Diamondbacks Roster Review: Ryan Roberts

By Scott Allen

Into the second half of the season now , it is time to continue to take a look at the current roster as the Arizona Diamondbacks continue to contend for a possible NL West divisional title. Next Up – Ryan Roberts

Roberts: .252, 13 HR, 40 RBI

Review:  Roberts started off super hot.  So hot he was even talked about as a write-in candidate as an All-Star in April.  That all faded quickly though as Roberts has come back down to the life as an average baseball player who produces inconsistently.  The one thing he provides is aggressiveness, almost too much at times though.

Outlook:  The Dbacks will keep throwing him out there.  He still has a flare for the dramatic at times but needs to produce more consistently over the course of a full season.
