MLB Draft: Who Will The Dbacks Select?

By Guillermo Salcido

More from Diamondbacks Draft

On Monday the Dbacks new generation will see a new face added. The MLB Draft is a very exciting time for teams and prospects alike. This year’s edition is more special than others, mainly because the number one pick is still a mystery. It just so happens that the Dbacks are owners of the number one overall pick.

We here at Venom Strikes have decided to put on our General Manager hats and predict who will join Justin Upton as the only number one overall picks in Arizona franchise history. Earlier we provided a mock draft and have also produced prospect profiles on Brendan Rodgers, Dillon Tate, Alex Bregman, Dansby Swanson, Daz Cameron, Brady Aiken and Tyler Jay.

He’s a prospect that fans can be excited about for years to come as they think of the possibilities with him in the line up. They don’t even need to race to the podium. They’re No. 1!</p></div>. SS.
