The Arizona Diamondbacks announced their 2024 Spring Training camp roster for their 27th Spring Training and 14th at the Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. There will be 66 players in camp, including all the members of the 40-man roster, in addition to 26 Non-Roster Invitees.

On the coaching side, Torey Lovullo returns for his eighth season as manager. The coaching staff features bench coach Jeff Banister (third season), Brent Strom as pitching coach (third season), Mike Fetters as bullpen coach (eighth season, 12th overall), Dan Carlson (third season, 23rd overall) as assistant pitching coach, Joe Mather as hitting coach (third season, eighth overall), Damion Easley (third season), Drew Hedman (fourth season, sixth overall) and Rick Short (fourth season) as assistant hitting coaches, Dave McKay as first base coach (11th season) and Tony Perezchica as third base coach (eighth season, 22nd overall).

We’ll be doing our usual round-up of the non-roster invitees over the next couple of weeks, so you know who’s who. But any names stand out as having a shot at the Opening Day roster? Tucker Barnhart is the one who would seem to have the highest odds, but there’s typically a dark-horse or two on the pitching side. Brandon Hughes is interesting: he had a poor 2023, derailed by a knee injury, but was excellent in 2023 with a 3.12 ERA, though his FIP was a run and a half higher. A little surprised by the lack of (non-catcher) position players in camp. Just half a dozen of those, which does suggest those on the 40-man roster are probably, health permitting, going to be the ones who break camp.

However, there is still time for additional additions, both as we head towards spring, and even after things get under way at Salt River Fields. Pitchers and catchers report THIS MONTH folks! We’re almost there...
