The upcoming series against the Tampa Bay Rays marks the second of three interleague series for the Diamondbacks in the month of June. The last one was the Astros series, which didn’t end well for the D-Backs

Any good news for Arizona can be found in Tampa Bay’s record. The team sits at the bottom of the AL East with a 25-30 record. Although they did not splurge in the offseason—history seems to indicate that they never will—the Rays are in a very similar situation as Arizona. Early-season pitching disappointments like Chris Archer and Matt Moore highlight what has been a poor season thus far down at Tropicana Field.
