Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Ketel Marte went 2-for-4 with a home run Sunday against the Cubs. The dinger was a two-run home run, covering a distance of 383 feet, in the sixth inning off righty Jose Cuas. With the two hits in the contest, Marte is now slashing .274/.355/.483 in 540 trips to the plate. He's also launched 23 homers, recorded 77 RBI and swiped six bags in eight stealing attempts in the 2023 regular season.
Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Drey Jameson (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair his UCL, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. The 26-year-old has been out since early July with an elbow issue, and he'll surely miss all of the 2024 campaign. Over 15 appearances and three starts this year, Jameson posted a 3.32 ERA and 1.43 WHIP with 37 strikeouts across 40 2/3 innings. The former first-round selection also added one hold and one save to his ledger. Jameson wasn't relevant in most fantasy formats, so this news won't affect many fantasy managers.
Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Scott McGough is heading to the injured list Sunday with right shoulder inflammation, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. The 33-year-old was a factor in save situations earlier in the season, racking up five saves in June, but has been limited to a lower-leverage role recently. Overall, McGough has pitched to a 4.73 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 28.6% strikeout rate with nine saves and 14 holds across 70 1/3 innings. There's no timetable yet for the second-year player, but he'll undergo an MRI on Monday. Fantasy managers can check back in for more updates.
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Corbin Carroll is back in the starting lineup and hitting leadoff Thursday against the New York Mets and right-hander Kodai Senga. The lefty-swinging Carroll didn't start Wednesday's contest against Mets southpaw Joey Lucchesi but will take over in right field for Thursday's series finale. The 23-year-old has enjoyed a well-documented brilliant rookie campaign, hitting .279 with 24 home runs, 47 stolen bases, and an .866 OPS across 141 appearances on the season. Get him back into your starting lineups everywhere despite a tough matchup against Senga on the road.
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Corbin Carroll is getting a day off on Wednesday as the club takes on left-hander Joey Lucchesi and the New York Mets. Carroll could use the day off, too, as he's gone hitless in 10 at-bats with two strikeouts in the first two games of the series this week in New York. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. is starting in left field and batting fifth, while Jake McCarthy gets the start in center field and is hitting in the eight-hole. The 23-year-old Carroll is a front-runner to win the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2023, as he's currently slashing a strong .279/.358/.508 with an .866 OPS, 24 home runs, 69 RBI, 47 stolen bases and 103 runs scored in 506 at-bats in his first full season in the majors.
