The Diamondbacks pay an interleague visit to the Coliseum, trying to salvage something out of an epically bad month of May. The pitching hasn’t been awful, but they are 5-16 due to their offense, which in 748 PA this month has barfed up a composite .183/.258/.294. Oft-injured A.J. Pollock is good when he plays, but he’s on the DL again.
Friday at 6:35: Manaea vs. Patrick Corbin. Corbin’s velocity has been down significantly his last few starts.
Saturday at 1:05: Mengden vs. Clay Buchholz. Yes, that Clay Buchholz, who has thrown a total of 12-1/3 major league innings in 2017 and 2018.
Sunday at 1:05:
Cahill Montas vs. Zack Greinke.
The ex-A’s report: There are no ex-A’s on the Arizona roster.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend, and try to find a little time for some Oakland Athletics baseball.
