Arizona Diamondbacks: Top 10 Prospects

9. Domingo Leyba SS: In 2012, the Tigers signed the 19-year-old Dominican Republic middle infielder. The DBacks then acquired him in the three-team deal that sent their former SS Didi Gregorius to the New York Yankees. Leyba doesn’t possess any plus tools, but he has been demonstrated the ability to hit professional pitching at a young age. Leyba will most likely be brought up through the system slowly, but look for him to develop his skills along the way. There is a good chance he could develop some power if he works hard the next couple of years, but don’t look for him to steal you 30 bases, as he doesn’t have much speed.
