With two bold pitching acquisitions, the Diamondbacks turned themselves into a contender. The off-season signing of free agent ace Zack Greinke to a six-year, $206.5 million deal seemed to push another step forward in the right direction. Upper management also reinforced the rotation with right-hander Shelby Miller. With a powerful offense already in place, the D-backs will be a threat this year.
Player to watch:
- SP Zack Greinke
- SP Patrick Corbin
- 1B Paul Goldschmidt
Greinke was one the best available starters on the market this winter, and the D-backs’ five-hour contact-to-contract machinations on Dec. 4 were the no short of amazing. Greinke was “minutes,” he said, from signing with another club, that is believed to be the Los Angeles Dodgers, before the D-backs swooped in after managing partner Ken Kendrick included some deferred money to make the numbers work. Greinke was 51–15 with a 2.30 ERA in his three yeas with the Dodgers organization. Last year, he led the majors in ERA, WHIP and WAR, showing control of four pitches while going 19–3 with a 1.66 ERA.
Lefthander Patrick Corbin was an All-Star in 2013, but missed the entire 2014 season because of Tommy John surgery. He returned in the latter part of 2015 and showed signs of previous brilliance while blowing off the rust. On a strict pitch count, Corbin made five straight quality starts while throwing 85 pitches or fewer. He’s the first pitcher since Bryn Smith in 1988 accomplish that feat. Corbin was 5–2 with a 1.61 ERA in the nine starts last year, in which he performed for at least six innings.
First baseman Paul Goldschmidt is one of the finest player in baseball, a virtuoso in every step of the game. He is the foundation upon which the franchise is built, and he is signed and sealed through 2019.
