As many of you know, I start my weekly farm report with the rookies playing at the major league level. After a week in which the Diamondbacks were swept in three games by the Los Angeles Dodgers and then had a sweep of their own against the San Francisco Giants, things are actually looking up.

Yasmany Tomas, 3B

5 GP, 5-19 with 2 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB, 3 K (.263/.300/.421, .721 OPS)

Nick Ahmed, SS

5 GP, 4-15 with 2 R, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 4 BB, 4 K (.267/.421/.267, .688 OPS)

Jake Lamb, 3B

5 GP, 4-15 with 1 R, 0 HR, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 3 K (.267/.353/.400, .753 OPS)

Archie Bradley, SP

More from Venom Strikes

A couple things you may notice from the stats, which are equally mirrored on the field, is that Jake Lamb and Yasmany Tomas are really playing comparable games right now. It’s clear that Tomas has the bigger bat and Lamb is a much more advanced fielder, but they are both playing like top five players on the team, so it should be of no surprise that both will continue to get a healthy number of at-bats. Robbie Ray had an interesting line with four each of hits, walks, and strikeouts; however, he pitched fairly well.
