The Arizona Diamondbacks are not in the World Series, but the team did have a big impact on helping both the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros get there.

With several former Arizona players and coaches on the rosters of both teams, the 2019 World Series has a strong Diamondbacks flavor.

Perhaps the most notable Diamondbacks influence on the World Series comes in the starting pitching: Three starters at one point played for the Diamondbacks with one of them playing for Arizona as recently as this season and another as recently as last season.
