He was signed by the Diamondbacks at the age of just sixteen in July 2016, for a bonus of just $70K, has hasn’t played formal minor-league ball above High A.

Snake Bytes: 4/3 - Just Lulling Them to Sleep, Right?

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports The Diamondbacks have dropped the first two games of the season to the new-look Padres. Here’s hoping this is all just part of some plan to get other teams overly confident and have them fall asleep against Arizona when it matters most. Diamondbacks News Arizona 2, San Diego 4 Merrill Kelly allowed three runs through four innings of work as a starter. Josh Rojas’ defense at shortstop, while not bad, reminded Arizona fans of just how spoiled they have been to have Nick Ahmed playing the position for the last five seasons. Ketel Marte,...

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ It’s Opening Day. So what better time to take a final gauge of fan confidence! March results Despite an extended gap between February and March polls, for which I take full responsibility, it didn’t seem to move the needle very much in terms of the results. The injury to Kole Calhoun, and the issues affecting Nick Ahmed and TIm Locastro were perhaps already factored into the score, or may have been balanced out by the signings of Joakim Soria and Tyler Clippard. 27% - 1 (not confident in the slightest) 17% - 2 17% - 3 19% - 4 9% - 5 7% -...

Diamondbacks rotation announced To absolutely no-one’s surprise, especially after the injury to Zac Gallen, Madison Bumgarner will be Arizona’s Opening Day starter against Yu Darvish and the Padres in San Diego on Thursday. Torey Lovullo announced this during today’s pre-game media call (the game isn’t being broadcast locally, so there’ll be no Gameday Thread).
