PHOENIX — Daniel Hudson gave up six runs and retired one batter in his two recent appearances in Denver, numbers sufficient to make an ERA skitter Rocky Mountain-high. His sits at 3.38.

Greinke has already allowed more earned runs than last year

  Zack Greinke’s 2015 season was historic on many levels.

His 2016 season, however, got off to a bit of a shaky start. While he has […] Greinke has already allowed more earned runs than last year - Venom Strikes - Venom Strikes...

Finding Another Brad Ziegler

In a land where few pitchers succeed, the consistent dominance of Brad Ziegler is positively tantalizing. Since Ziegler’s first full season with the D-backs, Ziegler has managed a 2.52 ERA, 20th among the 160 relievers with at least 150 innings in that span, and second to just Josh Collmenter on the team. But ERA is ill-equipped to measure the value …

Where Did Our Patrick Corbin Go?

There’s no denying that the signing of Zack Greinke and the trade for Shelby Miller took the pitching spotlight off of Patrick Corbin.
