In January we published the Diamondbacks Top 50 prospects. Now with the season underway, instead of looking at how they are doing, I would like to break down those prospects in a depth chart position by position. I list the top three at each position, as well as the top three left handed and right handed starters. Baseball is a long season, so knowing how to rank players when something like an injury comes up could help you win your fantasy league, as well as prepare you for next season. Players already in the majors are not ranked.

The Diamondbacks’ minor league system mirrors the major league team. Plenty of speed from players who will take the extra base go first to third or just do the little things like a sacrifice bunt. These types of players are not only fun to watch but are even better to have on your dynasty fantasy baseball team. Players that light up the box score in many different ways. Pitchers who rack up strikeouts without walking a ton of batters are the kind you will want to stash now so your dynasty team is competitive for seasons to come.


1. Caleb Roberts – Amarillo
Roberts is slashing .270/.342/.514 in his first 9 games this season, with an IL stint already on the books.

2. Gavin Logan – Hillsboro

D’Orazio is hitting only .200 through his first 17 games, and he needs to turn things around in May.

First base

1. Ivan Melendez – Hillsboro
Melendez recently came off the IL and is off to a slow start hitting just .091 in 7 games.

2. Deyvison De Los Santos – Amarillo
De Los Santos is struggling so far at Amarillo hitting .236 over his first 72 at bats, and only slugging .347.

Beer is off to a rough start for the Aces slashing just .200/.266/.314.

2. Ryan Bliss – Amarillo
Bliss is off to a hot start for Double-A Amarillo hitting .402. with 2 homers and 8 steals.

3. Tim Tawa – Amarillo
Our #29 prospect Tawa had a nice start but has since cooled off he is now down to a .174. average


1. Jordan Lawlar – Amarillo
Our #3 prospect Lawlar has had some challenges adjusting to Double-A, so far tallying a .206/.361/.456 slashline, but has four home runs and eight steals.

Pena at just 19 years old, he is just getting started at Single-A Visalia. Through 18 games he’s hitting .183 average with a stolen base.

3. Andrew Pintar – Visalia
Pintar is getting some time in at Single-A Visalia, hitting .241 after a slow start he has picked it up a bit.

Third Base

1. A.J. Vukovich – Amarillo
Vukovich has looked good so far in his first taste of Double-A, currently hitting .260 with 3 home runs and 15 RBI. There’s not a lot of depth at third so keep an eye on Vukovich.

2. Buddy Kennedy – Reno
Kennedy, who debuted last year and has 83 MLB at bats under his belt, has been on fire so far for Triple-A Reno and could get the call to fill a utility-type role. He is hitting .400 with 3 HR and 13 RBI.

3. Gavin Conticello – Visalia
Conticello is off to a rough start so far, hitting .154 with 2 SB in Single-A.


1. Druw Jones – Visalia
Jones is already making highlight-reel catches in centerfield for Single-A Visalia. Jones just recently landed on the 7 day DL after his first 10 games as a pro.

2. Wilderd Patino – Hillsboro
Patino is hitting leadoff for Hillsboro and already has 13 steals to go along with a .224 average.

3. Dominic Canzone – Reno
Canzone had a slow start but has definitely turned it on. He’s put up a .294 average 7 HR and 23 RBI so far in Triple-A.

Left-handed pitcher

1. Tommy Henry – Reno

2. Slade Cecconi – Reno
Cecconi is a tough competitor. Recently in a start he gave up back to back to back-home runs and did not allow another hit through the rest of his outing. His overall numbers in five starts are not good, but stash Cecconi while you can.

3. Jamison Hill – Amarillo
Hill has not allowed the move up to hitter-friendly Amarillo phase him. Across four starts he has a 3.86 ERA with 22 strikeouts in 16.1 innings pitched.
