Team to watch
No. 1 prospect Alek Thomas headlines a Triple-A Reno roster that features several players who D-backs fans can expect to see in Arizona soon. The D-backs’ Top 30 Prospects list is loaded with players expected to debut this season and a large number of them will be passing through Reno. Additionally, No. 2 prospect Corbin Carroll is starting the year in Double-A, but will likely be in Reno at some point during the season.

New faces
Jordan Lawlar, the sixth overall pick from last year’s Draft, will make his full-season debut with Single-A Visalia. The 19-year-old hurt his shoulder just two games into his 2021 professional debut, so the upcoming campaign will be the first real glimpse the D-backs and their fans get of the first-rounder.
