On Saturday, the Arizona Diamondbacks will commence their spring training schedule of games, after a couple of weeks of workouts. Baseball is finally here. To start off their Cactus League schedule, the Diamondbacks will have two split-squad games.
They will be the road team at Salt River Fields and play the Colorado Rockies, with whom they share the stadium. The game starts at 1:10 and is sold out.
The pitching schedule will be with rookie Trevor Bauer starting and left-hander Patrick Corbin following him.
In Scottsdale at 1:05, the Diamondbacks will play the San Francisco Giants. Josh Collmenter will start the game and be followed by Wade Miley.
The Dbacks last season were dismal in Cactus League play, finishing 12-25. They hope to win more games, but that is not the ultimate focus of the spring.
