"He was everything I hoped he would be. He’s right where he needs to be going into the offseason, with confidence that he’s healthy. He’s going to get stronger and have a regular offseason to get ready to pitch."

Daily D'backs

Goldy's 32nd homer isn't enough for D-backs -

The Astros' season will not come to an end Sunday. That much they ensured by winning for the sixth time in seven games, 6-2, behind two homers by Colby Rasmus and a strong pitching performance from Collin McHugh on Saturday night at Chase Field.

Patrick Corbin’s innings could be capped in 2016 -

So much so that it’s reasonable to wonder what the Diamondbacks should expect to get out of Corbin in 2016, and whether they need to plan to avoid their own Matt Harvey-like situation this time next year.

Will Peter O'Brien Return to Catching? -

Peter O’Brien is one of the more talented prospects that the Arizona Diamondbacks have. He’s also a player without a position thanks to the tremendous depth that Arizona has. After being transitioned from catcher to an outfielder, reports have O’Brien wanting to return to the catcher position so he can get a shot at playing.

David Peralta, Ender Inciarte banged up as season nears end -

Entering the final series of the year, the Diamondbacks didn’t have much more clarity on the status of two of their most important players, as outfielders David Peralta and Ender Inciarte were left off the lineup due to injuries.

Aggressive approach helping Phil Gosselin at plate -

Though the Diamondbacks have been impressed with his ability to see pitches and work counts, infielder Phil Gosselin thinks part of his success at the plate this year has been due to a more aggressive approach.
