Next up is the Diamondback’s outfield. If the three following players can stay healthy, it will go a long way toward leading the Diamondbacks to success in 2015.

Left field-Mark Trumbo: Mark Trumbo came to the Dbakcs last season from the Angels in high hopes for another great season, but that did not happen. He only played in 88 games due to injury but did hit 14 home runs. He has a hot bat in spring training hitting .364 with 2 homers and 11 rbi’s. Arizona hopes he will play in most of the games this season so he can maximize his power.

Center field-A.J. Pollock: Pollock has had the best spring for the Dbaks batting .382 with 1 homer and 11 rbi’s. His speed and defensive skills make him the player he is. He has really improved with the bat since last season hoping to hit out of the leadoff spot consistently. I think Pollock will have a tremendous season and will be ready as always.

Right field-David Peralta: Peralta has had a great spring hitting .362 with a .456 on base percentage. He and Cody Ross have had it out this spring competing for that right field spot but Peralta has shown why he earns it in my opinion. He has speed and capability to hit the long ball.
