Diamondbacks line-up

  1. Chris Owings RF
  2. A.J. Pollock CF
  3. Paul Goldschmidt 1B
  4. Yasmany Tomas LF
  5. Daniel Descalso 3B
  6. Nick Ahmed SS
  7. Kris Negron 2B
  8. J.R. Murphy C
  9. Taijuan Walker P

Our first look at the post-Souza landscape... and it’s Owings and Tomas who could either be the beneficiaries. CO is starting in right-field, but there’s no David Peralta in the line-up this evening, so Tomas is in the other corner. Hopefully, we’ll be able to negotiate the last week of spring training games without any further unfortunate accidents: if that means the players lolly-gagging around the outfield, rather than breaking themselves on max effort in meaningless games... I, for one, will be perfectly fine with that!

Tonight, it’s Walker on the mound, and it has been a while since he was seen in the Cactus League, his previous start having been back on March 10. He has seen back-field action in the interim, but with only one start left before the regular season, will need to be going a good bit longer than the two innings he pitched against the Royals. This game is being webcast on dbacks.com, so you can tune in there.
