All-Decade Arizona Diamondbacks Outfield

David Peralta, Outfield

  • 2019 Silver Slugger
  • 2019 Gold Glove

Peralta has simply been a mainstay in the D-backs outfield forever.  Another career D-back alongside Nick Ahmed, he has been with the big league club since 2014.  In that time he has slashed .290/.346/.478 with 85 home runs and 330 RBI’s.

With his gold glove win this year, he has cemented his place on the All-Decade team and is a clubhouse favorite.  He always seems to be able to lighten the mood and help the team remember they are playing a game for a living.

A.J. Pollock, Outfield

  • 1x All-Star
  • 2015 Gold Glove

No outfield list would be complete without Pollock.  He was a mainstay roaming around Chase Field since 2012 until last season.  His best season, 2015 was his All-Star and Gold Glove year and also finished 14th in the MVP race.  He has always been solid in all phases of the game.

During his time with the team, he slashed .281/.338/.467 with 74 home runs and 264 RBI’s.  It’s too bad that his time in the desert is over and he is in Los Angeles Dodger blue.

Justin Upton, Outfield

  • 4x All-Star
  • 2011 Silver Slugger

Upton has a few more awards than just the Silver slugger in 2011, but that is the main award he received while with the team.  He was with the D-backs for three of these seasons and definitely left an impact on the organization.  He also finished fourth in MVP voting in 2011.

He slashed .281/.361/.469 with 92 home runs and 294 RBI’s.  Unfortunately Upton, who was seen as the future face of the franchise, never really lived up to those lofty expectations.
