plate and bat sixth against right-hander Lance McCullers.
May 31 - 12:28 PM

Edwin Escobar's first start in the majors didn't go well, as he was lit up for eight runs -- seven earned -- over just 3 1/3 frames in a loss to the Astros.

The D'Backs surely didn't want to have to turn to Escobar in this one, as his numbers in the upper minors have been rather lackluster. But, with Shelby Miller (finger) and Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) on the shelf, they didn't have many options. There's a good chance Arizona will go with someone else this weekend against the Cubs. If Escobar gets trotted out there again, it will be ugly.
May 30 - 8:23 PM

Jake Lamb belted a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Astros.

Lamb's longball was ultimately inconsequential, as he took Collin McHugh deep with one out in the ninth to cut the Astros' lead to five, which was as close as the D'Backs got. He's sitting regularly against lefties, but Lamb has been very productive in what has mostly been a platoon role, batting .280/.367/.537 with eight homers and 27 RBI.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Edwin Escobar from Triple-A Reno.

He will debut for the Diamondbacks on Monday against the Astros. Escobar posted underwhelming numbers in the minor leagues and should be avoided for fantasy purposes.
May 29 - 8:09 PM

Diamondbacks optioned OF Peter O'Brien to Triple-A Reno.

He was only with the club for a few days as an extra bench bat while the club sorted out their rotation. Fantasy owners will have to wait until there's an opening for everyday at-bats before he'll have any mixed leagues value.
May 29 - 8:05 PM

Archie Bradley pitched into the eighth inning Sunday in the Diamondbacks' 6-3 defeat of the Padres.

Bradley gave up a run in the top of the second on a Christian Bethancourt RBI single, a run in the top of the top of the fifth on an Alexei Ramirez homer, and one more in the top of the eighth on a Wil Myers groundout. But he yielded only four total hits and one walk over 7 1/3 official frames while striking out nine. The former top prospect has been terrific this season at Triple-A Reno and might finally be ready to translate his strong minor league numbers to the major league level. There is legit fantasy upside here.
May 29 - 6:59 PM

Welington Castillo is absent from the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

He's getting a simple day off. Chris Herrmann is catching Archie Bradley. Jake Lamb is also sitting out for the D'Backs, as Phil Gosselin is holding down third base.
May 29 - 12:54 PM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Dominic Leone to Triple-A Reno.

Leone has allowed four runs over three relief innings in the majors this season. He'll return to a 2.16 ERA at Reno.
May 29 - 12:21 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Archie Bradley from Triple-A Reno.

He will start on Sunday against the Padres in place of Shelby Miller (finger). Bradley holds a 6.26 ERA over 10 starts at the major league level, but he's put up a 1.99 ERA with 47 strikeouts over 40 2/3 frames at Reno this season. With Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) also on the shelf, Bradley could stick in the rotation for a while if he pitches well. He's worth a look in deeper formats.
May 29 - 12:19 PM

Paul Goldschmidt got on base four times in Saturday’s 8-7 win over the Padres, going 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a pair of walks.

It was only Goldschmidt’s ninth home run of the year, which somehow seems relatively small, but he has already driven in 30 runs. He also swiped his sixth bag of the year for good measure. The All-Star first baseman is now hitting .250/.413/.453 and remains one of the elite fantasy players in any mixed format.
May 29 - 1:36 AM

Zack Greinke was responsible for four runs in six innings of work in Saturday’s win over the Padres.

Greinke saw his quality start spoiled by a three-run sixth, an inning that featured three doubles and a walk. It marked his fifth start in which he allowed four or more runs. The right-hander had only two of such outings in all of 2015. He now owns a 4.71 ERA with 60 strikeouts in 70 2/3 innings this year and will next face the Astros in an interleague match-up.
May 29 - 1:34 AM

Robbie Ray allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Padres.

The Diamondbacks need Ray to step it up with Shelby Miller and Rubby De La Rosa absent, but here he is 2-4 with a 4.67 ERA. Quite a bit more was expected from him going into the season. He's still fine to own in NL-only leagues, but he's not really even a streaming option in mixed leagues right now.
May 28 - 1:28 AM

Edwin Escobar will start for the Diamondbacks on Monday against the Astros.

It'll be the first big league start for the 24-year-old southpaw. He has been uninspiring in five starts at Triple-A Reno this season, compiling a 4.68 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 17/6 K/BB ratio across 25 innings. He can be safely avoided for fantasy purposes.
