With Spring Training in full effect, let's take a look at the Diamondbacks Spring Training roster. 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 pitchers

So I don't digress about the ghost runner or any other random issues, let's begin.
