Seahawks running back C.J. Prosise has appeared in just 11 games in two seasons in Seattle as multiple injuries have kept him watching from the sidelines.

Prosise hopes to show he can be durable and available in his third season with the Seahawks.

鈥淚 just know what I can do c , I know the impact I have on the game when I鈥檓 out there,鈥?Prosise said, via Michael-Shaun Dugar of the Athletic. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 the thing that really hurt me because, through everything 鈥?the community stuff, like I said, that鈥檚 my passion 鈥?when I鈥檓 out there on the field, and I鈥檓 making a big play or I鈥檓 scoring a touchdown, that鈥檚 the best feeling I can ever have. I want that feeling all the time.鈥?/p>

Prosise has had hamstring and groin strains, a fractured scapula and a pair of ankle sprains and a broken wrist bone that’s kept him out of 21 regular season games Chuck Foreman Jersey , four preseason games and two playoff games. He hired a full-time personal trainer to help get him in better shape to attempt to avoid the types of injuries that have hampered him in the past.

鈥淗is body just wasn鈥檛 ready to take on that type of stress and responsibility,鈥?Prosise’s trainer Kevin Allen said. 鈥淣ow, he鈥檚 a totally different being. He鈥檚 ready. He鈥檚 225 (pounds) solid. Running stronger than ever. Quick as ever. More powerful than ever. It鈥檚 not going to be a hit-C.J.-and-he-fall-down type thing no more. Hit C.J., and you better wrap him up 鈥?because he鈥檚 225 solid. It鈥檚 not 225 fluff.鈥?/p>

Prosise has been a promising piece when he has been able to see the field. He had 153 yards of offense in a win in New England in 2016. He then broke a 72-yard touchdown run against the Philadelphia Eagles the next week before fracturing his shoulder-blade and missing the rest of the season.

But Prosise’s lack of availability has forced Seattle to load up on additional options. Chris Carson, Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis fill the more traditional running back mold while J.D. McKissic provides the receiving back alternative. Prosise will have to show he can stay on the field or risk Seattle moving on at the end of training camp.

The Arizona Diamondbacks open a four-game series Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and by the time they move on to Miami, their rotation could look different. As in, more intact.

Right-hander Zack Godley (7-5, 4.77 ERA) is scheduled to face Pittsburgh righty Ivan Nova (4-5 Brandon Williams Jersey , 4.42) in the opener and, in fact, the Diamondbacks (40-33) have starters penciled in all four games against the Pirates (36-37).

But starters Shelby Miller (Tommy John surgery) and Robbie Ray (strained right oblique) appear close to returning, particularly Miller.

“He’s getting close,” Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said of Miller. “With these outings and the feedback he’s giving us, he’s telling us that he’s getting closer every day.”

One possibility is that Miller will replace Matt Koch, who allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in a 5-4 loss against the Angels.

“Yet to be determined,” Lovullo said. “We’re going to huddle up and have some conversations … and figure out what the next course of action.”

In the meantime, Godley is 2-0 with a 2.92 ERA over his past two starts. That includes a 7-3 win Friday against the New York Mets when he gave up two runs in 6 2/3 innings.

“I had to fight through myself pretty much for the first three innings and then after that kind of settled in a little bit and got some quick outs and was able to go deep into the game Shareece Wright Jersey ,” Godley said. “I was just kind of fighting myself body-wise, just kind of not finishing some of my pitches and leaving some up and in on righties and up and away on lefties.”

Getting through that impressed Lovullo.

“He’s battling himself,” Lovullo said of Godley’s early innings in that game. “He can’t duplicate pitches, and he just made some key pitches at the right time. … So, when you see things like that when a guy doesn’t have his best stuff, that’s what sticks out for me. Pretty impressive.”

Godley is 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA in two appearances, one start, against Pittsburgh.

The Diamondbacks, who were off Wednesday Micah Hyde Jersey , have won eight of their past 12 games. That includes taking two of three last week when the Pirates visited Chase Field.

Pittsburgh last lost two home games in a row against Arizona but had won six in a row before that.

The Pirates have won four of six after getting an impromptu day off Wednesday — their game against Milwaukee was postponed after a rain delay of more than two hours.

Nova, like Godley, is coming off two good starts, going 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA since he came off the disabled list (sprained finger).

On Saturday, he struggled with his curveball but it didn’t stop him from allowing just one run and five hits in six innings in a 6-2 win over Cincinnati.

“Even though I walked a couple guys, the fastball command is better than what it was before I hit the DL,” Nova said. “I think I’ve been able to control it a bit better. I think that’s been the key.”

Nova is 1-1 with a 4.00 ERA in three career starts against the Diamondbacks.

Pittsburgh will be without starting left fielder Corey Dickerson for at least the start of the series. He is on family leave.
