Recapping Yesterday:

Opening Day Preview: Diamondbacks 10, Giants 0

Josh Collmenter toes the mound opposite Madison Bumgarner on St. Patrick's Day. That's probably the end of the Opening Day comparisons, but the Diamondbacks would sure love it if things progress in similar fashion on April 6th.

The Rotation:

Stewart on Bradley: "We're waiting."

Archie Bradle looks much better than he did last season, but it seems there is still work to be done before the young right-hander will be making his way to the big leagues.

Robbie Ray Impresses

After two poor outings and looking like a candidate for early dismissal from Spring Training, Robbie Ray found his groove on Monday afternoon, throwing four innings of one-hit ball.

Position Battles:

Tomás or Lamb? Third Base Still up for Grabs

Two weeks into camp, the first cuts have been made, but the competition for third base is heated as heated as it has been since the Diamondbacks signed Yasmany Tomás.

Nick Ahmed Trying to Make Things Interesting

It's business as usual as Nick Ahmed continues to work at proving his doubters wrong. If the man can hit, the Diamondbacks have a nice problem in the middle infield.

Cody Ross Feeling Much Stronger

There's no denying that Cody Ross' 2014 season performance was heavily influenced by his recover from a horrific injury sustained near the end of 2013. Now, fully recovered, Cod Ross is starting to look more like the player who was signed by the Diamondbacks in the first place.
