  • Diamondbacks' Jace Peterson: Makes rare start

    Peterson started at shortstop and went 0-for-3 in Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Giants.

    Peterson, who extended a hitless run to 18 at-bats, made just his fourth start of the season. The lack of opportunities may explain his .045 batting average. At the time of shortstop Geraldo Perdomo's knee injury earlier this month, the lefty-hitting Peterson was in position to fill a strong side of a platoon, but that never materialized. Both Kevin Newman and Blaze Alexander continue to get work against right-handers.

  • Diamondbacks' Logan Allen: Replaces injured starter

    Allen (0-1) was tagged with Thursday's loss, allowing one run on three hits and one walk while striking out three over 4.2 relief innings against the Giants.

    Allen, who had his contract selected Wednesday to serve as a long reliever, was needed immediately. The left-hander entered to begin the third inning in place of starter Ryne Nelson, who had taken a liner off his elbow the inning before. Allen allowed all three hits and his lone run in that inning of work. He then settled in, utilizing a changeup that's been effective for him at Triple-A Reno according to Steve Gilbert of, and he kept Arizona in the game before departing with two outs in the seventh and the Giants leading, 1-0. Nelson may have avoided serious injury -- X-rays came back negative -- but the club will see how he responds Friday before making any decisions. If he's unable to make his next start, scheduled for Tuesday, Allen is a sensible option as a fill-in starter.

  • Diamondbacks' Ryne Nelson: Dealing with bruised elbow

    Nelson exited Thursday's start against the Giants due to a right elbow contusion.

    Nelson took a comebacker to his arm while recording the final out of the second inning and was forced to exit the game. It appears that he's avoided a fracture or other more serious injury, so it remains possible that he's available for his next turn through the rotation.

  • Diamondbacks' Ryne Nelson: Early exit

    Nelson was forced to leave Thursday's start against the Giants after taking a comebacker to his right wrist in the second inning, Jesse Friedman of reports.

    Nelson worked two scoreless innings while allowing two hits before exiting. The nature of the injury is currently unclear, though he'll likely undergo an MRI or X-ray to determine the severity of the damage.

  • Diamondbacks' Blaze Alexander: Heads to bench in series opener

    Alexander is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants.

    Alexander will take a seat for the series opener as the Giants bring ace right-hander Logan Webb to the hill. While the rookie still looks to be the Diamondbacks' preferred option at shortstop while Geraldo Perdomo (knee) is on the shelf, Alexander might have a shorter leash than anticipated while he's experienced some early hiccups defensively. Jace Peterson will cover shortstop Thursday.

  • Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Taking seat Thursday

    Gurriel is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants.

    The Giants are sending ace right-hander Logan Webb to the hill, so it's not a bad time for Arizona to give the right-handed-hitting Gurriel a day off. Jake McCarthy and Randal Grichuk will occupy the corner outfield spots for the Diamondbacks.

  • Diamondbacks' Gabriel Moreno: In Thursday's lineup

    Moreno (thumb) will start at catcher and bat sixth in Thursday's game against the Giants.

    Moreno hadn't started either of the Diamondbacks' previous two games due to a bruised right thumb, but he had been included in the initial lineup Wednesday before being scratched. He ended up appearing as a pinch hitter in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Cubs, and he now looks like he'll be ready to not only hit but also play defense in Thursday's series opener.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Homers again, tallies three hits

    Marte went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and two RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs.

    Marte led off the bottom of the first with a solo home run, jumping on the first pitch he saw from Jordan Wicks to give the Diamondbacks an early 1-0 lead. He then doubled in his next at-bat to lead off the third and singled home a run in the fifth to tie the game at 2-2. The second baseman continues to swing a hot bat and has now recorded at least three hits in back-to-back contests, raising his batting average to .325 in the process. Marte has also homered in two straight games, giving him five long balls in the early campaign.

  • Diamondbacks' Brandon Pfaadt: Takes first loss

    Pfaadt (1-1) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits over seven innings in a loss to the Cubs on Wednesday. He struck out six.

    Pfaadt kept Chicago's offense at bay over the first four innings, allowing just two singles over that stretch. However, he ran into some trouble in the fifth after Nico Hoerner reached base in the leadoff at-bat following a fielding error from Eugenio Suarez. The right-hander would only be charged for one of the two runs that came home in the frame, though he would go on to allow another run in the sixth, this time via a solo homer off the bat of Cody Bellinger. Pfaadt has now allowed at least three runs in each of his last three starts and has also surrendered six or more hits in each of those outings. He's also posted a 17:3 K:BB over that stretch.

  • Diamondbacks' Gabriel Moreno: Enters as pinch hitter

    Moreno (thumb) entered Wednesday's game in the ninth inning as a pinch hitter and went 0-for-1 in a 5-3 loss to the Cubs.

    Moreno was scratched from the lineup the last two games due to the injury. That he pinch hit for his replacement, Tucker Barnhart, and could have entered the game had Arizona tied it up in the ninth, suggests manager Torey Lovullo was comfortable with the thought of Moreno catching. He could rejoin the starting nine Thursday in San Francisco.

  • Diamondbacks' Tucker Barnhart: Makes two straight starts

    Barnhart went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Cubs.

    Barnhart made a second consecutive start in place of Gabriel Moreno (thumb) and had his first extra-base hit of the season. Moreno did enter the game as a pinch hitter for Barnhart in the bottom of the ninth inning, flying out to right field. That suggests Moreno could return to the starting lineup Thursday at San Francisco.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Homers in two straight

    Pederson entered Wednesday's game as a pinch hitter and went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in 5-3 loss to the Cubs.

    Pederson's ninth-inning blast closed the gap but was not enough for a Diamondbacks team that squandered opportunities with runners on base and made three errors. It was the second consecutive game with a home run for Pederson, who has hit safely in four of the last five contests. That stretch includes three of his four extra-base hits for the season. Pederson is slashing .333/.467/.576 over 46 plate appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Sitting against lefty

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

    As usual, the lefty-hitting Pederson finds himself out of the lineup with the opposition bringing a southpaw (Jordan Wicks) to the hill. With Pederson on the bench, Blaze Alexander will serve as Arizona's designated hitter.

  • 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' Gabriel Moreno: Scratched from lineup again

    Moreno (thumb) was scratched from the Diamondbacks' lineup ahead of Wednesday's contest against the Cubs, Alex Weiner of reports.

    Moreno had been slated to rejoin the lineup after not starting in Tuesday's 12-11 extra-inning win due to a right thumb contusion, but he's been scratched for the second day in a row. He entered Tuesday's contest as a defensive replacement, but evidently swinging a bat still remains an issue. Consider the catcher day-to-day for the time being. Tucker Barnhart will once again fill in behind the plate.

  • Diamondbacks' Eduardo Rodriguez: Moved to 60-day IL

    Arizona transferred Rodriguez (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday.

    The transaction was made to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for left-hander Logan Allen, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Reno. Rodriguez is currently shut down after experiencing a setback with his left shoulder last week. He now won't be eligible for activation until May 25, and manager Torey Lovullo said Wednesday that it would likely be sometime in June before the lefty could return, according to Alex Weiner of
