5. Michael Bourn
The recently-signed Bourn was called up from Double-A after Peralta was placed on the DL. Bourn hasn’t done much since stealing 42 bases in 2012, but he’s still capable of playing average to above-average defense in the outfield. It’s unrealistic to expect a lot from him, but if he can become a decent bench player that’s something the Diamondbacks will have to take at this point.
