Some notable NON Diamondbacks slow hitting starts in 2021

Photo by Jennifer Stewart/ GM’s and fantasy owners alike might be squirming a bit It’s very early, and the sample sizes are tiny. So it’s generally not a good idea to come to conclusions based on this many games and at bats. But here are some slow starts worth monitoring: Original Report Link Names are linked to BB-Reference player pages. Joc Pederson: The Cubs opted not to sign Kyle Schwarber and instead went with left-handed platoon outfielder Pederson. So far it’s been a very slow start for Joc. He’s not hitting righties or lefties. The...

They had as many as 9 players on the Covid IL at one point. When they finally got started on April 6th they beat the Braves in a walk off...

Snake Bytes 4/15: On The Road Again

*crying* I just can’t wait to get on the road again.... Diamondbacks News: *TODAY: Dbacks @ Nationals - Merrill Kelly v Patrick Corbin - 4:05 p.m. our time. It’s been a week since we have really heard anything about Ketel Marte When Gallen went down I feel we got a bit more info or insight to the severity of his injury, or lack there of. Ahmed’s injury was a bit more secretive at 1st, a sore knee followed by missing almost a week of spring training. Finally Ahmed returned to the line-up just to be scratched for TWO MORE GAMES for personal reasons. Reasons that were not...

Geraldo Perdomo shows poise in MLB debut

Photo by Dustin Bradford/ Arizona’s highly touted shortstop prospect spent some time in the big leagues Geraldo Perdomo’s MLB debut arrived earlier than expected. The 21-year-old shortstop was recalled to the Arizona Diamondbacks from the alternate training site April 3 in place for Gold Glove shortstop Nick Ahmed, who was then placed on the 10-day Injured List. Perdomo made his big league debut later that night and went 1-for-10 at the plate before he was optioned back to the alternate training site April 10. For a prospect who never played above High-A Visalia...

How Diamondbacks fans see the Diamondbacks offense

“Gloomily” would be a good way to put it. Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in Arizona Diamondbacks fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts. According to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, 21 percent of Diamondbacks fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s down from 26 percent to start the season. A part of that lack of confidence comes from dark feelings about the team’s ability to score. Diamondbacks fans are generally down on the Arizona...

Carson Kelly and Asdrubal Cabrera continued to rake. Locastro stole another base. All of that for naught. A great first half of the game was spoiled by Arizona being unable to weather the bullpen allowing six runs over the final five innings.

Diamondbacks 5, A’s 7: Dog Day Afternoon

Diamondbacks 5, A’s 7: Dog Day Afternoon

Zac Gallen pitched four decent innings in his first start off the IL, and left with a 4-run lead. Then the bullpen happened. I gotta say I was pleasantly surprised to catch Zac Gallen’s first start of the season, though given how quickly he was back after that weird stress fracture in his arm, I wasn’t sure what to expect. While he wasn’t particularly sharp—no perfectly clean innings and big pitch counts in each inning he pitched—he still looked pretty good. So that was nice. After going up 0-2 on A’s leadoff batter Mark Canha, Gallen threw the next four pitches...
