Meet the Arizona Diamondbacks’ 2022 Opening Day roster


Major League Baseball expanded rosters to 28 players with the accelerated ramp-up and shortened spring training in mind coming out of the lockout. The Arizona Diamondbacks have set their Opening Day roster for a Thursday outing against the San Diego Padres. First pitch is set for 6:40 p.m. on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station. Understandably, the team has gone pitcher-heavy with Zac Gallen most notably behind in his stretching out due to shoulder bursitis that delayed his spring preparation. Beyond that, infielders Nick Ahmed (shoulder inflammation) and Josh Rojas (oblique) begin the year fighting injuries.rwc
