Injuries
Elbow - Out for the season (Updated - 4/29/17)
News
Miller (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair the torn UCL in right arm, Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports reports.

Miller made his decision after meeting with multiple doctors, though his transfer to the 60-day DL effectively foreshadowed an end to his 2017 season. The 26-year-old was trying to improve upon his dismal 2016 showing, when he posted a 6.15 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP over 20 games in his debut season with Arizona. Instead, he'll undergo the dreaded procedure which will keep him out 12-18 months, meaning he'll be in line for a return late next season, if that. The D-Backs, meanwhile, will have to move on with Zach Godley, or another replacement in the rotation.

News
Tomas went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and an RBI double in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Padres.

Tomas' 384-foot blast to center field in the bottom of the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Diamondbacks a lead that they wouldn't relinquish. The 26-year-old has recorded at least two hits in three of his last four starts to boost his season slash line to .308/.337/.615. All of those marks represent improvements from his breakout 2016 campaign.

News
Iannetta is not in the lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

It will be the fourth time in the last six games that Iannetta takes a seat, serving as further evidence that the veteran has not solidified the primary catcher spot for the D-Backs. Jeff Mathis gets the start Saturday, something that has become a common occurrence in a lineup that has scored 133 runs this season, second-most in the majors.

News
Owings went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo homers and added a stolen base in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Padres.

This is beginning to look like a breakout season for Owings, whose four homers on the campaign already put him two off a career best. The boost in power coupled with Owings' contributions as a base stealer make him a true five-category threat while he maintains a lofty .325 average for the season. Owings has been the beneficiary of a .379 BABIP -- more than 50 points above his career mark -- but even with some expected regression in batting average to come, he's unlikely to be a liability in the category.

News
Lamb belted his fifth homer of the season in the Diamondbacks' 7-6 loss to the Rockies on Saturday.

Colorado starter Tyler Anderson left a 1-0 cutter over the middle of the plate, and Lamb certainly got all of it, slamming the sixth-longest home run ever at Chase Field. The bullpen ultimately blew the lead, but the 26-year-old continues to mash, as he's now hitting .292 with an .888 OPS out of the cleanup spot.

News
Peralta is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rockies.

With southpaw Tyler Anderson on the rubber for Colorado, Peralta will cede his position in right field to Chris Owings. The 29-year-old lefty is off to an excellent start this season, batting .326 with three home runs and seven RBI, and should be back in the lineup Sunday.

News
Drury went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Rockies.

The 24-year-old has been a high-average hitter thus far, but he finally managed to send one over the fence Saturday when Rockies starter Tyler Anderson let a 1-1 changeup get a little too much of the plate. Saturday's performance brings Drury's OPS up to .802, which is 15 points up from last season's final tally.

News
McFarland's contract was selected from Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

McFarland has pitched very well with Reno so far this season, as he's thrown 11 shutout innings over seven games and recorded nine strikeouts. However, his major-league showing with the Orioles was disappointing in 2016. McFarland pitched 24.2 innings across 16 games, during which he posted a 6.93 ERA and 1.74 WHIP.

News
Descalso hit a solo home run -- his first of the season -- in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Padres.

Descalso's positional versatility has allowed him to pick up starts in three of the Diamondbacks' last four games, but he's still not hitting enough to generate much interest outside of NL-only formats. The 30-year-old is slashing a meager .147/.275/.265 over 40 plate appearances on the season.

News
Rodney (1-2) blew the save and took the loss Saturday against the Rockies, giving up three runs on two hits and two walks in an inning of work. He also struck out a pair.

This marks the second consecutive ninth-inning lead that the veteran reliever has squandered. It wasn't as ugly as Wednesday's debacle, but it was close. Rodney seemed to be close to limiting the damage to just two runs, but he proceeded to fire two wild pitches in a single at-bat to hand the game to Colorado. It didn't seem possible, but Saturday's outing raised Rodney's ERA to 12.60, and although he has a lot of experience in the closer's role, an ERA like that doesn't bode well for his chances to stay in the ninth-inning role for much longer.

Goldschmidt recorded three hits in four at-bats and provided three RBI, one run and one stolen base in Wednesday's 8-5 loss to the Padres.

It was a history-making day for the sizzling Goldschmidt, who has terrorized the Padres during the four-game series. He tied a Diamondbacks record by reaching base in nine consecutive plate appearances spanning the last two contests and became the third National League player since the beginning of the 2014 season to record multiple RBI in five consecutive starts. His .459 on-base percentage for the season ranks fifth in the majors among qualifying players.

News
Bradley is a candidate to replace Shelby Miller (elbow) in the Diamondbacks' rotation, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Bradley didn't do too well as a starter during the 2016 season. He made 26 starts and finished the year with a lofty 5.02 ERA and 1.56 WHIP. However, he's been a solid relief option so far this season. Thus far, Bradley has pitched in six games (14.1 innings) and has fanned 17 batters while allowing just two runs.

News
Greinke allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks in six innings of work, but ultimately came away with a no-decision. He also struck out nine batters.

Arizona's ace wasn't as sharp as he's known to be, as each run he gave up came via a solo home run. Despite this, he continued to fan batters and escape jams despite needing 107 pitches to get through six frames. Greinke unfortunately didn't get to pick up the win thanks to a ninth-inning implosion by closer Fernando Rodney. The 33-year-old's ERA still sits at a solid 3.19 mark, and he'll look to improve upon that in his next start Thursday in Washington.

News
Hoover tossed a scoreless inning in relief during Thursday's 6-2 win over the Padres.

Though the Diamondbacks held a four-run lead when Hoover entered the game in the top of the ninth inning, his appearance did bear some resemblance to a save situation and perhaps gave manager Torey Lovullo a glimpse of how the right-hander would perform in such a scenario. In generating three groundball outs in 12 pitches, Hoover seemingly aced the test, and it appears likely that he'll be the leading candidate to close out games in the event that the struggling Fernando Rodney is removed from the role. Rodney has converted 6-of-7 save chances this season, but owns a bloated 11.00 ERA and 2.11 WHIP to go with a 11:5 K:BB ratio over nine innings.

News
Walker (3-1) covered eight innings and struck out 11 batters while giving up two runs on four hits and no walks in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Padres.

It was the best outing of the season for Walker, who overcame a difficult first inning to make life difficult for the San Diego bats the rest of the evening. He retired 12 of the subsequent 13 Padres hitters before surrendering a solo homer to Ryan Schmipf in the seventh inning, and finished the start out on a high note. Walker owns a pedestrian 3.94 ERA over five starts this season, but a 33:7 K:BB and 2.97 FIP over his 29.2 innings suggests that some improvement should be in store for him.

News
Ray (2-1) suffered his first loss of the season Friday against the Rockies, conceding three runs on five hits and three walks over 6.2 innings. He struck out nine batters in the outing.

Ray may have been on the losing side of the ledger, but he turned in his fourth quality start in five turns on the season while continuing to pile up the strikeouts. The lefty has now notched at least six strikeouts in all five starts, but will need to trim down his walk rate and cut out some homers if he hopes to maintain a mid-3.00s ERA for the entire season.

Pollock went 1-for-3 with a pair of steals and a run scored in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Rockies.

It was uncertain how aggressive the Diamondbacks would be on the basepaths with first-year manager Torey Lovullo in charge, but much to the delight of Pollock's fantasy owners, the 29-year-old has had the green light to run all season. Pollock has collected a team-high nine of the Diamondbacks' MLB-leading 30 steals. Barring a dramatic collapse in his on-base percentage, Pollock's running opportunities don't figure to dry up anytime soon.
