Arizona | Diamondbacks draft history
The D-Backs gave up their first and second round picks to sign free agents, Jay Bell and Willie Blair. They drafted mostly high school guys after that. Third-rounder Darryl Conyer, a prep from San Diego, was a great athlete but never figured out how to play baseball. University of Virginia lefty Javier Lopez, drafted in the fourth round, is currently pitching quite well for the Rockies.
Interesting picks after that were catcher J.D. Closser, drafted in the fifth round from an Indiana high school, and Andrew Good, a right-hander drafted in the eighth round from high school in Michigan. Both are fringe guys, but have played well at times. Two sleepers who are also useful are Victor Hall, a prep outfielder drafted in the 12th round from high school in California, and Bret Prinz, a right-hander drafted in the 18th round from Phoenix JC. This draft brought in a few organization guys, but was crippled by the lack of early picks.
