D-backs general manager Mike Hazen signed Madison Bumgarner to a five-year contract in 2019.

Entering his sixth season with the team, Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen has dished out major league contracts to 24 free agents for a total of just over $204 million. That’s $2 million less than the team spent on Zack Greinke the year before Hazen’s arrival, but the Greinke deal was an exception. The D-backs may never give that kind...

He doesn’t get an inordinate number of strikeouts or groundballs. But what he’s done for the Diamondbacks since joining the team in 2019 is more significant than you think. For starters, Kelly’s journey...

Former D-backs bullpen member Tyler Clippard pitches in October of 2021 at Chase Field.

Since joining Major League Baseball in 1998, the Diamondbacks have held their own with a World Series title, five division titles and even a Hall-of-Fame pitcher wearing their logo on his way to Cooperstown. There’s one thing the D-backs have almost never gotten right in their time as a big league franchise: the bullpen. We saw this firsthand in 2021,...

With the two sides reportedly far apart in negotiations, a lockout is all but certain. It would be Major League Baseball’s first work stoppage since 1995. There are likely several...
