Diamondbacks | Aaron Hill hitting leadoff

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 15:29:51 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 2B Aaron Hill is hitting leadoff for the 14th time in his career Friday, July 11.

Fantasy Tip: This likely isn't a full-time move, as skipper Kirk Gibson had to switch up his lineup to account for the return of Mark Trumbo.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo returning

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 15:04:00 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo (foot) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday, July 11, and OF Roger Kieschnick was optioned to Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The Snakes may choose to ease Trumbo back right before the All-Star break, but if he's in Arizona's starting lineup, he should be in yours, too. His return likely means less playing time for Cody Ross, Ender Inciarte and maybe even Gerardo Parra in the long term.

Diamondbacks | Will keep payroll at same level

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 23:42:36 -0700

The Arizona Diamondbacks payroll is projected at $110 million next season, which is the same as it was at the start of the 2014 campaign. As such, the team may shed salary via trades in the coming weeks like 3B Martin Prado and 2B Aaron Hill but will likely add that salary back in the offseason.

Diamondbacks | Addison Reed believes problems are mechanical

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 10:25:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Addison Reed, who has just two saves in his last five chances, believes he is mechanically out of whack right now. Reed is 20-for-25 on the season and has allowed nine home runs. Reed naturally throws across his body, and he gets into trouble when his weight drifts to the side instead of moving forward towards the plate in his delivery. He is working hard to correct the problem. The D-backs believe Reed can fix his mechanics, and manager Kirk Gibson isn't even considering giving the job to RP Brad Ziegler.

"Sometimes I just get fastball happy and think I can get by with some well-located fastballs," Reed said. "The thing with me is, I've been getting hurt a lot of times leaving the ball up and over the middle of the plate instead of hitting the corners. Obviously I need to start throwing more sliders and start mixing it up a little more, and when I throw the fastball I need to locate where I am supposed to." Reed's fastball is averaging 92.5 mph this year, which is about where he sat last year after being in the 94.5 mph range his first two seasons with the Chicago White Sox. Reed thinks improving his mechanics will lead to fewer homers allowed, too.

Fantasy Tip: Saves speculators should still take a chance on Ziegler just in case Reed continues to struggle. Eventually, if Reed can't turn things around, Gibson will likely be forced to make a move in the ninth.

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 12:08:31 -0700

Diamondbacks | Skipper backs Addison Reed

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 10:54:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Addison Reed will remain as the team's closer, according to manager Kirk Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: Deja vu. We heard the same statement from Gibson last week the night after Addison blew a save and was hit with the loss. Since then, Reed has recorded one save in between another blown save and loss, which came last night. Reed is on shaky ground, and saves speculators with room should stash Brad Ziegler.

Diamondbacks | Mark Trumbo due back soon

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 07:35:13 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks OF Mark Trumbo (foot) is expected to return after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Ender Inciarte and Cody Ross could see significantly reduced playing time with the emergence of David Peralta and presence of Gerardo Parra upon Trumbo's return. Parra hasn't played a lot of center field the last two years, but he's an elite defender and could see time there.

Diamondbacks | No Miguel Montero

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 14:17:02 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 8, against the Miami Marlins, who are starting left-handed SP Brad Hand.

Fantasy Tip: Montero has only 70 at-bats against left-handed pitchers this season and struggles against them, so consider his absence planned.

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 16:19:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings' (shoulder) left shoulder isn't 100 percent pain-free, and he has yet to resume hitting.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Owings to be ready to return from the disabled list when he's eligible.

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 15:10:33 -0700
