Jake Lamb went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Lamb doubled home a run against Astros starter Collin McHugh in the second inning. The Diamondbacks wouldn't score again in the game, though, as they fell by a score of 4-1. For the season, the Snakes' third baseman is hitting .279/.340/.425 with three homers and 24 RBI across 179 at-bats.

Robbie Ray failed to give the Diamondbacks length in Sunday's loss to the Astros, allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings.

Ray avoided the big inning, instead allowing a slow trickle of runs, with one scoring in the second, two scoring in the fourth and a final run coming home in the fifth frame. He struck out five and walked three as he fell to 3-6 on the season. The owner of a 3.01 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and a 63/20 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings, Ray will head home to face the Reds in his next start.

Zack Godley is expected to move into a relief role soon as a way to conserve his innings.

This is Godley first full season as a starter, and he's already thrown 101 1/3 innings after tossing just 55 1/3 frames as a reliever last year. The 25-year-old is likely due for one more start with the big club before Chase Anderson (triceps) returns later this week. "He could be (a reliever) here, maybe he would go to the bullpen in the minor leagues and then come back up sometime in September," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. "But we have to be very careful."

Chase Anderson (triceps) will begin a rehab assignment with the Diamondbacks' rookie-level Arizona League team on Sunday.

He's slated to throw four innings or 60 pitches in what could be his lone rehab outing. Out the last two weeks with right triceps inflammation, Anderson is expected to replace Zack Godley in the rotation when he returns.

Paul Goldschmidt went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

In a season filled with highlights and astronomical numbers, Saturday's loss to the Astros won't be making the cut when Goldschmidt decides what to show his grandchildren. He failed to pick up a hit or walk in the game and couldn't put the ball in play for two of his three at-bats. These things happen--just not very often for Goldy, who is hitting .346/.462/.599 with 22 homers, 77 RBI and 17 steals. The steal number is one off of his personal best for a season.

Jeremy Hellickson was absolutely rocked in Saturday's loss to the Astros, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings.

Many, many things went wrong in this outing for Hellickson, but the proceedings didn't officially burst into flame until the fourth inning. Following a Nick Ahmed fielding error to put runners on first and third, Hellickson proceeded to plunk Colby Rasmus and walk Chris Carter to push across the first run of the inning. The other four runs didn't take much time to develop, as Hank Conger followed the Carter walk with a grand slam. Two more hits followed to drive the Snakes' starter from the contest. Hellickson had pitched very well over his last four starts, but when the dust settled from Saturday's disaster, he held a 4.95 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He continues to hold value in deeper NL-only formats, but that value's limited at this point and could disappear altogether if he turns in another start of this variety.

Jake Lamb is not in the Diamonbacks' starting lineup Saturday against the Astros.

It's a routine day off for Lamb. Aaron Hill will grab the start at third base. Lamb has hit .248 since coming off the disabled list in early June.
Aug 1 - 5:04 PM

A.J. Pollock is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Saturday.

He was forced to leave Friday's game due to tightness in his hamstring, and it sounds as though manager Chip Hale wants to give him an extra day just to be safe. Cliff Pennington is starting in left field and will bat ninth for the D'Backs.

Welington Castillo belted a game-winning solo home run in the 10th inning on Friday, powering the Diamondbacks to a 6-4 victory over the Astros.

Castillo victimized Pat Neshek for the go-ahead blast, which was immediately followed by a solo shot off the bat of teammate Jake Lamb. Castillo finished the night 3-for-5 and scored three runs. He has been a tremendous addition to the Diamondbacks, hitting .293 (34-for-116) with nine homers and 20 RBI in just 36 games.
Aug 1 - 12:04 AM

Rubby De La Rosa struggled in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday, allowing four runs on eight hits over his six frames.

De La Rosa punched out four on the night while walking only one. All of the damage against him came in the fifth inning, highlighted by a three-run blast off the bat of catcher Jason Castro. He'll look to improve upon a 4.59 ERA and 1.29 WHIP when he takes the hill against the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
Aug 1 - 12:00 AM

A.J. Pollock was removed from Friday's game against the Astros due to tightness in his hamstring.

The Diamondbacks are calling his early exit purely precautionary. He's considered day-to-day and should be able to rejoin the Diamondbacks lineup at some point over the weekend.
Jul 31 - 11:24 PM

Welington Castillo blasted a pair of home runs off Felix Hernandez on Wednesday, powering the Diamondbacks to an 8-2 victory over the Mariners in Seattle.

Castillo capped off a four-run uprising in the first inning with a two-run blast, then added a solo shot in the fourth. He finished the afternoon 2-for-3 plus a walk and is now hitting .280 (31-for-111) with eight homers and 19 RBI in 35 games with the Diamondbacks.
Jul 29 - 7:53 PM

Patrick Corbin delivered an impressive outing in Wednesday's victory over the Mariners, fanning six over six innings of one-run ball.

Corbin scattered just three hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on an RBI single by Brad Miller in the fourth inning. Since returning from Tommy John surgery, Corbin has compiled a 3.21 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 28 innings. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues at this point. He'll take on the Nationals his next time out in Washington on Tuesday.
Jul 29 - 7:51 PM

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Carlos Hernandez stretched his scoreless streak to 26 innings Tuesday in a win for Low-A Hillsboro.

He's won each of his last three starts, contributing 25 strikeouts over that span. His last strikeout Tuesday tied Hillsboro's single-season record set by Ben Eckels in 2013. The 21-year-old was selected to play in next week's Pioneer-Northwest League All-Star Game in Spokane, Washington.
Jul 29 - 3:52 PM

Welington Castillo (elbow) is back in the Diamondbacks' lineup Wednesday.

Castillo sat out Tuesday after being hit in the elbow with a pitch Monday, but he's ready to roll now. He's hitting .269/.358/.500 with six homers in 34 games since arriving in Arizona.
