Who was the Dbacks best Fielder, Hitter, and Dbacks Prospects?

The Diamondbacks had a lot of not-so-great fielders this year. This was quite opposite of how it had been for years. Arizona’s been known as a strong defensive team, but this year it was not. Yet, Carson Kelly was one of the best for the team. He showcased his great skills this year behind the plate with only 5 errors in 651 chances. That’s good for a 99.2% fielding percentage. He caught 23% of attempted base-stealers. That’s pretty good. Additionally, he allowed only 8 passed balls. Some other notable fielders are Christian Walker, Jake McCarthy, Nick Ahmed, and Pavin Smith.

The Dbacks best hitter was most definitely Ketel Marte. As mentioned earlier, he had an elite year at the plate. If he had been healthy, he would have been an All-Star and MVP candidate. He led the club at the end of the season, among the players on the roster, in HRs’, Batting Average, On-Base Percentage, Slugging Percentage, On-Base Plus Slugging Percentage, OPS+, and Intentional Walks.

Next. What players are "almost" guaranteed to be on the Dbacks next year due to contracts?. dark

As for the Diamondbacks prospects o the year, well I thought that I would let the Arizona Dbacks share who they think did the best!

As always,

May the Force be with You…
