Steven Souza Jr. lost his footing while crossing home plate last night, in an exhibition game, and had to exit the game with a left knee injury. To make matters worse, outfielder Socrates Brito had already been placed on waivers because Arizona once again decided to go with three catchers on the roster. If Souza misses significant time, and Brito is claimed by another team Joe Jimenez Jersey , the D’backs depth will be tested early on.[Arizona Sports] New grass awaits Diamondbacks at Chase Field in 2019 - I can’t help but wonder if the new playing surface had anything to do with Souza losing his footing. I know that players slip on the bases occasionally, and it could have had more to do with his cleats and how he planted his foot. I’ll keep my tin hat in the pantry for right now.[AZ Central] How Archie Bradley, Yoshihisa Hirano will bridge the gap to closer Greg Holland for Diamondbacks - Not intending to pile on the bad news, but Archie Bradley and Yoshihisa Hirano combined to allow 7 hits and 5 earned runs in 1 & 1? innings last night. Those 5 runs allowed the White Sox to take the lead after trailing 3-1.[Arizona Sports] What can the Diamondbacks expect from new OF Adam Jones? - Suddenly, it appears that Adam Jones will earn more playing time in the outfield than initially expected pending the outcome of Souza’s injury. The team still has Jarrod Dyson on the roster , but was expecting Souza to provide meaningful offensive contributions to the middle of the lineup. [The Athletic] Could Paul Goldschmidt’s extension in St. Louis have worked in Arizona? - We will likely never know what conversations were had between Paul Goldschmidt and D’backs brass behind closed doors prior to him being traded. Goldy could have been so frustrated with his original contract that he and his agent set demands high during extension talks creating a hometown premium rather than a discount. Perceived market pressure on free agents of his age combined with being traded to a storied franchise may have resulted in his willingness to sign an extension now instead of testing the market.Around the League[] Here are the 1st Power Rankings of 2019 - The D’backs aren’t even in the top 20, so there is that.
