Welcome to March Anthony DeSclafani Jersey , a month in which meaningful baseball games will be played!")Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty ImagesFour weeks from today, the Diamondbacks will have their Opening Day contest against the Dodgers in LA out of the way and in the books. The regular season will have begun, and we'll know for certain whether the team is on its way to triumph or disaster. Okay, maybe not quite the latter, but I'm sure the rush to judgment will be swift. This is definitely going to be a year of transition for the Diamondbacks. Less than half the D-backs on the 40-man roster at the start of spring training are carried over from the same point last year: just nineteen. That's a sharp drop from the 30 who remained from 2017 through 2018, and also below the 24 and 22 returnees in the previous two season. Marte back in center today. Interestingly, his early appearances at the infield were design, according to Torey Lovullo. He said they got tips from the Mariners, who did a similar thing with Dee Gordon Adam Duvall Jersey , and they suggested letting Marte start at a known position initially. Said the D-backs' manager, "I think all good infielders want to know they have the infield under control before they transition out. That's what Ketel decided he wanted to do 鈥?early in spring training. We're following it through his eyes. We want to make sure he's comfortable." I can see the sense in this; I'd imagine most of the work is done out of games, considering the average MLB centerfielder made less than 21鈦? putouts per game last season. For most of us, this will be the first chance we get to see the 2019 version of the Arizona Diamondbacks, because it's the first new game of the year on Fox Sports Arizona. Maybe your boss will head out early, since it's Friday. smile The Dodgers look to clinch a playoff spot Saturday, while the division is still in play. spending on the results, the rotation could see a shakeup for Sunday."By the time Clayton Kershaw takes the mound in San Francisco, the Dodgers could already have their ticket punched for October. If the Cardinals lose their early game to the Cubs Michael Lorenzen Jersey , the Dodgers clinch the second wild card.But there is still a shot at the division that the Dodgers are pursuing, needing help from the Nationals. All they can do is win and hope Stephen Strasburg and potentially Max Scherzer take care of Colorado.Kershaw makes his final start of the regular season, his fourth against the Giants this season. In the previous three, the lefty has held San Francisco to three runs in 21 innings. At AT&T Park, Kershaw owns a 13-4 record and 1.30 ERA in 22 games (21 starts).Should the Dodgers get through Saturday with a win and the Rockies lose, there may be a shakeup in the rotation. Rich Hill is prepared to pitch whenever he is needed, whether that's Sunday, Monday or Tuesday.However unlikely, if the Rockies lose both games this weekend and the Dodgers win both , Los Angeles wins the division. If the Rockies lose one and the Dodgers win both, their will be a 163rd game at Dodger Stadium Monday to decide the NL West.If the Rockies lose Saturday and the Dodgers win, Hill could start Sunday to allow Walker Buehler to pitch Monday. Beyond that, should the Rockies win both of their games, Buehler could pitch the wild card game.Whatever the case, the more games the Dodgers have to play before a potential NLDS, the less it plays in their favor due to where they stand in the rotation.
