Predicting Diamondbacks' 2017 record

Expectations are low for the Arizona Diamondbacks this spring, and Joe Peta is not convinced they'll clear even that modestly set bar.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

I'm surprised to see Ketel Marte demoted, which suggests the Diamondbacks are unlikely to trade Nick Ahmed or Chris Owings anytime soon. Marte is a more interesting player in fantasy than Ahmed, but he's still not so much so that he's a worthwhile stash except in the very deepest NL-only leagues.

2017 breakout pitchers: Robbie Ray

Ray's strikeout rate of 11.25 per nine innings is a good barometer of what to expect in 2017.

Zack Greinke on his spring: "Each start has been just a little better so far."

Taijuan Walker has a league-leading 21:1 strikeout to walk ratio this spring. His mastery of that category in 2015 was largely the reason I was so high on him entering 2016. Chase Field scares me with him, but I think it's time to move him up a few spots in the rankings.

Make-or-break season ahead for Archie Bradley

Bradley is still just 24, but he needs to throw more strikes to reach that top-of-the-rotation potential he flashed when he was a top-10 prospect.

Worry about Zack Greinke's spring struggles

Greinke has not looked good this spring -- his velocity is down and his command is not pinpoint. He's always been a slow starter, but the D-backs can't afford that.

Torey Lovullo is managing in Arizona, but his son, Nick, keeps the Lovullo name alive in Red Sox camp. Nick, an infielder, was Boston's 20th-round pick last year out of Holy Cross.
