Top Diamondbacks News

  • Diamondbacks' Gabriel Moreno: Three hits in win

    Moreno went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 5-3 win over the Cubs.

    It's an encouraging start to the second half for Moreno after he'd gone just 2-for-17 in six games prior to the All-Star break. The 24-year-old backstop opened the scoring with an RBI single off Justin Steele in the third inning, one of his three hits in the Arizona victory. Overall, Moreno's slashing .251/.336/.374 with four homers, 32 RBI and 30 runs scored across 268 plate appearances this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Locks down 14th save

    Sewald earned the save in Friday's 5-2 win over the Cubs, allowing two hits while striking out a pair in the ninth inning.

    The Cubs got the tying run to the plate after Sewald gave up back-to-back one-out singles. However, he'd rebound to strike out Michael Busch and Seiya Suzuki, closing out the Diamondback's victory for his 14th save of the year. After blowing three straight save opportunities earlier this month, Sewald's now delivered four consecutive scoreless innings while converting his last three save chances. The 34-year-old right-hander sports a 3.22 ERA with a 0.85 WHIP and 22:4 K:BB across 22.1 innings this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Ryne Nelson: Excellent in seventh win

    Nelson (7-6) earned the win Friday over the Cubs, allowing one run on three hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out nine.

    It was an impressive showing out of the All-Star break from Nelson, who blanked the Cubs through his first five innings before allowing a lone run in the sixth while racking up a career-high nine strikeouts. The 26-year-old Nelson has been solid of late, holding opponents to three runs or fewer in each of his last four starts, posting a 2.22 ERA in that span (24.1 innings). Overall, his ERA sits at 4.78 this season with a 1.39 WHIP and 68:22 K:BB across 92.1 innings. Nelson's currently lined up for a road matchup with the Royals in his next outing.

  • Diamondbacks' Eduardo Rodriguez: Nearing live BP

    Rodriguez (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo indicated the left-hander is likely to throw an additional bullpen session after that before progressing to live batting practice. Signed as a free agent in December, Rodriguez has been on the shelf all season due to a strained shoulder, and he'll likely require a multi-start rehab assignment before being cleared for his Arizona debut.

  • Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: On track to face hitters soon

    Kelly (shoulder) is expected to throw two more bullpen sessions before facing hitters, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Kelly is slated to throw off the bump Saturday and is expected to require one additional bullpen session before being cleared to face hitters. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Friday that the right-hander is "feeling really, really good." Kelly is been limited to just four starts this season with a right shoulder strain and will need time to ramp things back up, but the recent reports on his progress have been positive.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Montgomery: On track to return early next week

    Montgomery (knee) is on track to rejoin the Diamondbacks' rotation early next week in Kansas City after completing a three-inning, 56-pitch simulated game Thursday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Montgomery has been shelved since late June with right knee inflammation, but a return is right around the corner. He will skip a rehab assignment, with the Diamondbacks deeming a trio of simulated games enough to get the veteran left-hander ramped back up. Montgomery holds a disappointing 6.44 ERA in 13 starts for Arizona this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: Absent versus left-hander

    Pederson is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Cubs.

    The Cubs are sending southpaw Justin Steele to the hill, so the left-handed hitting Pederson will begin the first game of the second half on the bench. Randal Grichuk will handle designated hitter duties.

  • Diamondbacks' Ryne Nelson: Set to start opener versus Cubs

    Nelson will start Arizona's series opener on the road against the Cubs on Friday, Jesse Friedman of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Nelson will get the ball first as the Diamondbacks come out of the All-Star break, carrying a 4.98 ERA and 6.1 K/9 over 86.2 innings in 17 appearances, including 15 starts, this season. With Jordan Montgomery (knee) returning to the rotation this week and Eduardo Rodriguez (shoulder) and Merrill Kelly (shoulder) on the horizon, Nelson may need to impress in his next few starts to solidify his spot in the team's starting rotation.

  • Diamondbacks' Connor Foley: Scooped by Snakes

    The Diamondbacks have selected Foley with the 164th overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft.

    Foley is a 6-foot-5 righty from Indiana who has touched 99 mph in the past. He sits around 93-95 mph with his fastball as a starter while mixing in average secondary pitches in his slider and changeup. Foley struggles to throw strikes, which could lead to him being moved to the bullpen eventually.

  • Diamondbacks' Tytus Cissell: Falls to Snakes in fourth round

    The Diamondbacks have selected Cissell with the 132nd overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft.

    Cissell is a 6-foot-2 switch-hitting prep shortstop, but he shows a much more comfortable swing from the left side at this stage of his development. He already exhibits solid bat speed and still has the ability to add more strength to his frame, offering hope that he could emerge as an above-average power hitter down the road. Cissell is committed to Missouri, but Arizona may look to lure him away by signing him to an above-slot deal.

  • Diamondbacks' Daniel Eagen: Headed to desert

    The Diamondbacks have selected Eagen with the 102nd overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft.

    Eagen had a slow start to his collegiate career but returned from elbow and shoulder issues to be the Big South Conference Pitcher of the Year with Presbyterian in 2024. The key to his success was a jump in velocity, and his fastball now sits at 93-94 mph. Eagen's best offering is his curveball, and he also finds the strike zone consistently, giving him a safe floor as a reliever even if he can't stick in a pro rotation.

  • Diamondbacks' Ivan Luciano: Potential money-saving pick

    The Diamondbacks have selected Luciano with the 64th overall pick in the 2024 First-Year Player Draft.

    The Diamondbacks had already landed three high-upside position players who could command above-slot bonuses, and with Luciano being ranked by MLB Pipeline as the No. 220 prospect in the class, this could end up being a money-saving pick. The Puerto Rican catcher is a glove-first prospect with minimal power potential.
