Diamondbacks line-up

  1. Gregor Blanco, CF
  2. Brandon Drury, 2B
  3. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
  4. Jake Lamb, 3B
  5. Chris Owings, DH
  6. Ketel Marte, SS
  7. Jeremy Hazelbaker, LF
  8. Oswaldo Arcia, RF
  9. Oscar Hernandez, C
    + RHP Taijuan Walker, RHP Kevin Jepsen, LHP Tom Wilhelmsen, RHP Enrique Burgos, RHP Evan Marshall, LHP Josh Taylor, RHP Jimmie Sherfy, RHP Erik Davis

First cuts of the season were made this morning, with four pitchers being re-assigned to minor-league camp, meaning the Diamondbacks now have 59 players left in camp. Gone are:

  • Miller Díaz, RHP
  • Joey Krehbiel, RHP
  • Yuhei Nakaushiro, LHP
  • Josh Taylor, LHP

No particular shocks in terms of those expected to make the team, while Diaz and Krehbiel both had double-digit ERAs. Perhaps a bit surprised Taylor and Nakaushiro were gone so quickly: the former had a pair of scoreless innings and the latter allowed one run over three frames. That does thin out the herd of potential left-handed relievers a bit though.

Walker makes his second start after a solid outing first time up, tossing a pair of scoreless innings, on two hits, with no walks and three strikeouts. This will also be the last we see of Goldschmidt in a Diamondbacks uniform for a bit, as he’ll be now heading off to join Team USA for the World Baseball Classic. The game can be heard on the radio, but note, it’ll be found on ESPN Phoenix 620.
