Addison Reed tossed a perfect ninth inning on his way to registering his 23rd save in Sunday's defeat of the Cubs.

For the second time in as many days Reed was able to shut the door on the Cubs in the ninth inning as he starts off the second half on a high-note. Although he has been charged with five blown saves in 28 tries, the Diamondbacks continue to turn to Reed in the ninth inning, so unless he has a major meltdown he is going to be the guy to own the rest of the way. Not to mention his 44:10 K:BB rate over 39.2 innings is a nice compliment to his save total.

Josh Collmenter improved to 8-5 after giving up just one run on four hits and one walk while striking out one batter over seven innings on Sunday against the Cubs.

Collementer allowed just one run for the second consecutive start on Sunday as he improved to 8-5 on the season. Although he is not going to blow you away with his arsenal, Collmenter has pitched well enough to hold onto a spot in the Diamondbacks starting rotation while owning a 3.64 ERA and 1.24 WHIP through 111.1 innings between the bullpen and as a starter. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Phillies this weekend.

David Peralta went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Cubs.

Peralta logged his second multi-hit game of the second half on Sunday, as he now sits on a .331 average with three home runs, 18 RBI and 19 runs scored through his first 142 at-bats. He has managed to keep up the pace after coming out the gates firing, and should now start to gain some interest from those in deep league formats while continuing to get the job done as he gets regular playing time.

Cody Ross is day-to-day after leaving Saturday's game with tightness in his left calf.

Ross was absent from Sunday's starting lineup after suffering a calf injury in Saturday's tilt with the Cubs and the Diamondbacks have yet to determine when he will be ready to return to the starting lineup. even when fully healthy, there is little ti like form Ross up to this point as he has hit just two home runs with 11 RBI through his first 159 at-bats in 2014.

Mark Trumbo is not in the Diamondbacks starting lineup on Sunday.

Trumbo is batting just .167 in five games since returning from the disabled list. This is just a routine day off and he should be fine to start in weekly leagues. The home runs should start coming in bunches. David Peralta will bat second and play left field on Sunday for Arizona.

Cody Ross (left calf tightness) is questionable to play on Sunday.

Although Ross is dealing with a calf injury, whether healthy or not, the Diamondbacks have a crowded outfield, which has certainly not helped his case for playing time. Sitting on a .233 average with only two home runs and 11 RBI through 159 at-bats, Ross has no business being on a fantasy roster until he either starts seeing regular playing time or rediscovers his power stroke. At the age of 33, that may never happen.

Wade Miley improved to 6-6 on the season with the win over the Cubs Saturday where he allowed three runs with one walk and seven strikeouts over seven innings of work.

Miley won his third consecutive start despite some early struggles Saturday. He is now 3-0 with a 1.89 ERA and 29 strikeouts to just five walks over four starts (28.2 innings) this month and thus should be owned in 12 team or deeper mixed leagues already. His next start will be on Friday in Philly.

Paul Goldschmidt had a big day at the plate Saturday going 3-for-3 with a home run, a double, two walks, three RBI, and three runs scored in the 9-3 victory over the Cubs.

Goldy went yard for the second time in as many games and now has 18 on the season. The big fella even gets it done in the hustle department as he scored the DBacks first run of night as he motored his way from first to home on Miguel Montero base hit to center that was mishandled by rookie Arismendy Alcantra. There just seems to be nothing this guy does that isn't, shall we say golden.
