Diamondbacks' David Peralta: Goes deep Saturday
Peralta went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in a n 11-4 victory over Washington on Saturday.
The veteran outfielder belted a 381-foot shot to right field in the sixth inning for his fourth homer of the campaign. Peralta is slashing .281/.342/.489 and has driven in 28 runs on the season, which is tied for ninth most in MLB.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Eduardo Escobar: Goes deep twice, drives in seven
Escobar went 3-for-5 with two home runs, three total runs and seven total RBI in an 11-4 win over Washington on Saturday.
Escobar plated two runs with a single in the first inning, but that was only the beginning of a big night at the plate. He launched a three-run homer to right field in the fourth and a two-run shot in the eighth, helping him tie a career high with seven RBI. Escobar entered the game mired in a 1-for-34 slump and is batting only .213 on the season, but his nine home runs are tied for 13th in the league.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Seth Frankoff: Falls just short of win
Frankoff hurled 4.2 innings against Washington on Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out four.
Frankoff's first appearance of the campaign was also his first big-league start. He tossed only 49 of 90 pitches for strikes and threw two wild pitches but managed to hold the Nationals to only two runs over 4.2 frames. The right-hander could have earned a win thanks to a big performance from Arizona's offense, but he was pulled with two outs in the fifth inning after loading the bases. It remains to be seen if Frankoff will get another start. If he does, it could come on the road against the Dodgers on Thursday.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Chris Devenski: Lands on 60-day IL with UCL sprain
Devenski was placed on the 60-day injured list Saturday with a sprained UCL in his right elbow.
The 30-year-old last pitched Thursday against the Marlins and surrendered two runs on four hits over two-thirds of an inning. Devenski will now be sidelined for at least the next two months while on the 60-day IL, though given it's a UCL injury a longer absence wouldn't be surprising.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Joe Mantiply: Contract selected by Diamondbacks
Mantiply's contract was selected by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Mantiply has thrown eight career innings of relief at the big-league level without much success. He's allowed 12 runs on 13 hits while striking out six and walking eight. Chris Devenski (elbow) landed on the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Kole Calhoun: Shifts to 60-day IL
Calhoun (hamstring) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.
The 33-year-old has been on the injured list since April 28 and was ruled out 6-8 weeks after undergoing a procedure to excise the left semitendinosus tendon in his left hamstring, so the move won't significant affect his recovery timeline. Calhoun will now be eligible to be activated at the tail end of the original timetable in late June.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Yoan Lopez: Rejoins major-league club
Lopez was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Saturday.
The 28-year-old was sent down at the end of April after posting a 6.30 ERA through 11 appearances, but he'll rejoin the Diamondbacks on Saturday. Lopez previously worked in a high-leverage role but is likely to handle lower-leverage duties this time around, at least early on.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Domingo Leyba: Contract selected by Arizona
Leyba had his contract selected by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
The 25-year-old was designated for assignment in November but will rejoin the 40-man roster while Arizona battles through a rash of injuries. Leyba went 7-for-25 with an .807 OPS in his first taste of big-league action during 2019, and he didn't see the field last year.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' J.B. Bukauskas: Out with elbow flexor strain
Bukauskas was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right elbow flexor strain.
The 24-year-old surrendered two runs on four hits over an inning Friday against the Nationals, and he'll now be sidelined by the elbow strain. Bukauskas is eligible to return May 25, but it's unclear if he's expected to be activated after a minimum stay on the shelf.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Out with toe fracture
Kelly was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a tuft fracture in his left great toe.
The 26-year-old was held out of the lineup Saturday for the second game in a row, and apparently his absence is due to an injury. Kelly doesn't have an official timeline for his return, though he'll be eligible to be activated May 25. Stephen Vogt and Daulton Varsho should split catching duties in the meantime for Arizona....

Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Sits again Saturday
Kelly remains on the bench Saturday against the Nationals.
Kelly finds himself on the bench for second game in a row and the third time in four days. There haven't been reports of an injury, but it's odd to reduce the playing time of a fully healthy player who's hitting .338/.491/.613 on the year. Daulton Varsho starts behind the plate for the first time this season in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' David Peralta: Reaches base three times
Peralta went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's 17-2 loss to the Nationals.
Peralta accounted for two of Arizona's four hits on a forgettable night at Chase Field. He's hit in four straight, going 6-for-16 with four extra-base hits during the streak. Peralta also mopped up the final inning on the mound.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Andrew Young: Double, RBI in loss
Young started at second base and went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Friday's 17-2 loss to the Nationals.
Young, who has primarily been used as a pinch hitter, made his second consecutive start at second base. There should be a rotation of players at second after the Diamondbacks placed Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) on the injured list Friday. Young and Josh Rojas will be the top contenders for at-bats at the keystone.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Riley Smith: Overwhelmed in loss
Smith (1-3) suffered the loss against Washington on Friday, allowing eight runs on eight hits and two walks and registering zero strikeouts across three innings.
Smith's outing started ominously when Trea Turner took him deep on the second pitch of the game, and the right-hander's night didn't get much better thereafter. Washington put up a six-spot against him in the first frame and followed with an additional run in both the second and third innings. Smith ended up needing 67 pitches to retire nine batters and gave up as many earned runs as in his previous three starts combined. With the poor outing, his ERA now sits at an unappealing 6.83, and he has only one strikeout over his past seven innings. Injuries in the Arizona rotation have pushed Smith into a starting role, and Friday's rough outing isn't likely to change that. His next start is currently scheduled to come on the road against the Dodgers on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Seth Frankoff: Starting Saturday
Frankoff will start for the Diamondbacks against the Nationals on Saturday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic reports.
Arizona will turn to Frankoff on Saturday and Luke Weaver on Sunday, pushing Madison Bumgarner to the spot vacated by Zac Gallen (forearm). Matt Peacock presumably transitions back to the bullpen. A 27th-round pick by the A's back in 2010, Frankoff has allowed seven runs in 4.2 major-league innings so far in his career, all in relief.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Heath: Returns to majors
Heath was called up by the Diamondbacks on Friday.
Heath hit .192/.276/.231 in 29 plate appearances during his previous stint on the roster, so he'll likely be limited to bench duty. Asdrubal Cabrera (hamstring) hit the injured list in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Nick Ahmed: Out of lineup
Ahmed will be on the bench for Friday's game against the Nationals.
Ahmed owns a .762 OPS over his last 10 games after struggling to a .397 mark over his first 20 contests. Josh Rojas will start in his absence Friday.... See More ... See Less
