Dan Szymborski and Fangraphs released their 2023 ZiPS projections for the Arizona Diamondbacks, and things are getting exciting. We are discussing Corbin Carroll and Brandon Pfaadt being projected to be two of the best players on the team as well as how much stock you can put in these projections. Remember, as Dan says, incorrect projections are either caused by flaws in the physical reality of the universe or by skillful sabotage.


Derek Montilla, occasionally known as The Mayor of PHNX, has covered the Arizona Diamondbacks beat for over 10 seasons. He's a career .093 hitter as an amateur with more errors than runs scored, so everyone decided that the press box was a better fit. The Arizona native is a diehard fan of all Valley sports and can also be found roaming free ringside at local pro wrestling shows.
