Diamondbacks' Kristian Robinson: Off to quick start at Visalia
Robinson is 8-for-26 (.308) with a double, home run, two BRI, three runs and four steals through six games at Single-A Visalia.
The 22-year-old Robinson is playing organized baseball again after missing the last three-and-a-half years due to legal issues. He was a Top 100 prospect back in 2019, and the Diamondbacks believe the pieces are still there, according to Sam Dykstra of MLB.com. Specifically, those pieces are raw power, above-average speed and a strong arm.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Scott McGough: Settling in as setup arm
McGough struck out one over a scoreless and hitless inning to earn a hold in Sunday's 8-5 loss to Atlanta.
McGough did his job in the eighth inning, but closer Miguel Castro let it slip away in the ninth. McGough faltered early in the season, but he's righted himself and back pitching in high-leverage spots. On May 6, the right-hander was 0-3 with three blown saves and a 5.87 ERA over 15.1 innings. In the same number of innings since then, McGough sports a 0.59 ERA with 20 strikeouts with just five hits allowed.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Homers in loss
Marte went 1-for-4 with a walk and two-run home run in Sunday's 8-5 loss to Atlanta.
Marte's two-run home run in the fourth was shaping up to be the game-winning hit, but Atlanta stunned the home team with a grand slam in the ninth to steal the victory. The homer was Marte's ninth in 56 games, which far outpaces the 12 hit over 137 games in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Corbin Carroll: Drills 10th homer
Carroll went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and a walk in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.
Carroll knocked a solo shot as part of Arizona's three-run third frame. The star rookie boosted his slash line to .286/.373/.523 with 10 home runs, 16 steals and 38 runs scored. He's hitting .326 with eight extra-base knocks over his last 12 contests.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Fans six in no-decision
Gallen allowed three runs (two earned) on nine hits and a walk over six innings in Sunday's loss to Atlanta. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.
It wasn't Gallen's sharpest outing as he gave up a season-high nine hits, but he escaped with just two earned runs against him. The 27-year-old also coughed up a homer for the first time since April 4. After a brutal outing against the Pirates, he's given up two or fewer earned runs in three straight starts, resulting in a 2.75 ERA across 78.2 frames. Gallen's next start is projected to be in Detroit.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Miguel Castro: Stumbles in ninth inning
Castro (3-2) allowed four runs on two hits and two walks Sunday. He recorded two outs (one strikeout) while blowing a save chance and taking the loss against Atlanta.
Castro entered the ninth inning with a one-run lead and coughed up a go-ahead grand slam. He was riding a 10.1-inning scoreless streak since May 7 when he gave up a homer and blew a save against Washington. The 28-year-old's ERA spiked to 3.46 with a 23:10 K:BB through 26 frames....

Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Not in Sunday's lineup
Gurriel was removed from the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.
The 29-year-old was initially slated to serve as the designated hitter Sunday, but he was instead a late scratch with Christian Walker cleared to return after sitting out Saturday with food poisoning. Gurriel started the previous nine games and figures to be back in the lineup Tuesday in Washington.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Late add to lineup
Walker (illness) is batting cleanup as the designated hitter Sunday against Atlanta, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.
Walker was initially out of the lineup Sunday for the second straight game due to food poisoning, but he ended up being a late addition to the starting nine. Lourdes Gurriel was pulled from the lineup as a result.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: On bench for second straight
Walker is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
Walker sat out Saturday's 5-2 loss in what was believed to be a rest day, but his absence from the lineup for the second straight day suggests he could be dealing with an injury or illness. Expect Arizona to provide an explanation on the matter later Sunday, but Emmanuel Rivera will fill in for Walker at first base in the series finale.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Gabriel Moreno: Resting Sunday
Moreno is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
Moreno looks to be receiving some routine maintenance in the series finale after drawing starts behind the plate Friday and Saturday. Jose Herrera will catch for starting pitcher Zac Gallen on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Returns to lineup
Rojas started at third base and went 1-for-4 in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta.
The lefty-batting Rojas, who was given Friday off against a right-hander, was back in the lineup Saturday against Atlanta's Spencer Strider. Friday's off day notwithstanding, Rojas remains a regular presence against righties, but his overall production has dropped significantly since mid-April. He's hitting .165 (15-for-91) with a .481 OPS over the last 30 games. For the season, Rojas is batting .237 against right-handed pitching.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Back in lineup
Smith batted leadoff and went 0-for-4 in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta.
Smith was back in the lineup after getting a day off Friday. He was also back at leadoff with Arizona facing right-hander Spencer Strider. The leadoff experiment started a couple of weeks ago and has produced mixed results. Smith is 5-for-30 (.167) with five walks (.286 OBP) in eight games atop the order, but the Diamondbacks have won six of those eight contests.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Evan Longoria: Lifts eighth homer
Longoria went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta.
Longoria got Arizona on the board in the fifth inning with a blast off Spencer Strider. This was Longoria's fifth homer over his last 11 games, but that span dates back to May 9 as he remains in a part-time role. The veteran is batting just .216 on the year, but he has a .505 slugging percentage with eight homers, four doubles, 13 RBI and 15 runs scored through 104 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Ryne Nelson: Struggles against Atlanta
Nelson dropped to 2-3 in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Atlanta, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks with no strikeouts in 4.2 innings.
Nelson's four walks matched his season high, and he needed 98 pitches (64 strikes) to get 14 outs. This was always going to be a tough matchup, and the silver lining is that he didn't get shelled. The 25-year-old is now at a 5.40 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 37:22 K:BB through 61.2 innings through 12 starts this season. Nelson is lined up for a more favorable road start in Detroit his next time out....

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.... See More ... See Less
