While the Philadelphia Phillies have been getting the most attention for their offensive struggles over the past few weeks, it's the Arizona Diamondbacks that will enter their Friday matchup against the Colorado Rockies having gone scoreless in 31 consecutive innings. The Diamondbacks weren't exactly expected to lead the league in runs scored, but expectations were relatively high, and it's safe to say many fantasy owners haven't received the production they were looking for.

On average, six Diamondbacks hitters were selected among the top 200 in ESPN live drafts, led by outfielder Justin Upton in Round 2 and corner infielder Mark Reynolds in Round 5. Checking the ESPN Player Rater, the only Arizona player in the top 80 is second baseman Kelly Johnson, a player who is likely on many sell-high lists.
