Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Nursing shoulder issue
Gurriel was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the White Sox due to left shoulder discomfort, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
It's not clear when or how the injury occurred, but Gurriel must be in some real pain in order to ask out of the lineup as the Diamondbacks fight for their playoff lives. Jake McCarthy entered the lineup in Gurriel's place.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Late entrant into lineup
McCarthy will start in right field and bat seventh in Wednesday's contest versus the White Sox.
McCarthy was not part of the initial lineup, getting added after Lourdes Gurriel was scratched. It's only his third start since he was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Sept. 12.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Lourdes Gurriel: Scratched from lineup
Gurriel was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup against the White Sox.
The reasoning for Gurriel's removal from the batting order isn't clear at this point, but he's presumably dealing with some sort of injury. Corbin Carroll will slide over to left field and Jake McCarthy has entered the lineup in right.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Justin Martinez: Back in big leagues
Martinez was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Martinez will provide a fresh arm for the bullpen after they were needed for six innings in Tuesday's win over the White Sox. The hard-throwing righty hasn't found his footing yet in the majors, giving up 13 runs over eight frames.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zach Davies: Designated for assignment
Davies was designated for assignment Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
The move comes one day after Davies yielded four runs over just three innings in Arizona's win over the White Sox. He didn't go more than four frames in any of his last four outings and heads to the waiver wire having posted a 7.00 ERA over 18 starts this season. Ryne Nelson pitched well in relief of Davies on Tuesday and could now take his spot in the rotation Sunday. Davies has a $5.5 million mutual option or $300,000 buyout for 2024, so the Diamondbacks will pay that latter figure.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Absent from lineup
Rivera is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the White Sox.
Rivera has been part of a rotation at third base for the Diamondbacks but will begin this one on the bench for the fourth time in five contests. Jace Peterson is handling the hot corner.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jace Peterson: Steals base in win
Peterson started at third base and went 0-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base in Tuesday's 15-4 win over the White Sox.
Peterson registered his career-high 14th steal during Arizona's six-run fifth inning. The lefty hitter is in a rotation at third base with Evan Longoria and Emmanuel Rivera, normally getting starts against right-handers but not as part of a strict platoon.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Returns to starting lineup
Marte started at second base and went 2-for-4 with walk, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Tuesday's 15-4 win over the White Sox.
Marte did not play in Sunday's game due to an illness and was held out of the starting lineup Monday, although he entered that game as a pinch hitter. He's hit in five straight games when starting, going 10-for-20 with three home runs, a double, six RBI and seven runs scored. He's up to 94 runs scored, three shy of the career-high 97 he had in 2019. The Diamondbacks have five games remaining while competing for a wild-card spot, so Marte should be a lineup staple going forward.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Swats pair of homers
Walker went 3-for-5 with a triple, a two-run homer, a solo shot, three additional RBI and an additional run scored in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.
Walker played a featured role in Arizona's offensive bonanza Tuesday, launching a solo homer in the second and a two-run shot in the sixth while also legging out his second triple of 2023. The first baseman is up to 33 homers with five games left on the schedule, and he's just three long balls away from tying his career high. Through 153 games, Walker is slashing .265/.340/.510 while striking out at a career-best 19.3 percent clip.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zach Davies: Roughed up by ChiSox
Davies did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing four runs on eight hits and one walk over three innings against the White Sox. He struck out three.
Despite being 10 days removed from his last start due to a postponement, Davies failed to go deeper than three frames Tuesday. He was immediately tagged by Eloy Jimenez for a three-run homer in the first inning before also surrendering an RBI single to the slugger in the second frame. Davies has now lasted four or fewer innings in four consecutive outings, a stretch in which he's surrendered at least three runs in every start. The veteran is lined up to make one more start this season, which is expected to come Sunday against the Astros.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Enters as pinch hitter
Marte (Illness) walked as a pinch hitter in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Yankees.
Marte walked for Jordan Lawlar in the eighth inning, loading the bases before Corbin Carroll drove in two with a single to give Arizona a brief lead. Marte stayed in the game to play second base. He'd been dealing with a stomach bug that made him unavailable Sunday and held him out of Monday's starting nine, but his usage suggests a return to the starting lineup Tuesday, when Arizona is in Chicago to start a three-game set with the White Sox....

Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Delivers two in loss
Thomas went 1-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Yankees.
Thomas delivered a two-out, two-run double in the first inning to give Arizona an early lead. The outfielder has scuffled during the month of September, going 13-for-67 (.194) with a .579 OPS, but the inconsistent Thomas has driven in 13 runs over 21 games this month. That's the most RBI he's had in any month this season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Kevin Ginkel: Doesn't have it in loss
Ginkel (9-1) was tagged with a blown save and the loss against the Yankees on Monday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks. He struck out one.
Ginkel, who had thrown 28 pitches the day before, entered to begin the eighth inning with Arizona clinging to a 4-3 lead. That's normal terrain for Ginkel, who worked the same inning Sunday and has emerged as a reliable setup arm during the second half. Unfortunately for the Diamondbacks and their playoff hunt, he didn't have it Monday. The Yankees loaded the bases on two singles and a walk with one out, before Ginkel walked in the tying run and then allowed the winning run on a sacrifice fly. An additional run was charged to him when Everson Pereira greeted Miguel Castro with a single. Ginkel had not allowed a run in eight consecutive outings and sported a 1.82 ERA since the All-Star break entering Monday.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Corbin Carroll: Tallies three hits in loss
Carroll went 3-for-5 with a run, an RBI and a stolen base in a loss to the Yankees on Monday.
Carroll once again served as a catalyst out of the leadoff spot for Arizona, as he was the only player on the team with multiple hits in the contest. The rookie phenom came up with a big knock in the top of the eighth inning that plated the go-ahead run for his squad, but the Yankees stormed back with a trio of runs in the bottom of the frame to pull out the win. Carroll is riding a red-hot stretch as he tries to guide Arizona into the postseason. Over his past seven games, he's batting .424 (14-for-33) with a home run, five RBI, eight runs and four thefts.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Tosses five frames in no-decision
Kelly allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five batters over five innings in a no-decision against the Yankees on Monday.
Kelly got through three scoreless frames before Austin Wells tagged him for a two-run homer in the fourth. Those were the only runs Kelly surrendered, but he departed after five innings having thrown 96 pitches. The right-hander has tossed at least five frames in 28 straight starts after opening the campaign with a 3.2-inning outing against the Dodgers. Kelly is in line for one more start in the regular season, which is tentatively slated to come in Houston this weekend. It could be a huge game and series with both teams currently looking to get into the postseason.... See More ... See Less
