Jake Lamb went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Lamb cranked a two-run home run off Jose Quintana with nobody out in the fifth inning. He has been launching the ball out at a torrid pace this month, having crushed six home runs in his last 10 games alone. The 26-year-old third baseman boasts a .287/.381/.587 triple-slash with 13 homers and 40 RBI through 44 games played.

Fernando Rodney walked one in the ninth inning while recording his 12th save of the season in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Rodney entered proceedings with the Diamondbacks holding an 8-6 lead. While he did ultimately finish up with the save, it was not the cleanest of outings. Both of his first two outs came on hard hit, deep fly balls. With two outs, he then proceeded to walk Melky Cabrera to bring Jose Abreu -- at the time 4-for-4 with a two-run homer -- to the plate as the tying run. He managed to induce a groundout from Abreu to end the game without any run-scoring damage on his line. The veteran closer held a 12.60 ERA at the end of April, but has not surrendered a run in eight May appearances. He is 12-for-14 in save chances overall.

Randall Delgado allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits over four innings in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Delgado had been working solely as a reliever prior to drawing the spot start against the White Sox in place of Taijuan Walker (blister). He pitched well enough in his stead, striking out three and walking one on the afternoon. Leury Garcia cracked a solo homer off him in the second inning and one more run came in on a double play in the fourth, but Delgado otherwise kept the White Sox at bay. He finished his outing having thrown 61 pitches (36 strikes). It remains to be seen whether he will be needed for another start before Walker returns to action.

Yasmany Tomas was scratched from the Diamondbacks' lineup Wednesday due to tightness in his left hip flexor.

Daniel Descalso will start in left field and bat fifth versus White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana. Tomas is day-to-day for now.

Jake Lamb finished 1-for-4 with his 12th home run and a pair of RBI in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Lamb blasted five homers with 21 RBI in the month of April and he has cracked seven home runs with 17 RBI through 19 games in May. He posted 29 clouts with 91 RBI in 523 at-bats across 151 games last season and he is proving this year that was no fluke. Over the past two seasons Lamb has emerged as an outstanding power source across the board in all fantasy formats.
May 24 - 2:11 AM

Chris Herrmann finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Herrmann has homered in three consecutive starts, posting four RBI during the span. While Jeff Mathis is superior defensively, Herrmann's bat is coming alive and he is making it hard for skipper Torey Lovullo to keep the backstop on the bench. He remains a No. 2 fantasy option in NL-only leagues with some power upside.
May 24 - 2:07 AM

Fernando Rodney worked a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's game against the White Sox for his 11th save of the season.

Rodney worked a tidy 12-pitch frame for his seventh consecutive clean appearance of May. After a rough April with a 12.60 ERA and two blown saves he appears to have ironed out his issues and is a perfect 5-for-5 on save chances in May.
May 24 - 2:03 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed three earned runs while scattering eight hits over six innings in a win Tuesday against the White Sox.

The left-hander walked one and struck out five in the 91-pitch quality start. While he has struggled on the road with a 0-3 record and 7.31 ERA in three outing away from home, he is a respectable 4-1 with a 2.63 ERA through seven home starts. The Diamondbacks are also a perfect 6-0 over his past six assignments.
May 24 - 1:59 AM

A.J. Pollock (groin) hit in the cage and ran on an anti-gravity treadmill Tuesday.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo told reporters after the workout that Pollock will not require a minor league rehab assignment, but the center fielder is still probably a week or two away. He's been on the disabled list since May 15 with a Grade 1 right groin strain.
May 23 - 7:06 PM

Archie Bradley turned in another scoreless appearance Monday night against the White Sox.

Bradley relieved Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke with two outs in the top of the ninth inning and induced a groundout from Avisail Garcia to seal Arizona's 5-1 victory. The former top prospect has been excellent in a dynamic relief role for the Diamondbacks this season, with a 1.35 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, and 27/5 K/BB ratio over 13 appearances covering 20 innings.
May 23 - 12:34 AM

Zack Greinke held the White Sox to one run over 8 2/3 innings Monday in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 win.

Greinke nearly had a complete game, but manager Torey Lovullo lifted the right-hander after Jose Abreu doubled with two outs in the top of the ninth. Greinke was brilliant, yielding just four hits and striking out 12 batters against just one walk. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 2.82 ERA and he leads all National League pitchers in strikeouts with 78. A road start against the Brewers is next.
May 23 - 12:28 AM

Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-4 with a home run in the Diamondbacks' defeat of the White Sox on Monday.

Goldschmidt singled and scored on Daniel Descalso's three-run homer in the bottom of the fourth inning before popping Miguel Gonzalez for a solo shot in the bottom of the sixth. The star first baseman is batting .315/.448/.580 with 11 home runs, 35 RBI, 11 stolen bases, and 38 runs scored in 46 games this season for Arizona.
May 23 - 12:22 AM

Daniel Descalso hit a three-run homer in the Diamondbacks' win over the White Sox on Monday.

Descalso opened the game's scoring with his three-run blast off White Sox starter Miguel Gonzalez in the bottom of the fourth inning. He also drew a walk in the victory but is still batting just .194/.333/.388 over 37 games this year. The utilityman carries no fantasy relevance.
May 23 - 12:21 AM

A.J. Pollock (groin) has begun doing some light jogging.

Pollock is making some nice progress, but he obviously won't be ready for activation from the disabled list when first eligible on Thursday. The outfielder is working his way back from a Grade 1 right groin strain.
May 22 - 7:07 PM

Randall Delgado will start Wednesday versus the White Sox.

He's filling in for Taijuan Walker (blister). All 15 of Delgado's appearances this season have come out of the bullpen, but he's thrown three innings of four occasions, including in his previous outing last Friday. It's unclear whether the D'Backs will need him for more than one start.
