Jean Segura was originally scheduled to play second and bat lead-off, but was a late scratch, so Drury and Owings take over at those respective roles. No word at time of writing (10:20am!) of a reason for the change. Speaking of people not in the line-up, no Yasmany Tomas again, but Nick Piecoro reports the outfielder is scheduled to take batting practice today and then play on Thursday, albeit as our DH.

Grienke threw a pair of shutout innings with two strikeouts in his spring debut, and if the pattern sent by the other pitchers we've seen in their second go-around is followed, will likely throw three innings or about 50 pitches today, whichever is reached first. A bit surprised to see Stites listed as a pitcher today, considering he was re-assigned to minor-league camp earlier in the week? Would have thought they'd want to give the inning to someone still potentially contending for a spot. Oh, well: in Chip we trust.

There will be full coverage of this one, on Fox Sports Arizona, and a free radio webcast through the Diamondbacks site. So you've got no excuse. Unless you're working. :(
