The Diamondbacks currently stand at 3-2 through five spring training games. These five games have seen several encouraging and discouraging individual performances, though each of them mean literally nothing. Five spring training games will not tell you much about anyone, but hey: Baseball’s back, so let’s enjoy it.

RAD: 

Zack Greinke: Greinke tossed two scoreless frames against the A’s on Friday, allowing one hit and striking out two.

Jean Segura: Segura is 9-for-13 with one home run in four games.

Rickie Weeks: A week after signing a minor league deal, Weeks looks to be in the mix for the final Opening Day roster spot, going 5-for-12 with three doubles and three RBI in five games.

Welington Castillo: He’s picked up right where he left off last season. Castillo if 5-for-10 with three doubles and two home runs.

Robbie Ray: Ray has not allowed a run in five innings.

BAD: 

Shelby Miller: Miller allowed two runs on five hits in two innings against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Paul Goldschmidt:It looks like his MVP hopes could be over. Goldschmidt is just 3-for-11 so far. That’s not terrible but is also not up to Goldschmidt’s standards.

Tyler Wagner: Much like De la Rosa, Wagner allowed two runs on three hits in two innings on Friday, but managed to pick up the victory.

Zack Godley: Godley allowed six runs on seven hits in five innings.

A.J. Pollock: Pollock is 1-for-8 so far.
