What jumps out: Arizona has three series left with San Francisco this season and two with San Diego. Their only interleague series left comes in an interesting matchup to close the regular season at Kansas City. The Royals could well be fighting for their playoff lives during that series as well.
From August 25-September 20, Arizona will see no team other than those in the National League West. When the Diamondbacks do meet someone from outside the division, it will be Miami in the desert in the next-to-last weekend of the regular season. The Marlins could play a big role in the postseason shakeup as they play Arizona and then head to Colorado next. Miami also has a three-game in south Florida against the Brewers in mid-September.
Who has the easier schedule between the Rockies and Diamondbacks? It’s hard to say as they are pretty even and filled with division foes for both teams. Don’t forget though, the odds seem to be slightly in Arizona’s favor according to MLB.com and FanGraphs.
