Players to Watch

Justin Upton: Once again, Upton returns to Chase Field as a visitor. The former Diamondback farmhand is a career .306 hitter with eight home runs in 30 career games.

Miguel Cabrera: Cabrera is one of the greatest hitters of my generation. Regardless of performance, he will always be a player to watch. In 41 career games against Arizona, he is batting .358 with 11 home runs. The Tigers first-baseman has been even better at Chase Field batting .411 in 19 career games.

Nick Castellanos: Castellanos is one of the most underrated hitters in baseball. The Tigers third baseman is once again near the top of baseball’s hard-hit leaderboard.

Paul Goldschmidt: Goldschmidt is locked in and he has hit better at Chase Field compared to on the road. Goldy is fourth in the majors in on-base percentage.

A certain trio: Brandon Drury, Jake Lamb and Yasmany Tomas each had abysmal road trips. They hit in the middle of the order and need to start contributing again this homestand.
