  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Enters late, steals base

    Thomas entered Tuesday's game as a pinch runner and recorded a steal in a 6-2 win over Kansas City.

    Thomas ran for Lourdes Gurriel in the eighth, and his stolen base produced a run when Freddy Fermin committed a throwing error while attempting to throw him out. The steal was Thomas' second in four games and third of the season. Thomas, who was held out of the starting lineup against a right-hander, finished the game in center field.

  • Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Nabs steal in win

    Gurriel went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Royals.

    Gurriel is 4-for-22 over five games since the All-Star break, with none of those hits going for extra bases. He also hasn't generated an RBI in that span. The outfielder hit a stellar .318 with eight extra-base hits and 14 RBI over the 21 contests leading into the break. For the year, he's at a .259/.289/.407 slash line with five steals, 13 home runs, 56 RBI, 45 runs scored, 15 doubles and a triple over 93 games.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Goes deep again

    Marte went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and three total runs scored in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Royals.

    Marte has four homers over his last 10 games and is up to 21 long balls on the year. During that sample, he's hitting .417 (15-for-36) with 10 RBI and two stolen bases. The second baseman continues to be an engine for the Diamondbacks with a .294/.364/.521 slash line, 61 RBI, 69 runs scored, six stolen bases, 19 doubles and two triples through 97 contests overall.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Montgomery: Earns win in return

    Montgomery (7-5) earned the win Tuesday over the Royals, allowing one run on three hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings.

    Montgomery missed nearly a month with right knee inflammation, but he was able to skip a rehab assignment. The southpaw threw 67 pitches (39 strikes) Tuesday and may need to build up over his next couple of starts to get back to a regular workload. In terms of performance, this was one of his best outings of the season and something to build upon in the second half. He's at a 6.11 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 47:24 K:BB through 70.2 innings over 14 starts this season. Montgomery is lined up for a home start versus the Nationals his next time out.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: On bench Tuesday

    Thomas is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

    After drawing the start against a left-handed pitcher Monday, Thomas will get the night off Tuesday. Jake McCarthy will bat eighth and fill center field.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Montgomery: Back from IL, starting Tuesday

    The Diamondbacks reinstated Montgomery (knee) from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday against the Royals, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    The veteran left-hander has been on the shelf nearly a month due to right knee inflammation and is returning to Arizona's rotation without a minor-league rehab assignment. Montgomery threw 56 pitches in a simulated game Thursday and will likely face some minor workload limitations in his first couple starts back with the Diamondbacks.

  • Diamondbacks' Humberto Castellanos: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Castellanos to Triple-A Reno on Tuesday, Jesse Friedman of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Castellanos threw 40 pitches over three innings in a relief appearance in Monday's loss to the Royals, so he wasn't going to be available to pitch for at least a day or two. He's clearing out to make room on the roster for Jordan Montgomery, who returns from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday in Kansas City.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Montgomery: Returning Tuesday

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo confirmed Monday that Montgomery (knee) will return from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday against Kansas City, MLB.com reports.

    Montgomery has been working his way back since experiencing right knee soreness June 29 and landing on the IL a few day slater. The left-hander threw a string of bullpen sessions and simulated game in preparation for Tuesday's start.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: On base twice against lefty

    Thomas went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run scored in Monday's 10-4 loss to Kansas City.

    Thomas got the rare start against a lefty and reached base twice. He's 2-for-17 with one walk against southpaws this season and owns a .168/.201/.249 career line off them. Thomas, who has hit safely in five consecutive starts, is batting .220/.258/.441 with four doubles, three home runs, 13 RBI, nine runs scored and two stolen bases over 20 games this season.

  • Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Swats homer in loss

    Marte went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Monday's 10-4 loss to the Royals.

    Marte gave the Diamondbacks an early lead with a two-run homer in the third inning, but it fell apart after that. The blast was Marte's 20th, marking his second consecutive season hitting that benchmark. The second baseman is slashing .310/.403/.466 with three home runs and 10 RBI over 15 games in the month of July.

  • Diamondbacks' Yilber Diaz: Tagged with seven runs

    Diaz (1-1) allowed seven runs on nine hits and a walk over three-plus innings while taking a loss against the Royals on Monday.

    Diaz gave up one run through two innings before Kansas City's bats caught fire. He allowed three runs in the third inning and was charged with three more in the fourth after giving up three straight hits to open the inning. Diaz had coughed up just two runs over 12 innings to begin his MLB career before Monday's brutal outing. His ERA jumped to 5.40 across three starts. As of now, he's lined up for a home matchup with the Pirates.

  • Diamondbacks' Geraldo Perdomo: Getting rest Monday

    Perdomo is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.

    After going hitless in the final two games of the Diamondbacks' series against the Cubs this past weekend, Perdomo will get a breather as Arizona's road trip moves to Kansas City. Kevin Newman will step in for Perdomo at shortstop and will bat eighth.

  • Diamondbacks' Joc Pederson: On bench against lefty

    Pederson is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals.

    The left-handed Pederson will hit the bench for the second day in a row while the Diamondbacks face off against another southpaw in Cole Ragans. Randal Grichuk will replace Pederson at designated hitter.

  • Diamondbacks' Justin Martinez: Blows save chance

    Martinez allowed one run on two hits and one walk in the ninth inning Sunday, blowing the save in a 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Cubs.

    With closer Paul Sewald unavailable to protect a ninth-inning lead after having being deployed the previous two days, manager Torey Lovullo turned to Martinez, who was also used Friday and Saturday but had thrown fewer pitches (25) than Sewald (33). Martinez, facing the same group of hitters he shut down Saturday, allowed a double to Nico Hoerner and a single to Seiya Suzuki, permitting the lead to slip away. The rookie right-hander has worked his way into a high-leverage role this season and could eventually become a late-game staple.

  • Diamondbacks' Paul Sewald: Unavailable for save opportunity

    Sewald was unavailable to pitch in Sunday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Cubs.

    The Diamondbacks carried a 1-0 lead into the ninth inning, but Sewald had been used the previous two games and thrown 33 pitches. Justin Martinez, who had also pitched Friday and Saturday, was unable to secure the save. Since a rough stretch earlier in July, Sewald has converted four straight save chances and tossed five straight scoreless appearances.
