Diamondbacks Spring Training Roster- Hitters Edition with 3 Q's that must be answered
By Jake Oliver
Due to the exorbitant amount of players in Diamondbacks MLB camp, I decided to split it up into two articles. The first was about the pitchers in camp. This article will be all about the hitters. With Spring Training in full effect, this roster is only those in MLB camp or in MLB uniform. Therefore, our lower prospects or those not on the 40-man roster aren't included here. They are at camp and may play in MLB spring training games, but they aren't in MLB camp. After the rosters, I'll take a look at 3 IMPORTANT questions that must be answered this Spring Training about the hitters.
So I don't start talking about random baseball topics and lead you astray from what you're here for, let's begin.

Ketel Marte - Will be the team's 2nd baseman full time FINALLY.
