2017 RECAP

Record: 31 - 20

Last Season’s Fantasy Highlights

Late season emergence of David Peralta and Ender Inciarte provided some outfield support for fantasy teams down the stretch and some depth for the D-backs in 2015. Injuries to Patrick Corbin and Bronson Arroyo allowed Josh Collmenter to establish himself in the rotation plus an audition for Chase Anderson and Vidal Nuno.

What Has Changed?

Miguel Montero and Wade Miley are gone. While the catching situation is in flux, Miley fetched a couple of upside arms in Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster. Jeremy Hellickson was also brought in to bolster the rotation. But the big acquisition was 24-year old Cuban Yosmany Tomas who will be given every chance to win the job at the hot corner. With Didi Gregorius now in pinstripes, Chris Owings has the shortstop gig to himself.

What to Expect:

Before his hand was fractured by an Ernesto Frieri pitch while pinch-hitting in a meaningless August game, Paul Goldschmidt was enjoying another typically stellar campaign. While there is some concern that hand injuries can sap power, missing all of September and the entire off-season should have Goldy ready from the jump. Much will be anticipated from Tomas but he’s more Pablo Sandoval than Jose Abreu. A full season from Mark Trumbo could mean 30+ homers but beware, he’ll be pulled late in games for defense. Starting pitching is promising but unproven while closer Addison Reed and his fly balls always a risk to clear the Chase Field walls.

This Year’s Surprise:

With a head nod to Chris Owings who should be a nice late-round/end-game middle infielder, A.J. Pollock has a chance to make some real noise from the lead-off spot stealing a bunch of bags without being completely devoid of power.
