Diamondbacks' Drey Jameson: Records third win
Jameson (3-0) earned the win Saturday, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over six innings against the Giants. He struck out seven.
Jameson's biggest mistake came on a solo home run from third baseman J.D. Davis with two outs in the sixth inning to cut Arizona's lead to 3-2. This was just the fourth major-league start of the 25-year-old's career, and he has allowed two runs or fewer in all four with three of them being quality starts.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Scratched from Saturday's lineup
Rivera was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Giants due to mild soreness in his left forearm.
Rivera was slated to start at third base Saturday but was removed from the lineup less than an hour before the start of the game. Although his forearm soreness is described as mild, it's not yet clear whether he'll be available off the bench or whether he'll be able to return for Sunday's series finale. Buddy Kennedy will take over at the hot corner and bat sixth Saturday.... See More ... See Less

Diamondbacks' Josh Rojas: Adds steal in loss
Rojas went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 10-4 loss to the Giants.
This was Rojas' first multi-hit effort since Sept. 11. The 28-year-old had a rough month, going 15-for-74 (.203), which cost him some playing time in combination with sloppy defense. He's been more good than bad in 2022 overall, logging a .264/.345/.376 slash line with eight home runs, 51 RBI, 64 runs scored and 21 steals in 120 games.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Keeps running Friday
McCarthy went 3-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 10-4 loss to the Giants.
McCarthy finished an excellent September with 10 steals in 12 attempts across 23 games. He also hit .299 (26-for-87) this month, though he put up only four extra-base hits. The speedy outfielder's surge has him up to a .291/.353/.441 slash line with 22 steals, eight home runs, 41 RBI and 51 runs scored through 94 contests.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Merrill Kelly: Hit hard Friday
Kelly (13-8) allowed eight runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out two over 4.2 innings, taking the loss Friday versus the Giants.
Evan Longoria took Kelly deep twice and Mike Yastrzemski added a home run and an RBI double, accounting for seven of the eight runs Kelly yielded. The eight runs allowed matched Kelly's season high from May 17 versus the Dodgers. Outings like this have been rare for the right-hander, who still has a 3.43 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 170:59 K:BB through 194.1 innings across 32 starts. He's projected for one more start in 2022, which would be in Milwaukee next week.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Buddy Kennedy: Back in majors
Kennedy was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Friday.
Kennedy, who turns 24 on the final day of the regular season, hit .261/.363/.385 with seven home runs in 93 games at Triple-A this season. He has a .626 OPS in 80 at-bats in the majors. This is the corresponding move to Ketel Marte going on the injured list, so Kennedy could see time at second base over the final days of the season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Ketel Marte: Season over
Marte (undisclosed) was placed on the injured list Friday.
He was originally listed as part of Friday's lineup, so it's unclear what the exact injury is, but Marte hasn't been 100 percent healthy for much of the season. Buddy Kennedy, who was recalled in a corresponding move, could get some opportunities over the final days of the season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Stefan Crichton: Makes return before season's end
Double-A Amarillo activated Crichton (undisclosed) from its 60-day injured list Sept. 13 and assigned him to Triple-A Reno.
Crichton had been sidelined all season with the unspecified injury before joining Reno two weeks ago. Through his four appearances in the Pacific Coast League, Crichton has given up four runs (three earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out two over 3.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Mark Melancon: Earns 18th save
Melancon didn't allow a baserunner during the 10th inning to pick up the save against the Astros on Wednesday.
Melancon's number was called in the bottom of the 10th, and he proceeded to retire all three batters he faced on a total of six pitches to record his first save since Aug. 17. The 37-year-old reliever has been solid for the Diamondbacks in September to the tune of a 2.70 ERA and 1.20 WHIP over 10 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Reyes Moronta: Earns second win
Moronta (2-1) earned the win Wednesday against Houston, allowing one hit and two walks over one inning while striking out one.
Moronta entered the game in the bottom of the ninth and issued a pair of two-out walks to load the bases, but he was able to retire Jose Altuve to end the inning. The Diamondbacks followed with three runs in the top of the 10th to put Moronta in line for the win. The right-hander has not allowed a run in his last three appearances and has given up three runs through 12 outings in September.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Zac Gallen: Solid over seven innings
Gallen did not factor into the decision against the Astros on Wednesday, allowing two runs on six hits over seven innings. He struck out six and also walked a batter.
Gallen retired 12 of the first 14 batters he faced before he allowed a two-out double to Trey Mancini in the bottom of the fifth, which was followed by a two-run homer from Chas McCormick. The right-hander would allow only three singles and a walk for the remainder of the game, though he also plunked a batter. Gallen holds a 2.16 ERA and 0.69 WHIP in September to go along with a 41:5 K:BB over that span. He lines up to take on the Brewers on the road in the penultimate game of the regular season Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Christian Walker: Knocks in three in win
Walker went 1-for-4 with three RBI in Wednesday's 5-2 extra-inning win over the Astros.
Walker delivered a run in the first inning on a sacrifice fly and followed with a two-out, two-run single in the 10th. The 31-year-old first baseman has a team-high and career-high 91 RBI through 154 games. Walker, who also leads the team with 36 home runs, resuscitated his career in 2022 after a couple of down seasons. He's still under team control for the next two years and is almost certain to return as the primary first baseman in 2023.... See More ... See Less
