Ten D’backs suffering from stomach ailment

Ten Arizona Diamondbacks players and one coach missed spring training drills Sunday with unspecified stomach illnesses.

The team isn’t sure if the illness stems from something the players ate, a virus going around the clubhouse or some other factor.

“I’m not an authority on gastrointestinal conditions,” manager Bob Melvin said, but after talking with the team physician he expects all to return to practice Monday.

Some players fell sick Saturday night, others arrived at the clubhouse Sunday morning feeling sick and were sent home.

The 10 players who missed Sunday’s workouts were Justin Upton, Chris Young, Daniel Schlereth, Miguel Montero, Scott Schoenweis, Doug Slaten, Brooks Brown, Jon Coutlangus, Clay Zavada and John Hester.

Bullpen coach Glenn Sherlock was also sick.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
