Injuries & Moves: Davies (shoulder) to IL

June 29th, 2022

Keep track of the D-backs’ injury and roster updates throughout the season.


June 28: RHP Zach Davies (right shoulder inflammation) placed on the 15-day IL; RHP Sean Poppen recalled from Triple-A
Davies has been one of the D-backs' better starters this year and leaves a hole in the rotation. Poppen was optioned to Reno over the weekend to make room for LHP Dallas Keuchel, who joined the rotation to take the place of the injured Humberto Castellanos. Poppen had been one of manager Torey Lovullo’s trusted relief arms, going 1-1 with a 2.91 ERA in 22 appearances. -- Steve Gilbert


10-day and 15-day IL

RHP Zach Davies (right shoulder inflammation)
Expected return:
Davies was signed by the D-backs to a free-agent deal during Spring Training. He's gone 2-4 with a 3.94 ERA in 15 starts this season. His last outing came on June 25, when he allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits over five innings. -- Steve Gilbert (Last updated: June 28)

60-day IL

SS Nick Ahmed (right shoulder soreness)
Expected return:
Spring Training 2023
Ahmed underwent right shoulder surgery and will miss the remainder of the 2022 regular season. Ahmed said he had two bone spurs removed and that doctors cleaned up his bursa and rotator cuff tendons and also repaired his labrum. -- Steve Gilbert (Last updated: June 17)

RHP Humberto Castellanos (right elbow strain)
Expected return:
Castellanos went on the injured list June 1, a day after he allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Braves. Manager Torey Lovullo said he could tell that "something wasn't feeling right" for the right-hander when he removed him from that outing, sending him to the training staff. Castellanos threw for the first time since the injury on June 16 and reported no discomfort, per Lovullo. -- Steve Gilbert (Last updated: June 17)

RHP J.B. Bukauskas (teres major)
Expected return: TBD
Bukauskas threw a bullpen on June 17 and is expected to throw a live batting practice session on June 21. -- Steve Gilbert (Last updated: June 17)
