The Arizona Diamondbacks have been mired in mediocrity recently. They have finished neither first nor last in the NL West the last four years, ending the season in second, third or fourth in their division. The club faces an uphill battle to take down the free-spending Dodgers this year, but the D-backs could linger around .500 long enough to make a run at the Wild Card with Zack Greinke and Robbie Ray at the top of their rotation and Eduardo Escobar, Ketel Marte and David Peralta pacing the offense.
Diamondbacks fans who also happen to be cable TV cord cutters have a number of ways to watch the Snakes whether you live in Arizona or are an out-of-market follower of the club.

Out-of-market Diamondbacks streaming
If you are a Diamondbacks fan living outside of Arizona, you can't watch the D-backs on Fox Sports Arizona. You can, however, stream their games live with an MLB.TV subscription.
You've got two options:
- Pay $119 a year (or $25 a month) to be able to watch every out-of-market game live or on-demand, and the in-market (home) team with a 90-minute delay from the end of the game.
- Pay $92 a year to watch a single, out-of-market team. In this case, the D-backs and nobody else.
Both MLB.TV plans also include streams of home and away radio broadcasts. The radio broadcasts aren't subject to the blackout rule, so you can listen to home team games live.
