Weekly Preview

The DBacks are set to finish off the current road trip with four in Miami starting at 4:10 PM today. Coming off a dominant May, Zack Greinke will face lefty Jeff Locke in game one. On Friday, the two teams will also play at 4:10 PM (AZ time) with Patrick Corbin taking on Jose Urena. Game three will start at 1:10 PM on Saturday and will feature Randall Delgado in his third start of the season against veteran righty Edinson Volquez. No pitchers have been announced for Sunday’s 10:10 AM start although it lines up with Ray’s spot in the rotation after the lefty threw his first career shut out last time out.

Following the road trip will be an off day on Monday, then three at home with San Diego as part of a six game home stand.

Advanced Stat of the Week

With a 0.00 ERA and 1.43 FIP in his last three starts, Ray has dropped his season marks from a 4.57 ERA and 4.23 FIP to his current 3.00 ERA and 3.27 FIP. Given an unsustainable BABIP of .154 in his last three starts, actual results close to his 3.27 season FIP should be expected.
