The fate of the the Arizona Diamondbacks 2019 lies at the feet of staff ace Zack Greinke. Luckily, he’ll have some help in the rotation.

The Arizona Diamondbacks and ace Zack Greinke have no idea what’s coming in 2019. They do know, for instance, that the development of Carson Kelly behind the dish and Luke Weaver on the hill will be crucial to the short-term success of their ball club.

They know that their best shot at a dominant future hinges on nailing this June’s draft, wherein they have 8 picks in the top 100.

They know that anything between making the playoffs and earning the first pick in 2020’s June draft will probably be viewed by portions of the fanbase as a disappointment.

They also know, more or less, the pool of players from which they’ll make up Opening Day’s 25-man roster. If they know, we can make our best guess, so without further adieu, the following kicks off our unit-by-unit early look at the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Opening Day roster.

We’ll start from an area of strength. The following is the fingers-crossed edition of the Arizona Diamondbacks starting five.
