Arizona Diamondbacks Starting Lineup 12/10/18 Diamondbacks Lineup

82-80, 3rd in NL West

green-check Confirmed Conf

ARI 3 @ SD 4

Final

Updated:

Arizona’s lineup is centered on Paul Goldschmidt, who is the big power bat in the lineup. Goldschmidt has been an everyday player in Arizona for a while, but his contract is up at the end of the year. It would be a massive hole to fill, but time will tell. Jake Lamb and David Peralta have been a big part of Arizona’s success this season, but against left-handed pitching they can be a bit neutralized. Arizona have Deven Marrero, Steven Souza, and Ketel Marte who can be in and out options for this lineup. Chris Owings is also in the mix on occasion, but has fallen behind Marte in terms of everyday playing time.

Notes

A.J. Pollock has had injury issues over the last few seasons, but when he is healthy he is one of the better outfielders in the league. Jon Jay and Jarrod Dyson are both outfield options, but Jay has diminished Dyson’s playing time, mainly due to his contact rate against both handedness of pitchers. Jay came over from the Royals mid year, which was an added insurance policy for Pollock. Right now there is an abundance of outfielders in Arizona. Behind the dish you have three viable catchers, which gives us problems when trying to figure out who will be behind the dish. John Ryan Murphy has been the standout option in a small sample size this season, while Alex Avila came over via free agency in the offseason. Jeff Mathis is the third string catching option, and rarely finds himself in play. Arizona has a pretty straight forward lineup most nights, but on occasion will switch things up when lefties are on the hill. Nick Ahmed is one of those bats that finds himself in the lineup against lefties because of his success so far in 2018 against them.
