USA TODAY Sports

Seriously, I want to know. Is he any good? Haven't heard much about him.

Quotes of the Day

“I wanted to be the first local product from the Phoenix area to be drafted by my hometown team and make it up through the system with my hometown team. That was probably my biggest motivation.”

Arizona Diamondbacks rally past Los Angeles Dodgers in the 9th inning

You cannot accuse last night's game of being boring. The Snakes got 6 serviceable, if unremarkable, innings from Wade Miley, but remained 2 runs back for much of the game. Then in the top of the 9th, in front of the remaining 3,000 Dodger fans, the Diamondbacks got to Los Angeles closer Brandon League, scoring 4 runs to put them ahead for good.

Once-dominant Arizona Diamondbacks starting staff in middle of ‘rough spell’

A few short weeks ago the Diamondbacks had an embarrassment of riches at starting pitcher. It seemed like serviceable middle-rotation guys grew on trees. But I owe you an apology, I idly (and with great hubris) speculated on what shape the rotation should take when Daniel Hudson inevitably returned from the DL and Tyler Skaggs forced his way into the lineup based on pure talent. I envisioned trades centered around Ian Kennedy (who in my fantasy world became superfluous) that would clear the way for one of our many capable minor league aces. But reality has struck me down, reminding me not to speak of pitcher performance as an inevitability - there's a reason TINSTAAPP is a thing. One week later and Hudson's out for at least a year, Brandon McCarthy hit the DL AND had a seizure, Skaggs has looked mortal, and everybody in the rotation not named Patrick Corbin has forgotten how to throw strikes. It seems we may have flown too close to the sun.

Arizona Diamondbacks recall Joe Paterson, Charles Brewer

The aforementioned flurry of moves. The big question here is whether Skaggs will get the call the next time the Diamondbacks need a 5th starter. Charles Brewer made his debut last night in relief of Wade Miley, allowing 3 hits and no runs over 1.2 innings
