  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Newman: Fills in at shortstop

    Newman entered Sunday's 5-3 win over the Giants to play shortstop after Blaze Alexander (hamstring) was removed. Newman went 1-for-2 with a double and RBI.

    Newman, who replaced Alexander to start the bottom of the fifth inning, doubled home what turned out to be the winning run in the top of the ninth. Alexander's injury was described as a cramp, per Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, which doesn't sound too serious The Diamondbacks are limited at shortstop after designating Jace Peterson, leaving Newman or possibly Ketel Marte to fill in if Alexander's unable to play Monday in St. Louis.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Newman: Two hits in loss

    Newman started at shortstop and went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 9-6 loss to the Cardinals.

    Newman made a fourth start over the last five games, once at second base and three times at shortstop, all coming against lefty starters. He'll continue to be part of the mix at short with Blaze Alexander and to a lesser extent, Jace Peterson.

  • Diamondbacks' Kevin Newman: Makes second straight start

    Newman started at shortstop and went 1-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Monday's 7-5 loss to the Rockies.

    Newman started for a second consecutive game after holding down second base in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. Shortstop will be an amalgam of bodies while Geraldo Perdomo (knee) recovers from surgery to repair a torn right meniscus that is expected to keep him out of action for about a month. Blaze Alexander started at short Saturday and Jace Peterson the day prior. It's unclear if this will be a strict platoon moving forward; Arizona faces righty Cal Quantrill on Tuesday, which could favor the left-handed hitting Peterson.

    The Diamondbacks selected Newman's contract from Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

  • Kevin Newman: Parts ways with Arizona

    Newman became a free agent Wednesday after opting out of the minor-league deal with the Diamondbacks, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Rather than reporting to Triple-A Reno after being informed a few days ago that he wouldn't be part of Arizona's Opening Day roster, Newman will head to the open market and pursue opportunities with another organization. The 30-year-old is coming off a 2023 campaign in which he slashed .253/.311/.364 over 253 plate appearances with the Reds while seeing time at all four infield positions.
