Going into this process we knew that Randy Johnson was likely going to be ranked number one.  What we didn’t realize is just how wide that chasm was going to be between him and everyone else!

As of this writing, Paul Goldschmidt is still with the Arizona Diamondbacks and is without a doubt their top star.  He is also the best position player the team has ever had.

Curt Schilling did not spend a long time in Arizona (three and a half years) but nobody can dispute the impact that he had as a Diamondback.

Luis Gonzalez was a good baseball player before he was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks but it was in the desert where he became an All Star and the team’s premier offensive threat.

Justin Upton was the number one draft pick in 2005 and to nobody’s surprise he was able to crack the Diamondbacks roster as a teenager.  Upton would quickly take over as team’s starting Leftfielder and in 2009 he was named a National League All Star, a feat he would repeat for Arizona in 2011.  That was his best season for the Diamondbacks where he smacked 31 Home Runs with a .529 Slugging Percentage while finishing fourth in MVP voting.  Upton would also have two 20-20 seasons for Arizona.

While Chris Young was never known for having a great Batting Average, he would bring some good power numbers to the Diamondbacks lineup.  In his rookie season, Young went yard 32 times and finished fourth in Rookie of the Year balloting.  He would have three other seasons where he had 20 or more Home Runs and he would also have three 20 Stolen Base seasons for the D-Backs.

Patrick Corbin played the first six seasons of his career with the Arizona Diamondbacks.  The southpaw has had an up and down career, the ups being a pair of 14 Win seasons, the first seeing him go to the All-Star Game (2013).  The lows being Tommy John Surgery taking him out of the entire 2014 Season, the other being the 2016 campaign where he lost his role as a Starter.  Lows are lows and highs are highs and since 2016, Corbin returned to the All-Star Game in 2018 as a Starter and he was third overall in the NL in both Strikeouts and SO/BB while also finishing fourth in WHIP.  Corbin left Arizona as a Free Agent to join the Washington Nationals, where he won a World Series Ring.  With Arizona, Corbin had a 56-54 record with 897 Strikeouts.

Miguel Montero spent nine years with Arizona Diamondbacks gradually working himself to a full time starting role with the team.  While he never had a season where he collected more than 140 Hits, he did have back-to-back 139 Hit seasons where he batted over .280 with 15 Home Runs (2011 & 2012).  Montero would also provide solid defense, most notably where in 2011 he led the National League in Caught Stealing Percentage throwing out 40% of all who dared to steal against him.

Stephen Drew would accumulate 776 Hits over his six and half seasons in Arizona though he might be best known for the three bagger.  Drew finished second in Triples in the NL three seasons in a row (2008-10) and was third in 2011.  His best season was in 2008 where he had 21 Home Runs with a .502 Slugging Percentage, both career highs.

Craig Counsell played four seasons for the Diamondbacks (2000-03) and while he was never really that close to being an All Star the Shortstop did show decent Batting Average on occasion (he batted .275 and .282 in the two seasons where he had over 100 Hits for Arizona) and he had good defensive prowess.  Essentially, Counsell was best served as a utility infielder throughout his career but D-Back fans will always remember his performance in the 2001 NLCS where he was named the MVP of the series.  He would later help Arizona win their first World Series.

While Gerardo Parra was never known for his power numbers (his season high is 14) he made history where he became the 100th player in Major League Baseball history to hit a Home Run in his first ever at-bat.  Parra may not have had many more of those for Arizona, but he did have three 130 Hit seasons and an impressive defensive resume.  Parra would win a Gold Glove playing both Leftfield (2011) and Rightfield (2013), the latter of which would see him win the Wilson Overall Defensive Player Award.

At present, David Peralta has played six seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks where the Outfielder has displayed a balanced offensive game.  Peralta has had four 10 Home Run seasons (which includes a 30 Home Run season in 2018) and in 2015 he would lead the National League in Triples while also batting .312.  Defensively, Peralta is coming off of his first Gold Glove year.  With a career Batting Average of .290 and an improved power game, his ranking is clearly on the rise on this list.

Ian Kennedy had an interesting up and down career in the world of Major League Baseball but by far and wide the best season he ever had by far was in 2011.  That year Kennedy went 21 and 4 with a 2.88 Earned Run Average while finishing fourth in Cy Young voting.  He would secure 15 Wins the next year.

In 2001, Byung hyun Kim made history as the first Korean born player to win a World Series and though his performance in the Fall Classic was poor (0-1 with a 13.50 ERA), he was not a bystander in getting the team there.  Kim took over as the Diamondbacks closer that year and in 2002 he had his best regular season with 36 Saves (eight overall in the NL), a 2.04 ERA and his first and only trip to the All Star Game.  Kim would record 70 Saves for Arizona and will always be remembered in the desert for that submarine delivery.

In the first four seasons of Jose Valverde’s Major League career he seemingly was fighting for the closers role with the Diamondbacks.  When he would win it, injuries would take it away or a slump might have cost him the role.  In that time frame the Dominican reliever who would become known as “Papa Grande” would accumulate 56 Saves.  That wasn’t bad, but it was in 2007 where he was the undisputed closer of the team where he did more than enough to land him on this list.

A member of the Arizona Diamondbacks for only two years (the first two years of his Major League career) Ender Inciarte without a shadow of a doubt would show off increased statistical numbers after being traded to the Atlanta Braves.  While that is accurate, Inciarte was exemplary in his Diamondbacks tenure with his glove as he finished 5th and 4th overall in Defensive bWAR in those seasons.  While defense isn’t sexy, it was good enough to land him here on a franchise as young as the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Aaron Hill had an up and down career in baseball and that was certainly reflected in his half-decade with the Diamondbacks.  Hill would suffer from multiple injuries during his time in Arizona but he would have one really food year in 2012 where he had 184 Hits, 26 Home Runs and batted .302.  The strength of that season and the accumulation of stats from the others land him on this list.

Josh Collmenter bounced back and forth from being a staring pitcher to a relief one.  Collmeneter would win 36 Games for the D-Backs and while he was never consider one of the top pitchers for Arizona during his stint there he was certainly one of the more recognizable ones with his signature over-the-top delivery.  Notably he was fifth in voting for the National League Rookie of the Year in 2011.

Chad Tracy played six seasons for the Arizona Diamondbacks and arguably he lands on this list based on the strength of his second and third season (2005 & 2006) where he was a 20 Home Run hitter.  Tracy’s best season was in 2005 where he had 27 Home Runs with a .308 Batting Average, which was good enough for seventh in the National League that year.  Unfortunately for Tracy he never came close to replicating his two good seasons with Arizona and would be relatively mediocre for the three years after.

35. Mark Reynolds http://www.notinhalloffame.com/baseball/top-50-baseball-players-by-franchise/top-50-arizona-diamondbacks/9493-35-mark-reynolds http://www.notinhalloffame.com/baseball/top-50-baseball-players-by-franchise/top-50-arizona-diamondbacks/9493-35-mark-reynolds 35. Mark Reynolds
Mark Reynolds was certainly adept at hitting Home Runs and as a Diamondback he hit 121 of them including a 44 Home Run campaign in 2009.  His power puts him on this list but his game was not multi-faceted and it came with a lot of deficiencies.    Reynolds struckout in more than one third of his plate appearances and he exceeded 200 three times with Arizona, all of which were National League leading.  His 223 whiffs in 2009 remain a single season record.  Reynolds also made a lot of errors, as he was a league leader in that twice as a D-Back.  Despite that his power game is strong enough to keep him on this list for a while.

Wade Miley was with the Arizona Diamondbacks for the first four seasons of his career, and in his second season he had his best season in baseball.  In that year, Miley who was still considered a rookie put up 16 Wins and went to the All Star Game.  Miley was the runner-up for the Rookie of the Year to Bryce Harper.

As we are writing this (and you reading this) we want to remind you of two things. The first is that relatively the Arizona Diamondbacks have not been around for very long.

Doug Davis played for the Arizona Diamondbacks for three seasons (2007-09) where he would have a career high 13 Wins in his first season for Arizona.  Davis was not known for his control as he walked a lot of batters (he was the league leader in 2009) but was a constant in the Diamondbacks rotation and would eat a lot of innings.  He won 28 Games with 402 Strikeouts for Arizona.

Junior Spivey had a brief career in Major League Baseball with only five seasons, but half of that was with the Arizona Diamondbacks and his only really good season was when he played there.

While Ryan Roberts only collected 365 Hits in his career in Major League Baseball 281 of them were with Arizona and if you see the pattern, that is enough on a team this young.  Roberts’ best season was in 2011 where he hit 19 Home Runs with 18 Stolen Bases and a .427 Slugging Percentage.  His best work was in the 2011 post season where he went 7 for 20 in the NLCS with 2 Home Runs and had an OPS of 1.050.

Chris Snyder played seven seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks where he would lead the National League Catchers twice in Fielding Percentage.  While he wasn’t regarded highly for his Batting Average he did have two seasons where he had 13 or more Home Runs, which showed that he was capable of some power.

Erubiel Durazo never had a season with Arizona where he had more that 276 At Bats but he when he did play he showed good hitting skills and over a 287 Game career had a very good Slash Line of .278/.390/.528.  Durazo hit a Home Run in the clinching Game 5 of the 2001 NLCS and in the Diamondbacks World Series win he batted .364 with an OBP of .500.

As of this writing, Infielder Ketel Marte has completed three seasons for the Diamondbacks and his versatility in the infield has made him a valuable commodity for the team.  Marte made history as the first player in postseason history to have two triples in a game hit from both sides of the plate, which he accomplished in the 2017 National League Wildcard Game.  In 2018, he would lead the NL in Triples.  This was good, but he would break out in 2019, which skyrockets him us this list.

Daniel Hudson was traded from the White Sox in the middle of the 2010 season where he got off to a great start with a 7 and 1 record and 1.68 ERA.  2011 was pretty solid for Hudson as he had a 16 Win season and was fifth in the NL in Innings Pitched and tenth in SO/BB.  Hudson would also win the Silver Slugger that year.  That is the good news…here is the bad:

In 2006 and 2007, Eric Byrnes had 150 Hits, 20 Home Runs and 20 Stolen Bases and in that latter season he finished 11th in MVP voting.  His 426 Hits is solid for a franchise this young as is his 61 Home Runs.

As of this writing Archie Bradley has spent all of his career (now four seasons) with the Arizona Diamondbacks where he has been both a starter and a reliever.   Bradley is known mostly in baseball for his ample beard, which he had since he became relegated to the bullpen but overall (the beard and his role) has been a better fit for the Pitcher.

After winning a World Series Championship twice with the Toronto Blue Jays and a third title with the Florida Marlins, Devon White arrived to Arizona for the first season of the franchise’s existence, and was only there for that inaugural season, as he would sign with the Pittsburgh Pirates after the season ended.  Still, this was the last good season that White would have and it was good enough to land him a spot, albeit very low, on this list.
