After a relatively slow offseason leading into the 2018 season, the Arizona Diamondbacks pulled off a three-team trade that brought in outfielder Steven Souza Jr. and pitching prospect Taylor Widener.

Park factors (like all statistics) are not perfect and particularly difficult because they require an extra long sample before we can take any information too seriously.

I didn’t expect a lot from this team, to be honest, but it must be frustrating for Diamondbacks fans for their team to constantly be second or third in their division. In 2017, they finally made the playoffs (as a wildcard) for the first time since 2011, in which they lost in the divisional round to the Dodgers.
