Arizona Diamondbacks Starting Lineup 10/15/21 Diamondbacks Lineup

COL 4 @ ARI 5

Final

Updated:

Just ahead of last season's shifted trade deadline, Arizona unloaded their closer and starting centerfielder. That left two critical holes to fill in a lineup that already had trouble winning games. While the 60-game season was as small sample size, Arizona's 2020 performance in a 162-game slate would have hovered close to 100 losses. Across the shortened 60-game season, the Diamondbacks did not hit well when they needed to. Arizona had a respectable .271 team batting average when they were winning. When the Diamondbacks were behind on the scoreboard, the team batting average dropped 55 points. The Diamondbacks didn't have a problem making contact at the plate.

Arizona tied with the Astros for being the best at putting the ball in play and had the fourth lowest strikeout percentage in baseball. However, the Diamondbacks' batted balls had a strong tendency to find gloves. Despite an above average rating for making contact at the plate, Arizona finished with a bottom-10 run differential rating. Like a number of teams, the Diamondbacks' financial reports after last season were not positive. This would tend to make the team wary of spending on the free agent market, and they didn't. The projected starting rotation for the Diamondbacks has a chance to pitch the team competitive. However, without more timely hitting and run production, Arizona will have a difficult time competing in the solid National League West.
