Diamondbacks place Steven Souza on DL, recall Socrates Brito

Diamondbacks place Steven Souza on DL, recall Socrates Brito

Looks like Souza’s PH appearance last night, proved a bit of a false dawn. Steven Souza’s injury-plagued season with the Diamondbacks continues. He missed the first 30 games of the season with a pectoral strain suffered during a spring training game. Souza made his 2018 debut on May 3, without going through a rehab assignment, but struggled out of the gate, his average never reaching the Uecker Line. He appeared to re-aggravate the same issue during the series against the Mets in New York on May 18, but the team initially hoped Steven would be able to avoid another DL stint - he...

John Ryan Murphy Needs To Be The Everyday Starter At Catcher

John Ryan Murphy Needs To Be The Everyday Starter At Catcher

I am officially starting up the John Ryan Murphy bandwagon. Last week I wrote about some regression for the Dbacks offense and overall concluded that most of the team had been underperforming year-to-date. However, one player in particular stood out to me; that would be John Ryan Murphy. What was interesting to me was that JRM was already boasting a solid wRC+ above 100 at the time, yet he was underperforming in both BABIP and HR/FB%. His BABIP was .024 below his xBABIP and his HR/FB% was a whopping 8.1% the expected value. From just watching the games, JRM has looked like a very good...

Snake Bytes 5/22: Free Falling

This is not fun right now. Brewers 4, Diamondbacks 2 [D’backs.com] Greinke can’t contain Crew as D-backs fall - The Arizona Diamondbacks have been removed from at least a tie of first place in the National League West for the first time since the beginning of the season. Zack Greinke was not particularly terrible in the loss, although he did surrender three home runs, but once again the offense gave him absolutely no breathing room. Zack recorded nine strikeouts, five hits, and no walks over six innings. Andrew Chafin and Fernando Salas combined for two innings of scoreless...

Diamondbacks Minor League Recap 5/21/2018: Duplantier does his thing again

Diamondbacks Minor League Recap 5/21/2018: Duplantier does his thing again

It’s becoming a broken record with a quality start every time that man takes the mound. Three of the Diamondbacks Minor League affiliates played with Visalia having the day off. The overall record was 2-1 with well-pitched games in all 3. Jon Duplantier took the mound for Jackson and as you can guess from the title, he had a good outing. Snake Stars: 3 Stars: Jackson RHP Jon Duplantier 6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K, GS 74, W (3-1) 2 Stars: Kane County C Renae Martinez 3 for 5, 2B, HR (4), RBI, R 1 Star: Reno RHP Jake Buchanan 7 IP, 7 H, 2 R (2 ER), 2 BB, 2 K, GS 60, W (3-3) 0 Stars: Kane...

Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Milwaukee Brewers 4: Please Make it Stop

Arizona Diamondbacks 2, Milwaukee Brewers 4: Please Make it Stop

When will it end... After a bone crushing sweep by the New York Mets, the Diamondbacks opened the series with……a loss. Yep, the fire is still burning and the fireman aren’t showing up. With an ump who calls the most balls in the big leagues, the D-Backs were not able to take advantage. We also learned that Bob Brenly does not care for Game of Thrones. This game looked to be an interesting one for the Diamondbacks as the first inning produced a (single) run. With the way this team has been playing, its hard not getting excited about that right? David Peralta led things off with a...

The Arizona Diamondbacks and the 2018 Rule 4 Draft

Preparing for the Diamondbacks to make the 25th selection on draft day, June 4th. Two weeks from today is the 2018 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. Given the surprise success of last year’s team, this year’s club will be choosing 25th in the first round. While not a spectacular position to be drafting from, there is good reason to hold out some hope. Matt Garza (12. bWAR), Bill Buckner (15.1 bWAR), Matt Cain (29.1 bWAR), and Chuck Knoblauch (44.8 bWAR) were all selected 25th in the first round. Granted, some of those are older picks, but Cain and Garza are recent enough to...

Series Preview #16: D-backs @ Brewers

Series Preview #16: D-backs @ Brewers

If at first you don't succeed... Slumps happen in baseball. The inevitability of a 162+ game season is that at some point, nothing will go right and everything will go wrong. This sport has a way of balancing itself out: for every Randy Johnson perfect game there's a 111 loss season, for every 21-8 April a 4-13+ May, for every 13-game win streak- you get the idea. This works conversely as well. A bad situation won't stay bad forever. Paul Goldschmidt isn't going to strattle the Mendoza Line all season, our bullpen isn't going to blow games every night, and none of the team's key...
