Arizona Diamondbacks: Top Prospect To Watch In 2023

Corbin Carroll, the top prospect for the Arizona Diamondbacks, is perhaps the most exciting young player to watch this season.

As a five-tool player with electric talent, he has the potential to make a significant impact on the game. Despite facing some setbacks early in his professional career, including a serious shoulder injury, Carroll has quickly ascended to the majors, and his impressive skills have earned him the attention of baseball fans and experts alike.

Carroll's speed is one of his standout attributes, with his 30.7 ft./sec. average sprint speed ranking as the best in the majors.

He uses his speed to cover the field and keep runners honest, making him a valuable asset for any team. What sets Carroll apart, however, is his impressive work at the plate. With his slugging performance improving as he's added strength in professional ball, he has the potential for multiple 20-homer seasons.

Last season, Carroll demonstrated his hitting abilities, slashing an impressive .307/.425/.610 with 24 homers and 31 steals across Double-A and Triple-A.

Despite playing in only 32 big-league games, his talent and potential were enough to earn him an eight-year, $111 million contract extension with the Arizona Diamondbacks. As the season progresses, all eyes will be on Carroll to see if he lives up to the high expectations set for him.

With his raw talent and high ceiling, Corbin Carroll has been ranked the No. 2 prospect in all of baseball.

As he continues to develop his skills and gain experience at the major league level, he will undoubtedly become a household name in the sport.

Fans of the game should keep a close eye on Carroll, as he has the potential to be one of the game's most exciting players for years to come.

For his minor-league career, the 22-year-old holds a .310/.426/.588 triple-slash line, with 28 home runs, 87 RBIs, 52 stolen bases and 134 runs scored across 142 games played.
