OF Yasmany Tomas (.241, 8 HR, 32 RBIs) has missed half of the season with a troublesome groin injury that won't seem to heal. He was pulled out of a rehabilitation assignment last month when he aggravated the injury. Manager Torey Lovullo said Tomas is having trouble with"the pounding of running" and making turns. Tomas took some at-bats during LHP Robbie Ray's simulated game Saturday and may be closer to returning - though, during his absence, the Diamondbacks acquired RF J.D. Martinez. "He took some good swings off him and base ran afterward," Lovullo said. "We want to get him in a game as soon as possible. When it's trending toward that, I don't exactly know now."
