D-backs' Inciarte, Peralta hope to seize opportunity once again

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Ender Inciarte and David Peralta are Venezuelans, outfielders and opportunists. And they're at the heart of a Diamondbacks domino effect this spring. Both players finished Arizona's disappointing 2014 as feel-good stories. That's only a ticket to another opportunity under a new staff and a healthier roster this year. The friends are competing for one starting...

D-Backs have only 3 positions settled as workouts begin

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) The Arizona Diamondbacks begin full-squad workouts with uncertainty at five of the eight non-pitching positions. That's why new manager Chip Hale uses the word ''competition'' in about every other sentence when talking about the team.

PHOENIX -- Any list of pleasant surprises for the Diamondbacks last season includes rookie outfielders David Peralta and Ender Inciarte. Many would consider them one-two -- with right-hander Chase Anderson also in the mix.
