Arizona Diamondbacks DFS Notes

The Diamondbacks couldn't muster much at the plate against the Dodgers, going scoreless and collecting just four hits. Marte had one of those hits, knocking a single off of Julio Urias in the first inning. The 27-year-old outfielder could understandably take some time to shake off the rust. Soft tissue injuries have limited Marte to just 139 at-bats this season.
