The Diamondbacks and Phillies conclude a 4-game series at Chase Field Monday.
Can Arizona take three of four in the series?
Follow our updates from Chase Field.
Fans attending the team’s four-game series against the Phillies may have noticed higher temperatures inside Chase Field. That’s because there were. Game-time temperatures inside were 84 degrees on Friday night, 83 degrees on Saturday night and 81 degrees on Sunday afternoon.
According to Josh Rawitch, the Diamondbacks’ senior vice president of content and communications, this is why:
“There were leaks in our cooling and A/C system due to excessive heat and the power outage downtown so as a result, we had hotter than usual temperatures in (the) ballpark,” Rawitch said in an email.
Things were back to normal on Monday with the game-time temperature announced at 78 degrees.
Here are some highlights from manager Torey Lovullo’s pregame news conference with reporters on Monday:
Making a case for All-Star consideration:
Lovullo said a handful of his players deserve All-Star recognition this season and said he’s a bit perplexed that first baseman Paul Goldschmidt isn’t at or near the top of fan balloting among National League players. There is one week left of voting and the skipper would like to see a push in favor of his star slugger.
“Yeah, I would like to do that,” Lovullo said. “Goldy is one of the most complete players that I have ever been around. … I’ve seen a lot of talented players and Goldy is right up there with some of the elite ones. He deserves that consideration. I know that it’s a tough position; there are some very capable first basemen in the National League, but he’s one of the best players in the league hands down.”
Goldschmidt figures to be a lock to make the All-Star team, but Lovullo said other Diamondbacks are just as deserving such as third baseman Jake Lamb, starting pitchers Zack Greinke and Robbie Ray and closer Fernando Rodney.
Lovullo said it’s not his style to pick up the phone and politic with NL All-Star manager Joe Maddon of the Cubs to help get certain players named to the squad.
“If somebody asked me, I would absolutely give my input,” he said. “I feel like we have a number of guys on our team that deserve strong consideration. I know the process is a difficult one for both leagues. I’ve walked through that with John Farrell (in Boston) and I saw the challenges that he walked through.
“Sometimes players have to be eliminated (from consideration) and it’s frustrating and I know it’s not easy. Hopefully, the league does the right thing in a lot of different situations. We’re not the only team that’s talking about this right now, I guarantee it. But we have a number of players here that have led us to this record and they deserve consideration.”
Asked if Goldschmidt were to be the only Diamondbacks player to make the All-Star team, Lovullo said, “I would be a little bit surprised by that.”
Pollock’s rehab update
Center field A.J. Pollock continued his minor-league rehab assignment on Sunday and came out of the game for Triple-A Reno after four innings, but that was because he already had his third at-bat of the day, Lovullo said.
Pollock, who is nursing groin and quad issues, is scheduled to play for Reno again on Tuesday in Salt Lake City if all goes well.
Asked if there’s a chance Pollock could be activated in time to play against the Cardinals this week at Chase Field, Lovullo said, “I don’t want to go that far. We want him as soon as he’s ready to perform at 100 percent and when that happens, we’ll get to lay that plan out.”

A day off for Goldy
Monday’s scheduled day off for Goldschmidt was planned well in advance, Lovullo said, adding the first baseman would be available off the bench Monday if needed for any reason.
“I want to give him a mental break, a physical break and I told him if there’s a need for him to pinch hit or maybe as a defensive replacement, we’ll go in that route but I’m going to do all that I can to keep him off the field,” Lovullo said. “We have a number of games that are coming up without an off day and I felt like it made a lot of sense to get him off his feet and give him a good push for some important series that are coming up.”
Paul Goldschmidt and Brandon Drury aren’t starting today.
Here is the Diamondbacks’ lineup vs. the Phillies:

Phillies at Diamondbacks
When: 12:40 p.m.
Where: Chase Field (roof hotline: 602-462-6262).
Pitchers: Diamondbacks RHP Zack Greinke (8-4, 3.14) vs. Phillies RHP Nick Pivetta (1-3, 4.46).
TV/Radio: FSAZ/KTAR-AM (620), KHOV-FM (105.1).
Greinke couldn’t protect a one-run lead in the eighth inning at Coors Field last week, giving up three consecutive hits, the final one a two-run triple by 3B Nolan Arenado. … Greinke hasn’t been as effective in his past five starts but has still managed to post a 3.86 ERA in 30 1/3 innings. … Current Phillies players have a career .192/.222/.269 line against Greinke in 52 combined at-bats. … Pivetta will be making his ninth career start. … His past two have been impressive. He’s given up three earned runs in 13 innings with three walks and 19 strikeouts. … He has a big fastball that averages 94.3 mph but none of his secondary pitches are considered above-average offerings.
