Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Report 2009-05-16

--OF Gerardo Parra made his second start in his second game in the major leagues and played a big part in the D-backs' two-run first inning, tripling in 2B Felipe Lopez and scoring on a groundout by OF Justin Upton. Parra has a triple and a homer -- both in the first inning -- of his two starts. He played left field Friday after starting in center against Cincinnati on Wednesday.

--LHP Doug Davis made his fifth quality start of the season Friday while returning to the scene of his most emotional victory last year, when he beat Atlanta, 11-1, in Turner Field on May 23. Davis gave up five hits and one run in seven innings in his first game back after having a cancerous thyroid removed April 10.

--RHP Brandon Webb, who has not pitched since opening day because of shoulder soreness, played a light game of catch at Turner Field on Friday. It was the first time he had thrown a baseball since April 24, when he was shut down after continued shoulder soreness. Webb is tentatively scheduled to return in early June, although an exact date has not been defined.
