A series of unfortunate injuries in baseball have already completely changed the landscape of the World Baseball Classic, Major League Baseball, and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Edwin Diaz’s season-ending injury raises questions about MLB superstars participating in the WBC, and injuries to Corbin Martin and Mark Melancon immediately impact the D-backs Opening Day roster.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
