The Arizona Diamondbacks are looking to make a run in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.

Arizona finished a low-key 85-77 last season and second in the National League West division behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Arizona was only four games out of the final playoff spot.

The Diamondbacks added Starling Marte, Kole Calhoun and Madison Bumgarner in the offseason in hopes of either getting over the hump and shocking the baseball world to win the division or at least making the playoffs.

Arizona is definitely not the sexiest team that fans will be focusing on. But they have the players and the ability to make the run and draw attention throughout the shortened season.

Through 60 games last season, Arizona was 30-30 and 11 games back in the NL West.
