  • The Diamondbacks say Walker has a right hand contusion after x-rays were negative Thursday, Jesse Friedman of GoPHNX.com reports.Walker was removed from Thursday’s Cactus League game against the Giants after being hit in the hand by a pitch. The first baseman suffered the injury in the fourth inning, but his day may have been finished anyway.
  • Diamondbacks’ Christian Walker: Exits game after HBP on hand Walker was removed from Thursday’s Cactus League game against the Giants after being hit in the hand by a pitch, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.Walker was struck by a 92-mph sinker in the fourth inning during his second trip to the plate. It’s possible he was going to be done for the day after the plate appearance, anyway, but the Diamondbacks weren’t going to take any chances. Walker could be sent for X-rays.
  • Diamondbacks’ Eugenio Suarez: Scratched with side tightness Suarez was scratched from Arizona’s lineup for Thursday’s Cactus League game against the Giants due to left side tightness, Jesse Friedman of GoPHNX.com reports.Manager Torey Lovullo said Suarez is day-to-day, so it doesn’t seem Suarez’s injury is too severe, but it will keep him out of game action nonetheless. Blaze Alexander will fill in as Arizona’s third baseman Thursday while Suarez recovers.
  • Diamondbacks’ Joc Pederson: Back in lineup Thursday Pederson (personal) will start in left field and bat fifth in Thursday’s Cactus League game against the Giants.Pederson was scratched from the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers after he left the team to attend to a personal matter, but he missed just a couple of days before returning to camp. Though he’ll be drawing the start in left field Thursday, Pederson is expected to primarily serve as a designated hitter versus right-handed pitching once the regular season gets underway.
  • Diamondbacks’ Zac Gallen: Sim game coming FridayRotowire  15 HRS AGOGallen is scheduled to throw a simulated game Friday, Steve Stockmar of MLB.com reports.Gallen is being brought along slowly this spring and has yet to throw in a Cactus League game. He threw a bullpen session Wednesday, about which manager Torey Lovullo said he looked great and “everything’s falling in line for him,” as Gallen preps to be the club’s starter Opening Day. Including Friday’s sim game, the right-hander will pitch in five games this spring.
