Taking the off out of off day
In a typical Spring Training, the D-backs would have one scheduled off day. This year because Spring Training is longer, the D-backs have four off days.
Arizona manager Bob Melvin debated how to handle the extra off days and decided that for the first one — which is this coming Thursday — the team will hold a brief workout of about 1 1/2 hours.
Depending on how that goes, Melvin will decide on what to do, if anything, on the other three off days.
