Still no decision on the final roster spots. Will it be an outfielder? An 8-man bullpen? We will only know after the end of the last exhibition game tonight at Chase Field. Which is quite a contract to the sentiment expressed by Torey Lovullo on March 21:
"On the last few days of Spring Training, we don't want it to be a fire drill. We want it to be laid out so these guys can start to let their minds relax a little and get ready for Opening Day. So, it won't be the last day, it probably won't be the second to last day, but it will be sometime in the next week."
There’ll be no relaxing tonight for the likes of Silvino Bracho and Jeremy Hazelbaker, whose positions are apparently very much on the bubble. But let’s take a quick look at the overall spring stats for our hitters and pitchers. Combining performance and sample size, who produced best for the 2017 pre-season Arizona Diamondbacks?
- J.J. Hoover: 10 IP, 7 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 12 SO, 0.00 ERA
- Taijuan Walker: 27.1 IP, 28 H, 13 R, 10 ER, 2 BB, 32 SO, 3.29 ERA
- Tom Wilhemsen: 9.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 BB, 8 SO, 0.96 ERA
- Jake Lamb: 49 AB, .347/.418/.735 = 1.153 OPS, 4 HR, 14 RBI
- Brandon Drury: 59 PA, .356/.377/.593 = .970 OPS, 1 HR, 6 RBI
Chris Iannetta: 26 AB, .346/.438/.731 = 1.168 OPS, 1 HR, 4 RBI
Honorable mention: Reymond Fuentes: 18 AB, .556/.600/.944 = 1.544 OPS, 2 HR, 8 RBI
But after tonight, everything will be reset to zero. For next time - it counts...
