Diamondbacks have been one of the top defensive teams in MLB for the past three seasons.

Diamondbacks Among MLB’s Best Defensive Teams Over Last Three Seasons
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

The Arizona Diamondbacks’ unexpected journey in the MLB postseason came to a close more than a month ago, narrowly missing out on their second World Series title. This sparked a surge of excitement in the world of Arizona sports betting.

Regardless of the outcome of the championship series, Arizona has proven itself as one of the premier defensive teams in the majors. Up-and-coming players like outfielder Corbin Carroll, catcher Gabriel Moreno, and veteran infielder Ketel Marte are leading the charge for this defensive juggernaut.

Over the past three seasons, Arizona and several other D’backs players have solidified their position as one of the top defensive teams in the MLB. They currently rank ninth in the league for average errors per game.

As we continue into the offseason, it is important to analyze how MLB teams can replicate the success of others. yengols.com used TeamRankings.com to study the average errors per game of MLB teams over the past three seasons, from lowest to highest.
