5/23/2018 @ MILWAUKEE  
MILWAUKEE: 2017: 86-76, second place.
MANAGER: Craig Counsell (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Lorenzo Cain, OF Christian Yelich, RHP Jhoulys Chacin, RHP Yovani Gallardo, LHP Boone Logan, RHP Matt Albers.
SUBTRACTIONS:2B Neil Walker, OF Lewis Brinson, RHP Matt Garza, RHP Wily Peralta, RHP Carlos Torres, RHP Jared Hughes, RHP Anthony Swarzak.
OUTLOOK: Expectations are up after the Brewers finished one game out of the playoffs in what was supposed to be the second full season of a rebuild. Instead of signing a high-priced starter, General Manager David Stearns added Cain and Yelich as the team's key offseason acquisitions. The new outfielders are former Gold Glove winners who can help out the pitching staff by cutting down on extra-base hits at Miller Park. The rotation should be bolstered later in the season by the return of right-hander Jimmy Nelson, who is recovering from right shoulder surgery in September after getting hurt while diving back to first while running the bases. Whether the Brewers repeat their 2017 success and challenge the Cubs in the NL Central could come down to starting pitching. A trade drawing from the team's outfield depth might help during the season.
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.
Diamondbacks, Brewers match up with similar strengths, concerns

PHOENIX -- The Arizona Diamondbacks and Milwaukee Brewers seem to be playing in unison this season. Strong relief corps. Injuries. Good defense. Injuries. Offense not hitting on all cylinders. Rotation injuries. Injuries.

Both teams have played through it. Arizona leads the NL West despite having lost six of its last seven games, and Milwaukee is in a virtual tie with Pittsburgh atop the NL Central after the Diamondbacks' 2-1 victory over the Brewers Tuesday.

The teams will meet in the deciding game of a three-game series at Chase Field on Wednesday afternoon, when Arizona right-hander Matt Koch will oppose Milwaukee right-hander Brandon Woodruff.

But the Diamondbacks are faced with another obstacle.

Center fielder A.J. Pollock, their most productive offensive player this season, is expected to miss four-to-eight weeks after suffering an avulsion fracture of his left thumb when he dove for Tyler Saladino's line drive that turned into an inside-the-park homer in the ninth inning of Arizona's 7-2 loss Monday.

Pollock is second in the NL with 33 RBIs and is slashing .293/.349/.620 with 11 homers, tied for third in the league. His WAR is 2.1. He will not require surgery, manager Torey Lovullo said.

"It's tough to lose anybody, but the way he was playing, it's a pretty big blow," general manager Mike Hazen said. "It's a hazard for playing the game the way he plays the game. Wouldn't expect it any other way. For guys like A.J., it doesn't matter what the score is. It doesn't matter what the situation is, he is trying to save runs there. And he is going to do that I bet a hundred out of a hundred times.

"It's bad luck."

Pollock missed most of the 2016 season with a fractured elbow and missed almost two months last season with a groin injury.

The Diamondbacks already have played without starters Jake Lamb and Steven Souza Jr. for extended periods. Lamb played four games before going on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, and Souza missed the first month with a pectoral muscle injury.

Starting pitcher Taijuan Walker is expected to miss the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, and Robbie Ray has an oblique injury. Lamb is expected to return sooner rather than later on the nine-game road trip that begins Friday against the Mets.

Jarrod Dyson and Chris Owings are likely to split time in center field, Lovullo said. Owings played center when Pollock went out in 2016 before the team acquired Michael Bourn. Owings is hitting .204. Dyson is hitting .184.

"If we keep handing the bat off to the next guy instead of everybody try to do it themselves, we'll be OK," Hazen said.

The Brewers have not been immune.

Rotation members Jimmy Nelson, Wade Miley, Zach Davies and Chase Anderson are on the disabled list, along with first baseman Eric Thames. Outfielder Ryan Braun missed his second straight game Tuesday, and manager Craig Counsell said he would not rule out a stay on the disabled list.

"Winning games throughout the course of the season, you need different guys at different times to drive the bus, so to speak," Counsell said.

"That's how a team stockpiles wins. One night it is the bullpen, one night it is the starter, one night it is the big guys in the middle (of the lineup). One night it is the guys at the bottom. One night it's defense. We have had some unsung heroes (in the starting rotation)."

Milwaukee and Arizona entered Tuesday's game ranked 1-2 in the NL in "runs saved" over an average major league defense, according to baseballreference.com.

"When I watch this team I feel like I am watching us a little bit," Lovullo said. "They have a tremendous baseball IQ. They go out and compete every single night. Their bullpen is certainly an area of strength. When you look over their numbers, they are not giving anybody a chance to get a hit."

Woodruff (1-0, 8.03 ERA) will make his seventh appearance and third start of the season. He gave up nine hits and seven runs in three innings at Colorado on Friday, but he was not involved in the decision when the Brewers overcame a 9-3 deficit in an 11-10, 10-inning victory.

He is in his third stint with the Brewers this season after pitching well at Triple-A Colorado Springs, going 2-0 with a 1.89 ERA in four starts. He has never faced the Diamondbacks.

Koch (2-1, 2.43) has made quality starts in four of his five starts this season, and he gave up two earned runs in five innings in the other start. He has opposed Max Scherzer, Clayton Kershaw and Justin Verlander in his last three starts, going 1-1 with a 2.79 ERA in that stretch. He has never faced the Brewers.
