ARIZONA: 2017 93-69, second place, wild card, lost to Dodgers in NLDS
MANAGER Torey Lovullo (second season)
ADDITIONS: OF Steven Souza Jr., OF Jarrod Dyson, C Alex Avila, RHP Yoshihisa Hirano, RHP Brad Boxberger
SUBTRACTIONS: OF J.D. Martinez, 2B Brandon Drury, C Chris Iannetta, RHP Fernando Rodney
OUTLOOK: With all five starters back and nearly every position player returning, the Diamondbacks expect to be in the thick of things in the NL West after their big turnaround season under Lovullo, the NL MANAGER of the Year. The loss of Martinez hurts the offense but the acquisition of Souza -- who will begin the season on the disabled list -- and signing of Dyson should help. In addition, several players who missed much or most of last season with injuries are back, including Ahmed and utilityman Chris Owings. Greinke's initial start was pushed back a few days after he experienced tightness in his groin during a spring training outing, but it's not expected to be serious. Ray hopes to improve on his breakout season, giving the team a solid 1-2 pitching punch. The lineup could use a return to form at the plate for Pollock, who struggled a bit after missing nearly all of 2016 due to injury. Marte figures to get plenty of time at second base and some at shortstop. Owings and Daniel Descalso can play pretty much every infield spot as well as the outfield.
CINCINNATI: 2017 68-94, fifth place
MANAGER Bryan Price (fifth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Jared Hughes, RHP David Hernandez
SUBTRACTIONS: SS Zack Cozart, RHP Bronson Arroyo, RHP Tim Adleman
OUTLOOK: The Reds launched into a major rebuild in 2015 and have lost at least 90 games for three consecutive seasons while finishing last in the NL Central all three years. They locked up Suarez through 2024 with a $66 million contract during spring training -- their first significant deal during the rebuild -- but are still at least a year away from looking for an upgrade through free agency. The everyday lineup will score enough runs to keep games competitive, but pitching is the sore point again. It would be considered a breakthrough simply to move out of last place.
Reds holding on to Harvey; ex-Mets pitcher next faces Diamondbacks

As soon as the Cincinnati Reds picked up pitcher Matt Harvey from the New York Mets, there was speculation they got him mostly so they could get rid of him later in the season.

But even after Harvey pitched much better than expected for his new team, a trade-deadline deal that would send him to a contender for prospects never developed. So instead of heading off to a pennant race, the right-hander keeps heading back to the mound for the last-place Reds.

That could be bad news for contending teams down the stretch -- including, possibly, the Arizona Diamondbacks. Harvey faces off against left-hander Robbie Ray (3-2) in the second game of the three-game Reds-Diamondbacks series Saturday at Great American Ball Park.

The last-place Reds rode a strong start by right-hander Anthony DeSclafani (6-3), who gave up only three hits in seven-plus shutout innings, and a suicide squeeze bunt by Billy Hamilton that resulted in two runs to a 3-0 victory over Arizona on Friday night.

Harvey was roughed up in two of his last three starts, including a 6-2 loss to the Washington Nationals last Saturday in which he gave up five runs in four innings, and a 9-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 22 that saw him allow four home runs.

But Harvey pitched effectively for five consecutive starts before that, and he already has beaten the Chicago Cubs, Atlanta Braves, Milwaukee Brewers, St. Louis Cardinals and the Pirates since the Reds acquired him from the Mets for catcher Devin Mesoraco and cash.

If there's any disappointment in Harvey that he didn't get dealt to a contender, he's not showing it. The Reds also don't believe he's showing any fatigue, even though the 29-year-old already has thrown more innings (104) than he has in any season since 2015 (189 innings).

"I don't think it's affected him," Reds manager Jim Riggleman told reporters after the loss to Washington. "He's the most adamant of all our guys, '(When) are we going to stop this six-man rotation? I want innings. So I don't think it's that."

Riggleman said Friday that the Reds' six-man rotation will remain at least through the Cleveland series next week. Then, he said, "It might be six again."

"We're not identifying anybody that we feel like we want to take out of the rotation," Riggleman said.

Especially Harvey -- after all, the Reds are 43-38 since acquiring him after being 8-27 before that.

"He's been good for us. He's going to continue to be good," Riggleman said. "I think he's going to be better next year."

Harvey is 3-1 with a 3.52 ERA in five career starts against the Diamondbacks, with only one in the last three years -- a no-decision as the Mets lost to Arizona 5-4 on May 17, 2017. He gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Ray, who has a 2.57 ERA in seven road starts this season, is 1-2 with a 4.24 ERA in 17 innings against the Reds but hasn't faced them this season.

Harvey can only hope to pitch nearly as effectively as DeSclafani, who has allowed only one run in 14 innings in his last two starts. He struck out nine and walked none Friday while facing a first-place team that had won eight of its previous 12 games.

"He was driving his fastball to both halves of the plate, and he did a good job against left-handed hitters by tying them up and using an assortment of pitches after that," Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. "He threw well and kept our offense in check. It wasn't the way we drew it up or thought it would happen ... but everything was clicking for him. We just couldn't get it going offensively."

It's not just DeSclafani; the Diamondbacks have scored more than three runs only once in their last five games, and are ninth in the National League in runs scored.

"It's hard to pinpoint (the reason), I wish I could," Lovullo said. "If I did, we wouldn't have these things going on.

"We've run into some tough pitching ... and when these things happen, you've got to battle through tough times and lean moments and know we're a good offensive team and be ready to capitalize on mistakes."
