Short Week Stats: Diamondbacks Trends for September 7th-12th

'Twas a short week we had there, with just three games in San Diego and two at home against the Dodgers. It's hard to judge players on just five games. Of course, that won't stop me from doing it anyway, but keep in mind the usual Small Sample Size disclaimers...

Read on to see how the Diamondbacks performed this past week.

Starting Rotation

Player Trend Notes
Ian Kennedy
Kennedy had a fabulous game on Tuesday. He held the Dodgers to four hits over seven and a third scoreless innings, striking out six. Our ace was our ace when we needed him most - the offense only managed one run of support but it got Ian the win.
Trevor Cahill
After the first inning yesterday, it was looking like the usual Cahill outing. But after giving up two runs on two hits in the first, Cahill really settled down, giving up just two hits over the next six scoreless innings. Job well done to keep the team in the game and to earn the win.
Wade Miley
Wade's not making it easy on himself to remain the front-runner for Rookie of the Year. He had his second straight short outing in San Diego, giving up five earned runs (one after he left the game) without getting out of the sixth inning. Still, the team got him the win, his 15th of the year.
Patrick Corbin
Corbin too had a short stint in San Diego. He gave up two early runs, then a solo home run in the 6th. He allowed two more baserunners before leaving the game, but they were stranded.
Tyler Skaggs
A bump in the road for Skaggs - five runs in three innings, including a three-run home run - at Petco Park over the weekend. Not a good evening.


Player Trend Notes
Matt Albers
Albers got out of Corbin's jam on Saturday in San Diego by stranding both inherited baserunners.
Brad Bergesen
Brad pitched two scoreless innings in San Diego, allowing just one hit.
Josh Collmenter
Josh pitched two middle innings Friday night vs the Padres, striking out three, walking one, and giving up one hit.
David Hernandez
Hernandez took the loss Friday night, giving up a solo home run right after the Diamondbacks had tied the game. But with J.J. out of commission the past two days, David earned two saves against the Dodgers.
J.J. Putz
J.J. struck out the side in the 9th for a save on Saturday night. His back kept him out of the Dodger series.
Matt Lindstrom
Lindstrom pitched a scoreless inning against the Padres, striking out two.
Takashi Saito
It takes talent to give up five runs (four plus one inherited) in one-third of an inning and have your ERA go down because they were technically unearned. But fans would be more impressed if he can manage to get any scoreless outs...
Bryan Shaw
Shaw pitched an inning across two Padres games, and he allowed one run charged to Miley.
Mike Zagurski
Big Z gave up a walk (that later scored) in his one-out appearance Sunday afternoon.
Brad Ziegler
Little Z got the most work out of all the bullpen members this week - one inning in San Diego, one and two-thirds against L.A. - and was fabulous, as almost-always. He earned three holds and tallied up another GIDP.

Starting Lineup

Player Trend Notes
Adam Eaton
Eaton was a monster 6-for-14 in the San Diego series, but cooled down here at home - 0-for-6 with two walks.
Aaron Hill
A slow week for Hilly, just 2-for-18, but one of those hits was a home run. He also had four walks.
Jason Kubel
Kubel's had a few key hits Saturday in San Diego, and four RBI total, but overall it was only a .200 average + seven strikeout week.
Paul Goldschmidt
Just three hits on the week for Goldy, but add three walks and a stolen base and he was on base enough to score three of the four runs Arizona scored against the Dodgers.
Miguel Montero
A good week for Montero - six hits (two doubles), three walks, and four RBI.
Justin Upton
Upton mashed it Saturday night in SD - 4-for-5, including a solo home run - and brought in two runs with his double yesterday. The other three games, though, he was 0-for-11.
Chris Johnson
Johnson hit .308 / .438 / .385 across four games last week.
John McDonald
Let's face it, Mac is more valuable in the field (where he is incredibly valuable) than at the plate - just 1-for-14 in four games.


Player Trend Notes
Willie Bloomquist
While back with the team officially, he's on the "unofficial DL" and hasn't played since his pinch hit in San Francisco.
Jake Elmore
Elmore went 2-for-5 with two key RBI in Saturday's win. He was 0-for-1 yesterday as a pinch hitter.
Tyler Graham
Graham pinch ran for CY in San Diego.
Wil Nieves
Nieves hasn't been seen since Cincinnati was in town...
Gerardo Parra
Parra was mostly used as a late-inning substitute this week. He was 2-for-6 with two RBI.
Cody Ransom
Ransom last played in San Francisco.
Konrad Schmidt
Schmidt ground out as a pinch hitter in San Diego.
Chris Young
Young had a pinch hit Friday night, but has otherwise been on the "unofficial DL" with his strained quad.
Ryan Wheeler
Wheeler had a big night on Friday against the Padres, going 2-for-4 with three RBI. Since then, he's gone 0-for-5.

Disabled List

Player Trend Notes
Henry Blanco
Blanco was transferred to the 60-day DL, so he won't be back this season.
Daniel Hudson
bandaid plus
Huddy's still on the rehab train, working its way into the station... verrry slowly...

Stats run from 9/7 - 9/12.
