Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Scores three times
Ahmed went 3-for-4 with a double, three runs, two RBI and a walk during Wednesday's 13-7 win at Colorado.
The 30-year-old entered the series against the Rockies with only seven hits, four runs and four RBI all season, but he took advantage of Coors Field and went 7-for-12 with seven runs, four RBI, two stolen bases and a walk in three games. Ahmed still only has a .633 OPS on the season, but it appears he's busted out of the season-opening slump.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' David Peralta: Brings home three runs
Peralta went 2-for-5 with a double, a run and three RBI during Wednesday's 13-7 win over the Rockies.
The 32-year-old came up with the bases loaded and Arizona leading by one during the seventh inning, and he came through with a bases-clearing double to provide some breathing room. Peralta has a .308/.378/.431 slash line with one home run and 14 RBI through 19 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Luke Weaver: Struggles in Colorado
Weaver allowed four runs on six hits and one walk over 3.1 innings during Wednesday's win over the Rockies. He had three strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The 27-year-old gave up only one run through the first three frames, but his afternoon ended during the fourth inning as he was pegged for three more runs. Weaver has an 11.85 ERA and 2.12 WHIP through 13.2 innings (four starts), and he lines up to pitch against the A's early next week, assuming he retains his spot in the rotation.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Drives in four runs
Marte went 3-for-5 with a home run, four RBI and an additional run scored during Wednesday's 13-7 win over the Rockies.

Diamondbacks' Madison Bumgarner: Playing catch Wednesday
Bumgarner (back) is scheduled to play catch Wednesday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Bumgarner struggled in his first several starts this season and was placed on the 10-day injured list with a mid-back strain Monday. However, it's encouraging that he'll be able to resume throwing so soon. If all goes well Wednesday, he could throw a bullpen session Thursday. While working through his injury, the southpaw posted a 9.35 ERA and 1.56 WHIP over 17.1 innings across four starts this season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Sitting out again
Kelly is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies.
On the bench for the fourth time in six games, Kelly seems to have settled into a timeshare at catcher with Stephen Vogt, who gets the nod behind the dish in the series finale. Both backstops are hitting below the Mendoza Line for the season, so expect the distribution of starts between the two to be fairly even until one player clearly separates himself from the other....

Diamondbacks' Starling Marte: Three-hit effort Tuesday
Marte went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Rockies.
All three of Marte's hits were singles, with the biggest one plating the fourth of five runs during the Diamondbacks' ninth-inning comeback that fell just short. The 31-year-old outfielder is slashing .350/.435/.483 with a homer, five RBI, 11 runs scored and two stolen bases in 17 games this season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Lifts first homer
Kelly went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Rockies.
Kelly went deep off Rockies starter Kyle Freeland in the seventh inning. The homer was Kelly's first of the year, and also accounted for his first run scored. He's added four RBI and a .167 batting average in 36 at-bats this year.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Blasts towering solo shot
Walker went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks in Tuesday's 8-7 loss to the Rockies.
Walker opened the scoring with a 450-foot blast off Rockies starter Kyle Freeland in the fourth inning. That was the first homer of the year for Walker, who has added 11 RBI, nine runs scored and a .290 batting average in 17 games.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Takes loss in meltdown
Ginkel (0-1) failed to record an out Tuesday, allowing four runs on three hits and a walk and taking the loss versus the Rockies.
Ginkel was responsible for four of the Rockies' six runs in the eighth inning Tuesday. It's the second time he's allowed four runs in an appearance, after doing the same over two-thirds of an inning Opening Day. The 26-year-old Ginkel has an unsightly 16.20 ERA with six strikeouts in five innings across seven appearances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Takes no-decision against Rockies
Gallen gave up two runs on seven hits and struck out seven in seven innings in a no-decision versus the Rockies on Tuesday.
Gallen was locked in a pitchers' duel with Kyle Freeland for much of the game. The only damage on Gallen's line was a two-run homer from Nolan Arenado in the fourth inning. The right-handed Gallen trimmed his ERA to 2.74 with a 1.17 WHIP and 28 strikeouts in 23 innings this season. Tuesday's outing was the first in which he did not walk a batter. The 25-year-old is expected to face the Padres at home Sunday in his next start.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Sits against southpaw
Calhoun will be on the bench against lefty Kyle Freeland and the Rockies on Tuesday.
The Diamondbacks haven't been platooning Calhoun this season, as he started against two of the first three lefties the team faced, though any off days he does receive will likely come against southpaws. Tim Locastro will be the right fielder Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Alex Young: Possible rotation fill-in
Young is a candidate to fill in for the injured Madison Bumgarner (back), Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
The Diamondbacks placed Bumgarner on the 10-day injured list Monday, and manager Torey Lovullo mentioned the left-handed Young along with right-handers Taylor Clarke and Taylor Widener as possible replacements. The manager said he's not in a hurry to name a replacement, but the Diamondbacks need to have someone in place by Aug. 18 versus Oakland, when Arizona requires a fifth starter. Young was needed for two innings Monday in Colorado, picking up the win in relief. He has a 3.00 ERA with nine strikeouts and two walks over nine frames out of the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Delivers two runs Monday
Walker went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Monday's 12-8 win over Colorado.
Walker's first-inning double snapped an 0-for-10 skid and knocked in the first of two runs he delivered. Prior to that hitless run, Walker had been a consistent producer for a Diamondbacks' offense that has been slow to start. He leads Arizona with eight doubles and has 10 RBI through 16 games....
