Head coach: Paul Buboltz, third season
2014 record: 16-21 (4-6 Southwest, fourth)
Returning lettermen (starters): Thirteen (nine)
Top players: P A.J. Landis (Sr.), P/OF Nolan Kingham (Sr.), OF Dominic Paratore (Sr.), IF Bryson Stott (Jr.), OF Chris Van Kuren (Sr.), IF Caeden Marin (Sr.)
Outlook: The Diamondbacks already had the makings of a competitive team, but the addition of Kingham (.421, 24 doubles/6-1, 1.65 ERA) and Marin (.395, 7 triples) from Sierra Vista only will help.
Landis (5-6, 4.24 ERA, 63 strikeouts) and Paratore (.379, 28 RBIs) also should be among the leaders.
“We have six seniors, all of whom start,” Buboltz said.
