Deven Marrero Hits First Homer As A D’Back, Except It Didn’t Actually Count

Published

on

Saturday night saw Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Deven Marrero hit his first home run with the team, a three-run shot off Dodgers southpaw Rich Hill.

One problem though; it wasn’t a three-run homer, but a two-run single instead.

How could this have possibly happened? See for yourself:

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts took note of Marrero passing teammate Alex Avila on the basepaths, appealed the play, and Marrero was called out.

Marrero’s base-running gaffe was in violation of Rule 5.09(b)(9), which states that a base-runner will be called out if he passes a preceding runner before such runner is out.

Pretty bizarre. Marrero’s first D’Back dinger will have to wait.

Marrero, 27, was acquired by Arizona from the Boston Red Sox on March 24.

Published

on

The Arizona Diamondbacks are re-signing right handed pitcher Randall Delgado on a minor league contract, according to the Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro.

Delgado was designated for assignment back in July and he has missed a big chunk of the 2018 season while recovering from an oblique injury that initially placed him on the 60-day disabled list, preventing him from officially starting his season until July.

A dip in velocity was noticed when Delgado returned, but he has a history of solid bullpen work with the Dbacks.
