Players to Watch:
The Diamondbacks hope Welington Castillo and Brandon Drury can continue their early production. Against a weak pitching rotation, perhaps Paul Goldschmidt can get back on track, as the slugger owns only a .232 batting average to date. On top of it all, it will be interesting to see if Jean Segura’s early offensive surge is affected at all by his nagging hip flexor injury in his first days back.
For the Braves, former Diamondbacks prospect Aaron Blair will make his third start of the season for Atlanta. Ender Inciarte, also included in the package for Shelby Miller, is expected back from the Disabled List this weekend. It will be very interesting to see how much of an impact the two can have against their former organization.
