Now that we have done the pitchers, let's go do the infielders and catchers. This is a small group that will be tasked with keeping our defense solid behind the pitcher.

Carson Kelly: Franchise catcher gets another start in what could be a breakout year.

Jose Herrera: Beat out other catchers for the backup spot behind Kelly. Former Aces catcher.

Christian Walker: Veteran first baseman is the best they have for hitting/defense at first. He's crushing the ball so far this year with 3 doubles, 2 HRs, and 5 RBIs.

Seth Beer: Will be the backup 1st baseman and regular DH. He's crushed the ball with 4 doubles, 1 HR, 6 RBIs. Contender for rookie of year?

Ketel Marte: Franchise player that just got recently extended is ready to compete for the MVP and All-Star nod this year.

Geraldo Perdomo: Will be a rookie SS replacing Ahmed due to Ahmed's injury. He might take the job forthright after a good spring with 2 doubles, 1 HR, and 6 RBIs.

Sergio Alcantara: Is on the 40-man roster and should be the utility player.

dark. Next. Dbacks just committed to a new franchise cornerstone player!

Drew Ellis: Replaces Rojas as 3rd Baseman, though he was just sent down a couple days, I expect we call him right back up.

Now, let's take a look at the outfielders! Will there be any surprises?
