Quotables

"I've had a rough patch the last couple of weeks," Campana said. "I think it's just getting down there and figuring it out at the plate a little bit. I think that's it. Just start swinging it a little better and hopefully come back."

"They're not stupid; they know that we're talking to people, we're considering every option," Hall said. "It's tough on them, and again, at this time I want to focus on these two and say what a professional job they've done.

Inciarte's debut delayed by flight problems; D'backs call up Marte; Worth nothing | dbacks.com: News

Inciarte got the call Wednesday to report to Phoenix for that night's D-backs-Rockies game, but his flight was delayed twice, then cancelled and his next flight was delayed, too. With outfielder Ender Inciarte being added to the roster the D-backs decided that outfielder Tony Campana, who possesses the same skillset, was expendable. So Campana was optioned to Triple-A Reno and the team called up outfielder Alfredo Marte to provide some added power off the bench.

Diamondbacks president: 'We're talking to people, we're considering every option'

Arizona Diamondbacks president Derrick Hall understands that Wednesday's come-from-behind-walk-off-win over the Colorado Rockies does not mean the team's season is about to turn around. Naturally he hopes that's the case, but one win -- no matter how dramatic and exciting -- does not erase the previous month, which was by all accounts a disaster. That's why many people thought a loss Wednesday could have been the final nail in the proverbial coffin for manager Kirk Gibson or general manager Kevin Towers -- or both. So did Miguel Montero's 10th-inning home run save their jobs?
