Arizona Diamondbacks 2017 Opening Day roster watch

New, 37 comments

Let’s keep an eye on the dwindling players left with a shot at an Opening Day spot.

The Arizona Diamondbacks started off with 63 players in camp this spring, but we have already seen several sets of roster cuts, reducing that number to 28, as of March 30. The players re-assigned have included mostly non-roster invitees, but have included some surprising named, including what feels like relatively early departures for top pitching prospect Anthony Banda, and Jared Miller.

I figured it would be worthwhile having a dedicated post, to keep track of who has gone and who’s left, as we head towards Opening Day on April 2. So the table below lists all the players who have been with the Diamondbacks at Salt River Fields this spring. I’ll update the sheet as further cuts, injuries or whatever else take place. Players with health concerns will be shown as struck through if they are not actively appearing in Cactus League games: those may still make it onto the Opening Day roster if they get well again. Players who have been re-assigned are, to all intents and purposes, permanently out of consideration.
