Meet The 2010 Dbacks


A decent article with scouts' take on the players on our team. Nothing that we haven't heard, but it's an interesting read.


Who should be the LOOGY? Kroenke or Norberto?

THT's Top 10 prospects for 2010: Arizona Diamondbacks


1. Jarrod Parker / SP / For Parker, everything hinges on a successful recovery from Tommy John surgery. Before the surgery he was one of the more dominant pitchers in the minor leagues. Parker has, of course, been severely downgraded, but he still fits in near the bottom of my top-100 list and at the top of Arizona's top 10. [Please check out the link for the remainder of the top ten]

BPro's 2010 AZ top prospect list


Here's the list: Four-Star Prospects 1. Jarrod Parker, RHP 2. Brandon Allen, 1B Three-Star Prospects 3. Bobby Borchering, 3B 4. Chris Owings, SS 5. A.J. Pollock, OF 6. Keon Broxton, OF 7. Marc Krauss, OF Two-Star Prospects 8. Matthew Davidson, 3B 9. Mike Belfiore, LHP 10. Ryan Wheeler, 1B 11. Leyson Septimo, LHP Four More: 12. Wade Miley, LHP: Miley was the D’backs' second-round pick from '08. He does nothing spectacularly, but a combination of solid stuff, plus command, and left-handedness has value. 13. Roque Mercedes, RHP: The former Brewer has big-time arm strength; he should reach the majors as reliever. 14. Reynaldo Navarro, SS: His tools still intrigue, but his performances remain lackluster. 15. Jordan Norberto, LHP: A little lefty with a good, moving fastball; multiple sources name him a sleeper pick.
