Spring Training Game #20 Gameday Thread

The last chance to see Archie Bradley before the team heads off to Australia is this afternoon at Salt River Fields, in a game which should also see the Diamondbacks debut of left-handed reliever Oliver Perez.

Can Bradley extend his scoreless streak further? It'll be interesting if he does, considering Kevin Towers' statements before the pre-season started, for instance, "If Archie Bradley is one of our best five, he'll start the season come Opening Day." Another outing like his first two, and it will become even harder to argue he's not in that top five starting pitchers for the Diamondbacks. But will that be enough? It may depend on what happens with Bronson Arroyo's balky back. Also this afternoon, we should get to see Oliver Perez take the field in a D-backs jersey. Hopefully, there'll even be a photo so I can stop using ones of him in a Mariners uniform. :)
