Arms for hire

Chicago's Wade Davis, Colorado's Greg Holland and Boston's Addison Reed all will enter free agency this offseason. Will any of these late-inning pitchers be in another uniform next season?

Law's AFL scouting notes: Questions about Yency Almonte

Almonte's fastball/slider combo alone would make him a prospect as a reliever, and there's nothing in the delivery that says he can't start. The quality of his third pitch remains to be seen, however.


Let it snow!

It looks like winter came early in Denver. Coors Field was covered in snow on Monday, a day on which the Rockies would have hosted the Dodgers for Game 3 of the NLDS if they had beaten the D-backs in the wild-card game on Wednesday.

Grandes Ligas anunció que completó la investigación del reloj utilizado por el coach e intérprete de los Diamondbacks, Ariel Prieto, en el dugout del equipo durante el partido por el Comodín de la Liga Nacional en Chase Field. MLB examinó el ‘Apple Watch' del Sr. Prieto y su teléfono celular y lo entrevistó. No se encontró ninguna prueba de que Prieto usó su reloj o teléfono celular para cualquier propósito en el dugout, ni tuvo ninguna comunicación relacionada con el béisbol en ninguno de sus dos dispositivos durante el juego del miércoles. A pesar de los hallazgos, el Sr. Prieto violó una norma de Grandes Ligas al tener el dispositivo en el dugout. Como resultado, el Sr. Prieto y los D-backs han sido multados por una suma que no fue revelada. La suma de la multa será donada a los esfuerzos para ayudar a los afectados por el huracán en Puerto Rico.

Bradley's stunning triple helps D-backs beat Rockies 11-8

Relief pitcher Archie Bradley hit a stunning two-run triple in the seventh inning, one of four three-baggers by Arizona that sent the Diamondbacks past the Colorado Rockies 11-8 in the National League wild-card game Wednesday night.

The National League's Wild Card game lived up to its label, as the Arizona Diamondbacks raced to a 6-0 lead, then survived a dramatic last few innings to hold off the Colorado Rockies 11-8. The Rockies had closed the gap to 6-5 when Arizona reliever Archie Bradley stunned everybody by nailing a two-run triple in the seventh to push the lead back to three. But hold on: In top of the eighth, Bradley gave up back-to-back homers to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story. But those were offset in the bottom of the inning by Arizona's three-run rally. Finally, Fernando Rodney gave up a run, but got the last three outs to send Arizona to the NLDS against the Dodgers. Game 1 is Friday in Los Angeles. Whew!

The crazy thing is that people that know nothing about park factors will think this is exactly kind of game we should have expected in the NL wild-card game. The Diamondbacks and Rockies are putting on a show.

Events unfolding rapidly in Phoenix. After the Rockies cut the lead to one, Archie Bradley becomes the first reliever to hit a postseason triple, and it drove in two big runs. But then Bradley gives up back-to-back homers to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story in the eighth. Now with the Diamondbacks hoping to extend their lead once again in the bottom of the inning, there's a sense of what is looming directly ahead: Fernando Rodney coming on to close it out.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Archie Bradley was one of the premier setup guys in the majors with a 1.73 ERA and just four home runs allowed. He just served up back-to-back homers to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story and the Rockies are again back in this crazy game. Get ready for the Fernando Rodney Experience in the ninth! Hey, he's actually been good since the beginning of May: 2.38 ERA .154 average allowed (but enough walks to make Diamondbacks fans very nervous).

El campocorto dominicano Ketel Marte se convirtió en el primer jugador en conectar dos triples en un solo partido de playoffs desde que fue logrado por su compatriota Mariano Duncan con los Filis de Filadelfia durante la Serie de Campeonato de la Liga Nacional en 1993.

Even if Arizona holds on in this one, and we have a long way to go, Zack Greinke's short outing has forced Torey Lovullo to turn to No. 2 starter Robbie Ray to try to hold the Rockies down. Meanwhile, Rockies skipper Bud Black has burned through Jon Gray and Tyler Anderson. Presumably, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is watching this one back in LA with a smile on his face.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Great job by Colorado's Chris Rusin to work around a one-out triple to Arizona's Ketel Marte with Paul Goldschmidt and J.D. Martinez due up. Marte has two triples in the game, becoming the first player with more than one in a postseason game since Mariano Duncan of the Phillies in 1993. Eight players have done it overall.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Arizona's Zack Greinke lasted just 3 2/3 innings for Arizona and threw 58 pitches. Both are easily the lowest totals of his 10 career playoff outings. Greinke has now allowed 14 runs over 11 2/3 innings over his last three outings, dating back to the regular season.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Zack Greinke is supposed to be an ace, but cruising with a 6-0 lead he allowed six hits in 10 plate appearances and the Rockies are shockingly back in the game. Credit to the Rockies for chipping away and not trying to hit a home run every at-bat -- a nice rally for a team that ranked 23rd in the majors in road OPS.

Ervin Santana. Luis Severino. Jon Gray. Zack Greinke. Your A.L. and N.L. Wild Card starting pitchers. The quartet lasted a grand total of 7 innings while allowing a combined 15 earned runs. Playoff baseball.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Just when it looked like the Diamondbacks were in the midst of a wild-card route, the Rockies chase Zack Greinke with four runs on five hits in the fourth. The last run was plated on an pinch-hit single from Alexi Amirista. Now Charlie Blackmon strides to the plate to face lefty reliever Andrew Chafin representing the tying run.

Arizona's Daniel Descalso has blown this one open, hammering a two-run shot off Colorado's Tyler Anderson in the third. For Descalso, that's three career playoff homers in 45 games. The first 44 postseason games came during his time with St. Louis. Descalso spent 2015 and 2016 with the Rockies.

El venezolano David Peralta y el dominicano Ketel Marte ambos se fueron de 2-2 en sus respectivos turnos en contra del abridor de los Rockies, Jon Gray, que se vio obligado a salir en la segunda entrada tras registrar sólo 4 outs. Peralta y Marte anotaron 2 de las 3 carreras remolcadas en la primera entrada por cuadrangular de Paul Goldschmidt. Peralta fue luego remolcado por un triple de Marte en el segundo inning para ampliar la ventaja de los DBacks a 4-0.

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Another night, another rough start: Rockies starter Jon Gray got only 4 outs in his postseason debut with the Rockies. Gray gave up a 3-run shot to Paul Goldschmidt for a Diamondbacks 3-0 lead in the first inning. He was taken out of the game in the bottom of the second inning, leaving two men in scoring position after recording just one out.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Colorado's Jon Gray is done in the second after Ketel Marte's RBI triple. Gray got just four outs. His stuff was there but the location was not. Paul Goldschmidt tagged him for a three-run bomb on a hanging curve up around the eyes. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Goldschmidt slugged .739 this season on pitches in the upper third of the zone and above.
