There’s a good chance you haven’t seen much of Diamondbacks first baseman Paul Goldschmidt over the last few seasons, despite the fact that he’s one of the best hitters in baseball.

Did The Diamondbacks Hassle Another Dodgers Fan About His Clothes? 

A Dodgers fan in Chase Field’s Batters Box Suite appeared to be told to remove his cap and put on a companion’s D-Backs jersey during yesterday afternoon’s game, an incident similar to one two years ago that a ballpark patron called “ the worst experience she’s ever had at a sporting event.” » 4/13/15 10:00am 4/13/15 10:00am

Diamondbacks Peg Andrew McCutchen In Back; McCutchen Furious

Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen took a pitch to his back in Saturday night's game against the Diamondbacks. On a 2-0 count, Arizona reliever Randall Delgado plunked McCutchen. It looked painful, but McCutchen wasn't seriously injured. McCutchen was visibly furious, not at the beaning, but because of how it was… » 8/03/14 1:27pm 8/03/14 1:27pm

Bronson Arroyo Was About As Pretty OK, I Guess, As Anyone Ever

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo announced on Monday that he will be undergoing Tommy John surgery to repair the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. The news that a 37-year-old pitcher who has never really warranted a descriptor any more generous than "OK" is out for the foreseeable future… » 7/08/14 2:11pm 7/08/14 2:11pm
