Torey Lovullo Named New Arizona Diamondbacks Manager

On Friday, the Arizona Diamondbacks once again took someone from the Boston Red Sox baseball organization when they hired Torey Lovullo as their new manager. Lovullo signed a three-year deal and will be introduced formally on Monday by the club during a news conference.

The two had worked in Boston together as Lovullo was the bench coach for the Red Sox the last four seasons and prior to that, they... 
 

Arizona Diamondbacks Fire General Manager and Manager

Dave Stewart was hired during September of 2014 to replace Kevin Towers as general manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks. A couple of weeks later, the new GM named Chip Hale as the new manager of the D-backs. Both were fired on Monday by the Diamondbacks. In 2015, things went well for Arizona. The Diamondback won 15 more games that season than they did in 2014, but the team retreated during 2016. Stewart had been hired at the time by Tony La Russa the chief baseball officer for Arizona, who was retained. In a prepared statement, the president of the... 
 

Braves Trade Shelby Miller to Diamondbacks for Ender Inciarte, Top Prospects

One year after trading Jason Heyward for Shelby Miller, the Atlanta Braves have traded their young pitching stud in a new package for a promising young player and prospects. Miller, 25-years-old with three years of team control left, was sent to the Diamondbacks in exchange for outfielder, 25-year-old Ender Inciarte, pitching prospect, Aaron Blair and former number one overall shortstop, Dansby Swanson.

Diamondbacks Reach Agreement With Zack Greinke

The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to terms with Zack Greinke, FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal tweets. The deal is pending a physical. Greinke was reportedly down to the Dodgers and San Francisco Giants, but this would hardly be the first time some team came in at the last minute on a big-name free agent and swept him up. The Diamondbacks normally have a mid-range payroll and shy clear of lengthy, steep contracts with free agents, but a new TV deal worth $1.5 billion has changed that mentality. The Diamondbacks reportedly made a six-year, $120-million... 
 

Diamondbacks Deal Jeremy Hellickson to Phillies For Prospect

PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks have traded right-hander Jeremy Hellickson to the Philadelphia Phillies for right-handed pitching prospect Sam McWilliams. The 28-year-old Hellickson went 9-12 with a 4.62 ERA in 27 starts after being traded to Arizona from Tampa Bay last offseason. He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2011 and won a Gold Glove in 2012 but has struggled giving up homers, allowing at least 20 in four of the past five seasons.

After finishing with a league worst 98 losses in 2014, the Arizona Diamondbacks locked up the first overall pick in this year’s amateur draft.

To start the day, it was reported that they had indeed came to a decision on who they were going to select, but did not release who they had settled on. For the first time as Commissioner Rob Manfred stepped to the podium to announce that Dave Stewart... 
 

Kevin Towers, Arizona Diamondbacks GM Fired

The Arizona Diamondbacks have dismissed general manager Kevin Towers after nearly 4 years on the job,  according to published reports.  In May the Diamondbacks hired Tony LaRussa as a chief baseball officer to oversee Towers and the baseball operations department.  Since that time there has been widespread speculation on whether or not Towers would be retained. Towers was hired on Sept. 22, 2010, with the D-backs mired in last place for a second consecutive season. Josh Byrnes had been dismissed as GM on July 1, and Towers replaced interim GM... 
 

Yankees Acquire Martin Prado, Stephen Drew, at the Deadline

Shortly before the 4:00PM Eastern time trade deadline, the Yankees managed to give its infield a makeover in exchange for a stopgap, designating a veteran for assignment and one solid prospect.

MLB Trade Rumors: Jason Hammel, Ian Kennedy, Brandon McCarthy

Jeff Samardzija and David Price are the two best pitchers on the trade block. However, for teams not looking to sell the farm, Jason Hammel, Ian Kennedy and Brandon McCarthy are attractive options. While these pitchers have an up and down history, they have been very good this year and could make a significant impact in the stretch run. Jason Hammel was signed by the Chicago Cubs this offseason to a modest one year deal worth $6 million. After a strong 2012 season where he established a career-best 22.9 percent strikeout rate, his 2013 campaign... 
 

Arizona Diamondbacks Sign Bronson Arroyo

The 37 year-old Arroyo has been one of the game’s most durable starters, throwing at least 199 innings over the last eight seasons.

Arizona Diamondbacks, Putz, Tanaka, News and Rumors

Boasting a formidable starting rotation and one of the top arms in the minors (21-year-old right-hander Archie Bradley), the Arizona Diamondbacks are expected to be fine in the starting pitching category this year even if they don’t land Masahiro Tanaka.  The closer’s spot, center field and right field, and shortstop are not so certain. At 24, left-hander Patrick Corbin appears poised to serve as Arizona’s staff ace.  He is joined by Trevor Cahill, Wade Miley, Brandon McCarthy and Randall Delgado, and Bradley could force his... 
 

Arizona Diamondbacks Set To Re-Sign Eric Chavez

The Arizona Diamondbacks re-signed veteran third baseman Eric Chavez, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Diamondbacks Showing They Are All In for 2014

Stationed in a National League West division that could be one of the best in baseball next season, the Arizona Diamondbacks appear to be all in for contending in 2014. After acquiring power-hitting left fielder Mark Trumbo in a three-team deal earlier in the month, which will allow Martin Prado to man third base, the Diamondbacks shipped promising third base prospect Matt Davidson to the White Sox for 25-year-old closer Addison Reed.

Is Shin-Soo Choo Worth a $140 Million Deal ?

With the signing of Robinson Cano and Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo is the best hitter available in the free agent class. The 31 year-old outfielder is looking for a big deal, something in the range of seven years at $20 million per year. There are a bevy of teams that are reported to be interested in Choo, including the Seattle Mariners, Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, and Texas Rangers.  How much is Choo worth?

Arizona Diamondbacks starter Tyler Skaggs was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Friday to replace an injured Trevor Cahill, who was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday with a right hip contusion, and turned in a masterful outing against the Colorado Rockies at Chase Field.

D-Backs Kirk Gibson on Heath Bell: “He’s Going to be Our Closer

Some managers like to take the proactive approach when it comes to struggling closer  and sit them down to sort out their troubles, like Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell did recently with Andrew Bailey. The  Detroit Tigers had no problem letting go of old Jose Valverde who was designated for assignment late last week. Others prefer a more nurturing approach, and that’s the route that Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has chosen closer Heath Bell. Pretty much the way it is, he’s going to be our closer,” D-backs manager... 
 

Paul Goldschmidt Homer Leads Arizona Come Back

Paul Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer  with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning off Jeremy Affeldt and the Arizona Diamondbacks rallied to beat the San Francisco Giants 3-1.

Brandon McCarthy Placed on DL with Shoulder Inflammation

Brandon McCarthy had just started to find his stride in the Arizona Diamondbacks‘ rotation, but instead was placed on the DL on Sunday with right shoulder inflammation. The right hander had strung together three consecutive starts with a 0.38 ERA, including two wins and an 18 inning scoreless streak. That run ended during his last start, when he lasted just 2.2 innings in Texas, rounding out his season numbers to date at 2-4 with a 5.00 ERA in 11 total starts.

Tyler Skaggs Baffles Rangers in 2013 Debut

Following an inconsistent spring training, Arizona Diamondbacks top pitching prospect Tyler Skaggs was denied a spot on the starting rotation and reassigned to Triple-A Reno.
