David Peralta will get the start in right field tonight as J.D. Martinez sits again, just two days after leaving the game early with a contusion to his left hand. Unless Martinez appears in a pinch-hit role, Diamondbacks fans will have to wait to see their newest acquisition up close and in person.
Zack Godley will take the mound today for the D-backs after he was moved up in the rotation due to Taijuan Walker going out on paternity leave. Speaking of Walker, while I haven’t seen any details, he did tweet out the following message to his followers on Twitter:
So in love ???
