"I definitely have that fire burning inside, that competitive fire. If you give up a base hit, some people want you to react differently. For me, keeping that same expression, just being the same person all the way throughout the game, I think that's what's always worked for me."
- Jermey Hellickson
His hat pulled low and his face stoic, right-hander Jeremy Hellickson betrays little on the mound. He could be throwing a gem or getting hammered, painting the corners or just missing. There's no telling from looking at him. Perhaps, then, the events that led to his trade on Friday from the Tampa Bay Rays to the Diamondbacks makes some sense.
The Arizona Diamondbacks took care of some necessary business Thursday by adding infielder Brandon Drury and four others to set their 40-man roster.
Since 2011, Hall and Putz have talked about the right-hander coming to work for the organization once his playing career was over. Putz now has a signed contract that makes him special assistant to the president/CEO.
The D-backs traded right-handed pitcher Mike Bolsinger to the Dodgers on Saturday for cash considerations, the team announced.
