  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Heading back to minors

    Herrera will be optioned to Triple-A Reno on Thursday, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    With the D-backs claiming Seby Zavala off waivers from the White Sox on Wednesday, Herrera will be sent back to the minors as the club has decided against carrying three catchers on the active roster. The 26-year-old is slashing just .202/.296/.245 across 113 plate appearances in the majors this year and will likely remain in Triple-A to conclude the season.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Loses work to Moreno

    Herrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

    Herrera had supplanted Carson Kelly as Arizona's No. 1 catcher in early August, but even though Kelly has since been released, Herrera has lost hold of his spot atop the depth chart after Gabriel Moreno was activated from the injured list Aug. 13. He'll sit out for the fifth time in six games while Moreno gets another turn behind the dish.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Sits Sunday, but serving as top catcher

    Herrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

    Though he'll be on the bench for the series finale, Herrera appears to have moved ahead of Carson Kelly on the depth chart at catcher after being called up from Triple-A Reno on July 23 as a replacement for the injured Gabriel Moreno (shoulder). Herrera has started behind the dish in seven of the last 11 games but has mustered a lowly .296 OPS.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Brought up from minors

    The Diamondbacks recalled Herrera from Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

    He'll be back with the big club as a replacement on the 26-man active roster for fellow catcher Gabriel Moreno (shoulder), who was placed on the 10-day injured list. Herrera will likely serve as the primary backup to Carson Kelly for however long Moreno is ultimately sidelined.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Moves down to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Herrera to Triple-A Reno on Monday.

    Herrera broke camp with the Diamondbacks out of spring training as the No. 2 catcher behind Gabriel Moreno while Carson Kelly was shelved with a fractured forearm. Though Moreno has dominated the playing time behind the dish, Herrera has been serviceable when called upon, compiling a .255/.344/.327 slash line over 68 plate appearances. With Kelly returning from the 60-day injured list Monday and ready to handle duties as Moreno's top understudy, the Diamondbacks didn't have room on the active roster for Herrera as a third catcher. The 25-year-old should get the opportunity to play on a more frequent basis in Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Returns to lineup

    Herrera (head) is starting at catcher and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Padres, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Herrera was removed from Wednesday's 14-5 loss to the Cardinals after taking a foul ball off his helmet, but he'll be back in action for Sunday's series finale while No. 1 backstop Gabriel Moreno gets a day off. Starting pitcher Drey Jameson will form a battery with Herrera.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Exits after foul ball to helmet

    Herrera was removed from Wednesday's 14-5 loss to the Cardinals in the bottom of the sixth inning after taking a foul ball off his helmet while he was behind the plate, the Associated Press reports.

    Gabriel Moreno came off the bench to replace Herrera, who went 1-for-3 with a strikeout prior to departing. The Diamondbacks will presumably put Herrera through concussion tests before deciding whether he's available to stay on the active roster as a backup to Moreno or if the team will need to delve into the minor-league ranks to find a new No. 2 catcher.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Behind the dish

    Herrera is starting at catcher and batting ninth for the Diamondbacks in Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    It's the fourth start of the season for the backup catcher. Herrera is off to a 4-for-10 start at the plate.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Swipes bag in win

    Herrera went 2-for-3 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's 11-6 win over the Dodgers.

    Herrera, who made his third start in 10 games, got caught up in the Diamondbacks' aggressiveness on the base paths, as he had one of five successful thefts. He's not known for that behavior, and it was just Herrera's 10th steal over nine seasons in professional ball.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Grabs backup catcher job

    Herrera will be on the Diamondbacks' Opening Day roster, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Carson Kelly's fractured forearm has cleared the path for Gabriel Moreno to open the 2023 season as the primary catcher in Arizona, and for Herrera to back him up. Herrera is considered a strong defender, but the 26-year-old batted just .189/.250/.207 over his first 47 major-league games in 2022.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Healthiest backstop on 40-man

    Herrera could figure into the catching mix for Arizona after Carson Kelly (forearm) was removed from Monday's Cactus League game, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Kelly, projected as Arizona's primary catcher, was hit by a pitch Monday, and the prognosis is pending. He joined presumed backup Gabriel Moreno (hand) on the shelf, although recent reporting suggests it's a minor injury. That leaves Herrera as the healthiest catcher on the 40-man roster. He appeared in 47 games last season, posting a .189/.250/.207 line over 124 plate appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Heads back to minors

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    Herrera owns a .457 OPS at the big-league level this season, so Arizona decided to send him down and replace him on the roster with Cooper Hummel. Herrera was working as the backup catcher behind Carson Kelly, and that role will now likely be filled by Daulton Varsho.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Stuck in No. 2 role

    Herrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

    Herrera had started two of the Diamondbacks' previous three contests, but he's still the team's clear No. 2 catcher on the depth chart behind Carson Kelly, who re-enters the lineup for the series finale. Unless he enters Sunday's contest off the bench, Herrera will finish July with a .150/.261/.150 slash line.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Buried on depth chart

    Herrera remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds.

    Daulton Varsho has been picking up more playing time in the outfield of late, but Carson Kelly's recent return from the 10-day injured list means that Herrera is still stuck in the No. 2 or 3 role at catcher. Herrera will be on the bench Tuesday for the third straight game.

  • Diamondbacks' Jose Herrera: Picks up third straight start

    Herrera will start at catcher and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Reds.

    With the Diamondbacks deploying Daulton Varsho more frequently at designated hitter of late, Herrera has been able to pick up some extra work behind the plate. He'll be making his third consecutive start Monday, coming off a weekend series in Pittsburgh in which he went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts. Though he looks like he'll play more frequently than most No. 2 catchers, Herrera brings more value on the defensive end than he provides with the bat.
