For the first time since early 2020, there is a palpable buzz around the Diamondbacks. It’s not that the Diamondbacks are favored to win the NL West.

Outfielder David Peralta was named a National League Gold Glove finalist in left field, joining the Cardinals’ Tyler O’Neill and former Diamondback A.J. Pollock, now with the Dodgers.
