Paul Goldschmidt added to his Diamondback legend on Tuesday night as he joined Steve Finley, Luis Gonzalez, and Mark Reynolds as the only Diamondbacks with multiple seasons of 30 home run production.
Tabbed as the team's opening day starter, Josh Collmenter had a rough, even poor go of things early in the season, causing him to be relegated to the bullpen. It took some time to adjust back to the role, but since his first pitch out of the bullpen on June 18th, Collmenter has established himself as one of the best relievers in the game.
Despite throwing only 92-94 mph, Silvino Bracho is enjoying terrific success in striking out the opposition.
Sadly, despite a stellar season, it looks like Paul Goldschmidt is bound for his second second-place finish.
The Yankee legend and great humanitarian passed away Tuesday night.
