    They need to keep Duplantier. Corbin is gone after this season and ARZ is going to pinching pennies this offseason.

    Really need him, Varsho & Ellis to pan out as our offense is in need of some young talent infusion for the future.

    Diamondbacks' Pavin Smith: Hitting .216 for Visalia
    by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
    Smith is slashing .216/.332/.359 with five home runs and two stolen bases across 196 plate appearances for High-A Visalia this season.


    Smith, the Diamondbacks' top overall selection in the 2017 first-year player draft, has been a disappointment thus far in his first taste of full-season ball. Though he has supplied two of his home runs in the last three games, Smith's .143 ISO for the season is still well below the threshold organizations typically look for from corner-infield prospects. While Smith's hit tool and excellent plate discipline more so than his power were the main draws when he came out of the University of Virginia, a .225 BABIP has mostly undermined the strengths of his batting profile. For all his struggles, the 22-year-old remains one of the top hitting prospects in the organization, but his standing in dynasty formats has probably dropped from where it was in the spring.

    Diamondbacks' Jon Duplantier: Battling biceps injury
    by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
    Duplantier is dealing with biceps tendinitis and will be shut down for a week, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic Arizona reports.


    Duplantier last pitched on May 27 and currently owns a strong 2.52 ERA over 35.2 innings with Double-A Jackson this season. He'll miss at least one turn through the rotation at the very least.

    Diamondbacks' Troy Scribner: Hits Triple-A disabled list
    by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
    Scribner was placed on Triple-A Reno's 7-day disabled list Friday with right shoulder inflammation.

    Scribner made a spot start for the big club May 12 when the Diamondbacks, but was optioned back to the minors after giving up two runs on four hits and six walks in 3.2 innings. The right-hander has maintained an underwhelming 5.11 ERA and 1.25 WHIP across 44 innings with Reno this season and seems unlikely to receive another look with Arizona even once the shoulder issue is behind him.

    Diamondbacks' Jon Duplantier: To resume throwing
    by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
    Duplantier (biceps) will attempt to throw Monday, Zach Buchanan of The Athletic Arizona reports.

    Duplantier has been shut down from throwing for the past week while attempting to recover from biceps tendinitis. Prior to suffering the injury, he'd made seven starts this season for Double-A Jackson, accruing a 2.52 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 41 strikeouts across 35.2 innings.

    Diamondbacks' Taylor Widener: Collects 12 strikeouts Wednesday
    by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
    Widener tallied a season-high 12 strikeouts and tossed six shutout innings for Double-A Jackson in its 11-3 triumph over Jacksonville on Wednesday.


    After logging only seven strikeouts in 11 innings over his previous two starts, Widener implemented a mechanical tweak in his bullpen session prior to Wednesday's outing, according to Rob Terranova of MiLB.com. The adjustment evidently paid dividends, as the right-hander mowed down the opposition in efficient fashion, yielding only five baserunners during the start and finishing the night with a 1-2-3 sixth inning. The 23-year-old now carries a 2.53 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 89:22 K:BB over 67.2 innings on the season, cementing his status as one of the top arms in the Diamondbacks organization.
