Diamondbacks' Randall Delgado: Appears fully healthy for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Delgado has recovered from a right elbow injury that forced him to miss the last two-and-a-half months of the 2017 season, Nick Piecoro of azcentral.com reports.

Delgado was able to throw his first bullpen session of the spring Friday and should receive opportunities in high-leverage situations for the club during this upcoming campaign. Prior to going down with a flexor strain, he posted a 3.59 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with a 60:14 K:BB in 62.2 innings of work. Delgado also has the ability to provide a spot start if necessary, although he will likely be utilized as a reliever barring a rash of injuries to the rotation.

Diamondbacks' Jorge De La Rosa: Agrees to deal with Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

De La Rosa signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Friday, which includes an invite to spring training.

De La Rosa appeared in 65 games for Arizona last season, posting a 4.21 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with a 45:21 K:BB over 51.1 innings of relief. He should settle back into a reliable role within the club's bullpen, although he will likely have to work to earn a setup role in 2018. Even if he's able to repeat his numbers from last season, he doesn't have much of an impact at the fantasy level outside of NL-only formats that count holds.

Diamondbacks' Yasmany Tomas: Not assured starting gig in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arizona manager Torey Lovullo suggested Wednesday that Tomas (groin) has been given no assurances that he'll open the season as the Diamondbacks' starting left fielder, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

Tomas currently tops the depth chart in left field, but it's no secret that the Diamondbacks have interest in re-signing free agent J.D. Martinez, who continues to negotiate with the team. Even if Martinez heads elsewhere, the Diamondbacks could explore other corner-outfield options via trade and/or free agency, or look to the versatile Chris Owings to push Tomas for a starting gig. In addition to the Diamondbacks' lack of commitment, Tomas' outlook is further dimmed by his checkered health history -- he missed about two thirds of the 2017 campaign with a core-muscle injury that ultimately required season-ending surgery in August -- and the new installation of a humidor at Chase Field, which is expected to suppress home-run production at the stadium relative to previous years.

Diamondbacks' Zack Godley: Humidor planned for Chase Field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Godley's home park in Arizona will install a humidor for this season which could result in a significant drop in home runs, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Baseballs will be stored in the humidor, absorbing water and in turn losing "coefficient of restitution," or bounciness. Alan Nathan, physics professor at the University of Illinois, suggested that the humidor should result in 50-to-80 fewer home runs per year at Chase Field, at least. Godley is a heavy groundball pitcher (55.3 percent last year), and with the humidor now confirmed, look for his home HR/9 to align more closely with his road HR/9 moving forward (0.68 last season).

Diamondbacks' Patrick Corbin: Humidor coming to Chase Field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Corbin's home park in Arizona will install a humidor for this season which could result in a significant drop in home runs, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

General manager Mike Hazen made the announcement late Tuesday, ending months of speculation. The humidor is expected to reduce the number of hard-hit balls in Chase Field, with some suggesting the number of homers there could fall by 25-50 percent. Corbin actually had far more trouble with the long ball on the road (19 homers in 86.2 innings) than at home (seven in 103 innings) last season, but this is still a positive for him, as it boosts his chances for continued success in Arizona, assuming he's still there Opening Day. The lefty will look to build on last season's rebound before hitting the open market next winter.
