  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Goes yard in Sunday's win

    Varsho went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Sunday's 11-7 win over the Tigers.

    Varsho's 1-for-17 performance over his four previous games saw him drop down to seventh in the order. His homer Sunday was his first since June 10, though he picked up three doubles in 12 contests in the interim. The 25-year-old is up to a .239/.303/.417 slash line with 10 homers, 32 RBI, 34 runs scored and four stolen bases across 67 contests. While he's slipped out of the leadoff role, his ability to play in the outfield or behind the dish should keep him in the lineup on a near-daily basis.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Slips down order

    Varsho batted seventh and went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's 6-3 loss to Detroit.

    Varsho batted leadoff in 47 of 66 games played, but he was dropped in the order Saturday while Josh Rojas moved to the top. The former was hitless over 13 at-bats entering the game and batted .171 over the previous 23 contests, which may have played a role in the decision to have him bat seventh. It's unclear if this is a permanent move.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Quick recovery from heel injury

    Varsho was back in the lineup Monday after being held out of Sunday's game, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. He started in right field, batted leadoff, and went 2-for-4 with a run scored in a 4-1 loss to San Diego.

    Varsho sustained a left heel injury during Saturday's game, which was the reason he did not play Sunday's series finale against the Twins. The catcher/outfielder has hit safely in 10 of 12 contests, going 13-for-49 with a home run, three doubles, six RBI, a stolen base and five runs scored.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Retreats to bench Sunday

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

    Varsho will head to the bench for the series finale after he saw his seven-game hitting streak come to an end with an 0-for-3, two-strikeout showing in Saturday's 11-1 loss. Jordan Luplow will enter the outfield as a replacement for Varsho, who sits for the first time since June 8.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Shifts to RF

    Varsho will shift to right field while Alek Thomas remains in center field, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Varsho went 1-for-4 and batted fifth in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Reds.

    Varsho started the season in center field, and had served as a catcher, the position he played in the minor leagues, while Carson Kelly (oblique) was on the injured list. It was during Kelly's absence that the Diamondbacks brought up Thomas, who has shown he deserves to stay in the majors. When Kelly was activated over the weekend, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo considered how best to accommodate both Varsho and Thomas. After using Varsho, who exhibited more-than-capable defense in the outfield, as the DH in two weekend games, the manager decided to shift Varsho to right field. This decision affects Pavin Smith and Jake McCarthy, who had been sharing right field.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Serves as DH again

    Varsho started as the designated hitter and went 1-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 13-1 win over the Phillies.

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo is still figuring out how to align his lineup after catcher Carson Kelly was activated off the IL on Saturday. While Kelly was out, Varsho could start at catcher while prospect Alek Thomas manned center field, which was Varsho's spot to start the season. Now, with both young hitters in need of consistent at-bats in a crowded outfield, Lovullo placed Varsho at DH and Thomas in center in the two games since Kelly's been back. The DH spot helps, but Lovullo needs to find chances for six outfielders.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Role changing

    Varsho will move back to the outfield after the Diamondbacks activated catcher Carson Kelly off the injured list Saturday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Varsho, who opened the season as the starting center fielder, has been filling in at catcher over the last five weeks without Kelly. The injury also created an opportunity to promote outfield prospect Alek Thomas, who has been the primary center fielder since. The challenge now becomes how to fit both Varsho and Thomas in a crowded outfield that also includes David Peralta, Pavin Smith, Jordan Luplow and Jake McCarthy. It worked out Saturday when Varsho served as the designated hitter, but manager Torey Lovullo said Thomas will continue to see regular at-bats and is not sure how the two would fit when both play the outfield. Since Varsho and Thomas are viewed as key pieces for the future, it would appear one of the other four will lose a spot on the roster or have their plate appearances cut back.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Homers in loss

    Varsho went 3-for-4 with a double, a solo homer, three total RBI, two runs scored and a steal in Friday's loss against the Phillies.

    Varsho was involved in four of the Diamondbacks' five runs, but his productive day was not enough to help the team to a win. His home run was his first since May 24, and he's batting just .172 in June after batting .301 in May. Perhaps this is a sign he is turning things around.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Receives Wednesday off

    Varsho is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

    Since he was behind the plate in Tuesday's 14-8 loss and because the Reds are bringing a lefty (Mike Minor) to the hill Wednesday, Varsho will get a day off. Jose Herrera will handle catcher duties in Varsho's stead.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Has lone hit in loss

    Varsho went 1-for-3 and was caught stealing in Monday's 7-0 rain-shortened loss to the Reds.

    He led off the game with a single, which ended up being the Diamondbacks' lone hit off Hunter Greene over seven innings. Varsho was immediately caught attempting to steal second base, the third time he's been nabbed in six tries.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Varsho isn't starting Saturday against the Pirates.

    Varsho started in the last four games and went 1-for-14 with three runs, an RBI, two walks and four strikeouts. Jose Herrera will start behind the plate and bat ninth.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Back behind dish

    Varsho started at catcher and went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and three runs in Tuesday's 8-7 extra-inning win over Atlanta. He was also hit by a pitch.

    This was Varsho's first start behind the plate since suffering a shoulder injury while serving as the designated hitter last Friday. Having him catch indicates the shoulder is no longer a hindrance.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Hitless in return

    Varsho started at designated hitter and went 0-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 6-2 win over Atlanta.

    Varsho returned to the starting lineup after being held out the last two games due to a shoulder injury, although he did pinch hit Sunday. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said the 25-year-old is slated to catch Tuesday, per Jack Sommers of MLB.com.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Returns to lineup

    Varsho (shoulder) is starting Monday's game against Atlanta.

    Varsho was out of the lineup for two consecutive games due to a shoulder injury, but he entered Sunday's game as a pinch hitter and went 0-for-1. The 25-year-old will serve as the designated hitter and lead off during Monday's series opener.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Expected back Monday

    Varsho (shoulder) went 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Varsho was held out of the starting lineup for a second straight game, but a ninth-inning pinch hit appearance is a positive sign. Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told Jose M. Romero of the Arizona Republic that Varsho is expected to be ready to go Monday against Atlanta.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Won't start Sunday

    Varsho (shoulder) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

    Varsho's sore right shoulder will keep him on the bench for the second game in a row after he was initially forced to exit Friday's 6-4 loss on account of the injury. Arizona has thus far opted not to call up another catcher from the minors to serve as Jose Herrera's understudy, suggesting that Varsho is day-to-day and the club is optimistic that he won't require a stint on the 10-day injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Scratched from lineup

    Varsho (shoulder) was scratched from the lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

    The Diamondbacks didn't provide a reason for Versho's removal from the lineup, but it seems likely that his absence is related to the right shoulder soreness that forced him to leave Friday's game against the Dodgers. Pavin Smith will enter the lineup as the designated hitter and bat second.

  • Diamondbacks' Daulton Varsho: Back in action Saturday

    Varsho (shoulder) is starting Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Varsho exited Friday's game against the Dodgers due to right shoulder soreness, but he'll serve as the designated hitter and lead off a day later. He has started nine straight games and has hit .333 with two homers, three doubles, nine runs and five RBI during that time.
