Ranking the Diamondbacks at the All Star Break | July
logo
At the All Star break, Kelly Johnson is still the MVP for the Diamondbacks, leading the team in AVG, OBP, and SLG (among qualified batters). Johnson ranks just ahead of Chris Young, while Saul Rivera ranks last at #38. Since the last team rankings at the end of May, the biggest movers up are Justin Upton, Miguel Montero, Gerardo Parra, and Blaine Boyer. Moving down since the last rankings are Adam LaRoche and Tony Abreu.  Newcomers Barry Enright and Sam Demel are off to promising starts, and are already in the Top 15. It's no surprise that pitchers make up the seven lowest ranked players on the list.
