Arizona Diamondbacks' Chris Young eager for homecoming against Houston Astros
D-Backs hope Chris Young's next homecoming will be as eventful as his previous ones.

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Dan Haren handles bat like a hitter
 Ace right-hander is 9 for 18 with 2 doubles at plate. Could he be used more often as a pinch-hitter?

[Edit by Jim] I found a few more bits and pieces, some AZ, some around the league. Find those after the jump

[dbacks.com] D-backs option Mulvey, recall Valdez - Not a great shock, and needed to open up a spot on the 25-man roster for tonight's scheduled starter Cesar Valdez

[MLB.com] Johan suffers uncharacteristic flareup - "Santana was overwhelmed by the Phillies. He allowed more runs -- 10 -- in 3 2/3 innings than he had in any other start in his career and was the losing pitcher in a grotesque 11-5 loss to the team that displaced the Mets as the division leader."

[FanHouse] Players Chew on Potential Tobacco Ban - "Last month the House Energy and Commerce Committee convened a hearing focusing on the use of smokeless tobacco by major leaguers. The goal of chairman Henry Waxman (D.-Calif.) was to encourage MLB to ban the products in the big leagues, expanding a ban that's been in effect in the minors since 1993."

[Purple Row] Kelly Johnson - Should We Have Seen This Coming? - "The power will drop, but he's still in position to a big-time asset for Arizona deep into this season."
