Everything you need to know about Arizona Diamondbacks 2022 spring training

The Diamondbacks will begin the spring at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick against the Colorado Rockies on Thursday.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Diamondbacks kick off the 2022 spring schedule at 1:10 p.m. on Thursday against the Colorado Rockies at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick in Scottsdale. 

Games were supposed to start in late February, but a lockout canceled more than a dozen games before players and Major League Baseball agreed on a deal last week. 

Training camps in Florida and Arizona will open Friday, and the mandatory reporting date is Sunday. Exhibition games will begin on March 17 or 18.

Nine will air live on Bally Sports Arizona with Steve Berthiaume and Bob Brenly on the call for four and the other five as opponent broadcasts. 

The final spring game against the Cleveland Guardians will be on Bally Sports on Tues., April 5 live at Chase Field and will feature a 30-minute "D-Backs Live" pre-and postgame show starting at noon, the team said.
