The D-backs are returning to camp.

After 99 days of uncertainty, debates and delays, the MLB Lockout came to an end on Thursday. Players on the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 40-man roster resumed training at Salt River Fields on Friday. It was a day D-backs utility man Josh Rojas has been longing for. “We’ve been waiting for this one for a while,” said Rojas. “It’s good we got...

On Wednesday — despite reports that owners and the Players Association were closer than ever to a new collective bargaining agreement — MLB announced they would be removing another week of games from the schedule through April 14.

Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick at Chase Field.

When Major League Baseball made its “best and final” collective bargaining proposal to the MLB Players Association on Tuesday, not all owners were on board. According to The Athletic’s Evan Drellich, there were four detractors: Angels’ owner Arte Moreno, Reds owner Bob Castellini, Tigers owner Chris Ilitch and Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick. Of course, the MLBPA unanimously voted against the...

MLB cancels games after labor negotiations end in a stalemate

After a 16-hour negotiating session on Monday and a much less productive day on Tuesday, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced the cancellation of the first two series of regular season games for each team in baseball. The games will not be made up. “I had hoped against hope I would not have to have this particular press conference in which...

D-backs prospect Alek Thomas at Salt River Fields

On a rainy Wednesday morning, media covering the Arizona Diamondbacks’ minor league mini camp huddled inside of a 20′ x 40′ party tent at Salt River Fields intended for socially-distanced team meetings to get a reprieve from the elements and to hear from one young man many consider to be the future of the franchise. D-backs No. 3 ranked prospect...

Zac Gallen pitches as the Diamondbacks face the Dodgers at Chase Field.

In July 2019, Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen made the most fascinating trade of his tenure when he dealt highly-touted shortstop prospect Jazz Chisholm to the Miami Marlins in exchange for right-handed pitcher Zac Gallen. Most fans had the same reaction: Zac who? Gallen’s anonymity didn’t last long. Just over a year after the D-backs acquired him, Gallen broke the...

With the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 25th anniversary right around the corner, it’s hard not to acknowledge the impact this franchise has made in their short history. They achieved success and reached the pinnacle of baseball faster than any expansion team before them in sports. They also looked damn good doing it. Whether it was the OG Purple & Teal or the Sedona Red days, the D-backs haven’t shied away from unique uniform combinations that represent both the state and the team. Specialty jerseys aside — such as Players Weekend and holidays — we take a look at the best and the worst designs in club history. T22.)

Dan Straily signed a minor league deal with the Diamondbacks.

Is it possible to make a splash in minor league free agency? That sounds like an oxymoron. But heck, we’re in a lockout. Any transaction that could impact a major league roster in 2022 is a splash. Speaking of which, the Diamondbacks have reportedly signed 33-year-old righty Dan Straily to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training. All...
