  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Adds two more thefts

    McCarthy went 0-for-3 with a walk and two stolen bases in Sunday's 8-5 loss to Atlanta.

    In his second MLB stint of 2023, McCarthy is showing off the same base-stealing skills he did when he got a second chance in 2022. Since returning from Triple-A Reno on May 26, the outfielder has swiped eight bases in nine games. McCarthy, who had a .229 on-base percentage at the time of his demotion to Reno in late April, has a .355 OBP since his recall.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Sitting Saturday

    McCarthy isn't in the Diamondbacks' lineup Saturday against Atlanta.

    McCarthy has bounced back nicely since returning to the big leagues May 26, slashing .320/.370/.360 with two RBI and six stolen bases. He'll be replaced in right field by Pavin Smith on Saturday, allowing Evan Longoria to serve as Arizona's designated hitter.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Adds another steal

    McCarthy went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Rockies.

    McCarthy singled to lead off the second and wasted no time stealing second for his fifth stolen base over the last three games. The 25-year-old has also notched six hits over that same span and has not struck out. He looks much more comfortable at the plate since being called back up from Triple-A Reno and should continue to be a great option for steals if he can continue to find ways to get on base.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Running again

    McCarthy went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Colorado.

    McCarthy's two steals gave him four thefts over the last two games and five since he was recalled from Triple-A Reno. The outfielder, who stole 23 bases in 99 games last season, is 5-for-14 with a walk since rejoining the parent club. He opened the season with an everyday role but was sent down to Reno with a .143 average and .229 OBP. If McCarthy avoids slumps, he'll be a steady supply of steals.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Swipes two bags in victory

    McCarthy went 2-for-3 with a walk, a run, two RBI and two stolen bases against Colorado in a 7-5 win Monday.

    McCarthy was a key catalyst for the offense near the bottom of the order, knocking in Arizona's first two runs in the second inning and swiping second base on two occasions. The speedy outfielder recently returned from a prolonged stint in the minors and had gone 1-for-8 since his return coming into Monday, so the big performance could be a turning point in his season. McCarthy's sprint speed ranks in the 98th percentile in the majors, making him a legitimate threat to steal any time he reaches base.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Claims third straight start

    McCarthy will start in right field and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    McCarthy will man right field for the third game in a row after he went 1-for-5 with a double, a walk and a stolen base between his first two contests since returning from Triple-A Reno. With Dominic Fletcher now back in the minors, McCarthy looks like he'll handle an everyday role in the Arizona outfield. Despite his struggles over 76 plate appearances in the majors this season (.487 OPS), McCarthy makes for an intriguing speculative pickup off the waiver wire due to the stolen-base upside he displayed with Arizona in 2022.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Swipes bag in return to majors

    McCarthy went 0-for-2 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 7-2 loss to the Red Sox.

    McCarthy tore up Triple-A pitching with a .322/.410/.522 slash line, four home runs, four stolen bases, 17 RBI and 17 runs scored in 22 games over the last month. The outfielder could get another look in an everyday role, either in center field or right field, as long as he can continue his strong hitting following his call-up. At the major-league level this year, he has a .138 batting average, .464 OPS, one homer and three steals through 73 plate appearances, so he still has a ways to go to prove himself after regressing from last year's breakout campaign.

  • Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Returning to majors

    The Diamondbacks are planning to recall McCarthy from Triple-A Reno on Friday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    McCarthy was demoted to Reno in late April after hitting just .143 with Arizona to begin the season. He's hit well in the minors since, maintaining a .410 average and .932 OPS while swiping four bags across 22 games. Dominic Fletcher was optioned in a corresponding move, leaving McCarthy as the favorite to be the primary starter in center field.
