The 2018 Arizona Diamondbacks season is the franchise's 21st season in Major League Baseball and their 21st season at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona as members of the National League West Division. They are managed by Torey Lovullo in his second season with the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks began the regular season on March 29 against the Colorado Rockies and will finish the season on September 30 against the San Diego Padres. The D-backs will attempt to make the playoffs for the second consecutive season, having won the wild card in 2017.
