  • Diamondbacks' Kyle Nelson: Placed on 15-day IL

    Nelson was placed on the 15-day injured list with left shoulder inflammation on Tuesday.

    Nelson will now be sidelined for at least a couple weeks while tending to inflammation in his pitching elbow, which is never good news for a hurler. The 27-year-old had been going through a rough stretch on the mound, surrendering five earned runs over 1.1 innings in his last three appearances. It's unclear if the left-hander's stretch of poor performances had anything to do with potential arm issues or not, but he'll now at least have an opportunity to mentally reset while on the shelf. In a corresponding move, Arizona recalled right-hander Justin Martinez from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

  • Diamondbacks' Justin Martinez: Returns to Arizona

    The Diamondbacks recalled Martinez from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    Martinez appeared in two games with the D-backs before being sent down to Triple-A on Sunday, throwing three scoreless innings while striking out two batters and walking four. He'll give Arizona additional depth in its bullpen as Kyle Nelson (shoulder) lands on the 15-day IL.

  • Diamondbacks' Kristian Robinson: Returns from IL

    Robinson (shoulder) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list by Double-A Amarillo on Tuesday, Sam Dykstra of reports.

    The 23-year-old suffered a right shoulder sprain during spring training but is now ready to make his 2024 debut with Amarillo. Robinson had a brief stint with the affiliate to close last season but spent most of the campaign at Single-A Visalia, where he had a .945 OPS in 43 games.

  • Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: To IL with shoulder injury

    The Diamondbacks placed Castro on the 15-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to April 21, with right shoulder inflammation.

    Castro will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder Wednesday, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports. The reliever was dealing with discomfort for a bit, but it seems to have gradually gotten worse. He surrendered two runs on four hits across one inning during his last appearance Saturday. The 29-year-old is eligible to return May 7 against the Reds. In a corresponding move, Andrew Saalfrank was recalled from Triple-A Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Andrew Saalfrank: Called up Tuesday

    The Diamondbacks recalled Saalfrank from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    The left-hander missed out on Arizona's Opening Day roster but will join the big club Tuesday as Miguel Castro (shoulder) moves to the injured list. Saalfrank made his MLB debut with 10 relief appearances last season and didn't allow an earned run over 10.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Tommy Henry: Recalled ahead of spot start

    The Diamondbacks recalled Henry from Triple-A Reno ahead of his start against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    The 26-year-old was demoted to Reno on April 17 after he posted a 6.87 ERA, 1.80 WHIP and 18:8 K:BB in his first four starts of the season, but he'll rejoin the Diamondbacks for another start Tuesday. Henry could stick in the rotation with a strong performance since Ryne Nelson (elbow) and Merrill Kelly (shoulder) are on the injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Heads to 15-day IL

    The Diamondbacks placed Kelly on the 15-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to April 20, with a right shoulder strain.

    Kelly was diagnosed with a teres major strain of his right shoulder following his initial MRI Sunday. He was scheduled to start Sunday's series finale in San Francisco, but was scratched after experiencing discomfort prior to the game. The Diamondbacks were initially hopeful that the 35-year-old would avoid a 15-day shutdown, but the feeling changed Monday. The starting pitcher will be eligible to return May 5. In a corresponding move, Tommy Henry was recalled from Triple-A Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Sergio Alcantara: Back with Diamondbacks

    The Diamondbacks acquired Alcantara from the Pirates on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations.

    It marks the fifth time Arizona has acquired Alcantara. The veteran infielder will be assigned to Triple-A Reno, where he will give the team added depth with Geraldo Perdomo (knee) on the shelf.

  • Diamondbacks' Blaze Alexander: Out again Tuesday

    Alexander (hamstring) remains out of the lineup for Tuesday's contest in St. Louis.

    Alexander tweaked his right hamstring Sunday and has now missed two straight starts. He was reportedly available off the bench Monday, so it shouldn't be long before he's ready to return to the lineup. However, with a team off day coming Thursday, the Diamondbacks might elect to hold him out until Friday. Kevin Newman will be at shortstop again Tuesday.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Carroll: Day off against left-hander

    Carroll is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game in St. Louis.

    Left-hander Steven Matz is toeing the rubber for the Cardinals, so it's not a bad time to give the left-batting Carroll a day off as he goes through a season-opening slump. Carroll is slashing just .175/.298/.175 over his last 10 games. Jake McCarthy will play center field and Randal Grichuk will be in right Tuesday.

  • Diamondbacks' Joe Jacques: Claimed by Arizona

    The Diamondbacks claimed Jacques off waivers from the Red Sox on Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Reno, Andrew Parker of Beyond the Monster reports.

    Jacques had been designated for assignment after making one appearance this season for Boston. The left-hander holds a career 5.08 ERA, 22:10 K:BB and 63 percent groundball rate over 28.1 innings at the major-league level.

  • Diamondbacks' Kyle Nelson: Allows walk-off homer

    Nelson allowed one run on one hit without retiring a batter in Monday's 5-3 loss to St. Louis.

    Nelson's outing lasted one pitch, a hanging slider that Nolan Gorman sent over the right-center field fence for a walk-off, two-run home run. This was the third consecutive appearance in which Nelson allowed at least one run after he opened the season with 9.1 scoreless innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Ryan Thompson: Takes loss Monday

    Thompson (0-1) was tagged with Monday's loss to the Cardinals, allowing one run on one hit while striking out one over one-plus innings.

    Thompson executed a perfect 1-2-3 eighth inning before giving up a leadoff infield single to open the bottom of the ninth. He was replaced by Kyle Nelson for a lefty-on-lefty matchup, but the at-bat lasted one pitch -- Nolan Gorman tattooed a hanging slider for a walk-off, two-run home run. Thompson has pitched well thus far, posting a 1.86 ERA with four holds through 10 outings (eight scoreless). He'll continue to serve in a setup role for Kevin Ginkel for now, and eventually for Paul Sewald (oblique) when he's ready to return.

  • Diamondbacks' Brandon Pfaadt: Falls short of quality start

    Pfaadt yielded two runs on two hits and three walks over 5.1 innings in a no-decision Monday. He struck out four in the loss against the Cardinals.

    Pfaadt stifled the Cardinals over five shutout innings before a two-run single by Lars Nootbaar knocked him out of the game in the sixth. Since earning a win in his season debut, Pfaadt has allowed 15 earned runs over his last 24 innings. Despite striking out only four batters, he forced 10 whiffs Monday, his second-highest total of the season. Pfaadt will carry a 4.97 ERA into his next outing, which is projected to be in Seattle this weekend.

  • Diamondbacks' Eugenio Suarez: Three hits in loss

    Suarez went 3-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Cardinals.

    Suarez, who logged his first three-hit performance of the season, entered the game on a 3-for-26 (.115) stretch over the last eight games. The two RBI upped his season total to 16, second on the Diamondbacks behind Lourdes Gurriel (21).

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Likely headed for IL

    Kelly (shoulder) is expected to require a stint on the 15-day injured list, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    The D-Backs were initially hopeful that Kelly would be able to avoid a 15-day shutdown, but skipper Torey Lovullo stated after Monday's matchup that the right-hander is "most likely" headed to the IL to rehab from a shoulder strain. Arizona will likely wait until Tuesday to make the move official.

  • Diamondbacks' Tommy Henry: Drawing spot start Tuesday

    Henry will be recalled from Triple-A Reno to start Tuesday's game against the Cardinals, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    The Diamondbacks optioned Henry to Triple-A last Wednesday, so Arizona will have to place a player on the injured list to facilitate the left-hander's return to the 26-man active roster. The southpaw has struggled in his first four appearances of the 2024 campaign, posting a 6.87 ERA and 1.80 WHIP with 18 strikeouts across 18.1 innings, though he'll draw a favorable matchup Tuesday in St. Louis.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Set for rehab assignment

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Monday that Sewald (oblique) will pitch Tuesday with Triple-A Reno, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Sewald sustained a Grade 2 left oblique strain late in spring training, and he started the season on the 15-day IL. He's set to make the next step in his rehab progress when he begins his rehab assignment Tuesday. Sewald will likely need multiple rehab outings before he makes his way back to the majors. Kevin Ginkel has done a fine job filling in as the Diamondbacks' closer, but Sewald should eventually get his old job back.
