Arizona Diamondbacks’ Tyler Gilbert tosses MLB’s eighth no-hitter of the season in first start

Tyler Gilbert, gotten by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft only eight months ago, threw a no-hitter in the first start of his major league career on Saturday night. He did so by blanking a star-studded San Diego Padres lineup while toeing the rubber for a last-place team, writing one of the most improbable sports stories of 2021. Gilbert, 27, became the fourth pitcher in baseball history to throw a no-hitter in his first big league start. Only two have done that since the start of the 20th century, most recently Bobo Holloman in 1953. “Amazing,” Gilbert […]

The New York Yankees are concluding a deal to acquire outfielder Joey Gallo from the Texas Rangers, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Wednesday night. The deal is pending a medical review. The Rangers will get right-handers Glenn Otto and Randy Vasquez, second baseman Ezequiel Duran, shortstop Josh Smith, second baseman/outfielder Trevor Hauver and outfielder Everson Pereira from New York, sources told Passan. Gallo was a late scratch from the Rangers’ lineup ahead of Wednesday night’s game versus the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks, with speculation that a trade was in the works. That proved to be the case, with the Yankees swooping in and acquiring arguably the […]

Arizona Diamondbacks’ 24-game road losing skid finally ends with rout of Padres

It had been 62 days and 24 road matches since the Arizona Diamondbacks shook hands on an opponent’s field after a triumph. “You can’t imagine how good it feels,” manager Torey Lovullo said after the Diamondbacks snapped their MLB-record, 24-game road losing streak by routing the San Diego Padres 10-1 on Saturday night. Merrill Kelly threw six strong scoreless innings, and Eduardo Escobar had four hits and five RBIs. Escobar and Christian Walker homered for the Diamondbacks, who hadn’t won away from Chase Field since April 25, when Madison Bumgarner pitched seven no-hit innings at Atlanta. “I’m proud of these guys,” Lovullo said. “We played a real good baseball game today, […]

Darvish concluded second in National League Cy Young Award voting for 2020 after going 8-3 with a 2.01 ERA.

Dodgers put Walker Buehler on IL, reinstate Joe Kelly

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed starting pitcher Walker Buehler on the injured list Thursday due to a lingering blister issue in his pitching hand and reinstated hard-throwing reliever Joe Kelly, who will start serving his five-game suspension for his confrontation with Houston Astros hitters in late July. Buehler was placed on the IL in late August because of the same blister, which resides on his right index finger, and he missed a couple of turns through the rotation. He pitched five scoreless innings in his return on Sept. 2, but gave up five runs (two earned) in the third inning versus the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday and later was […]

Diamondbacks agree on 4 year extension with Nick Ahmed

The Diamondbacks have agreed to a four-year contract extension with shortstop Nick Ahmed, the club informed Monday afternoon. The deal is worth $32.5 million, per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. Ahmed was set to hit free agency after this coming season, so it includes his final arbitration year and the first three years of would-be free agency.  Ahmed heads to his age-30 season coming off the best year of his career. He’s long been an exceptional defender at a premium position, but last season he upped his offensive game, hitting .254/.316/.437 (93 OPS+) with 33 doubles, six triples, 19 homers, 82 RBI, 79 runs […]

Kole Calhoun agrees to 2 year deal with Diamondbacks

Former Los Angeles Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun agreed to a contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday. League sources told ESPN and MLB Media that Calhoun and the Diamondbacks are in agreement on a two-year, $16 million deal. The contract also includes a third-year club option for $9 million, with a $2 million buyout. “This is really kind of a dream come true, honestly,” Calhoun said Monday. “I’m born and raised here, grew up a Diamondback fan. Anybody who dreams of playing in the big leagues and you get there, your dreams come true. But as a kid growing up, I always dreamed of playing for the Diamondbacks […]

Stephen Vogt agrees to 1 year deal with Diamondbacks

The Diamondbacks signed veteran catcher Stephen Vogt to a one-year deal with an option for a second season, a deal that gives them an offensive-minded, left-handed-hitting complement to frontline catcher Carson Kelly. Vogt, 35, is coming off a strong season with the San Francisco Giants, for whom he hit .263/.314/.490 with 10 homers while serving as Buster Posey’s backup. It was an impressive bounceback year for a player who feared his career was in jeopardy when he underwent shoulder surgery in 2018, missing that season entirely. Vogt’s deal guarantees him $3 million. It calls for a $2.5 million salary for […]
