With just over one week remaining in spring training, here's a quick update on the job battles taking place around Major League Baseball.
Drury has gone 18-for-43 in 15 games this spring and should open the year as the starter at the keystone. Additionally, he'll likely begin the season hitting second, even though he's been dropped to the No. 3 spot while Paul Goldschmidt is away for the World Baseball Classic. Marte is positioned to back up Drury and Chris Owings at the two middle-infield spots.
Initial fears that Corbin might be headed back to the bullpen were unfounded, as he appears to be the most stable of the trio this spring with a 17:3 K:BB in 18.1 innings and a fastball now sitting at 91-94 mph. Assuming he's given a spot, the D-backs are left with Miller and Bradley competing for the final spot in the rotation. Miller fanned eight in 3.1 innings against the Mariners in his most recent spring appearance, while his fastball was sitting in the 96-98 mph range according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. Bradley's spring has featured a mix of rough outings and good ones, which likely pushes him to Reno to begin the season, his final year with minor league options.
