Arizona Diamondbacks 2015 News and Updates
4/15/15 - After winning their 3 game series against the Rangers 2-1, the Arizona Diamondbacks have won one and lost one against the Padres, with one game left in this three game series. The teams first met on April 13, where the Padres won 8-4. Ender Inciarte knocked in four runs to help the Diamondbacks secure the victory over the Padres. Rubby De La Rosa was on the mound for the Diamondbacks, allowing three runs in his six innings of play. The next day, the teams met once again, with the Padres winning 1-5. Arizona's sole run came from a RBI by Mark Trumbo. They meet once again on April 15, before Arizona heads to San Francisco to meet with the Giants. Tickets are still available, with prices starting at $7.
4/10/15 - The Arizona Diamondbacks opened their season with a series of games against the San Francisco Giants. Out of the three games played, the D-backs were able to take home one win. Their home opener game on April 6 ended in a 4-5 loss for the Diamondbacks. Both teams scored in the third inning, but it was the fifth inning that set the Giants apart from Arizona. The Giants were able to bring in four runs against Josh Collmenter, the Diamondbacks pitcher. Even though the D-backs pulled off three runs in the ninth inning, it just wasn’t enough to add another win to their record. See how they do when they face off against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 10 at the Chase Field. Tickets are still available starting at $9.
3/26/15 - Both the fans and the team members of the Arizona Diamondbacks are ready to start regular season play. The Diamondbacks are working hard and getting into the teamwork groove right now at spring training. On March 26, 2015 the Diamondbacks hit the field to compete against the San Diego Padres. The starting pitcher for the Padres, Brandon Morrow, was benched due to a blister on his hand and was replaced by backup pitcher Ordisamer Despaigne. It was looking as if the Padres would walk away with the win, leading the game 3-1 to start the eighth inning. However, Brett Wallace slammed one home during the bottom of the eighth bringing in two runs for the Diamondbacks that tied the game. Watch them play against the Kansas City Royals on March 29. Tickets start at $15.
3/18/15 - With just over two weeks remaining until MLB’s Opening Day, the Arizona Diamondbacks are looking like a team set on turning the page after their last-place finish in the 2014 season, currently ranked third in the Cactus League with a record of 10-6. They picked up another spring training win on Wednesday, 6-2 over the Colorado Rockies. After missing over two seasons due to a pair of reconstructive elbow surgeries and returning last year as a reliever, RHP Daniel Hudson pitched two innings for a third time this month, as he continues his quest to return to the starting rotation. Arizona will take on the Rockies once again on Sunday afternoon, and you can pick up seats for Salt River Fields in Scottsdale for as low as $22!
3/9/15 - In the National League, the Arizona Diamondbacks lead the teams with a 5-1 record. They’re behind the Kansas City Royals (6-0) in the Cactus League. In Monday’s game against the Chicago White Sox, the Diamondbacks tied at 3-3. Arizona led the game at 2-0 until Chicago tied it up in the bottom of the seventh. Arizona’s upcoming games on their home turf during spring training feature the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday (3/12). Two days later, on Saturday, they host the Seattle Mariners in the afternoon. In an evening game, it’s the San Francisco Giants. Monday (3/16) brings the Chicago White Sox to Salt River Fields in Scottsdale. Tickets start at $21 for these games. Get your tickets now to see your Diamondbacks play some great baseball.
3/2/15 - When you’re watching the Arizona Diamondbacks in spring training games this week, you’ll see a black patch with the word “Kayla” on it. They are honoring the memory of Kayla Mueller, a young woman from Arizona who died in Syrian captivity. As the Cactus League opens on Thursday, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to come out and see how the D-Backs are shaping up. On Friday (3/6), they face the Oakland Athletics. The San Francisco Giants are next on Sunday (3/8). On Wednesday (3/11), the Los Angeles Angels join the D-Backs on Salt River Fields. Tickets for any of these games start at $19. If you’re in the Scottsdale, Arizona area, you have to come out and cheer for your team. It’s a great afternoon of fun.
2/23/15 - The Diamondbacks' pitchers and catchers started spring training last week and the rest of their team joined them on Feb. 24th. The season is just around the corner, but many are skeptical of Arizona's chances. They finished last in the 2014 season, but fans are very hopeful for the Arizona Diamondback in 2015. Peter O'Brien, Brandon Drury, and Socrates Brito are three new additions to the team that could really impress this season. You will not have to wait very long to see if their new team members will make a difference, because the first game of the preseason in less than a week away. Catch the D-backs as they play the Arizona State University Sun Devils on March 3rd. Tickets start at only $12.
2/5/15 - As the 2015 season quickly approaches, the Arizona Diamondbacks are getting ready for action. Their first game will be on April 6th, against the San Francisco Giants at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. If you want to celebrate the new season right from the first day, you can catch the Diamondbacks' home opener for as little as $17. Alternatively, if you just cannot wait until April, the preseason starts for Arizona on March 3rd. The Diamondbacks will be playing the Arizona State Sun Devils on Salt River Fields in Scottsdale. You can get seats for that game for even less, with tickets starting at $8. There is a game for you to catch nearly every day until the season starts. Also be sure to keep an eye on the pitchers and catchers report on Feb. 19th and 20th.
9/25/14 - As the 2014 season winds to a close, the Arizona Diamondbacks are continuing their front-office moves, naming former Oakland pitcher Dave Stewart, a multiple 20-game winner in the Bash Brothers days, as the club’s new senior vice-president and general manager, replacing Kevin Towers; and broke the club’s “connection” with the Detroit Tigers by announcing the firing of manager Kirk Gibson and bench coach Alan Trammell, teammates on the 1984 Tigers squad that led wire-to-wire and won the World Series that year. Stewart, the fourth general manager in D-backs history, joins Billy Beane, Ruben Amaro Jr. and Jerry DiPoto as general managers who were former MLB players.
9/19/14 - This weekend’s series with Colorado will be the last divisional games the Arizona Diamondbacks play this season; the Snakes will continue on for a three-game set with Minnesota, before returning home for the final weekend of the year against St. Louis. Leading starter Josh Collmenter is projected to have two more starts to add to his team leading victory total of 10; he also has a team best ERA of 3.60, while Wade Miley leads with 173 strikeouts. Off the field, the Diamondbacks interviewed Allard Baird, currently in the Boston front office, for the vacant general-manager position, while Texas assistant GM Thad Levine withdrew his name from consideration for the position.
9/12/14 - As a disappointing season for the Arizona Diamondbacks draws to a close, the team has to be aware of where they stand – currently tied for last place in the National League West with San Diego. And, with their offensive engine, Paul Goldschmidt, recovering from a broken hand that resulted from a hit-by-pitch; and the search for a new general manager in the wake of the dismissal of Kevin Towers, the Snakes will have to look to the future by default. It appears as though the D-backs are looking well south of the border for an infusion of talent, as Venezuela has been a source of a number of players lately – the latest being Ender Inciarte; and the team eyeing Cuban exile Yasmany Tomas as well.
9/5/14 - The Arizona Diamondbacks look to start shaking things up even before the end of the 2014 regular season; just two seasons removed from their last appearance in the Nationals League playoffs, the club announced the firing of general manager Kevin Towers. The move was widely expected after the club signed former longtime manager Tony LaRussa as their chief baseball officer earlier in the year, and he was expected to evaluate the entire front office. Towers previously spent 14 seasons as San Diego’s general manager; a number of candidate names are being floated as his replacement, including Dave Stewart, a former pitcher for LaRussa while he was manager in Oakland during the “Bash Brothers” days.
8/29/14 - Entering the final month of the season, the Arizona Diamondbacks, even though not in last place in their division, have fallen to become one of the least-successful teams in Major League Baseball in 2014. With a record of 55-78 going into the final weekend of August, the D-backs find themselves just two games ahead of Colorado for the bottom of the National League West, and just three games better than Texas of the American League West, the least-successful squad in MLB. The D-backs won just seven times against 16 losses in the month of August, and prepare to spend all but the last six games of the regular season doing battle with their NL West counterparts – those final six games being the tail-end of the final road trip, in Minnesota; followed by the season-concluding three-game series with St. Louis.
8/22/14 - It’s been a tough week for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who go into this weekend’s action having lost six straight and eight of their last 10; with one of those wins coming in Cleveland and the other one in Miami. After the lone win against the Marlins in the second game of the four-game series with the Marlins, the D-backs dropped their next two to Miami, then the next four to a surging Washington team, falling twice to reliever Rafael Soriano after allowing Stephen Strasburg to even his record. The D-backs will now spend all but the last six games of the season doing battle against their West rivals; they currently are in fourth place, 18 ½ games behing the Los Angeles Dodgers and just two ahead of Colorado.
8/18/14 - As if things couldn’t get any worse for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Manager Kirk Gibson told reporters this past weekend that All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, literally the only bright spot in the D-backs season this year, is most likely lost for the season due to a fractured hand suffered when he was hit by a pitch by Pittsburgh’s Ernesto Frieri. “Realistlically, it’s eight weeks,” Gibson said, “so he’s done.” The ill-fated at-bat was in the bottom of the ninth of Friday’s game; in the ninth inning of Saturday’s game, Pirates star Andrew McCutcheon had been hit in the back by a pitch from Arizona’s Randall Delgado. For his part, Goldschmidt didn’t think he had been targeted by Frieri. “Guys have to try and get outs,” Goldschmidt said after the game.
8/15/14 - What kind of a year has it been for the Arizona Diamondbacks? Going into the weekend of August 16-17, the D-backs will have fewer than a handful of players who will ultimately have enough qualifying appearances to qualify for statistical leadership – hitters Miguel Montero and Aaron Hill; and pitchers Josh Collmenter and Wade Miley. For offensive stats, a hitter must have at least 3.1 plate appearances per his team’s games; while for pitchers, it’s one inning per game. With Paul Goldschmidt likely done for the season, as the Snakes plow through their remaining schedule, Goldschmidt will fall short of the required plate appearances – yet he may still finish the season as the D-backs’ team leader in a number of categories.
7/28/14 - In a season without a lot of positives (Paul Goldschmidt and a cast of thousands), one player worth taking a look at is third baseman Martin Prado, who is pretty much the second-best hitter the D-backs have this season. Prado, who can be somewhat streaky at the plate, seems to be taking an approach to hitting which is contrary to the “grip it and rip it” nature of contemporary hitters. The Diamondbacks blog “Inside the ‘Zona” compares Prado to Dos Equis beer’s “Most Interesting Man in the World”: Prado doesn’t swing very often, but when he does he prefers to make contact. Prado has been described as a patient hitter; while his actual batting average is only .274, he has a batting average in balls in play of .310, and is second on the Snakes in hits (yep, behind Goldschmidt) with 104.
7/18/14 - As they get ready to kick off the second half of the season, the Arizona Diamondbacks got a little good news when Mark Trumbo was activated from the disabled list for this weekend’s series against Western Division rivals San Francisco. Trumbo had been out since very early in the season with a stress fracture in his left foot; in seven rehab games before his activation, Trumbo hit .458 with five homers and 12 runs batted in. Another recall came in the form of pitcher Trevor Cahill, a righthander, from their Reno Triple –A affiliate. Cahill had been with the D-backs earlier this season, making 19 appearances and a 1-6 record with a 5.66 ERA.
7/10/14 - While it’s well behind the two horse race that the National League’s West Division has become, between San Francisco and the Los Angeles Dodgers, just two games separates third place San Diego from the last place Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-backs claimed two of three from visiting Miami in their last series, including a 10-inning 4-3 win spearheaded by Al-Star selectee Paul Goldschmidt, who doubled in the last two of the Snakes’ runs in the bottom of the 10th for the win. On the other hand, the path forward for Arizona was clouded considerably when it was announced that starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo would need to undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery.
7/3/14 – The Arizona Diamondbacks are currently wrapping up their series in Pittsburgh against the Pirates. Tonight, the Snakes look to end their PNC Park stint on a good note, having dropped two games to the Bucs in as many days. If you want to catch the D-Backs on July 4th get ready to shell out some bills, because the get-in price for the Arizona Diamondbacks at Atlanta Braves matchup on Friday will set you back $30. While you are sure to be dazzled by the "All American Fireworks Spectacular" at the beautiful Turner Field, Arizona Diamondbacks tickets drop down to a $8 the very next day (Sat, 7/5) and an even cheaper $5 minimum the day after that (Sun, 7/6)!
6/19/14 - As teams approach the midpoint of the 2014 season, the bright spots for the Arizona Diamondbacks seem to be few and far between. Let’s see: there’s Paul Goldschmidt, Paul Goldschmidt, and…oh yeah, Paul Goldschmidt. The popular Diamondback first baseman is having a great year at the plate, leading the Snakes in nearly every offensive category, and is also the D-backs’ top fielder as well. Goldschmidt is also in a race with the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Adrian Gonzalez to be voted by fans as the National League’s starting first baseman (and likely, the the lone rep from Arizona) in the 2014 All-Star Game, which this year is at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minn. Goldschmidt pulled ahead of Gonzalez in figures released this past weekend, and currently leads by around 250,000 votes.
6/16/14 - Though losing two of three at home to Houston didn’t help, the Arizona Diamondbacks find themselves percentage points out of the National League West cellar, now ahead of San Diego. The Snakes are 6-4 in the month of June so far, having also swept Colorado in Denver, and taking two of three from Atlanta at home. As a team the D-backs are in the top half of the majors in such categories as team batting average and slugging percentage (11th overall) and runs scored (13th), but their below-average on-base percentage (22nd overall) may be holding the team back nonetheless offensively. The pitching situation, however, is less than positive, with the Diamondbacks near the bottom of the bigs in most important statistical measures.
6/6/14 - After dropping three of four to visiting Cincinnati to end May and start June, the Arizona Diamondbacks headed to Denver, and took their brooms with them, taking three straight from the Rockies. The first game of the series, a 4-2 win, was a pitcher’s duel compared to the other two games, in which the Snakes scored a combined 28 runs against Colorado’s 15. Paul Goldschmidt continues to be The Man in the D-backs’ lineup, leading the team in just about every offensive category – homers (11, 10th in the National League), RBIs (44, 2nd in the NL)), hits (75), runs scored (46, also 2nd in the NL), and batting average (.307, the only regular over .300, and ninth in the league).
5/30/14 - Josh Collmenter of the Arizona Diamondbacks collected his fourth straight win on May 29, notching a 4-0 complete game win against the visiting Cincinnati Reds. Collmenter has not taken a loss for the D-backs since April 20, when he lost to the Dodgers 4-1. Since then, he’s 4-0 with three no-decisions in seven starts. The win over the Reds was his first complete game of 2014; Collmenter has reduced his ERA from its peak of 4.02 midway though May’s games to its current 3.34 mark, tops on the Diamondbacks staff, as his his four wins (tied with Bronson Arroyo).
5/23/14 - While the Arizona Diamondbacks are struggling along in last place in the National League’s West Division, well of the pace set by division leaders San Francisco, exciting things are happening in the D-backs’ farm system. Jon Griffin, first baseman for the team’s Double-A affiliate in Mobile, Alabama, whacked five consecutive home runs over two games, the only player in Southern League history to ever accomplish the feat. He hit four of his five longballs in a single game, just the second Southern Leaguer to do so, then left the yard again in his first at-bat of the next game. Griffin, who was drafted out of Central Florida by Arizona in 2011, has nine homers in 40 games for the BayBears.
5/12/14 - 2014 has been a struggle for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who languish in last place of the National League’s West Division, 10 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Snakes got off to a seriously slow start, dropping 14 of their first 18, but since the calendar has rolled over into May, things might be starting to look up a little, as the D-backs have won six of their last nine, taking two out of three from San Diego (who are just 3 ½ games ahead of Arizona), Milwaukee (leading the NL Central), and the Chicago White Sox (second in the American League Central). Slugger Paul Goldschmidt is having another solid season, currently leading the Diamondbacks in most major hitting stats (slash line of .321/.371/.531, OPS of .902, 7 HR, 23 RBI). Free agent acquisition Bronson Arroyo leads the team in wins, while Wade Miley is tops in strikeouts and ERA.
5/5/14 - After a rough start to the week, the Diamondbacks avoided a sweep by the Rockies and went on to defeat other division foes, the San Diego Padres, over the weekend. Arizona is still fifth in the NL West, but they continue to narrow the gap between themselves and the fourth-place Padres (four games ahead). This comes thanks to NL Rookie of the Month, shortstop Chris Owings, who posted a .313 batting average for the month of April. Up next for the D-backs is a testing visit to the Milwaukee Brewers, followed by a trip to Chicago against the White Sox. Arizona Diamondbacks tickets are as low as $6 when they face Milwaukee, the toughest team in the league, on Tuesday and Wednesday (5/6-5/7).
4/29/14 - Things were looking up when the Arizona Diamondbacks snapped four consecutive losses with a three game win-streak, including a split series with the Cubs, last week. Heading into the final week of April, the DBacks have dropped three straight games and lost heavy-hitter Mark Trumbo to the DL from a stress fracture. Arizona Diamondbacks tickets for their final two games against Colorado are $7-$9 to start (4/29-4/30); the get-in price bumps up to $12 for their first match at Petco Park opposite the Padres (5/4).
4/21/14 - The Arizona Diamondbacks have yet to get the ball rolling this year, trailing by rather large margins in their 16 losses on the season. At 5th in the tough NL West, the DBacks are four games away from catching the San Diego Padres who are in fourth. Arizona has a real opportunity to rake in the victories, with four games lined up against the Cubs starting tonight. Chicago Cubs tickets start at just $1 (4/21-4/22, 4/24) across this all-important series.
4/14/14- The Arizona Diamondbacks hit a roadblock when they faced the Los Angeles Dodgers in Phoenix over the weekend. While they were successful against NL West contenders from NorCal, defeating the Giants 2-1, the DBacks fell in three consecutive games to Los Angeles, even being shutout in their first meeting. To improve, Arizona is altering their starting rotation, likely moving Trevor Cahill to the bullpen in favor of either Bo Schultz or Mike Bolsinger. The DBacks will try to rally past a 4-11 record starting tonight against the Mets and against the Dodgers this weekend. It's easy to find cheap Arizona Diamondbacks tickets this week: get in for $10 this Wednesday (4/16) in Phoenix, or pay $2 to see them in Los Angeles on Sunday (4/20).
4/7/14 - The Arizona Diamondbacks have had a really tough start to the season, going 2-7 and losing three series to the Dodgers, Giants and Rockies. One of their wins came against the Giants last Tuesday; see if they can best them at AT&T Park, starting tomorrow! Arizona will be coming off a win on Sunday, boasting Paul Goldschmidt's .400, Chris Owings .367 and Mark Trumbo's .314 batting averages—it's the pitching rotation (averaging an ERA of 6.18) that must step it up to beat San Francisco (and the Dodgers this weekend). The cheapest Arizona Diamondbacks tickets of the week are offered on Thursday in San Francisco for $10 and on Sunday in Los Angeles for $19.
4/1/14 - The Arizona Diamondbacks have had a rough start to their season, losing to two quality opponents over the last three games. After dropping two to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the DBacks nearly took their first win of the year against the San Francisco Giants yesterday, but ultimately lost 9-8. Arizona will take on the Giants for three more nights and cheap tickets are still available! See them turn things around and get-in tonight for just $9, tomorrow for $15 and Thursday for $10. The Arizona squad will pack their bags and head off to Colorado for a few games against the Rockies at Coors Field: get-in for their first match on Friday for $81.
3/24/14 - Following their Opening Series trip in Australia, the Arizona Diamondbacks have had a rocky start to the season. They are now 0-2, losing both games to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Sydney. The DBacks will try to brush off the jetlag and get back into tip-top form when they play their final two exhibition matches of the year this weekend against the Chicago Cubs at Chase Field. You can score some cheap Arizona Diamondbacks tickets for these games: get-in for $17 on Friday and $15 on Saturday. Tickets to the DBacks' Opening Day game against division rivals, the San Francisco Giants, are even cheaper than Spring Training games! You can get-in for just $8 next Monday and see the season kick off right.
3/18/14 - Regular season has all but begun for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who have arrived in Australia to play the first regular season game of the 2014 season. The Diamondbacks will take on the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend for the first Opening Series, and assuming you aren't a die-hard fan en route to see them Down Under, you'll have to wait until Opening Day to see the D-backs play in the States. Arizona is pitted against the San Francisco Giants on March 31, and tickets average $64 at Chase Field. Arizona is without their starting pitcher for Game 1, Patrick Corbin, who is likely out for the rest of the season from a UCL tear in his elbow, which may require Tommy John surgery.
3/10/14 - Manager Kirk Gibson and his squad can't wait to show their talent internationally, with just a week left before Arizona's overseas game against the Dodgers in Australia. On the downside, Bronson Arroyo may not be joining the team abroad, as he is expected to miss 7-10 days due to an inflamed disk; on the upside, free agent left-hander Oliver Perez definitely will be joining the bullpen after signing a two-year deal. Arizona Diamondbacks tickets start at $21 when they meet Cleveland tomorrow afternoon, and drop to $19 to get-in on their faceoff with Seattle this Thursday.
3/3/14 - Arizona kicked off Spring Training with some old fashioned revenge: the Dbacks bested the Dodgers and vaunted pitcher, Clayton Kershaw, 4-1 on Wednesday's opening game. This was the first time these two teams met since Los Angeles took the NL West last year, but they'll be meeting against for another big game: MLB's season opener over in Australia. Manager Kirk Gibson just announced the opening job Down Under will go to Patrick Corbin, who went 14-8 last year. Arizona is 3-3 coming into today's split-squad double-header against the Angels and Rockies. Arizona Diamondbacks tickets start at $15 for their Wednesday game against Kansas City, and $17 for their match against Oakland.
2/25/14 - The Arizona Dbacks certainly made some big moves in winter to keep the competition closer in the NL West this year, but perhaps their greatest success story of the offseason was the successful rehabilitation of outfielder Cody Ross. Ross came back to camp from hip surgery and is garnering comparisons to Bo Jackson, who suffered the same hip fracture injury. Manager Kirk Gibson says his comeback is "unreal," as the physicality with which he's performing is way ahead of schedule. The OF was initially slated to return in May, but now may be able to accompany the team to Australia for their season-opener in March! The average price for Arizona Diamondbacks tickets has dropped slightly, from $44 to $40 across spring training. Be in the stands for just $24 to see the first Cactus League game of the year, when the Dbacks go toe-to-toe against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
2/11/14 - The Arizona Diamondbacks wrapped up the offseason with one final big move, signing a durable player at the age of 37 and a welcome addition to the rotation: free-agent pitcher Bronson Arroyo on a two-year, $23.5 million contract. As of yesterday, the Diamondbacks reported all pitchers, catchers and position players and are gearing up for their first workout starting tomorrow. Due to their opening day game that will take place Down Under, the D-Backs and the Dodgers have both reported a week earlier than most other teams. These two Cactus League teams will face off earlier than that, however, with a Feb 26 game in Scottsdale, AZ, at just a $27 minimum.
1/27/14 - It looks like the Arizona Diamondback are headed into the NL West this season as underdogs. With a myriad of promising young players in the bullpen, including Archie Bradley, the D-Backs have some prospective breakout stars brewing. Arizona Diamondbacks tickets are averaging $44 for Spring Training. Be there on Feb 26 to see them square off against rivals, the Dodgers, for only $26 at Salt River Fields.
The Arizona Diamondbacks may be the youngest franchise in the major leagues, but they’re already quite a storied team! The D-Backs were the fastest team in the majors to win a championship, taking the World Series in just their fourth season and last year, Arizona finished second in the NL West. Just behind rivals the Los Angeles Dodgers, the D-Backs have been putting in a lot of work this winter to assure that doesn’t happen again.
Arizona was one of the busiest teams in the offseason, with GM Kevin Towers selling low on many young players. Arizona acquired Addison Reed and slugger Mark Trumbo from the Los Angeles Angels, in exchange for trading off fresh players Tyler Skaggs, Matt Davidson, and Adam Eaton. The two will join Paul Goldschmidt, Martin Prado and A.J. Pollack around the diamond, but even more changes were made in the bullpen. The ineffective trio of Heath Bell, Chaz Roe and Tony Sipp are gone after a poor season. The D-Backs were finalists in bagging highly touted free-agent pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, only to be outbid by the New York Yankees for a seven-year contract. Now, after missing the Matt Garza opportunity, the D-Backs will have to sacrifice a draft pick to attain a proven starter beside Patrick Corbin if they want to add depth to a young bullpen and compete against their bigger-market neighbors.
7/26/13 - After a few years of wandering in the desert after their surprising run to a World Series title in 2001, the D-backs have made their way back into a contending team, with skipper Kirk Gibson, a former star in his playing days, providing experienced leadership while calling the right shots. The key name in the D-Backs’ offensive resurgence is first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, who leads the club in most important offensive categories; pitcher Patrick Corbin will be a name to keep an eye on in the second half for the Snakes.
The Miami Marlins aren't the only team in MLB with major changes to its lineup. The Arizona Diamondbacks traded Justin Upton and Chris Johnson to the Atlanta Braves in a deal that included 3B Martin Prado and RHP Randall Delgado. The D-Backs also acquired free agents Cody Ross and Brandon McCarthy as well as Adam Eaton to add to their depth chart. Fans at Chase Field will see new faces on the Diamondbacks roster this season.
These D-Backs fans know that their team can hold its own in a tough NL West despite having to compete against big-market teams with a lot of money. Two of the three most expensive Diamondbacks Spring Training games come against Division rivals Los Angeles Dodgers (3/17) and San Francisco Giants (3/27). The average D-Backs Spring Training tickets are $41; the March matchup against the Dodgers is $54, versus the Giants $50.
Arizona Diamondbacks tickets for Opening Day against the St. Louis Cardinals (4/1) are averaging double the cost of the next most expensive game. D-Backs Opening Day tickets have an average price tag of $181 but a get-in price of under $20. Following Opening Day at Chase Field, the next six most expensive games will all be played against the San Francisco Giants. The average AZ Diamondbacks tickets for the 2013 season are $66. In comparison to other NL West teams - San Francisco Giants tickets average $72, Los Angeles Dodgers tickets average $63, San Diego Padres tickets average $80, and Colorado Rockies tickets average $45. The Diamondbacks schedule includes 9 games against the Giants and Padres and 10 games against the Dodgers and Rockies.
