Shelby Miller's MRI showed no further damage to his injured elbow.

Despite this, Miller be shut down for at least another week. The right-hander has struggled mightily since coming back from Tommy John surgery (0-4, 11.40 ERA) and landed on the DL with renewed elbow inflammation prior to the All-Star break. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him for any significant contributions down the stretch.

Diamondbacks SS prospect Jasraldo Chisolm went 5-for-6 with a pair of homers and five RBI on Monday for Low-A Kane County.

Chisolm's pair of homers give the 20-year-old shortstop 15 on the season. He also scored four runs, and his OPS is up to .783 on the season. Chisholm is one of the top prospects in the Arizona system; a shortstop who is a well above-average defender at a premium position, and there's obviously some offensive potential here, too. He's years away, but he offers a high-floor because of his position, and some ceiling because of his sneaky power from the left side.

Jon Jay went 1-for-4 with a homer in a loss to the Braves on Sunday.

It was the only run scored by the Diamondbacks, as Julio Teheran and the Atlanta bullpen breezed through the Arizona lineup. The homer was Jay's second on the year, and it came off of Dan Winkler in the eighth inning. Jay has mostly struggled since coming over from the Royals in a trade, hitting .223/.318/.323 in the National League.

Patrick Corbin picked up a loss on Sunday while allowing four runs in six innings against the Braves.

Corbin allowed six hits and one walk, and he struck out just three. A disappointing final start of the first half for Corbin, who has been outstanding for the majority of his starts in 2018. He still takes a strong 3.24 ERA into the All-Star break, and he's struck out an impressive 149 hitters in 122 1/3 innings. Corbin will likely start on Friday or Saturday after the break, but his exact position in the rotation to begin the second half has yet to be announced.

Jeff Mathis went 2-for-4 and drove in a run during a 3-0 triumph over the Braves on Saturday.

He smoked a double to deep left field that plated Chris Owings in the fourth inning. The light-hitting catcher was the only Diamondback to notch more than one hit in the low-scoring ballgame. The 35-year-old journeyman catcher has been one of the worst batters in the major leagues ever since his first game back in 2005. His career OPS is .564 and he shouldn't be anywhere near fantasy lineups even in two-catcher leagues.

Brad Boxberger struck out three batters in a scoreless ninth inning to earn a save against the Braves on Saturday.

He allowed a single to Nick Markakis but fanned the other three batters he faced in the heart of the Braves' batting order. It was the closer's 24th save of the season to go with a 3.06 ERA. He's pitched quite well this year but his leash isn't terribly long because the team's three setup men have been lights out all year.
Jul 14 - 8:39 PM

Zack Greinke hurled 7 2/3 scoreless innings to earn an impressive win over the Braves on Saturday.

He punched out seven batters without issuing a walk and surrendered just four base hits in the sterling outing. His only disappointment was that he didn't get a hit in three chances (he entered the game with a .294 batting average). The win moved him to 10-5 with a 3.18 ERA in 20 starts. He has a marvelous 124:23 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 121 2/3 innings. He will be in the nation's capital for the All Star game next week.
Jul 14 - 8:34 PM

Jake Lamb is absent from the Diamondbacks' starting lineup for Saturday's showdown against the Braves.

It's a regular day of rest for Lamb. Chris Owings will start in his place at third base and bat seventh for the Diamondbacks against Sean Newcomb and the Braves.
Jul 14 - 1:43 PM

Brad Boxberger struck out the side for his 23rd save of the season Friday against the Braves.

Boxberger threw 14 pitches and got all three strikeouts swinging. The 30-year-old hit a bit of a rough patch about a month ago, but he’s converted seven straight save chances and hasn’t allowed a hit in five appearances this month.
Jul 14 - 12:49 AM

Zack Godley spun six innings of one-run ball in Friday’s 2-1 victory over the Braves.

It looked like he was going to have to settle for a no-decision, but the Diamondbacks scored in the top of the seventh inning to put him in line for the win. Godley gave up five hits and walked just one batter, with the only run scoring on an RBI single from Kurt Suzuki in the first inning. He struck out seven batters while inducing 18 swinging strikes in 95 pitches. It has been a disappointing first half for Godley (4.61 ERA), partially due to poor control, but he has issued just one walk in each of his last two starts.
Jul 14 - 12:49 AM

Nick Ahmed went 2-for-4 with a double and a go-ahead RBI single in Friday’s win over the Braves.

After the Diamondbacks tied the game in the sixth inning, Ahmed put them ahead with a single against Dan Winkler in the seventh. The 28-year-old has mostly cooled off since a red-hot start to the year, but he’s hitting .327 (18-for-55) over his last 14 games. It’s just tough to get excited about him outside of deeper fantasy leagues, though.
Jul 14 - 12:48 AM

Shelby Miller (elbow) plans to seek a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed his Tommy John surgery last season.

The good news here, is that the initial indications are that Miller hasn't suffered a new tear of his UCL. It still sounds like he could be sidelined for awhile though. More will be known after that exam, but fantasy owners in redraft leagues may just want to consider cutting bait at this point.
Jul 13 - 6:53 PM

Robbie Ray lost to the Rockies after allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings and striking out eight at Coors Field on Thursday.

That should be good enough for a win at Coors more often than not, but the Diamondbacks offense didn't have it today. Last time Ray pitched, the Diamondbacks offense crushed it, scoring 20 runs against the Padres, but it was Ray that was bad on that day, resulting in a no-decision in a game in which he pitched 4 1/3 innings. Obviously, the oblique injury that cost him nearly two months threw a wrench into things, but Ray just hasn't shown any consistency while healthy this year. He has a 5.03 ERA in his 10 starts.
Jul 12 - 6:41 PM

John Ryan Murphy went 0-for-4 Thursday in his first start in six days.

The Diamondbacks don't want to play Murphy if he's not hitting, so he's not going to get the consistent at-bats that might allow him to turn it around. Now that Alex Avila is back, Murphy seems droppable in two-catcher mixed leagues.
Jul 12 - 6:37 PM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Silvino Bracho from Triple-A Reno.

Bracho will return to the Diamondbacks' bullpen ahead of Thursday afternoon's series finale at Coors Field. The 25-year-old right-hander has registered a sharp 1.72 ERA, 0.83 WHIP, and 22/5 K/BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings this season at the major league level.
