Players to watch:
For the Diamondbacks, Greinke and Miller are the obvious choices. They were the two biggest acquisitions of the offseason and the two best pitchers on the team.
Chip Hale also said that Socrates Brito and Chris Owings will get time in center in lieu of A.J. Pollock. Both players had solid springs, so it will be interesting to see who plays well– and who will end up with the lion’s share of the playing time.
On the Colorado side, Charlie Blackmon will be someone to look out for. He is a 7-for-23 lifetime hitter against Zack Greinke 4-for-12 lifetime against Shelby Miller and 5-for-15 against Patrick Corbin. He could be in for a good series.
