It’s been more than a month since the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Cinderella run through the MLB postseason ended three wins shy of the franchise’s second World Series title while invigorating Arizona sports betting.
Regardless of the championship series outcome, Arizona has quickly emerged as one of the best defensive teams in the majors, with budding superstars like outfielder Corbin Carroll, catcher Gabriel Moreno and veteran infielder Ketel Marte leading the charge.
Between those three and a host of other D’backs players, Arizona can call themselves one of the MLB’s best teams in the field over the last three seasons, posting the league’s ninth-best number when it comes to average errors per game.
As we have moved into the depths of the offseason, it is important to dissect what MLB teams can do to follow the formula of successful teams. BetArizona.com used TeamRankings.com to look at the least to most mistake-prone MLB teams by average errors per game over the past three seasons.

Arizona sportsbook apps list the L.A. Dodgers as the World Series favorite at +450. Atlanta is second at +700.
D’backs Emerging as Defensive Juggernaut
While Arizona failed to make the postseason in two of the three seasons highlighted, the D’backs play in the field has still fared better than the league’s average since 2021.
The team’s average errors per game (.500) are the fourth-best among the 15 teams in the National League, ranking below only St. Louis (.446), San Diego (.470) and Atlanta (.480). Leaguewide, Arizona’s sandwiched between No. 8 Tampa Bay (.497) and the No. 10 L.A. Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays.
