Cody Ross (calf) had a pinch-hit single Monday against the Tigers.

Ross left Saturday's game due to tightness in his left calf, but apparently he's feeling improvement. He should be able to return to the lineup soon.

Vidal Nuno yielded three runs on seven hits over just 4 2/3 innings Monday in a no-decision against the Tigers.

Nuno was lucky it wasn't worse. He gave up two homers, accounting for all three runs on his ledger, but managed to strand runners in every inning except the first (reliever Randall Delgado cleaned up Nuno's two-runner mess in the fifth inning). The newly-acquired left-hander posted a 4.78 ERA across 98 innings the last two seasons for the Yankees, and has looked much the same in three starts in the desert, though he has a fluky 3.78 ERA to show for it. The 26-year-old Nuno takes the mound in Philadelphia this weekend.

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Tigers have inquired on the availability of Brad Ziegler, but the Diamondbacks are "inclined to keep him."

Ziegler is making a reasonable $4.5 million this season, is owed $5 million in 2015 and the D'Backs have a $5.5 million option on him for 2016, so they don't feel obligated to deal the reliever even though they're out of contention. The Tigers are searching far and wide for relief help, with Joaquin Benoit and Joakim Soria also on their wish list.

Addison Reed enjoyed a 1-2-3 ninth inning en route to his 23rd save as the Diamondbacks eked out a win over the Cubs on Sunday.

1-2-3 innings have been few and far between for Reed this season, his first with the D'Backs. Sunday's outing leaves him 23-for-28 in save chances with a 4.08 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a 44/10 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings.

Josh Collmenter stifled the Cubs en route to a win on Sunday, allowing only one run over seven frames.

Collmenter outdueled Jake Arrieta, holding the Cubs to four hits and a walk while striking out four. Not much has gone right for Arizona this season, but Collmenter certainly has. He has allowed one run or fewer in three out of his last four starts and now owns a 3.64 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 69/29 K/BB ratio. The right-hander will try to keep it going when he takes on the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park over the weekend.
Jul 20 - 7:13 PM

Diamondbacks prospect right-hander Archie Bradley struck out 10 over seven innings for Double-A Mobile on Saturday, scattering two hits and one walk while allowing two runs.

Bradley had his first dominating performance of the season, and could be nearing a return to Triple-A Reno, or Arizona if the Diamondbacks front office wants to keep him out of the PCL and thinks he's ready for the bright lights of the majors. Despite his struggles and an injury, Bradley has remained one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, and has the potential to be a true ace at the top of Arizona's pitching rotation.

Chris Owings (shoulder) will be shut down for three days after a visit with the Diamondbacks' team doctor on Friday.

Owings' bruised left shoulder is getting better but has come along more slowly than expected. "We're just trying to get him kind of over the hump," manager Kirk Gibson said. "He's getting close." Owings is likely to remain out for the remainder of this month.
Jul 20 - 9:14 AM

Paul Goldschmidt went 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBI in Saturday's 9-3 rout of the Cubs.

Goldschmidt walked in the first inning, singled in the third, walked again in the fifth, doubled in the sixth, and then slugged a two-run shot in the eighth -- finishing the evening with three runs scored. The first baseman boasts a .314/.408/.570 batting line, 18 home runs, and 65 RBI in 97 games this season.
Jul 19 - 11:15 PM

Cody Ross left Saturday's game versus the Cubs because of tightness in his left calf.

Ross was 1-for-1 with a single to center field before departing in the fifth inning. Gerardo Parra replaced him in right field. Ross is considered day-to-day for now.
Jul 19 - 9:31 PM

Addison Reed protected a one-run lead in the ninth for his 22nd save as the Diamondbacks topped the Cubs 5-4 on Friday.

Two in a row for Reed after he blew three of his previous six chances. If he can put up another zero next time out, it'll be the first time he's gone three straight appearances without allowing a run since May 17-June 1, when he went six in a row.
Jul 19 - 1:13 AM

Trevor Cahill yielded three runs in five innings Friday against the Cubs in his return to the Diamondbacks rotation.

Cahill allowed four hits and two walks. Unfortunately, one of the walks and three of the hits came in the fourth, leading to a three-run inning. Still, it wasn't a disastrous outing. He'll get to make at least a couple of more starts before his status is reevaluated.
Jul 19 - 1:09 AM

Martin Prado was ejected from Friday's game in the eighth inning for arguing balls and strikes.

Prado was run by home plate ump Cory Blaser after passing by him on his way to the dugout following a groundout. Kirk Gibson came out to defend his player and was tossed as well.
Jul 19 - 12:38 AM

Chris Owings (shoulder) could be a couple weeks away from a return.

Owings is eligible to be activated now, but his bruised left shoulder is healing more slowly than expected. The shortstop has taken some dry swings but has yet to face live pitching since being placed on the disabled list. He's hitting .277/.313/.458 with six homers, 21 RBI and seven steals across 72 games for the D'Backs this season.
Jul 17 - 8:11 PM

Bronson Arroyo underwent successful Tommy John surgery on Tuesday.

The operation was performed by Drs. Michael Lee and Don Sheridan. Arroyo, who is in the first year of a two-year, $19 million contract, will be sidelined until the second half of the 2015 campaign.
Jul 15 - 10:01 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Trevor Cahill from Triple-A Reno.

Cahill was roughed up in his final start with Reno on Saturday, yielding four earned runs on five walks and five hits over just four innings. The right-hander is not a good fantasy bet for the second half of the 2014 season. He'll start Friday night at home against the Cubs.
