Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Milwaukee Brewers Free Pick

The Arizona Diamondbacks are the hottest team in baseball and will have Greinke on the mound Saturday. If he can keep the long ball under control, he will be fine but let’s not forget he has allowed 10 home runs in 67 innings. That isn’t good when you’re facing a team like the Brewers but with a offense behind him, even if he allows 2-3 earned runs, the Diamondbacks are playing well enough to overcome and prevail. I will play the Arizona Diamondbacks and Zack Greinke for 2 Units!
