Players to Watch:
For Tampa Bay, you’ll want to keep an eye on Chris Archer. The phenom is struggling immensely, owning a 4.75 ERA after an All-Star 2015 season with a 3.23 ERA. Evan Longoria, who many thought may have lost his touch, is on a power surge of late. The veteran third baseman hit five homers in the past week and was promptly awarded AL Player of the Week honors.
As for Arizona, let’s see if Jake Lamb and Paul Goldschmidt can keep up their hot streaks. Zack Greinke and Archie Bradley have turned around recently, as well. Greinke has worked to a 3.18 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in his last five starts, while Bradley has owned a 3.72 ERA since most recently being recalled from Triple-A Reno.
