The Arizona Diamondbacks shocked all of Major League Baseball by winning 93 games en route to a postseason berth last season. Their season was cut short in the National League Division Series, but the D-backs have plenty to look forward to in 2018. Manager Torey Lovullo, the reigning National League Manager of the Year, will look to guide the Diamondbacks back to the postseason once again.
The Diamondbacks high powered offense was fifth in the National League in hits, runs, and home runs last season. Throw in the return of a healthy Yasmany Tomas to join A.J. Pollock in the outfield, and this lineup becomes even deeper. Paul Goldschmidt is one of Major League Baseball’s elite hitters, consistently finishing towards the top of the NL MVP voting. Goldschmidt led the Diamondbacks in hits, home runs, RBIs, OBP, and WAR last season, continuing his excellence as the team’s best player and leader. Jake Lamb has also burst onto the scene as one of the best third basemen in the league, as he hit 30 home runs while knocking in 105 RBIs last season as an All-Star. Despite losing outfielder J.D. Martinez to free agency, the D-backs are well poised to be a juggernaut offensively once again in 2018.
Arizona’s pitching was the main reason behind their surprising run towards October baseball last season. Zack Greinke pitched like the ace he has been throughout his career, and southpaw Robbie Ray had a breakout season. Robbie Ray earned a spot in the All-Star Game and won 15 games with a sub-3.00 ERA and 200+ strikeouts. Backend starters Taijuan Walker and Zack Godley were both better than anyone had anticipated, and Patrick Corbin was solid throughout the year as well. The emergence of Robbie Ray and the depth that formed behind Greinke and Ray was a pleasant surprise for the Diamondbacks. Reliever Archie Bradley was dominant all season, helping bridge the gap towards closer Fernando Rodney late in games.
