On July 26, 1999 — The Diamondbacks bring up Mexican star Erubiel Durazo, 25, to replace slumping 1B Travis Lee. Durazo, whose contract was purchased from the Monterrey Sultans last December after he hit .350, tore up the minors (AAEl Paso Diablos, .403, 14 home run in 64 games; AAA Tucson Sidewinders, .407, 10 home run, 30 G). He’ll do the same in the National League hitting .329, with 11 homers, in 52 games.
