Kevin Towers may loose his Powers

Kevin Towers speaks at a Diamondbacks press conference (photo courtesy of bleacherreport.com)   His contract may have been extended to stay beyond 2014, but after a very shaky start to a season in which two key pitchers Patrick Corbin, and David Hernandez were lost due to season ending elbow surgery, (Tommy John Surgery)  it does not bode well for Arizona Diamondbacks general...

(Rick Scuteri/USA Today Sports)   Kevin Towers has stated that he doesn’t want Archie Bradley to be thrown into a situation where he is viewed as the savior of the rotation.

By many professional accounts, however, Bradley was not ready to bring his 99 mph fastball into a major league clubhouse at the end of spring training, and the D-backs believe that is still the case three weeks later.  The promotion of right...

History says Australia series will decide playoff berth

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks' trip to Australia could be much more than a photo op on Bondi Beach or a chance to sample a pint of James Boag's lager, Kevin Towers' favorite Tasmanian brew (grade on the scouting scale: 80).
