Jean Segura clubbed a pair of home runs and drove in three in Monday's blowout win over the Nationals.

Segura got the scoring starting for the D'Backs with a solo shot in the fourth and then added a two-run shot in the eighth. He also had a single on the night. A lot of things have gone wrong for Arizona this season, but Segura certainly hasn't been one of them. He's up to a career-high 19 home runs and is just four hits shy of a 200-hit campaign.

Matt Koch will start Tuesday against the Nationals.

Koch has appeared in five games since his call-up earlier this month, but this will be his first start in the majors. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale estimated that he can likely get up to around 75 pitches. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues with this matchup.

Rubby De La Rosa will undergo stem cell treatment on his ailing right elbow.

De La Rosa went the rest and rehab route with his sprained ulnar collateral ligament, but he's still feeling soreness and tightness in his elbow. This appears to be a last-ditch effort to avoid his second Tommy John surgery.

Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) will visit with Dr. James Andrews on Monday.

De La Rosa has tried to pitch through a sprained ulnar collateral ligament but is still feeling soreness and tightness in his elbow. He's already had one Tommy John surgery and it's possible he'll require another. De La Rosa is arbitration-eligible for a second time this winter.

A.J. Pollock (groin) told Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale that he thought he was "going to feel much better" when he ran on Friday.

Pollock was hoping to make a late-season return from a strained groin that he suffered a little over two weeks ago, but this little setback should effectively end his campaign. "He wants to get back in there," Hale said, "and obviously we’re not going to let him run the bases or get in a game until he can run 100 percent without pain."

Yasmany Tomas was pulled from Saturday's game against the Orioles for an apparent lack of hustle.

Tomas failed to run hard to first base following a dropped third strike in the fourth inning. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale wouldn't confirm it was the reason he pulled Tomas, nor did he confirm it last year for a similar incident involving Tomas. "It’s between he and I," Hale said. "That’s a personal thing. Yas has played his tail off all year for us. He’s one of the guys on this team I really love. That’s just between he and I."
Sep 25 - 9:43 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Goldy had three of the Diamondbacks' seven hits in the loss, and he scored their lone run in the ninth inning. A strong finish could earn the 29-year-old his fourth consecutive .300-plus season, as he's now hitting .301 (with a .912 OPS) after Saturday's good game. He's having another fantasy MVP-worthy season, hitting 23 homers with 90 RBI, 102 runs scored and 27 stolen bases overall.
Sep 24 - 11:19 PM

Robbie Ray allowed five runs -- four earned -- on six hits over 3 2/3 innings in Saturday's loss to the Orioles.

Ray's struggles continue, as he's now 8-14 with a 4.77 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 31 starts. The southpaw has struck out a whopping 215 batters on the year, but little else has been ideal in his sophomore year as a full-time starter. Ray will get one more start to try to go out on a high note, taking on the Nationals on Thursday.
Sep 24 - 11:07 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale conceded that Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) is unlikely to return this season.

Momentum was building for a comeback in late September but De La Rosa simply ran out of time. Originally slated for Tommy John surgery after tearing his UCL, De La Rosa chose the rehab route instead. It looks like he'll be fine for spring training next season.
Sep 24 - 6:41 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale doesn't expect Zack Greinke (shoulder) to pitch again this season.

Neither do we. Greinke underwent an MRI after battling shoulder stiffness in his last start and there's just not enough time left in the season for him to make a full recovery. Greinke's first year with the Diamondbacks couldn't have gone much worse. The former Cy Young winner recorded an underwhelming 4.37 ERA over 26 starts starts and couldn't stay healthy. Set to turn 33 next month, it looks like Greinke's best days are behind him.
Sep 24 - 5:53 PM

Jake Lamb went 1-for-5 and drove home a run as the Diamondbacks fell to the Orioles in extra innings on Friday.

Lamb got the scoring started in the ballgame with an RBI double in the first inning. While his pace has fallen off a cliff in the second half, he's still having a nice season overall, slashing .248/.327/.513 with 28 long balls and 89 RBI.
Sep 23 - 11:57 PM

Shelby Miller looked outstanding in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, scattering three hits over six scoreless innings.

Miller walked three and struck out three on the evening. He departed in line to earn his third victory of the season, but the D'Backs bullpen was unable to hang on for him. He'll look to carry over this fine effort and finish the season strong when he does battle against the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
Sep 23 - 11:52 PM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Zack Greinke was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Friday after experiencing shoulder stiffness following Wednesday's start.

It sounds as though this could sideline the right-hander for the remainder of the season. His first season in Arizona hasn't gone as planned, compiling a 4.37 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 134/41 K/BB ratio across his 158 2/3 innings. He's in the first year of a massive six-year, $206.5 million deal that he signed last winter.
Sep 23 - 8:26 PM

Paul Goldschmidt homered twice to plate all three Diamondbacks runs in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Padres.

With 23 homers and 90 RBI, Goldschmidt isn't quite tearing it up in the power categories this year. Still, he doesn't always get a lot to hit as by far the biggest threat in the Arizona lineup. It's Goldschmidt, not Joey Votto, currently leading the NL in walks with 106.
Sep 22 - 12:54 AM

Zack Greinke allowed two runs and two hits over six innings in beating the Padres on Wednesday.

Greinke struck out seven, so it seems like another encouraging start. Nevertheless, he did walk four batters for the third straight start. It's a really unexpected development; prior to his four-walk outing Sept. 11, he hadn't walked four in a game since 2014. Greinke stands at 13-7 with a 4.37 ERA.
