This Day In Diamondbacks History: May 23

Overall: 6-5 - Home: 3-4 - Road: 3-1
  • 2006: The Arizona Diamondbacks released Neal Musser.Yeah, look uo "slow news day" in the dictionary, and you'd probably find a picture of this date. Musser has been somebody, being a second-round pick of the Mets in 1999, but never lived up to that promise. He had a 5.45 ERA for Tucson before Arizona decided to let him go; He did reach the majors with the Royals in 2007-08, but was last heard of playing indy ball in 2010.
  • 2008: Ah, here's something actually worth commemorating. Doug Davis made his first start after returning from thyroid cancer surgery. He was thoroughly dominant in an 11-1 win over the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over seven innings, with four strikeouts. Arizona jumped on top early, with a five-run first, and used the long ball, five players getting home-runs. Chris Young was one, finishing the day with two hits and three runs driven in.
  • 2011: An off-day for the Diamondbacks, as they traveled from Phoenix to Denver, in preparation for their upcoming series against the Rockies.
