  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Out against lefty

    McCarthy is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    The lefty-hitting McCarthy will retreat to the bench for the series finale with southpaw Jordan Wicks toeing the rubber for Chicago. Randal Grichuk will replace McCarthy in right field.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Swipes first bag of season

    McCarthy went 2-for-3 with an RBI double, a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 5-0 win over the Cardinals.

    McCarthy was involved in a five-run fifth inning for the Diamondbacks, doubling home Joc Pederson before eventually scoring on a base hit from Corbin Carroll. McCarthy wound up reaching on a two-out base knock the following frame and stole second before the inning concluded for his first theft of the year. The 26-year-old is known for his elite base stealing, so it was encouraging to finally see him active on the basepaths after tallying 49 steals in 198 games over the last two seasons. McCarthy is now slashing .276/.300/.379 with four RBI, four runs and a 1:9 BB:K in 30 plate appearances this year.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Sits versus lefty

    McCarthy is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

    Arizona is facing a left-handed starting pitcher (Austin Gomber) for the sixth time in eight games, so the lefty-hitting McCarthy once again finds himself on the bench. McCarthy and the right-handed-hitting Randal Grichuk are expected to form a platoon in right field until Arizona gets Alek Thomas (hamstring) back from the injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Held out of starting lineup

    McCarthy served as a pinch hitter and went 0-for-1 in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta.

    McCarthy had started recently against left-handers, but he was held out Sunday against Atlanta's Chris Sale. That's because the righty-hitting Randal Grichuk was activated from the injured list Friday, and he'll get starts against lefties. Expect McCarthy and Grichuk to platoon in right field until Alek Thomas (hamstring) is ready to return. At that point, Grichuk will likely platoon with Thomas, squeezing McCarthy's playing time.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Two hits, two RBI in loss

    McCarthy started in right field and went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 9-8 loss to Atlanta.

    McCarthy got the start against a lefty and delivered early with an RBI single in the first inning when the Diamondbacks plated six runs. He later delivered another run with a double. Now that Randal Grichuk is off the injured list, McCarthy's opportunities against left-handers may dry up. Grichuk made his season debut Saturday but served as the designated hitter in what was likely a soft re-entry before he gets work in the field. At some point, Alek Thomas (hamstring) will return, which will also cut into McCarthy's playing time.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Back in lineup Friday

    McCarthy started in right field and went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to Atlanta.

    McCarthy returned to the lineup after sitting out Wednesday's game, as Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo gets by without center fielder Alek Thomas -- Corbin Carroll started in center Friday. McCarthy should see action against right-handers while Thomas is unavailable, but the recently activated Randall Grichuk will be in the mix as well, particularly against lefties.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Heads to bench Wednesday

    McCarthy is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

    Though he went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 7-0 win while southpaw Nestor Cortes was on the bump for the Yankees, the lefty-hitting McCarthy will retreat to the bench for the series finale while another southpaw (Carlos Rodon) takes the hill for New York. Jorge Barrosa will replace McCarthy in the outfield, but the latter is still expected to see steady playing time against right-handed pitching while Alek Thomas (hamstring) is on the injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Starts in right field

    McCarthy started in right field and went 2-for-4 in Tuesday's 7-0 win over the Yankees.

    McCarthy was also picked off/caught stealing in the sixth inning. It was the second consecutive start for McCarthy, as the Diamondbacks navigate an injury to Alek Thomas (hamstring). That the start came against a left-hander (Nestor Cortes) is notable, but Corbin Carroll getting his first night off of the season may have played a role in that decision. McCarthy and Jorge Barrosa, who started in center field Tuesday, are expected to get opportunities while Thomas is sidelined.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Scores run in loss

    McCarthy started in right field and went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees.

    McCarthy entered the starting lineup for the injured Alek Thomas (hamstring) and scored on a Ketel Marte sacrifice fly. All three of McCarthy's plate appearances were against right-handers, and he was pinch-hit for by the switch-hitting Jorge Barrosa when southpaw Victor Gonzalez was throwing for New York. McCarthy and Barrosa could platoon while Thomas is sidelined.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Gets start Monday

    McCarthy will start in right field and bat eighth in Monday's game versus the Yankees.

    Alek Thomas (hamstring) is banged up, so McCarthy will get his first start of the season while Corbin Carroll slides over to center. McCarthy went hitless in two plate appearances off the bench in place of Thomas in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rockies.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Fills in off bench

    McCarthy came off the bench and entered Sunday's 5-1 win over the Rockies after Alek Thomas was removed with a hamstring injury. He went 0-for-2 with a strikeout.

    Thomas injured the hamstring while running out a double-play ball in the first inning and was eventually removed after the third inning. McCarthy entered to play right field while Corbin Carroll moved to center. Thomas is expected to be evaluated Monday and may not be available for the Diamondbacks' series opener with the Yankees later that day. McCarthy is the most likely replacement if Thomas isn't available.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: On updated projected roster

    McCarthy was included on the updated projected roster compiled by Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

    McCarthy was not part of Gilbert's initial projection, but Randal Grichuk's lingering ankle injury -- he hasn't played a game yet -- could impact his availability for Opening Day. McCarthy is 8-for-32 with two doubles, a triple, three RBI and two stolen bases over 12 Cactus League contests.
