Diamondbacks recalled RHP Shelby Miller from Triple-A Reno.

Miller will return to the Diamondbacks' rotation on Wednesday afternoon in San Francisco after spending the last seven weeks in the minor leagues. The right-hander yielded four earned runs on nine hits over just 4 2/3 innings in his final start with Triple-A Reno and returns to a hideous 7.14 major league ERA. He can't be trusted in standard fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Vicente Campos to Double-A Mobile.

The move clears a 25-man roster spot for Shelby Miller, who will return to the Diamondbacks' rotation on Wednesday afternoon against the Giants. Campos allowed three runs -- two earned -- in 5 2/3 innings out of the Arizona bullpen. He should get another shot in September.

Jean Segura (illness) went 1-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored Tuesday versus the Giants.

He missed Sunday's series finale against the Reds because of a stomach bug. Segura has rejuvenated his fantasy stock in 2016 with a .315/.364/.472 batting line, 12 home runs, 51 RBI, 27 steals, and 80 runs in 124 games.

Welington Castillo went 2-for-4 with a two-run single in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

Castillo came through with a two-run single to cap off a four-run fifth inning against Johnny Cueto. The pair of RBI boosted his season total to 56. He is working to a .278/.334/.449 triple-slash across 344 at-bats and has been swinging a molten stick of late, with multi-hit efforts in six of his last 10 games and nine RBI in his last four.

Zack Greinke handcuffed the Giants in Tuesday's win, yielding just two runs (one earned) on six hits over six innings.

Greinke wasn't mowing them down -- he struck out one on the evening -- but it was an effective outing nonetheless. Brandon Crawford managed a sacrifice fly in the third and Joe Panik an RBI double in the sixth to account for the scoring on Greinke's watch. He will carry a 4.17 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into a road date with the Dodgers next time he takes the mound.
Aug 31 - 1:37 AM

Zack Godley has been moved to the bullpen.

That's how the Diamondbacks will clear a spot for Shelby Miller, who is set to return to the rotation Wednesday against the Giants. Godley, 26, has a 6.71 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in nine starts and seven relief appearances this season at the major league level.

Shelby Miller will return to the Diamondbacks' rotation Wednesday afternoon in San Francisco.

Miller allowed four earned runs on nine hits and a walk over 4 2/3 innings in his final start with Triple-A Reno. He returns to a brutal 7.14 season ERA and can go on being ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Diamondbacks RHP prospect Max Duval fanned six hitters over a career-high eight scoreless innings Sunday in a win for Low-A Kane County.

He held visiting Beloit to four hits while spinning 72 of his 99 pitches for strikes. The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the 25-year-old. Duval has been very well-traveled this year, appearing in games for Kane County, High-A Visalia, Short-Season Hillsboro and even the team's Arizona League affiliate. The results have mostly been solid for Duval, who carries a 3.55 ERA over 14 outings (11 starts) in 2016.

Yasmany Tomas belted his 27th home run of the year on Sunday, powering the Diamondbacks in an 11-2 thrashing of the Reds.

Tomas clubbed his three-run homer in the sixth inning, increasing the D'Backs advantage to 9-2. What's even more impressive, is they did the thrashing without Paul Goldschmidt and Jean Segura in the lineup on Sunday. Tomas finished the afternoon 1-for-2 and is now slashing .264/.309/.517 with the aforementioned 27 homers and 64 RBI.

Archie Bradley logged a quality start in Sunday's victory over the Reds, allowing just two runs on five hits over six innings.

Bradley struck out three and didn't walk a batter in the contest. All of the damage against him came in the second inning, where Brandon Phillips and Scott Schebler blasted solo home runs. Now 5-8 on the season, he'll look to further improve upon a 4.95 ERA and 1.53 WHIP when he takes on the Rockies in Colorado on Sunday.
Aug 28 - 9:57 PM

Paul Goldschmidt is not in the Diamondbacks' lineup Sunday.

It's a rare day off for the slugger. Phil Gosselin is filling in at first base.
Aug 28 - 3:20 PM

Chris Herrmann (hamstring) could return from the disabled list when rosters expand on September 1.

Herrmann has been catching and playing the outfield while on a rehab assignment and hasn't had any setbacks with his hamstring. He could see some playing time in the outfield down the stretch.
Aug 28 - 9:22 AM

Andrew Chafin (shoulder, groin) is expected to be activated from the disabled list not long after rosters expand on September 1.

Chafin has been on the DL since early July with a shoulder issue and encountered a setback on his rehab assignment when he strained his groin. He's been able to throw off a mound in spite of the groin problem, though, and might rejoin the D'Backs bullpen later this week.

Zack Godley was absolutely demolished on Saturday by the Reds, giving up nine earned runs in only two innings of work.

This one got ugly real fast. He gave up a pair of two-run homers in the first inning. In the second he gave up a two-run single followed by a three-run jack. The bruises from this game will take a long time to wear off. His ERA shoots up to 6.71 after 59 innings.
Aug 27 - 11:38 PM

Yasmany Tomas collected one of only four Diamondbacks hits in a beat-down by the Reds on Saturday.

The good news is Tomas was on the field for the whole game in a blowout, which is a strong sign he is fully recovered from his recent back injury. He is batting .263/.308/.510 with 26 home runs and 61 RBI. He has taken large strides this year following a very disappointing rookie season after signing a big-money deal out of Cuba.
